Curator Reviews


My neighbor happens to be a retired Italian philosophy teacher, and I would sometimes see his silhouette through the curtains writing at his desk late at night. We eventually became friends and I asked him for some lessons. "We must start from the beginning," he said, and that was Heraclitus, also known as The Obscure — rightly so: three years laters we're still studying this book. (I recommend Marcovitch's 1967 edition. Of all the books I own, this might be my favorite.) - Branco
