Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Promoting a new, broadly interdisciplinary horizon for future studies in early Greek philosophy. Dirk L. Couprie, Robert Hahn, and Gerard Naddaf establish the cultural context in which Anaximander's thought developed and in which the origins of Greek philosophy unfolded in its earliest stages. In order to better understand Anaximander's achievement, the authors call our attention to the historical, social, political, technological, cosmological, astronomical, and observational contexts of his thought. Anaximander in Context brings to the forefront of modern debates the importance of cultural context, and the indispensability of images to clarify ancient ideologies.

Book News Annotation:

Philosophy scholars Couprie, now in private practice, Robert Hahn (Southern Illinois U., Carbondale), and Gerard Haddaf (York U.) agreed that Anaximander of Miletus (610-545 BC) displayed one of the greatest minds that had ever lived, and vowed to bring this fact to the greater world. In turn, they discuss his anthropogony and politogony, proportions and numbers, and astronomy.
