The famous story of Odysseus's long journey home after the Trojan War, comprising some history and a whole lot of mythology, becomes the subject of this classical, yet essentially modern, novel. The trials that King Odysseus must endure in strange lands and the lonely vigil of his Queen Penelope during his absence - all this will be familiar territory for many readers. What makes the novel so compelling are the psychological depths to which the author takes the reader in bringing his characters to life. These are no mythical heroes, but real and immediately recognisable people caught in equally recognisable human situations. The time is 1200 years BCE, but, in terms of human motivations and behaviour, it could just as well be right now. The struggles of the royal couple reach their climax when Odysseus arrives home after twenty years. His challenge is to defeat his enemies, Penelope's suitors, and reclaim his home and kingdom, while leaving behind the warlike past for the sake of a peaceful life with his family. Penelope's challenge is to find a way to accept her husband again and welcome the lessons taught by sacrifice and suffering in pursuit of marital harmony. 'Wanderings is a deft, engaging retelling of a classical story. It revives, with new depth, the characters and accounts of the ancients in a compelling novel that is both comfortable and genuine in it's telling.' Wesley Thompson, editor. About the Author: 'Aleksandar Bajic was born in Serbia. His stories were published in magazines there and as a collection titled Short Stories. He relocated to South Africa in the 1990s. He was educated at the University of Belgrade and the University of South Africa. Aleksandar lives in Johannesburg where several of his stories have been published in the Migrate magazine. Wanderings is his first novel.'

Ever since Vlastos’ “Theology and Philosophy in Early Greek Thought,” scholars have known that a consideration of ancient philosophy without attention to its theological, cosmological and soteriological dimensions remains onesided. Yet, philosophers continue to discuss thinkers such as Parmenides and Plato without knowledge of their debt to the archaic religious traditions. Perhaps our own religious prejudices allow us to see only a “polis religion” in Greek religion, while our modern philosophical openness and emphasis on reason induce us to rehabilitate ancient philosophy by what we consider the highest standard of knowledge: proper argumentation. Yet, it is possible to see ancient philosophy as operating according to a different system of meaning, a different “logic.” Such a different sense of logic operates in myth and other narratives, where the argument is neither completely illogical nor rational in the positivist sense. The articles in this volume undertake a critical engagement with this unspoken legacy of Greek religion. The aim of the volume as a whole is to show how, beyond the formalities and fallacies of arguments, something more profound is at stake in ancient philosophy: the salvation of the philosopher-initiate.
