Editorial Reviews


"....nice collection.... recommendable without any doubt.... some papers would be useful for students and beginners because of their general presentations. Others are of interest for specialists and researchers...."
--Robert Zaborowski, Ph.D., University of Warmia and Mazury & Polish Academy of Sciences, Metapsychology Online Reviews

Book Description

How does God think? How, ideally, does a human mind function? Must a gap remain between these two paradigms of rationality? Such questions exercised the greatest ancient philosophers, including those featured in this volume of essays by leading scholars: Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, the Stoics and Plotinus.
