Description

Although it purports to be a commentary on Plato's and Aristotle's relation to the pre-Socratic philosophers, Michelstaedter's deeply personal book reflects the author's struggle to make sense of modern life. Within hours of completing this doctoral thesis, 23-year-old Michelstaedter shot himself to death, but the text he left behind has proved to be one of the most influential studies in modern rhetoric."Aunque presume ser un comentario sobre la relacion de Platon y Aristoteles con los filosofos presocraticos, este libro sumamente personal de Michelstaedter refleja sus deseos por encontrarle el sentido a la vida moderna. Horas despues de haber terminado esta tesis doctoral, el joven de 23 anos tomo su propia vida, pero el texto que habia escrito se ha convertido en uno de los estudios mas influyentes sobre la retorica moderna.
