Fragments of Heraclitus:
“To be wise is one thing:
to know the thought that directs all things through all things.”

“We should not act like the children of our parents.”

This bright, deep, meditative jewel-like study brings Heraclitus to life in a new way, and shows him to be one of the principal sources of Western mystical thinking. From Geldard's point of view, the study of Heraclitus is not just an academic matter but, on the contrary, presents us with very real existential and phenomenological challenges.

The book includes new translations of all the essential fragments. Geldard, through his exploration of Heraclitus, shows us,
“The more that human beings openly and humbly seek higher knowledge, the more they develop the power to perceive it, until finally they penetrate to the hidden universal order. The result of this penetration is knowledge of the Logos, that 'which directs all things through all things.' The acquisition of this knowledge is not an event; it is a stance in the world. It is Being in its fullness.”
