Overview

Drawing on Western and non-Western sources from the time of Thales of Miletus (5th century BCE) to the present, fifteen essays that collectively represent a wide ranging attempt to recover the great projects of philosophy, considered by editors Anderson (philosophy, Babson College), Hicks (philosophy, Queens College of the City U. of New York, US), and Witkowski (theory of education and culture, Jagiellonian U., Poland) to be the quest for wisdom. The concepts of mythos and logos are examined within the context of philosophy as disruptive knowledge. Other essays explore the possibility of aesthetic, philosophical, and psychoanalytic insights to gain wisdom or examine how ancient philosophies can be pertinent to present-day questions of the human universal.
