Analogical Investigations

G. E. R. Lloyd is Emeritus Professor of Ancient Philosophy and Science at the University of Cambridge, former Master of Darwin College, Cambridge, and Senior Scholar in Residence at the Needham Research Institute, Cambridge. He is the author of twenty-two books and editor of four, and was knighted for ‘services to the history of thought’ in 1997.

Catullus

Lloyd

Western philosophy and science are responsible for constructing some powerful tools of investigation, aiming at discovering the truth, delivering robust explanations, verifying conjectures, showing that inferences are sound and demonstrating results conclusively. By contrast, reasoning that depends on analogies has often been viewed with suspicion. Professor Lloyd first explores the origins of those Western ideals, criticises some of their excesses and redresses the balance in favour of looser, admittedly non-demonstrative analogical reasoning. For this, he takes examples both from ancient Greek and Chinese thought and from the materials of recent ethnography to show how different ancient and modern cultures have developed different styles of reasoning. He also develops two original but controversial ideas, that of semantic stretch (to cast doubt on the literal/ metaphorical dichotomy) and the multidimensionality of reality (to bypass the realism versus relativism and nature versus nurture controversies).

The Poems of

Catullus

9781107682139 : Catullus : Paperback : c M y k

“The bawdy poet Catullus wrote in the late roman republic, in latin, but he will always belong to the world at large and to the present tense – rowdy, randy, excoriating, funny, acrobatic and endlessly vernacular. he is our shameless poet of the locker-room boast and the licentious man-about-town. he sings in the gossipy, fierce voices of eros and id without apology, and we love him for this particular exhibition of the glory of the human spirit. Catullus is so much of the present tense that his poetry requires the fresh transfusion of re-translation on a regular basis, needs a booster shot of the vernacular to restore the rose to his cheeks. in these fine new translations, Jeffrey Thomson and Jeannine Uzzi perfectly catch the lively Catullan blend of eloquence and vulgarity. Thus, Catullus, and his poems, get to party one more time.” Tony Hoagland, author of What Narcissim Means To Me

The Poems of

“here are all the surviving poems of Catullus – ripostes, myths, laments, love songs, sex songs, curses – in a new, exhilarating translation. ‘The shackles are off,’ and the challenge, as Catullus himself commands, to ‘say it as you mean it!’ has been admirably met: these poems are not only beautifully attuned to the meaning and contexts of the originals, they render the panache of Catullus’ incisive pronouncements in an equally dazzling language of the twenty-first century. Thomson and Uzzi have achieved something to which all translators aspire: to allow the work to speak not only through the ages, but to our own age in particular, to let it live in two worlds simultaneously.” Sinead Morrissey, author of Parallax

U z z i An d Thomson

“Uzzi and Thomson’s American english voice erupts from Catullus’ latin and speaks directly to us, as Catullus did to his contemporaries. A literary translation (as opposed to a literal trot) of poetry of any age should be able to take its place in the contemporary poetic scene. This is what Uzzi and Thomson’s translation is poised to do.” Stanley Lombardo, Professor of Classics, Kansas University

materials previously available: a work that addresses adults who want to understand what they learn, is interesting, and starts at the beginning, assuming no background except a passive knowledge of Greek.

Loren J. Samons II Author of Pericles and the Conquest of History After almost 30 years of study I’ve come to believe that treating Pericles primarily as a representative of values like freedom and equality distorts the historical record. This book attempts to show that the less-than-flattering image of Pericles that was prominent in antiquity deserves serious attention. Thucydides’ final, positive view of Athens’ greatest leader represented a significant change in the historian’s perspective. Our best evidence shows that Pericles sought to ensure Athens’ position in history by exercising power over other Greeks.

An Anthology of Informal Latin, 200 BC–AD 900 Fifty Texts with Translations and Linguistic Commentary Edited by J. N. Adams All Souls College, Oxford

This book contains over fifty passages of Latin from 200 BC to AD 900, each with translation and linguistic commentary. It is not intended as an elementary reader (though suitable for university courses), but as an illustrative history of Latin covering more than a millennium, with almost every century represented. Conventional histories cite constructions out of context, whereas this work gives a sense of the period, genre, stylistic aims and idiosyncrasies of specific passages. ‘Informal’ texts, particularly if they portray talk, reflect linguistic variety and change better than texts adhering to classicising norms. Some of the texts are of recent discovery or little known. Writing tablets are well represented, as are literary and technical texts down to the early medieval period, when striking changes show up. The commentaries identify innovations, discontinuities and phenomena of long duration. Anyone

reading the work will learn much about the diversity and development of Latin. 2016 228 x 152 mm 750pp 3 b/w illus.   978-1-107-03977-3 Hardback c. £120.00 / c. US$200.00 Publication December 2016 For all formats available, see

This work is aimed at university students and others who have a passive knowledge of ancient Greek and would like an active command of the language. It provides a structured review of grammar and syntax together with clear explanations, examples, and large numbers of exercises both with and without key. Advance praise: ‘Eleanor Dickey’s book is nothing short of a complete, stand-alone Greek prose composition course, one that touches on the sorts of skills and practice found in recent studies to be essential to language acquisition: alternating composition with reading and analysis of sentences in the target language, constant self-testing, engaging students’ recall, interleaving various types of exercises, regularly revisiting common structures, and recontextualizing important skills. There is simply no other Greek prose composition book like it.’ Ryan C. Fowler, Franklin and Marshall College, Pennsylvania

The Colloquia of the Hermeneumata Pseudodositheana Edited by Eleanor Dickey University of Reading

The Colloquia are manuals written to help ancient Greeks and Romans get around in each other’s languages; they contain examples of how to conduct activities like shopping, banking, visiting friends, hosting parties, taking oaths, winning lawsuits, using the public baths, having fights, making excuses and going to school. They thus offer a unique glimpse of daily life in the early Roman Empire and are an important resource for understanding ancient culture. They have, however, been unjustly neglected because until now there were no modern editions of the texts, no translations into any modern language, and little understanding of what the Colloquia are and where they come from. This two-volume set makes the Colloquia accessible for the first time by combining a new edition, translation and commentary with a groundbreaking, comprehensive study of their origins. It is clearly written and will interest students, non-specialists and professional scholars alike. Cambridge Classical Texts and Commentaries

to consider his work from a fresh perspective. ‘The bawdy poet Catullus wrote in the late Roman Republic, in Latin, but he will always belong to the world at large and to the present tense – rowdy, randy, excoriating, funny, acrobatic and endlessly vernacular. He is our shameless poet of the lockerroom boast and the licentious manabout-town. He sings in the gossipy, fierce voices of Eros and Id without apology, and we love him for this particular exhibition of the glory of the human spirit. Catullus is so much of the present tense that his poetry requires the fresh transfusion of retranslation on a regular basis, needs a booster shot of the vernacular to restore the rose to his cheeks. In these fine new translations, Jeffrey Thomson and Jeannine Uzzi perfectly catch the lively Catullan blend of eloquence and vulgarity. Thus, Catullus, and his poems, get to party one more time.’ Tony Hoagland, poet and writer

Stesichorus in Context Edited by P. J. Finglass

Columbia University, New York

University of Nottingham

and Christos Tsagalis

and Adrian Kelly

University of Thessaloniki, Greece

University of Oxford

The poems of the Epic Cycle are assumed to be the reworking of myths and narratives which had their roots in an oral tradition predating that of many of the myths and narratives which took their present form in the Iliad and the Odyssey. The remains of these texts allow us to investigate diachronic aspects of epic diction as well as the extent of variation within it on the part of individual authors – two of the most important questions in modern research on archaic epic. They also help to illuminate the early history of Greek mythology. Access to the poems, however, has been thwarted by their current fragmentary state. This volume provides the scholarly community and graduate students with a thorough critical foundation for reading and interpreting them.

This book presents ten new essays on aspects of the Greek poet Stesichorus, whose works have only recently been rediscovered. It will appeal to everybody interested in Greek poetry and its influence, and in the recovery of longlost texts.

A lively and comprehensive overview of Roman slavery, ideal for introductorylevel students of the ancient Mediterranean world. Using a variety of sources, including literature, law, and material culture, Joshel and Petersen examine all aspects of Roman slavery including legal condition, sale, family and social lives, and relations between slaves and slaveholders. ‘The object of this fascinating book is to render visible Roman slaves in the remains of the Campanian cities and villas destroyed in 79 AD by the eruption of Mt Vesuvius … The possibilities raised are of great importance, and in its legitimate concern to evoke the day-to-day realities of life in slavery [this] book is to be warmly applauded … The challenge of recovering a history of slavery from archaeological evidence has been laid down, and it is in this that the book’s special value lies.’ Classical World

‘Bardill’s monograph is a major contribution to Constantine studies. His overarching argument, that the emperor’s monuments offered an open-ended set of associations that may have resonated differently for different viewers, but which cohered into a consistent vision of divinely sanctioned solar monotheism, is a welcome response to more one-dimensional interpretations of the reign.

The Pantheon From Antiquity to the Present Edited by Tod A. Marder and Mark Wilson Jones

This book treats the Pantheon from the unique perspective of its construction, survival and reception through history. Each chapter is an investigation of a particular architectural aspect of the building or a historical period during its survival to explain how the Pantheon has been understood over the centuries, why it looks as it does today and why it has endured as an architectural model. ‘The contributors provide a valuable synthesis of recent research on the Pantheon, the paradigm of Roman architectural and engineering prowess. They also identify new and productive directions for subsequent research on the ancient edifice and on its extended legacy.’ John Pinto, Princeton University, New Jersey 2015 253 x 177 mm 503pp 174 b/w illus.  18 colour illus.   978-0-521-80932-0 Hardback £65.00 / US$99.00 For all formats available, see

Architecture of the Sacred Space, Ritual, and Experience from Classical Greece to Byzantium Edited by Bonna D. Wescoat Emory University, Atlanta

and Robert G. Ousterhout University of Pennsylvania

This book explores the way space, place, architecture, memory and ritual interact to construct sacred experience in ancient Greek, Roman, Jewish, early Christian and Byzantine cultures. The book demonstrates that architecture and its setting actively participated in the ritual process. Architecture did not merely host events; rather, it magnified and elevated them. ‘… this is an outstanding collection of essays, or ‘micro-histories’, as the editors note, providing both breadth and specificity in its examination of the complex problem of architecture, space, and ritual.’ Jessica Paga, Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians 2015 253 x 177 mm 407pp 151 b/w illus.   978-1-107-42900-0 Paperback £23.99 / US$34.99 For all formats available, see

The Art and Archaeology of Ancient Greece Judith M. Barringer University of Edinburgh

This richly illustrated, four-colour textbook introduces the art and archaeology of ancient Greece, from the Bronze Age through the Roman conquest. Emphasizing context and function, Barringer explores the purpose and use of buildings and objects within their particular time and place, leading students to a rich sociohistorical understanding of Greek art. ‘This book is a superb resource for students and teachers of ancient Greek art specifically and the ancient Greek world as a whole. Barringer strikes an ideal balance between brevity and depth, leaving just enough room between the sentences for dialogue, discussion, and discourse. No mere survey, this important new text goes out of its way to problematize traditional narratives and point to the hidden riches and complexities of the field.’ Peter Schultz, Concordia College, Moorhead, Minnesota

The Roman Forum was in many ways the heart of the Roman Empire. Today, the Forum exists in a fragmentary state, having been destroyed and plundered by barbarians, aristocrats, citizens and priests over the past two millennia. Enough remains, however, for archaeologists to reconstruct its spectacular buildings and monuments. This richly illustrated volume provides an architectural history of the central section of the Roman Forum during the Empire (31 BCE–476 CE), from the Temple of Julius Caesar to the monuments on the slope of the Capitoline hill. Bringing together stateof-the-art technology in architectural illustration and the expertise of a prominent Roman archaeologist, this book offers a unique reconstruction of the Forum, providing architectural history, a summary of each building’s excavation and research, scaled digital plans, elevations, and reconstructed aerial images that not only shed light on the Forum’s history but vividly bring it to life. With this book, scholars, students, architects and artists will be able to visualize for the first time since antiquity

Ancient history Magic and Divinity in Graeco-Roman Egypt A Study of the Greek Magical Hymns Ljuba Merlina Bortolani Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, Germany

This interdisciplinary study investigates the divine personas in the so-called magical hymns of the Greek magical papyri which, in a corpus usually seen as a significant expression of religious syncretism with strong Egyptian influence, were long considered to be the ‘most authentically Greek’ contribution. Fifteen hymns receive a line-by-line commentary focusing on religious concepts, ritual practice, language and style. The overarching aim is to categorize the nature of divinity according to its Greek or Egyptian elements, examining earlier Greek and Egyptian sources and religious-magical traditions in order to find textual or conceptual parallels. Are the gods of the magical hymns Greek or Egyptian in nature? Did the magical hymns originate in a Greek or Egyptian cultural background? The book tries to answer these questions and to shed light on the religious plurality and/or fusion of the two cultures in the treatment of divinity in the Greek magical papyri. 2016 228 x 152 mm 348pp 978-1-107-10838-7 Hardback c. £74.99 / c. US$120.00 Publication December 2016 For all formats available, see

Benefaction and Rewards in the Ancient Greek City

The Codex of Justinian

Nicolaus of Damascus, the chief minister of Herod the Great, was an exact contemporary of the first Roman emperor Augustus; he spent considerable time in Roman society and knew Augustus. The extensive remains of his Bios Kaisaros contain the earliest and most detailed account of the conspiracy against Julius Caesar and his assassination. The Bios also presents the most extensive account of the boyhood and early development of Augustus. This edition presents the Greek text and translation of the Bios and Nicolaus’ autobiography, along with a historical and historiographical commentary. The Introduction situates the text in relation to the considerable evidence for the life and career of Nicolaus preserved in the works of Josephus, addresses the problem of its date of composition, analyses the language and narrative technique of Nicolaus and discusses the Bios in relation to the evidence for Greek biographical encomium.

Superstition or Individuality? Jörg Rüpke

The Codex of Justinian is, together with the Digest, the core of the great Byzantine compilation of Roman law called the Corpus Iuris Civilis. The Codex compiles legal proclamations issued by Roman emperors from the second to the sixth centuries CE. Its influence on subsequent legal development in the medieval and early modern world has been almost incalculable. But the Codex has not, until now, been credibly translated into English. This translation, with a facing Latin and Greek text (from Paul Krüger’s ninth edition of the Codex), is based on one made by Justice Fred Blume in the 1920s, but left unpublished for almost a century. It is accompanied by introductions explaining the background of the translation, a bibliography and glossary, and notes that help in understanding the text. Anyone with an interest in the Codex, whether an interested novice or a professional historian, will find ample assistance here. Contributors: Timothy Kearley, Bruce W.

A History of the Jewish War AD 66–74 Steve Mason Rijksuniversiteit Groningen, The Netherlands

A conflict that erupted between Roman legions and some Judaeans in late AD 66 had an incalculable impact on Rome’s physical appearance and imperial governance; on ancient Jews bereft of their mother-city and temple; and on early Christian fortunes. Historical scholarship and cinema alike tend to see the conflict as the culmination of long Jewish resistance to Roman oppression. In this volume, Steven Mason re-examines the war in all relevant contexts (such as the Parthian dimension, and Judaea’s place in Roman Syria) and phases, from the Hasmoneans to the fall of Masada. Mason approaches each topic as a historical investigation, clarifying problems that need to be solved, understanding the available evidence, and considering scenarios that might explain the evidence. The simplest reconstructions make the conflict more humanly intelligible while casting doubt on received knowledge. Advance praise: ‘No study of the Jewish-Roman war approaches this one in level of

Pericles and the Conquest of History A Political Biography Loren J. Samons, II Boston University

Under the leadership of Pericles in the fifth century BC, the Athenians sought to become the preeminent power in Greece. How did Pericles become both the greatest and the most dangerous leader Athens ever produced? Loren J. Samons, II uses the events of Athenian history of the period to analyze the career and legacy of this pivotal historical figure. ‘To his credit, Professor Samons resolutely refuses to view Pericles with rose-colored glasses. Instead, he shatters the illusions entertained by his predecessors, emphasizing the degree to which the radical democracy in Athens fostered and was fostered by a brutal, ruthless, exploitative imperialism and exhibited a suicidal ambition for further expansion that, thanks in part to the vision of undying glory and grandeur deliberately projected by Pericles, knew no bounds.’ Paul A.

Shenoute the Great (c.347–465) led one of the largest Christian monastic communities in late antique Egypt and was the greatest native writer of Coptic in history. For approximately eight decades, Shenoute led a federation of three monasteries and emerged as a Christian leader. His public sermons attracted crowds of clergy, monks, and lay people; he advised military and government officials; he worked to ensure that his followers would be faithful to orthodox Christian teaching; and he vigorously and violently opposed paganism and the oppressive treatment of the poor by the rich.

The Cambridge History of Philosophy in Late Antiquity Edited by Lloyd P. Gerson University of Toronto

The Cambridge History of Philosophy in Late Antiquity comprises over forty specially commissioned essays by experts on the philosophy of the period 200–800 CE. Designed as a successor to The Cambridge History of Later Greek and Early Medieval Philosophy (ed. A. H. Armstrong), it takes into account some forty years of scholarship since the publication of that volume. The contributors examine philosophy as it entered literature, science and religion, and offer new and extensive assessments of philosophers who until recently have been mostly ignored. The volume also includes a complete digest of all philosophical works known to have been written during this period. It will be an invaluable resource for all those interested in this rich and still emerging field.

Ancient philosophy Socrates and Self-Knowledge Christopher Moore Pennsylvania State University

This book, the first systematic study of Socrates’s interest in self-knowledge, offers new interpretations of both familiar and overlooked texts on selfknowledge in ancient philosophy and will interest researchers and upper-level students of ancient philosophy, Plato, Socrates, and selfhood. ‘Christopher Moore presents a new and insightful perspective on [an] old philosophical theme. He invites his readers to rethink the Socratic concept of self-knowledge and the Delphic oracle to know thyself. The upshot of his analysis is an original and important interpretation of the ancient philosophical and literary sources on these topics, especially the Platonic dialogues.’ Paul Schollmeier, University of Nevada, Las Vegas 2015 228 x 152 mm 294pp 978-1-107-12330-4 Hardback £64.99 / US$99.99 For all formats available, see

Porphyry’s Commentary on Ptolemy’s Harmonics A Greek Text and Annotated Translation Edited and translated by Andrew Barker University of Birmingham

Porphyry’s Commentary, the only surviving ancient commentary on a technical text, is not merely a study of Ptolemy’s Harmonics. It includes virtually free-standing philosophical essays on epistemology, metaphysics, scientific methodology, aspects of the Aristotelian categories and the relations between Aristotle’s views and Plato’s, and a host of briefer comments on other matters of wide philosophical interest. For musicologists it is widely recognised as a treasury of quotations from earlier treatises, many of them otherwise unknown; but Porphyry’s own reflections on musical concepts (for instance notes, intervals and their relation to ratios, quantitative and qualitative conceptions of pitch, the continuous and discontinuous forms of vocal movement, and so on) and his snapshots of contemporary music-making have been undeservedly neglected. This volume presents the first English translation and a revised Greek text of the Commentary, with an Introduction and notes designed to assist readers in engaging with this important and intricate work. 2015 228 x 152 mm 587pp 30 b/w illus.   978-1-107-00385-9 Hardback £100.00 / US$160.00 For all formats available, see
