  • 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.

This neglect extends even to Hesiod, though Hesiod is of central importance for the didactic tradition quite generally,... more...

    Gunther Martin examines the references to religion in the speeches of Demosthenes and other Athenian orators in the 4th century BC.
