Follow-Up to Derveni

In the ancient greeks on 19/07/2011 at 7:52 am

With background on the Derveni papyrus available, what else can we conclude? Science (natural theology) and philosophy began as mutations of religious and magical cosmogeny and cosmology, respectfully for the empirical and metaphysical realms: one may have more direct knowledge than others through a particular incantation, secret ritual, or method. So I conjecture, mainstream philosophy continues that practice to this day.
