SKU: 9798359649278 Category: Tag: Product ID: 1038431


The Tablet of Cebes is an ancient text (probably first century CE) that describes a large tablet or plaque set up in a temple of Kronos by a follower of the spiritual path of Pythagoras and Parmenides. An old sage answers the viewers’ questions and explains the mysterious images and how they show the way to live well and happily. At a first level of interpretation the text teaches Stoicism, but at a deeper level the ancient spiritual traditions of Pythagoras, Parmenides, and Plato. This new translation of The Tablet includes an introduction and sixteen colored illustrations adapted from a woodcut of the tablet by Hans Holbein the Younger. This illustrated edition of this small classic is ideal for study and contemplation.
