Item Description...
Herodotus' Inquiries should be regarded as our best and most complete document for pre-Socratic philosophy. Without being a work of philosophy, its plan and intention cannot be understood apart from philosophy. Here an attempt is made to uncover Herodotus' plan and intention and to link them with their philosophic roots. This attempt requires that Herodotus' way of telling a story be examined, for Herodotus primarily reveals himself in the stories themselves and not in the moral he sometimes draws from them. Once one sees the importance Herodotus himself places in his own Inquiries, his account of Egypt, which has long been a stumbling block on any interpretation, can be appreciated; and Egypt in turn supplies the basis for understanding Book II on Persia and IV on Scythia and Libya. These three books prove to be the core of the Inquiries, for they establish the necessary conditions for both Greekness and the understanding of Greekness, and hence for the following five books on the Persian Wars.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Tocqueville meets Strauss  Feb 12, 1999
"What is the nature of the search? you ask. Really it is very simple, at least for a fellow like me; so simple that it is easily overlooked. The search is what anyone would undertake if he were not sunk in the everydayness of his own life. This morning, for example, I felt as if I had come to myself on a strange island. And what does a castaway do? Why, he pokes around the neighborhood and he doesn't miss a trick. To become aware of the possibility of the search is to be onto something. Not to be onto something is to be in despair." W.P.
Benardete is back!  Feb 11, 1999
Finally, we have a readily available printing of Benardete's Herodotean Inquires. Students and scholars of Herodotus have known for a long time that this is simply the best interpretation available. Unlike the "stuffy" classicists, Benardete attempts to follow the trail of Herodotus' argument (logos) through the apparently cozy memoirs of the world's first jet-setter. Herodotus, it is suggested, does not rise to the level of the great Greek philosphers, but neither do we, and consequently we have a great deal to learn from his most remarkable inquiry.
