About-

Methexiology is not a particular theory, but rather a general philosophical orientation. Therefore, in Methexiology: Philosophical Theology and Theological Philosophy for the Deification of Humanity, Nicolas Laos elucidates the significance of methexiology for the study of ontology, epistemology, ethics, philosophical psychology, theory of justice, philosophy of history, and philosophy of religion. Laos argues that, faced with the modern and the postmodern crises of meaning, we need a new myth, a new spiritual formula, for the resacralization of humanity and the cosmos, without restoring defunct totems, without using tales as "cheap" substitutes for the lack of a life-giving myth, and without negating history. In his Methexiology, Laos studies the "genealogy" of the modern and the postmodern crises of meaning, and, based on his new interpretation of classical Greek philosophy and Hesychasm, proposes methexiology as a way of overcoming the crises of meaning and as a way of resacralizing humanity and the cosmos through a new metaphysically grounded humanism.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"A wonderful book that sets out the palpable connection between ancient Greek philosophy and the teachings of Christ. Through elucidating the teachings of the Hesychast movement in medieval Christianity, Dr. Laos sets forward how the Platonic and Aristotelian teachings of man's striving for union with the Divine prepared the way and set the stage for Jesus. In the process, we may gain an understanding of how it was God's will to use the Greek philosophical precepts to prepare the way for Christ's Light."
--Nicholas F. S. Papanicolaou, author of Bring Down That Wall; Grand Master of the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, Knights of Malta; cofounder of the World Public Forum "Dialogue of Civilizations"

"A profound enquiry into the foundations of philosophical theology and a brilliant theological approach to philosophy. The present book by Dr. Nicolas Laos is a must-read for philosophers, theologians, and the researchers of the significant yet elusive interplay between spirituality and politics."
--Roman V. Romachev, author of Competitive Intelligence, Officer (ret.) of the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation, and CEO and Founder of R-Techno Group (Moscow)

"Dr. Nicolas Laos' book intends to revolutionize our way of thinking by providing us with a new unconventional proposal: to transcend our Westphalian interstate balance-of-power model and to orient international-political thought toward a humanity-centered world order model, in the context of which power will be conceptualized and distributed according to mechanisms of self-consciousness and of communication among conscious human systems."
--Vassilis D. Kopsacheilis, Political Risk Consultant (Athens), author of The Geoentrepreneurs' Empire
