About this title:

Synopsis:

This book provides a fresh scholarly perspective on how, over the centuries, Persian kings and noblemen protected and sponsored the religious and intellectual heritage of both Judea and Greece alongside that of Persia itself. The book makes available, for the first time, portraits of the life, upbringing, education, and works of generations of ardently Hellenophile Persian thinkers and scientists, and it demonstrates the pivotal influence they exerted on the works of the emerging European Renaissance and Enlightenment. Covering the period between 546 BC and 1807 AD, the book begins with the conquest of Ionian Greece by Persia when, it is argued, the thinking of Zoroastre - the great ethical monotheist, natural philosopher, and Prophet of Persian Antiquity - influenced and became fused in the ensuing centuries with that of Greece's great philosophers and scientists, Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. The year 1807 AD is the year of the publication of Friedrich Hegel's Phenomenology of the Mind, inspired by the ethical monotheism of Zoroastre and Plato, the De Anima of Aristotle, and On the Rational Soul of the Persian philosopher Avicenna. The book challenges established ideas about the relationship between Persia and Greece, arguing that, contrary to received wisdom, Persia and Greece were not at odds with one another, but were rather intertwined, and these two exercised a profound influence on one another's cultural, aesthetic, philosophical, and scientific thought. Using original documentation in several European languages, the book presents the case for the intellectual marriage of Persia and Greece, and for this fusion to have formed the basis of the European Renaissance and Enlightenment.

About the Author: Minou Reeves, nee Samimi, was born in Tehran in 1946, the daughter of a distinguished Iranian historian of Persian Antiquity. She has a Swiss Baccalaureat in European history and literature, a BA in German and French from the National University of Iran and an MA in German from University College, London. Her career took her from the Royal Iranian Diplomatic Service to working directly for the Persian Crown until the Revolution of 1979. She now lives in England and is the author of Behind the Peacock Throne; Female Warriors of Allah: Women and the Islamic Revolution; and Muhammad in Europe: A Thousand Years of Western Myth-Making.
