EROS AND PSYCHE AN ESSAY ON THE CONSTITUTION AND DESTINY OF MAN BY Benchara Branford JNIVERSITY OF LONDON PRESS, LTD. 10 ii WARWICK LANE, LONDON, E. C. 4 934 rrintcd in Great liritaiu for the UNiVKitsiTY OF LONDON PRESS, LTD., by IIAZELL, WATSON AND VINEY, LTD., London and Aylesbury. DEDICATED IN LOVE AND GRATITUDE TdW MY WIFE AND DAUGHTER, WHO HAVE SHOWN ME THE GLORY OF NOBLE WOMANHOOD TO ORIENTAL READERS THE scope of this work is sufficiently indicated by the sub-title. The title itself, Eros and Psyche is purely symbolic, and appropriate to the Hellenic tradition in the philosophy of the Occident. The Orient has its parallel symbolisms in the Persian Zuhrah and Salaman the Indian Adi-Buddha and Prajna and the Chinese Tang and Tin, These four symbolic myths, fruitful of thought, are open to a variety of interpretations yet all are susceptible, it is believed, of a significance concordant with the present essay. Admirably harmonising with the macrocosm-microcosm postulate of the essay, the circular symbol on the title-page is taken from the profound medieval philosopher, Chu Hi, who signified thereby the revelation of the Supreme source of existence, wherein all the extremes meet symbolised by the circle, through the intervolutionary union of the Yang and the Yin symbolised by light and darkness.
