Adam Nicolson – How to Be – Life Lessons from the Early Greeks
Grounded in the belief that places give access to minds, How To Be reintroduces us to our earliest thinkers through the lands they inhabited. Award winning author Nicolson, uncovers ideas of personhood with Sappho on Lesbos and plays with paradox in Southern Italy with Zeno. Sparkling with maps, photographs, and artworks, this book provides a new way of understanding the origins of Western thought, and its relevance to the very same questions we ask today.
