Full description for Thinking Men
This text explores artistic and intellectual expression in the Classical world as the self-representation of man. It starts from the premise that the history of Classical antiquity as the ancients tell it is a history of men. However, the focus of this volume is the creation, re-creation and iteration of that male self as presented in language, poetry, drama, philosophical and scientific thought and art: man constructing himself as subject in classical antiquity and beyond. This illustrated volume provides an insight into the representations of men in Classical culture.
