Fast Company on no logos
Upon closer examination, the various translations of the word logos, a common Greek word (λόγος), reveal that it has deep spiritual roots. In fact, the concept of logos can be found in most of the great works describing the history of Christianity, as well as throughout the literature on religion and Western philosophy.
In this regard, one of the first references to logos as "spirit" came from the Greek philosopher, Heraclitus, around 500 BC. The logos of Heraclitus has been interpreted in various ways, as the "logical," as "meaning," and as "reason"; but, as the German philosopher Martin Heidegger has pointed out, "What can logic ... do if we never begin to pay heed to the logos and follow its initial unfolding?" To Heraclitus, this "initial unfolding" viewed the logos as responsible for the harmonic order of the universe, as a cosmic law which declared that "One is All and Everything is One."
