Author: Erazim V Kohák
Publisher: Chicago, Illinois : The University of Chicago Press, 1987 ©1984

Summary:
The Quest of this volume is one of recalling what we have thus hidden from ourselves. It is a philosopher's book, deeply indebted to the cultural heritage of three millennia of Western thought. It is also a book of philosophy, though in a sense far older than the current acceptation of that term. In a technological age, philosophy, too tends to convince itself as a techne--from Prolegomenon.
