"Resisting mightily the lure of logical, mathematical, or scientific philosophy, Luchte offers a poetico-phenomenological exploration of the doctrine that souls migrate to another body when the old one dies, as an intimate philosophical interpretation or hermeneutics of tragic existence. His emphasis on the body and praxis in the Pythagorean bios precludes the link with Plato that so many philosophers long for. Among his topics are the emergence of mystic cults and the immortal soul, the alleged critique of Pythagoras by Parmenides, the Pythagorean divine between earth and sky, the Platonic rupture, and Plotinus and the ascent of the soul toward the one." -Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.
