Originally published in 1951, this ambitious volume constitutes an exploration into the roots of European thought. Whilst it predominantly examines Greek and Roman ideas, the text also contains allusions to Norse, Celtic, Jewish, Indian, Chinese and Christian sources. Through careful analysis a synthetic approach is developed, one which emphasises the abiding relevance of ancient thought for interpreting the fundamental questions of existence. Exhaustive notes, a large general index, and an index of translated words are included. This is a complex and fascinating book that will be of value to anyone with an interest in classics, literature, philosophy, or the history of ideas.

The development of modern Europe, through such events as the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, the Enlightenment, the French Revolution, and the rise of industrial capitalism, is often seen in terms of the triumph of individualism. Yet the precise stages in the evolution of the European individual remain one of the most elusive aspects of the region's history. In this broad and thought-provoking investigation, Aaron Gurevich, one of Russia's leading historians, examines the growth of individual consciousness through European history, and assesses its impact on key social and political events.

Hans-Georg Gadamer is one of the leading exponents of hermeneutics, with a formidable influence on thinking in the humanities. The two main foci of his work have been Greek philosophy, especially Plato, and hermeneutics, but his influences range through many sources, from Kant to Heidegger. This volume contains Gadamer's intellectual autobiography, essays by leading philosophers, Gadamer's replies to each essay, and a bibliography of Gadamer's writings.

This book is an investigation into the Western philosophical tradition to determine the balance struck between the knowing of science, and a more personal, intuitive, preconceptual or primordial knowing. The Greeks made a once-and-for-all breakthrough into a scientific mode of thought, utilizing techniques of definition, syllogism, logic and a precise notion of science. In the Greek ideal of science, the medieval attempt to make theology the queen of the sciences, and modern triumph of the physical sciences, such scientific knowing has held the primacy in ancient, medieval and modern thought throughout the Western philosophical tradition. But that does not exhaust the story of human knowing. Personal knowing, artistic knowing, religious knowing, and the more intuitive modes of Eastern thought are all authentic and know more than they can say. At a time when Enlightenment rationalism and even science is coming under increased questioning, this is a timely survey of the forgotten resources of the Western tradition.
