"Perhaps I am the mummy-like jackal who has come from the four corners of Nun and wishes to bark amongst the dogs of Seshat." Algis Uždavinys (1962-2010) was an incredible scholar of classical theurgy and Greek philosophy. While he claimed that with this book he had "nothing else to say," I can't help but feel his insights were congealing into a not quite yet realized but still marvelous synthesis of ancient thought. This monograph is a exposition of philosophy as Orphean madness, what Plato called erotike mania: the desire for the divine banquet and wisdom. ( )
