(H/B) MARULLUS: POEMS
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0829

Michael Marullus (c. 1453/4-1500), born in Greece, began life as a mercenary soldier but became a prominent Neo-Latin poet and scholar who worked in Florence and Naples. He married the beautiful and learned Alessandra Scala, daughter of the humanist Bartolomeo Scala, chancellor of Florence, and his Epigrams bring alive the circle of Lorenzo di Pierfrancesco de Medici. Among Marullus's influences were ancient Greek texts such as the Homeric and Orphic hymns, the Corpus Hermeticum, the hymns of Proclus, Cleanthes, and Callimachus, and Julian...

(P/B) COMPARATIVE ANTHROPOLOGY OF ANCIENT GREECE
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0622

"Comparative Anthropology of Ancient Greece" looks at the anthropology of the Greeks and other cultures across space and time, and in the process discovers aspects of the art of comparability. Historians and ethnologists can pool a wealth of knowledge about different cultures across space and time. Their joint task is to analyze human societies and to understand cultural products. Comparative analysis involves working together in an experimental and constructive enterprise. Marcel Detienne, alerted by dissonances, tries to see how cultural...

(H/B) POEMS OF CHRISTOPHER OF MYTILENE AND JOHN MAUROPOUS
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0892

The witty and self-assertive poetry of Christopher of Mytilene and John Mauropous provides unique snapshots of eleventh-century Constantinople at the height of its splendor and elegance. Their collections, aptly called "various verses," greatly range in length and style - including epigrams, polemics, encomia, and more - and their poems were written for a broad range of social occasions such as court ceremonies, horse races, contests between schools, and funerals. Some were inscribed on icons and buildings. Many honored patrons and friends...

(H/B) CICERO (VOLUME XIV)
PRO MILONE. IN PISONEM. PRO SCAURO. PRO FONTEIO. PRO RABIRIO POSTUMO. PRO MARCELLO. PRO LIGARIO. PRO REGE DEIOTARO
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0123

Cicero (Marcus Tullius, 106-43 BCE), Roman lawyer, orator, politician and philosopher, of whom we know more than of any other Roman, lived through the stirring era which saw the rise, dictatorship, and death of Julius Caesar in a tottering republic. In his political speeches especially and in his correspondence we see the excitement, tension and intrigue of politics and the part he played in the turmoil of the time. Of about 106 speeches, delivered before the Roman people or the Senate if they were political, before jurors if judicial, 58 ...

(P/B) THE POEMS OF EMILY DICKINSON
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0072

Emily Dickinson, poet of the interior life, imagined words/swords, hurling barbed syllables/piercing. Nothing about her adult appearance or habitation revealed such a militant soul. Only poems, written quietly in a room of her own, often hand-stitched in small volumes, then hidden in a drawer, revealed her true self. She did not live in time but in universals--an acute, sensitive nature reaching out boldly from self-referral to a wider, imagined world. Dickinson died without fame; only a few poems were published in her lifetime. Her legac...

(H/B) MAXIMOS THE CONFESSOR: ON DIFFICULTIES IN THE CHURCH FATHERS
THE AMBIGUA (VOLUME II)
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0884

Maximos the Confessor (580-662) occupies a unique position in the history of Byzantine philosophy, theology, and spirituality. His profound spiritual experiences and penetrating theological vision found complex and often astonishing expression in his unparalleled command of Greek philosophy, making him one of the most challenging and original Christian thinkers of all time. So thoroughly did his thought come to influence the Byzantine theological tradition that it is impossible to trace the subsequent history of Orthodox Christianity witho...

(H/B) MARCUS AURELIUS
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0457

Marcus Aurelius (121-180 CE), Roman emperor and Stoic philosopher, born at Rome, received training under his guardian and uncle emperor Antoninus Pius (reigned 138-161), who adopted him. He was converted to Stoicism and henceforward studied and practised philosophy and law. A gentle man, he lived in agreement and collaboration with Antoninus Pius. He married Pius’s daughter and succeeded him as emperor in March 161, sharing some of the burdens with Lucius Verus. Marcus’s reign soon saw fearful national disasters from flood, earthquakes, ep...

(H/B) THE POEMS OF EMILY DICKINSON
VARIORUM EDITION
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0064

Emily Dickinson, poet of the interior life, imagined words/swords, hurling barbed syllables/piercing. Nothing about her adult appearance or habitation revealed such a militant soul. Only poems, written quietly in a room of her own, often hand-stitched in small volumes, then hidden in a desk drawer, revealed her true self. She did not live in time, as did that other great poet of the day, Walt Whitman, but in universals. As she knowingly put it: "There is one thing to be grateful for--that one is one's self and not somebody else." Dickinson...

(H/B) CAESAR (VOLUME I)
GALLIC WAR
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0163

In this volume are three works concerning the campaigns engaged in by the great Roman statesman Julius Caesar (100-44 BCE), but not written by him. The Alexandrian War, which deals with troubles elsewhere also, may have been written by Aulus Hirtius (ca. 90-43 BC, friend and military subordinate of Caesar), who is generally regarded as the author of the last book of Caesar’s Gallic War. The African War and The Spanish War are detailed accounts clearly by officers who had shared in the campaigns. All three works are important sources of our...

(H/B) LIVY (VOLUME III)
HISTORY OF ROME (BOOKS 5-7)
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0188

Livy (Titus Livius), the great Roman historian, was born at or near Patavium (Padua) in 64 or 59 BCE; he may have lived mostly in Rome but died at Patavium, in 12 or 17 CE. Livy's only extant work is part of his history of Rome from the foundation of the city to 9 BCE. Of its 142 books, we have just 35, and short summaries of all the rest except two. The whole work was, long after his death, divided into Decades or series of ten. Books 1-10 we have entire; books 11-20 are lost; books 21-45 are entire, except parts of 41 and 43-45. Of the r...

(P/B) THE MIND OF A MNEMONIST
A LITTLE BOOK ABOUT VAST MEMORY
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0877

The Mind of a Mnemonist is a rare phenomenon - a scientific study that transcends its data and, in the manner of the best fictional literature, fashions a portrait of an unforgettable human being. (From the publisher) "A distinguished Soviet psychologist's study... [of a] young man who was discovered to have a literally limitless memory and eventually became a professional mnemonist. Experiments and interviews over the years showed that his memory was based on synesthesia (turning sounds into vivid visual imagery), that he could forget an...

(P/B) EMPIRE
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0787

Imperialism as we knew it may be no more, but Empire is alive and well. It is, as Michael Hardt and Antonio Negri demonstrate in this bold work, the new political order of globalization. It is easy to recognize the contemporary economic, cultural, and legal transformations taking place across the globe but difficult to understand them. Hardt and Negri contend that they should be seen in line with our historical understanding of Empire as a universal order that accepts no boundaries or limits. Their book shows how this emerging Empire is fu...

(H/B) GLOBALISTS
THE END OF EMPIRE AND THE BIRTH OF NEOLIBERALISM
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0895

Neoliberals hate the state. Or do they? In the first intellectual history of neoliberal globalism, Quinn Slobodian follows a group of thinkers from the ashes of the Habsburg Empire to the creation of the World Trade Organization to show that neoliberalism emerged less to shrink government and abolish regulations than to redeploy them at a global level. Slobodian begins in Austria in the 1920s. Empires were dissolving and nationalism, socialism, and democratic self-determination threatened the stability of the global capitalist system. In r...

(H/B) RECONSTRUCTING DEMOCRACY
HOW CITIZENS ARE BUILDING FROM THE GROUND UP
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0925

Across the world, democracies are suffering from a disconnect between the people and political elites. In communities where jobs and industry are scarce, many feel the government is incapable of understanding their needs or addressing their problems. The resulting frustration has fueled the success of destabilizing demagogues. To reverse this pattern and restore responsible government, we need to reinvigorate democracy at the local level. But what does that mean? Drawing on examples of successful community building in cities large and smal...

(P/B) GREEK RELIGION
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0280

In this book Walter Burkert, the most eminent living historian of ancient Greek religion, has produced the standard work for our time on that subject. First published in German in 1977, it has now been translated into English with the assistance of the author himself. A clearly structured and readable survey for students and scholars, it will be welcomed as the best modern account of any polytheistic religious system. Burkert draws on archaeological discoveries, insights from other disciplines, and inscriptions in Linear B to reconstruct t...

Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0498

Plato of Athens, who laid the foundations of the Western philosophical tradition and in range and depth ranks among its greatest practitioners, was born to a prosperous and politically active family circa 427 BC. In early life an admirer of Socrates, Plato later founded the first institution of higher learning in the West, the Academy, among whose many notable alumni was Aristotle. Traditionally ascribed to Plato are thirty-five dialogues developing Socrates' dialectic method and composed with great stylistic virtuosity, together with the ...

(H/B) EPICTETUS (VOLUME I)
DISCOURSES (BOOKS 1-2)
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0381

Epictetus was a crippled Greek slave of Phrygia during Nero’s reign (54-68 CE) who heard lectures by the Stoic Musonius before he was freed. Expelled with other philosophers by the emperor Domitian in 89 or 92 he settled permanently in Nicopolis in Epirus. There, in a school which he called ’healing place for sick souls’, he taught a practical philosophy, details of which were recorded by Arrian, a student of his, and survive in four books of Discourses and a smaller Encheiridion, a handbook which gives briefly the chief doctrines of the D...
