Plutarch And His Intellectual World: Essays On Plutarch

Plutarch And His Intellectual World: Essays On Plutarch by Judith Mossman
English | December 31st, 1997 | ISBN: 0715627783 | 258 Pages | PDF | 2.20 MB

Plutarch's writings, for long treated in a fragmentary way as a source for earlier periods, are now increasingly studied in their own right. The thirteen original essays in this volume range over Plutarch's relations with his contemporaries and his engagement in philosophical debate, his views on social issues such as education and gender, his modes of expression and his construction of argument.

Also treated here are Plutarch's understanding and use of his antecedents, literary and historical, and the sophisticated techniques with which he conveyed his own vision. It is a theme of the present book that the writings of Plutarch should be seen as the product of a single, extraordinarily capacious, intelligence.
