Titel: Social Values in Classical Athens.
Dent/Hakkert, London/Toronto, 1976. X,176p. Paperback. Series: The Ancient World: Source Books. 'As has often been said and as Dover's 'Greek Morality in the rime of Plato and Aristotle' has recently underlined, Greek forensic oratory offers a surer guide to the attitudes and beliefs of the majority citizens than does the evidence from historians, dramatists, and philosophers. Mr. Fisher would agree and rightly adds that the evidence of the law-court speeches is much less readily and clearly available at present in English. Readily and clearly available some of it now is. For the bulk of the book comprises translations of Lysias, Isaeus, Demosthenes, Lycurgus, and some inscriptions. (?) The translation reaches a high degree of accuracy, each extract prefaced with a commentary which illuminates what is to follow and focuses the reader?s attention on what is relevant. (?) To help in assessing and interpreting these speeches Mr. Fisher gives thorough and sensible help.' (H.J.K. USHER in The Classical Review (New Series), 1978, p.364). From the library of the late Prof. W. Geoffrey Arnott. Antiquarian. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 27792

Anbieterinformationen: Scrinium Classical Antiquity, member of the Dutch Association of Antiquarian Booksellers (NVvA - ILAB), stands for a specialized stock of new, secondhand and antiquarian books about Classical Antiquity. The main theme of our books is Classical Antiquity: texts and commentaries, translations, archeology, philosophy, travel, history, mythology, books for young people, philology, law, reception of classical motives in Middle Ages, Renaissance and our own time and neo-Hellenika (conptemporary Greece), and many more subjects. A more modest quantity of our books concerns countries, civilisations and religious movements on the edges of the classical world: e.g. Egypt, Middle East and Early Christianity.
