About the book:

"Cornford arrived at a picture of the origins of Greek philosophy which was historically superior to that which anyone else has so far reached."  The Classical Review. This exploration of early Western philosophy traces the religious roots of science and systematic speculation. Cornford, a distinguished historian of ancient philosophy, combines deep classical scholarship with anthropological and sociological insights to examine the mythic precursors of enduring metaphysical concepts  such as destiny, God, the soul, substance, nature, and immortality.
