The Veil of Isis: An Essay on the History of the Idea of Nature

Nearly twenty-five hundred years ago the Greek thinker Heraclitus supposedly uttered the cryptic words “Phusis kruptesthai philei.” How the aphorism, usually translated as “Nature loves to hide,” has haunted Western culture ever since is the subject of this engaging study by Pierre Hadot.
