553pp, cloth, jacket in plastic shrinkwrap, 27x20.5 new This research, a unique compilation of scattered material, focused on a reconstruction of the sources of the European system of values embedded in the philosophy of Greco-Roman culture. The author is convinced that the Aegean cultures of the Bronze and Iron Ages are to be seen as the dissociated links in a long historical chain uniting an infant Europe with the maternal womb of Eurasia. He carried out on the spiritual world of the Bronze Age man, his relation to nature, his notions of life and death, space and time, his critical values and aesthetic tastes. A detailed description of Greek society and its culture during the period of the so-called Dark Ages is given, and finally special attention has been paid to the critical 8th century BC, the century of Homer, which marks the actual starting point of the history of Ancient Greece. The significance of this manuscript is that all evidence that excavations have revealed, has been incorporated.
