What was the ancient Greek view of the Soul?
How did the ancient Greeks conceive the idea of the Soul?
How was it created and what was it composed of?
Is the Soul mortal or immortal? What is the Soul’s destiny after death?
Does it enter other bodies and, if so, does it enter human or animal ones?
This book contains an extensive anthology of ancient Greek texts on the concept of the Soul. In addition to the concept of gods, the Soul prevailed in ancient Greek philosophy and is considered to be one of the most subtle and elevated notions in ancient Greek thought.
The answers to the questions about the Soul are cited as preserved in ancient Greek texts, extending over 13 centuries (from the 8th century BC to the 5th century AD).
