Plato and Aristotle both died in the fourth century B.C., but the debates that these great philosophers instigated continue to shape western civilization down to this very day. In his grand new book The Cave and The Light, Arthur Herman (Freedom's Forge; The Idea of Decline in Western History; Gandhi & Churchill) first explains how their fundamental disagreements about the purpose and methods of intellectual inquiry were rooted in their backgrounds and personalities; then describes how subsequent thinkers have reframed their dialectic disagreements. A comprehensive look at one of the core debates in world history. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
