Modern Greek Thought: Three Essays Dealing with Philosophy, Critique of Science, and Views of Man’s Nature and Destiny

   
by Constantine Cavarnos

“The present book, the first of its kind, is based on data which I gathered during the last twenty-two years. [...]Besides introducing one to modern Greek philosophy from the middle of the eighteenth century to the present through a discussion of its distinctive characteristics, it acquaints one with the standpoint of many outstanding Greek intellectuals of the same period — philosophers, theologians, scientists, poets and other literary writers — regarding the capabilities and value of the positive sciences, and the question of the nature and destiny of man. [...]This book is addressed to all persons who are interested in modern Greek civilization, as well as in the closely related cultures of Greek antiquity and Byzantium, or are concerned with the human situation and the perennial vital questions.”
—“Preface”
