In the final chapter of this unusually rigorous study Professor Kirk speculates on the manner in which an age dominated by myth gave way to an age dominated by philosophy.
Myths in general, and Greek myths in particular are examined, with a discussion of the transformation of myth to philosophy.

I really wanted to give this a try after reading the description. I barely got into chapter 1 before I realized this wasn't going to be a statement of fact or research, but rather a book devoted to the laziness and stupidity of others (in the opinion of the author). He spends so much time belittling the work of others and making snarky comments about lackluster research, it makes one not want to indulge in his self-egrandizing, matter-of-fact, holier-than-thou style of writing. All in all this was very disappointing. If Kirk had spent less time being petty and more time discussing his thesis the text would have been much more valuable, and much more interesting.Was this review helpful?
