9781419627736: Cosmos of the Ancients: The Greek Philosophers on Myth and Cosmology

The Greek philosophers lived in a time when the gods and the myths about them were very much alive, and there was no scientific evidence dismissing them. This book explores to what extent the Greeks were able to question their own mythology. This is done by examining the cosmology of their philosophers, and what roles they allowed therein for the gods.

The book presents every Greek philosopher, from Thales to Euhemerus, whose views on cosmology and religion are at all known. It also contains an introduction discussing how the material can be interpreted and systematized, and what conclusions can be drawn about the world views and metaphysical beliefs of the time.

About the Author:

Stefan Stenudd is a Swedish author and historian of ideas, who researches the patterns of thought in creation myths and cosmological beliefs, as well as Aristotle's Poetics.

He has written books of both fiction and non-fiction. Among the latter is a commented translation of Tao Te Ching, the Taoist classic, and a little encyclopedia of life energy concepts. As a practitioner of the gentle Japanese martial art aikido since 1972, he has also written books about the martial arts and the principles behind them.
