"Snell's magnum opus The Discovery of the Mind was in 1946 important for the reorientation of the postwar generation" wrote DIE ZEIT upon Bruno Snell's 90th birthday in 1986. His continuously expanded compilations, dealing with "studies on the formation of the European spirit by the Greeks", have since been translated into many world languages. Sixty years after their, first publication they have not lost inspiration. For his student Walter Jens, The Discovery of the Mind is "the work of a Hellenist, who is also an excellent writer."
