Too often students today think that Plato's dialogues concerning Socrates have no relevance to the present issues confronting humankind. It is mistakenly believed that Socrates' quest is dated and that we as species have outgrown such philosophical speculations. However, this is not the case, since the Socratic search for knowledge is a perennial one and we can learn much by closely reading what these early Greek thinkers pondered during their time.
In this book, we have included excerpts from the Socratic dialogues (as penned by his most famous student, Plato) and Professor Andrea Diem-Lane's brilliant treatise on the "Cerebral Mirage" which brings Plato and Socrates up to date by showing how the latest findings in quantum theory and neuroscience substantiate much of early Greek skepticism, particularly concerning how easily we can be deceived by our various forms of certainty.
