Description

The enigma of Pythagoras is everything all at once: history, novel, investigation. In it, Pythagoras emerges from an Ancient Greek context which is more fascinating than ever. Olympic hero, student of Thales, friend of the Pharaoh Amasis, geometrician, philosopher, musician and astronomer, Pythagoras is the embodiment of man’s grandeur. Together with him we tread the earth of Samos, Olympia, Tyr, Jerusalem, Alexandria, Babylon and Héraklion... The beautiful and brilliant Theano would complete the happiness of this already mature man. Wife, mother, student then mentor, this exceptionally modern woman played a vital role throughout her life. The school which she founded with Pythagoras was one of tolerance and openness to the world. Da Vinci, Kepler and a great many others were fascinated and inspired by the science of Pythagoras who already knew that the earth was round and that it revolved around the sun. This book is a historical study to be read in the same way as a novel, a sensitive portrait of an extraordinary man. The Pythagoras enigma recounts the thrilling adventure of human knowledge, at the dawn of our civilisation.
