Publisher: E. Stock

Description:
Owing heavily to the styles of Plato and Socrates, Boethius's Consolation of Philosophy is a deep investigation into the nature of wisdom and the physical world. Making use of fiction, dialogue, and other Platonic conventions, Boethius's envisioned discussions with Philosophy personified take the reader on a journey of philosophical inquiry and reflection that is as stimulating today as it was in the sixth century.
