David, D (David, Dorin)
Volume: 25; Issue: 3; Pages:43-52
Since the beginning of philosophy in Europe, philosophers have asked themselves several questions of major significance, and arrived at different conclusions. One of these constitutes the subject of this article, which was considered of notable importance, at least during the time of Greek philosophy: the search for an arche (alpha rho chi eta), the first principle of reality. Firstly, this study will take a short look at this aspect of the history of philosophy. Secondly, it will describe and analyze Culianu’s model, as briefly and accurately as possible. Finally, it will investigate Culianu’s theory on the chosen subject (arche), to see if Culianu’s model also applies in the case of philosophy.
