This is the inspirational tale of Sergei Ivanov, affectionately known as Socrates, who first appeared in Dan Millmanâs book, The Way of the Peaceful Warrior. Set against the backdrop of Tsarist Russia, it tells the story of how he acquired his hard-earned wisdom.

Synopsis

The Journeys of Socrates by Dan Millman

In the heart of Tsarist Russia in 1872, an orphaned boy of Jewish and Cossack descent seeks to find his place in the world. The Journeys of Socrates is an odyssey of courage and love, revealing how a boy became a man, a man became a warrior, and how a warrior found peace.

Dan Millman first described the wise enigmatic man he called Socrates in Way of the Peaceful Warrior. Now, in telling the life story of that old service station mechanic, Dan reveals universal truths about all our lives and reminds us of a courage and love as strong and ancient as the roots of the world. From tales of life at a Russian military school to the flight of a fugitive, survival in the wilderness to marriage and the search for family, The Journeys of Socrates is full of tragedy, triumph and hard-earned wisdom from the soul of a peaceful warrior.

Reviews
