That's Sir Walter Scott's novel Old Mortality (about Covenanters and Montrose,) and an anthology (titled Early Greek Philosophy) of of the fragments left of dudes like Parmenides, Heraclitus, Empedocles and Democritus. Old Mortality, the anthology of Greek philosophers edited by someone named Scott, actually does sound fascinating. By modern standards about the irrelevance of mundane fact, someone could go ahead and write that sucker. He or she would at leas get internet kudos.
Heh. Well, I found Old Mortality on Gutenberg. Now I guess I need to look for the Early Greek Philosophy book.
