3.0 out of 5 stars Not light reading!, 31 Mar. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Presocratic Philosophers: A Critical History with a Selection of Texts (Paperback)
This is an extremely thorough and well-informed book covering almost everything you might need to know about pre-socratic philosophy. However, it is EXTREMELY scholarly and text-book in it's format. If you need something to use for studying then it would be fine. If you want to actually read a book cover to cover then it's not for you. Also, it it is heavily biased towards the protoscientific aspects of pre-socratic philosophy, and is very light on areas such as existence; being and such like.

I have given it 3 stars because it didn't suit my needs, but that's not to say it's not a good book for different needs.
