'This brief, readable, and important book is richly informed in folklore and modern scholarship, much of both unfamiliar to classicists. From the Greek evidence itself, whether the known like Homer or the more obscure like Artemidorus, many new and convincing insights are gleaned.'Choice

Review quote

"Since Erwin Rohde published Psyche in 1893, the theme of the soul and its relation to life before and after the death of the body has interested scholars of ancient Greek religion. Jan Bremmer's contribution to the discussion is likely to become definitive, for its conclusions as well as its procedures... For such a brief book it is unusually clear and comprehensive in its treatment and thorough in its examination of primary sources. It extracts Greek materials from the hands of specialists to situate them in the broad context of humanistic study."--Larry J. Alderink, Journal of the History of Religions
