              This book examines the origins of ancient Greek Science using the vehicles of blood, blood vessels, and the heart. Careful attention to biomedical writers in the ancient world as well as to philosophical and literary work of writers prior to the Hippocratic authors produce an int...eresting story of how science progressed and the critical context in which important methodological questions were addressed. The end result is an account that arises from debates that are engaged and solved by different writers. These stopping points form the foundation for Harvey and for modern philosophy of biology. Author Michael Boylan sets out the history of science as well as a critical evaluation based upon principles in the contemporary cannon of philosophy of science particularly those dealing with philosophy of biology.

              TransAntiquity explores transgender practices, in particular cross-dressing, and their literary and figurative representations in antiquity. It offers a comprehensive study of cross-dressing, both of the social practice and its conceptualization, and of its interaction with norma...tive prescriptions on gender and sexuality in the ancient Mediterranean world. Special attention is paid to the reactions of the societies of the time, the impact transgender practices had on individuals' symbolic and social capital, as well as the reactions of institutionalized power and the juridical systems. The variety of subjects and approaches demonstrate just how complex and widespread transgender dynamics were in antiquity.

              Consumerism in the Ancient World: Imports and Identity Construction
               

              Consumerism in the Ancient World: Imports and Identity Construction (Hardback)

              Study of long-distance trade in Greek pottery traces its intellectual roots back to twentieth-century investigations of Greek colonization. Scholarship until 1980 tended to treat colonial interactions as a straightforward and one-way transmission of Greek culture to indigenous gr...oups. In this model, called Hellenization, indigenous groups adopted Greek goods and sought to emulate the colonizers behaviours. No indigenous group immediately abandoned all of their previous traditions to adopt Greek behaviours and culture completely, however, and archaeologists began to realize that indigenous groups had adopted only those Greek goods that were useful to their purposes. This book has three primary aims: to identify evidence for expressions of preference by consumers in the material culture of the ancient world; to show communicative links between consumers and producers; and to demonstrate how the consumption of imported goods was (and is) reflexively linked to the construction of individual and group identities. It creates a new and holistic model that explains the mechanisms associated with economic exchange and cultural meaning in the classical world. This study is the first to combine archaeological theory concerning the consumption of imported goods, economic understandings of purchase and exchange, and sociological approaches to the construction of individual and group identities.

              Lucian and His Roman Voices: Cultural Exchanges and Conflicts in the Late Roman Empire (Hardback)

              Lucian and His Roman Voices examines cultural exchanges, political propaganda, and religious conflicts in the Early Roman Empire through the eyes of Lucian, his contemporary Roman authors, and Christian Apologists. Offering a multi-faceted analysis of the Lucianic corpus, this bo...ok explores how Lucian, a Syrian who wrote in Greek and who became a Roman citizen, was affected by the socio-political climate of his time, reacted to it, and how he 'corresponded' with the Roman intelligentsia. In the process, this unique volume raises questions such as: What did the title 'Roman citizen' mean to native Romans and to others? How were language and literature politicized, and how did they become a means of social propaganda? This study reveals Lucian's recondite historical and authorial personas, construing his literary activity as a means of depicting the vignettes of second-century reality from the viewpoint of the Romans, the Greeks, the pagans, the Christians, and citizens of the Roman Empire.
