3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Israel Drazin TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 4, 2010
Format: Paperback
The popular concept of the existence of a "soul," a person's personality that is separate from the body, which survives the death of the body and lives on for eternity, while accepted as axiomatic by Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, is not in the Hebrew Bible. The idea was taken from ancient pagan cultures and the Greek philosopher Plato was probably the person who was most influential in influencing the popular thinking and helped mold this Christian, Jewish, and Islamic belief. However, not all people of these faiths accepted the idea, and some religious thinkers accepted the teaching of Aristotle.

The popular view about the afterlife is enshrined in the post-Hebrew Bible holy books. The New Testament speaks about Jesus going to heaven. The Quran proclaims "I swear by the day of resurrection." Jews recite a prayer three times daily, "who caused the dead to come to life."

This is the popular view. What does Aristotle say?

Aristotle's teacher, the famous Greek philosopher Plato (428 or 427-348 or 347 BCE), like many people today, believed that the soul exists independent of the body. It the real me that is clothed in the body, which is not me. It may or may not have existed from the beginning of time, but it will survive for all eternity with the same personality it had when it was joined to the body.

In his The Apology, Plato describes his teacher discussing death just before he died. Socrates said that there are two possibilities: either there is nothingness after death or "as people say, a change and migration of the soul from this to another place." He seems to believe the second because he also says that people "must bear in mind this one truth, that no evil can come to a good man either in life or after death, and God does not neglect him.

The product description forewarns that it may not be accurate to this item, and indeed it is not. I'm reviewing the pink print on demand version of Hick's translation. I wanted the Greek text, but this version only has the English translation. And there are better translations available, though perhaps not for this price.

I think it's safe to assume that the vast majority of people are purchasing this book for scholarly purposes and therefore the lack of Bekker numbers and the fact that this is not mentioned in the description of the book makews this book entirely useless.
