About this product
- DescriptionThe Greeks have long been regarded as invators across a wide range of fields in literature, culture, philosophy, politics and science. However, little attention has been paid to how they thought and felt about velty and invation itself, and to relating this to the forces of traditionalism and conservatism which were also present across all the various societies within ancient Greece. What inspired the Greeks to embark on their unique and enduring invations? How did they think and feel about the new? This book represents the first serious attempt to address these issues, and deals with the phemen across all periods and areas of classical Greek history and thought. Each chapter concentrates on a different area of culture or thought, while the book as a whole argues that much of the impulse towards invation came from the life of the polis which provided its setting.
