Item description for From Myth to Reason?: Studies in the Development of Greek Thought by Richard Buxton...
It is often said that Greek civilization underwent a transition from myth to reason. But what does this assertion mean? Is it true? Were the Greeks special in having evolved our sort of reason, or is that a mirage? In this book, leading experts on ancient Greece explore whether it is possible to maintain a distinction between myth, on the one hand, and philosophy, history, or technology, on the other.
