Contemporary Encounters with Ancient Metaphysics

Greenstine and Johnson, the contributing editors of the volume, set the scene for the collection with the ancient tales of Thales, Heraclitus, Pyrrho, and Lucretius. These four tales convey the force of metaphysical thinking, a force that overwhelms everyday life. The raw thought, pensée brute, of pure metaphysics is the shared site of the volume’s eighteen contemporary encounters with ancient metaphysics. After framing the work within continental philosophy, the essay concludes with a survey of the contents of each essay.
