Ancient Greek History and Contemporary Social Science, Hardback Book

Ancient Greek History and Contemporary Social Science Hardback

Edited by Mirko Canevaro, Andrew Erskine, Benjamin Gray, Josiah Ober

Part of the Edinburgh Leventis Studies series


Although the history of engagement between social science and ancient Greek history is a long one, recent developments in economics, political science and sociology have opened fresh opportunities for fruitful interdisciplinary scholarship.

The essays collected here demonstrate the potential of theories and methods drawn from the social sciences to shed new light on facets of Greek economic, political, and cultural history. And, conversely, they show that Greece may serve as an "out of sample" test for theories about institutions, organizations, associations, social thought, and social behavior that were formulated in reference to the contemporary world.
