Many years ago, the author came across a volume of Cicero’s “Letters to Atticus” in a library. While he was curious about certain passages, he only thumbed through the book with no particular purpose in mind. What he found on the pages, however, woke his interest and was to be the seed for his book on seduction. Starting with Cicero’s works, he moved on to other Roman literature, first the lyricists Catullus and Juvenal, then to Horace and the literary circle around Maecenas and Augustus. It was in these book, where he discovered affinities between the conditions of society of former times and those of the present. He then finally arrived at the philosophical schools, which played an exceedingly important and largely underestimated role in the contemporary lives of the Roman and Greeks.
The book “On Seduction (2)” by Reinhold Urmetzer essentially concerns itself with classical thought, which has occupied the author’s interests up to the immediate present. In his book, he asks the question which direction Western thinking is taking in the 21st century and whether that direction is a good one. The book also looks into the question what kind of influence the dominance of artificial intelligence might have on the future of philosophy. Will it make philosophy superfluous? The author merges the thoughts of classics with modern life and created a book that will appeal to people who love philosophy and are worried about its future.
