Description
The society emerging in the 21st century bears an astonishing resemblance to the most prominent features of what we call the classical world—its institutions, its priorities, its entertainment, its physics, its sexual morality, its food, its politics, even its religion. Former newspaper columnist and Times Literary Supplement editor Ferdinand Mount effortlessly peels back 2,000 years of history to show how much we are like the ancients. In our eating and drinking, our bathing or exercising or making love, our habits of thought and action, and our diversions and concentrations, the ways in which we live our rich and varied lives correspond—almost eerily so—to the ways in which the Greeks and Romans lived theirs.
