The Memphite Theology as a Source of Ancient Egyptian Theocosmogony

Cover Page


The article focuses on philosophical aspects of theocosmogony in the so called Memphite Theology (the Shabaka Stone), one of the most prominent ancient Egyptian religious texts. The concepts of theogenesis and cosmogenesis appear to be of considerable interest in terms of historico-philosophical reconstruction of the conceptual issues of the Memphite theocosmogony. The author offers historical and philosophical approach to analyzing the theme of creation in this notable source of ancient Egyptian pre-philosophical thought.
