Abstract
This book provides a comprehensive study of the history of ancient Greek philosophy. Though intended for the general reader, the advanced scholar will also find fresh new insights here into ancient Greek philosophy. I bring a unique perspective to bear on the subject, based on my prior studies of speculative metaphysics, Nietzsche, consciousness, psychedelics, mysticism and the philosophy of religion, as well as my studies of music, logic, mathematics and physics. The final chapter concludes with an overview of the methods employed by Analytic and Continental philosophy since WW II. Taking a similar approach to Michel Foucault, who showed how modern institutions produce power-knowledge, I explain how philosophy went wrong in the twentieth century as it became institutionalized in the modern research university.
