(H/B) PLATO: REPUBLIC (VOLUME II, BOOKS 6-10)
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0503

Plato, the great philosopher of Athens, was born in 427 BCE. In early manhood an admirer of Socrates, he later founded the famous school of philosophy in the grove Academus. Much else recorded of his life is uncertain; that he left Athens for a time after Socrates' execution is probable; that later he went to Cyrene, Egypt, and Sicily is possible; that he was wealthy is likely; that he was critical of 'advanced' democracy is obvious. He lived to be 80 years old. Linguistic tests including those of computer science still try to establish th...

(H/B) PAUSANIAS: DESCRIPTION OF GREECE (VOLUME I)
BOOKS 1-2 ATTICA AND CORINTH
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0474

Pausanias, born probably in Lydia in Asia Minor, was a Greek of the 2nd century CE, about 120-180, who travelled widely not only in Asia Minor, Palestine, Egypt and North Africa, but also in Greece and in Italy, including Rome. He left a description of Greece in ten books, which is like a topographical guidebook or tour of Attica, the Peloponnese, and central Greece, filled out with historical accounts and events and digressions on facts and wonders of nature. His chief interest was the monuments of art and architecture, especially the mos...

(H/B) ATHENAEUS (VOLUME I)
THE LEARNED BANQUETERS (BOOKS 1-3.106e)
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0331

In The Learned Banqueters, Athenaeus describes a series of dinner parties at which the guests quote extensively from Greek literature. The work (which dates to the very end of the second century CE) is amusing reading and of extraordinary value as a treasury of quotations from works now lost. Athenaeus also preserves a wide range of information about different cuisines and foodstuffs; the music and entertainments that ornamented banquets; and the intellectual talk that was the heart of Greek conviviality. S. Douglas Olson has undertaken to...

(H/B) BOETHIUS: THEOLOGICAL TRACTATES, THE CONSOLATION OF PHILOSOPHY
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0342

Boethius (Boetius) - Anicius Manlius Severinus - Roman statesman and philosopher (ca. 480-524 CE), was son of Flavius Manlius Boetius, after whose death he was looked after by several men, especially Memmius Symmachus. He married Symmachus’s daughter, Rusticiana, by whom he had two sons. All three men rose to high honours under Theodoric the Ostrogoth, but Boethius fell from favour, was tried for treason, wrongly condemned, and imprisoned at Ticinum (Pavia), where he wrote his renowned The Consolation of Philosophy. He was put to death in ...

(H/B) CAPITALISM, ALONE
THE FUTURE OF THE SYSTEM THAT RULES THE WORLD
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0914

A provocative account of capitalism's rise to global dominance and, as different models of capitalism vie for world leadership, a look into what the future may hold. We are all capitalists now. For the first time in human history, the globe is dominated by one economic system. In Capitalism, Alone, leading economist Branko Milanovic explains the reasons for this decisive historical shift since the days of feudalism and, later, communism. Surveying the varieties of capitalism, he asks: What are the prospects for a fairer world now that capi...

(P/B) NIETZSCHE
LIFE AS LITERATURE
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0915

More than eighty years after his death, Nietzsche's writings and his career remain disquieting, disturbing, obscure. His most famous views-the will to power, the eternal recurrence, the UEbermensch, the master morality-often seem incomprehensible or, worse, repugnant. Yet he remains a thinker of singular importance, a great opponent of Hegel and Kant, and the source of much that is powerful in figures as diverse as Wittgenstein, Derrida, Heidegger, and many recent American philosophers. Alexander Nehamas provides the best possible guide fo...

There is new material on the later development of Frank Lloyd Wright and the more recent buildings of Walter Gropius, particularly his American Embassy in Athens. In his discussi...

(H/B) PLATONIC THEOLOGY (VOLUME 1)
BOOKS I-IV
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0616

The Platonic Theology is a visionary work and the philosophical masterpiece of Marsilio Ficino (1433-1499), the Florentine scholar-philosopher-magus who was largely responsible for the Renaissance revival of Plato. A student of the Neoplatonic schools of Plotinus and Proclus, he was committed to reconciling Platonism with Christianity, in the hope that such a reconciliation would initiate a spiritual revival and return of the golden age. His Platonic evangelizing was eminently successful and widely influential, and his Platonic Theology, t...

(H/B) LIVY (VOLUME VII)
HISTORY OF ROME (BOOKS 26-27)
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0192

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...

Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0468

OVID (Publius Ovidius Naso, 43 BC - AD 17), born at Sulmo studied rhetoric and law at Rome. Later he did considerable public service there, and otherwise devoted himself to poetry and to society. Famous at first, he offended the emperor Augustus by his Ars Armatoria, and was banished because of this work and some other reason unknown to us, and dwelt in the cold and primitive town of Tomis on the Black Sea. He continued writing poetry, a kindly man, leading a temperate life. He died in exile. Ovid’s main surviving works are the Metamorphos...

Livy (Titus Livius), the great Roman historian, was born at Patavium (Padua) in 64 or 59 BC where after years in Rome he died in AD 12 or 17. Livy's history, composed as the imperial autocracy of Augustus was replacing the republican system that had stood for over 500 years, presents in splendid style a vivid narrative of Rome's rise from the traditional foundation of the city in 753 or 751 BC to 9 BC and illustrates the collective and individual virtues necessary to achieve and maintain such greatness. Of its 142 books, conventionally div...

(P/B) LECTURES ON THE HISTORY OF POLITICAL PHILOSOPHY
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0802

This last book by the late John Rawls, derived from written lectures and notes for his long-running course on modern political philosophy, offers readers an account of the liberal political tradition from a scholar viewed by many as the greatest contemporary exponent of the philosophy behind that tradition. Rawls's goal in the lectures was, he wrote, "to identify the more central features of liberalism as expressing a political conception of justice when liberalism is viewed from within the tradition of democratic constitutionalism." He do...

(P/B) IS THERE A TEXT IN THIS CLASS?
THE AUTHORITY OF INTERPRETIVE COMMUNITIES
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0805

Stanley Fish is one of America's most stimulating literary theorists. In this book, he undertakes a profound reexamination of some of criticism's most basic assumptions. He penetrates to the core of the modern debate about interpretation, explodes numerous misleading formulations, and offers a stunning proposal for a new way of thinking about the way we read. Fish begins by examining the relation between a reader and a text, arguing against the formalist belief that the text alone is the basic, knowable, neutral, and unchanging component ...

(H/B) THE RHETORICAL EXERCISES OF NIKEPHOROS BASILAKES
PROGYMNASMATA FROM TWELFTH-CENTURY BYZANTIUM
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0887

Progymnasmata, preliminary exercises in the study of declamation, were the cornerstone of elite education from Hellenistic through Byzantine times. Using material from Greek literary, mythological, and historical traditions, students and writers composed examples ranging from simple fables to complex arguments about fictional laws. In the Byzantine period, the spectrum of source material expanded to include the Bible and Christian hagiography and theology. This collection was written by Nikephoros Basilakes, imperial notary and teacher at ...

THE ROMAN TRIUMPH
Εκδότης: HARVARD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1825-0717

It followed every major military victory in ancient Rome: the successful general drove through the streets to the temple of Jupiter on the Capitoline Hill; behind him streamed his raucous soldiers; in front were his most glamorous prisoners, as well as the booty he'd captured, from enemy ships and precious statues to plants and animals from the conquered territory. Occasionally there was so much on display that the show lasted two or three days. A radical reexamination of this most extraordinary of ancient ceremonies, this book explores th...
