Science and Politics in the Ancient World, Paperback / softback Book

Science and Politics in the Ancient World Paperback / softback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Ancient Philosophy series

Description

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.
