Modern Greek Philosophers on the Human Soul: Selections from the writings of Seven Representative Thinkers of Modern Greece—Benjamin of Lesvos, Vrailas-Armenis, Skaltsounis, St. Nectarios, Louvaris, Kontoglou, and Theodorakopoulos—on the Nature and Immortality of the Soul, translated from the original Greek and edited with a Preface, Introduction, Notes, and Glossary.

Second Edition, Revised and considerably enlarged

By Constantine Cavarnos

“As inheritors of both the ancient Greeks and of the Byzantines, modern Greek philosophers have stressed the reality and dignity of the human soul, and have sought to prove its incorporeal nature and immortality. [...]The method to be followed by the philosopher in his attempt to know the soul is that of reason and inner observation, introspection. This is the method employed by the five philosophers whose teaching on the human soul is presented in this volume. Outer, sense-observation is of no avail here, as the soul is not something external, visible, but something internal, invisible.”
