“There were those in the ancient world whose experience of life made them unable to accept the comfortable old belief that the gods rewarded virtue and punished vice, and led them to seek solutions outside the cultic framework of polytheistic religion. They had begun to ask questions which myth could not answer.”
“Ultimate, universal questions were being asked, and answers were being sought from a new quarter - the human mind’s critical analysis of material phenomena.” This means that answers were no longer sought in revelation and divination, but through the methodical use of one’s intelligence.
