IPTC INFO
CaptionThe word palingenesis or rather palingenesia [Ancient Greek: παλιγγενεσία] may be traced back to the Stoics  who used the term for the continual re-creation of the universe by the Demiurgus [Creator] after its absorption into himself. --- --- --- In philosophy it denotes in its broadest sense the theory [e.g. of the Pythagoreans] that the human soul does not die with the body but is born again in new incarnations. It is thus the equivalent of metempsychosis. Robert Burton in the Anatomy of Melancholy [1628] writes "The Pythagoreans defend metempsychosis and palingenesia that souls go from one body to another." --- --- --- --- --- ---  Philo spoke of Noah and his sons as leaders of a renovation or rebirth of the earth  Plutarch of the transmigration of souls and Cicero of his own return from exile. --- --- --- In the Gospel of Matthew[  Jesus is quoted in Greek using the word "παλιγγενεσία" [palingenesia] to describe the Last Judgment foreshadowing the event of the regeneration of a new world. Palingenesia is thus as much the result of or reason for the Last Judgement as it is directly the Judgement itself. --- --- ---The term has a narrower and more specific use in the system of Schopenhauer who applied it to his doctrine that the will does not die but manifests itself afresh in new individuals. He thus repudiates the primitive metempsychosis doctrine which maintains the reincarnation of the particular soul. --- --- --- The 17th century English physician-philosopher Sir Thomas Browne in his Religio Medici [1643] declared a belief in palingenesis stating A plant or vegetable consumed to ashes to a contemplative and school Philosopher seems utterly destroyed and the form to have taken his leave for ever: But to a sensible Artist the forms are not perished but withdrawn into their incombustible part where they lie secure from the action of that devouring element.
HeadlinePalingenesis is a concept of rebirth or re-creation used in various contexts in philosophy theology politics and biology. This includes referring to reincarnation and Christian spiritual rebirth symbolized by baptism.
