" Veyne's] present book has some kinship with his sprightly theoretical work "Comment on ecrit l'histoire"; and he declares that its aim was to provoke reflection on the way our conception of truth is built up and changes over the centuries. . . . The style is brilliant and exhilarating."--Jasper Griffin, "Times Literary Supplement"
