"This is a comprehensive, authoritative and innovative account of Pythagoras and Pythagoreanism, one of the most enigmatic and influential philosophies in the West," notes a synopsis. "In twenty-one chapters covering a timespan from the sixth century B.C. to the seventeenth century A.D., leading scholars construct a number of different images of Pythagoras and his community, assessing current scholarship and offering new answers to central problems."
