Science and Politics in the Ancient World Paperback / softback
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Ancient Philosophy series
This book, originally published in 1965, discusses the political implication of the spread of science in antiquity.
It reveals how the real Greek spirit of scientific research was crushed by Plato and Aristotle, long thought-of as searchers for truth.
Historian such as Polybius and Livey and the poets Pinder and Virgil are seen in a new light when set against this background of social struggle.
