The Greek Mode of Thought in Western Philosophy

Portada
Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press, 1984 - 340 páginas
Maintaining that the Greek mode of thought is, in essence, the tendency to establish principles of mediation on rational grounds, the author argues that the course of philosophy from Parmenides to Hegel reveals that reason itself always gives rise to sceptical criticism that overturns whatever principles of mediation have been established.
