In this ebook i've got attempted to increase extra the guidelines expressed in my earlier paintings, among adventure and Metaphysics, which used to be released within the related sequence in 1975. a number of years have handed because the unique Polish version (and then 1 the Italian translation) of this ebook seemed. the truth that the relevant principles expressed in it have withstood, as I see it, the brunt of feedback, has led me to stay primarily with the unique textual content. major alterations have, even if, been brought. First, i've got additional an Appendix containing the unique model of a paper I provided on the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin in June 1988 and a quick postscript to that paper bearing on reviews made in the course of dis cussions on the Kolleg. enable me in brief clarify the cause of this addition. lately the panorama for ancient and philosophical in terpretation of the evolution of clinical wisdom has altered.
