Walking with Plato
Beskrivelse: All truly great thoughts are conceived while walking.' So said Friedrich Nietzsche, and so thought philosophy buff Gary Hayden as he set off on Britains most challenging trek: to walk from John oGroats to Lands End.But it wasnt all quaint country lanes, picture-postcard villages and cosy bed and breakfasts. Disillusioned after another gruelling day, his feet blistered and his back aching from lugging camping gear, he sought solace in the words of Plato: 'Everything that deceives may be said to enchant.'In this humorous, uplifting and delightfully British tale, Gary finds solitude and weary limbs bring him closer to the wisdom of the worlds greatest thinkers. Recalling Rousseaus reverie, Bertrand Russells misery, Epicurus joy in simplicity and Thoreaus love of the wilderness, Walking with Plato offers a breath of fresh, country air for anyone craving an escape from the humdrum of everyday life.
