Summary
In this major work the most distinguished historian of ancient philosophy of his generation traces the religious roots of science and systematic speculation. Combining profound insight, Cornford probes the mythic antecedents of such persistent metaphysical concepts as Destiny, God, Soul, Substance, Nature, and Immortality. From Religion to Philosophy is a needed reminder to our day of the intricate connections which continue to exist between critical scientific thought and social and emotional experience --
