This is a great book. It weaves a story of how modern science, law, and religions have been affected by these metaphysical discoveries of these ancient Philosophers. The bibliography is a testament to the man's breadth of knowledge. He also headed up the Plato Manuscripts, and was a Yale Professor for at least 20 years (Philosophy).
I would like to note that the ULAN Press version of this book is missing 3 pages (1, 4, 54)! Luckily, the google version has these pages, I have also uploaded the missing pages on Archive.org. I actually went to my university (CSUDH) and pulled a classic copy of this book and got the pages I needed.
