    One thought on “A Revised Poetry of Western Philosophy”

    1. This book is very entertaining and at the same time thought provoking I loved the abstracts as a refresher but found it was fun to read the abstract last testing my memory They certainly add to the universal appeal of the book although the content stands well on its own As a mathematician I enjoyed the nuances of the reimagining and couldn t help but be amused by the author s creative mind I found the author biography is as fascinating as the book An author to follow and a good read.

    2. I think it was a mistake for UP to label this poetry flash fiction and issue it in the Pitt Poetry Series Better, I ll argue, to focus on the content than the form and consider this a creative inventive way to approach philosophy.
