A Man for Our TimesBook - 2011
Socrates was undeniably one of the greatest thinkers of all time, yet he wrote nothing. Throughout his life - and indeed until his very last moment alive - Socrates fully embodied his philosophy in thought and deed. It is through the story of his life that readers can fully grasp his powerful actions and ideas. In his highly acclaimed style, historian Paul Johnson masterfully disentangles centuries of scarce sources to offer a riveting account of a man whose thought still shapes the way people live their lives today.
