EMILIOS BOURATINOS studied law in Athens and philosophy in Innsbruck, Austria. He has published numerous essays and written seven books in Greek. The last three are Minoan Religion, Consciousness and the Environment in Ancient Greece, and The End of Reason. He was the managing editor of the cultural magazine Dialogos for 23 years in Athens. He is especially keen on an interdisciplinary science of consciousness, which will be conscious of itself, so that it can contribute something substantial toward a much-needed change of direction in both science and society.
