Philosophy Before the Greeks by Van De Mieroop, Marc
Philosophy Before the Greeks: The Pursuit of Truth in Ancient Babylonia
by Van De Mieroop, Marc
 
This innovative intellectual history of the ancient Near Eastern world explores Babylonian approaches to knowledge in three areas: the study of language, which in its analysis of the written word formed the basis of all logic; the art of divination, which interpreted communications between gods and humans; and the rules of law, which confirmed that royal justice was founded on truth.
