The Path to Truth tells us the story of the first philosophers in the West. Beginning with Thales and culminating in a discussion of the works of Aristotle, Jori’s work provides a clear and engaging introduction to one of the most interesting periods in the history of human thought. The writing is lively and elegant and the author opens up a range of important questions about ancient thought and about modern reception of antiquity. The Path to Truth is an excellent primer for teaching students the value of early philosophy.
