Product description

Although Greek authors treat philosophy and theology in the closest contiguity, most scholarship still reflects the 19th century prejudice according to which philosophy is a rational enterprise, while theology is a dogmatic discipline. Yet, as this volume demonstrates, Greek philosophy emerges from and remains closely linked to the archaic religious experience. Spanning Greek thought from Homer to Neo-Platonism, this anthology is essential reading for those interested in ancient Greek philosophy in the context of its theological, soteriological and cosmological concerns.
