"An excellent book and a pleasure to read. Readers are encouraged to engage with the judiciously chosen material, and Warren makes the Presocratics stimulating and exciting. An ideal book for an undergraduate class."—Steven Makin

"James Warren's new book is an attractive and worthwhile addition to the literature on Presocratic thought currently available to students. Among its greatest assets are a splendid 'introduction to reading Presocratic philosophy'; excellent chapters on the Milesians, Xenophanes, Heraclitus, and Empedocles; engagement with the most recent scholarly literature; clarity of expression; and a focus on the philosophically interesting question."—J. H. Lesher, University of North Carolina
