Description
How do we get from the polis to the police? Or from Odysseusís sirens to an ambulanceís? The legacy of ancient Greece and Rome has been imitated, misunderstood, and reworked by every Western culture that followed. In this volume, 500 articles by a wide range of scholars examine the afterlife of this rich heritage in the fields of literature, philosophy, art, architecture, history, politics, religion, and science. Arranged alphabetically from Academy to Zoology, the essays show how the classical tradition has shaped human endeavors from art to government, mathematics to medicine, drama to urban planning, legal theory to popular culture.
