  • Athensby Niall Livingstone

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    The citizens of ancient Athens were directly responsible for the development and power of its democracy; but how did they learn about politics and what their roles were within it? In this volume Livingstone argues that learning about political praxis (how to be a citizen) was an integral part of the everyday life of ancient Athenians. In the streets,... more...

  • Diodor und seine "Bibliotheke"by Michael Rathmann

    De Gruyter 2016; US$ 105.64

    Previous research saw Diodorus as an author with modest intellect and a working technique of equal mediocrity, just capable enough of reconstructing forgotten historical works from the Hellenistic period. This study reveals a serious historiographer who brought an entirely original perspective to his "universal history," based on his own background,... more...

And what was it that enabled them to achieve so much?... more...

  • Aristotle and Confucius on Rhetoric and Truthby Haixia Lan

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    The current study argues that different cultures can coexist better today if we focus not only on what separates them but also on what connects them. To do so, the author discusses how both Aristotle and Confucius see rhetoric as a mode of thinking that is indispensable to the human understanding of the truths of things or dao -the-way, or, how both... more...
