Full text not available from this repository.


Christoph Riedweg's book is an engaging introduction to the fundamental contributions of Pythagoras to European culture. To penetrate the intricate maze of lore and ascertain what history can tell us about the philosopher, Riedweg not only examines the written record but also considers Pythagoras withing the cultural, intellectual, and spiritual context of his times. The result is a vivid overview of the life and teachings of a crucial Greek thinker and his most important followers.
