 Emilios Bouratinos: Homeopathy of the Mind : How the Greeks Defeated Rationality

In both ancient Egyptian and early Greek religion, open religious explication was avoided in favour of the use of symbol, myth and ritual to cure the objectifying mind of its tendency to view the world in a fragmentary way. Although he used different methods, Socrates' aim was identical: to lead people towards an unrestricted awareness of reality. Through his philosophy, Socrates links us to the ancient homeopathic religious practices which we so badly need to recover today, if we are to successfully meet the crisis our civilization is now facing.
