  • Theios Sophistèsby Kristoffel Demoen; Danny Praet

    BRILL 2008; US$ 196.00

    In this collection of interpretative essays on Flavius Philostratus? Vita Apollonii , leading scholars and younger critics make for a combination of methodological continuity and innovation. The wide range of approaches does justice to the text?s high level of literary, historical and philosophical-religious sophistication. more...

  • Tierbilder aus dem ersten Jahrhundertby Ragnar Kinzelbach

    De Gruyter 2009; US$ 140.00

    The Artemidorus papyrus, originating from Alexandria at the beginning of the 1st century A.D., contains on its verso 41 drawings by one hand, thereof 38 sketches of animals (some comprising two species each, thus resulting in 44 species), most of them labelled with their Greek names. As visible from the ?title? on the papyrus itself, it... more...

  • Plato and Hesiodby G. R. Boys-Stones; J. H. Haubold

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 94.99

    It hardly needs repeating that Plato defined philosophy partly by contrast with the work of the poets. What is extraordinary is how little systematic exploration there has been of his relationship with specific poets other than Homer. This neglect extends even to Hesiod, though Hesiod is of central importance for the didactic tradition quite generally,... more...

  • Divine Talkby Gunther Martin

    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 134.99

    Gunther Martin examines the references to religion in the speeches of Demosthenes and other Athenian orators in the 4th century BC. In Part I he demonstrates the role religion plays in the rhetorical strategy of speeches in political trials: his main argument is that speakers had to be consistent in their approach to religion throughout their career.... more...

  • Menanderby Malcolm Heath

    Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 198.99

    This book undertakes a fundamental assessment of Menander of Laodicea ('Menander Rhetor'), and of the nature and functions of rhetoric in later antiquity (second to fifth centuries AD). It examines Menander's fragments, collected here for the first time, in detail, showing that he was primarily an expert on judicial and deliberative oratory;... more...

  • Götter, Mythen, Philosophenby Fabio Berdozzo

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 182.00

    One of Lucian?s main topics is the critical observation of religious life. His criticism of religious ideas, however, takes place exclusively as dispute with the forms and models of literary tradition. Even when discussing the positions of philosophers, he remains a writer; his gods are literary gods. Nowhere in his oeuvre is there evidence... more...

  • Decorumby Jan Dietrich Müller

    De Gruyter 2011; US$ 126.00

    Appropriateness is the key to persuasion: a speech can only be convincing when it takes into account the opinions of the audience and the concrete situation. But how can rhetorical theory ? which like any other theory has to abstract ? grasp appropriateness as a phenomenon? What concepts did it develop in order to achieve this? The central... more...
