This is an afrocentric re-examination of Greek philosophy, posing the thesis that it was, in plain, stolen from Egypt i. James' theory is that classical Greek philosophy was derived from an Ancient Egyptian mystery tradition, possibly concealing advanced scientific knowledge that the Greeks misinterpreted. James' approach to the topic is informed by a wide range of authorities, some classic , others a bit more esoteric. He makes some startling claims, e. He is dead serious about this perceived slight by the Greeks, and even exhorts us to boycott Greek letter fraternities.
The premise of this book is that the Ancient Greeks stole information i. James backs this up with classical and esoteric authorities, making some bold claims as he goes along, such as the fact that Alexander the Great and Aristotle plundered hundreds of books from the Great Library of Alexandria, which were later attributed to Aristotle. Lots of notes N. B inbetween as well as a lot of nested sub paragraphs. Characteristics of Greek Philosophy The term Greek philosophy, to begin with is a misnomer, for there is no such philosophy in existence.
