Aristotle Transformed: The Ancient Commentators and Their Influence

Aristotle Transformed: The Ancient Commentators and Their Influence (Ancient Commentators on Aristotle) by Richard Sorabji
Cornell Univ Pr; First edition | March 1990 | English | ISBN: 0801424321 | 545 pages | DJVU | 5 MB

All of these articles are good, indeed, most are outstanding. Of course, the first essay by Sorabji gets the ball rolling and must not be missed. Much, if not all, of the period covered here can perhaps best be characterized as the attempt to harmonize the works of Plato and Aristotle. Of this Harmonization Sorabji justly, in my opinion, remarks that, quot;[n]ot for the only time in the history of philosophy (the condemnation of the 219 propositions in 1277 pres another example), a perfectly crazy position (harmony) proves philosophically fruitful. To establish the harmony of Plato and Aristotle, philosophers had to think up new ideas, and the result was an amalgam different from either of the two original philosophies.quot;

Ancient Historiography and its Contexts: Studies in Honour of A. J. Woodman by Christina S. Kraus
Oxford University Press | July 15, 2010 | English | ISBN: 019955868X | 420 pages | PDF | 3 MB

This is a collection of studies on ancient (especially Latin) poetry and historiography, concentrating especially on the impact of rhetoric on both genres, and on the importance of considering the literature to illuminate the historical Roman context and the historical context to illuminate the literature. It takes the form of a tribute to Tony Woodman, Gildersleeve Professor of Latin at the University of Virginia, for whom twenty-one scholars have contributed essays reflecting the interests and approaches that have typified Woodman's own work. The authors that he has continuously illuminated - especially Velleius, Horace, Virgil, Sallust, and Tacitus - figure particularly prominently.

Children can try their hand at re-creating ancient Israelite culture-along with the cultures of their neighbors, the Philistines and Phoenicians-in a way that will provide perspective on current events. The book covers a key period from the Israelites' settlement in Canaan in 1200 B.C.E. to their return from exile in Babylonia in 538 B.C.E. This part of the Middle East-no larger than modern-day Michigan-was the birthplace of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. More than 35 projects include stomping grapes into juice, building a model Phoenician trading ship, making a Philistine headdress, and writing on a broken clay pot. Israelites', Phoenicians', and Philistines' writing and languages, the way they built their homes, the food they ate, the clothes they wore, and the work they did, and of course, their many interesting stories, are all explored.
