"This study is of cardinal interest to all who wish to become aware of the larger ironies and conflations within the philosophic schools of the ancient world: how the words of the Presocratics, Plato, and Aristotle have been kidnapped by their commentators for the creation and maintenance of new orthodoxies that none of the original thinkers would have recognized as their own. For its semiotic savvy alone, as well as for its awareness of the oral-aural mindset overtaken by the new impact of the written word, this study amply repays both the lay reader and the scholar of the history of philosophy."-Andres Mata Editor, "El Universal" and Regional Director, Inter-American Press Association
