Socrates in the Agora WITH 14 Additional Photographs

By Lang, Mabel L.

Princeton NJ: American School of Classical Studies at Athens`, 1978. Series : Excavations at the Athenian Agora # 17. "As far as we know, the 5th-century B.C. Greek philosopher Socrates himself wrote nothing. We discover his thoughts and deeds entirely through the writings of his followers, disciples who accompanied him on his walks through the Athenian Agora and engaged in dialogue with him in the Stoa Basileios. Rather than examining his ideas in abstract, this stimulating little book aims to place Socrates in his physical setting, using textual references to follow his progress through the material remains that have been uncovered by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens since 1931. The author not only sheds new light on the great philosopher’s life, but also provides a vivid reconstruction, through following the career of one of its most famous citizens, of daily life at the center of classical Athens." 32p. illus PLUS 14 glossy phototgraphs of the Agora. .

Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1979. "An account of the development of Greek art in the Classical period (about 480-320 BC) which places particular emphasis on the meaning and content of Greek sculpture, architecture and painting.

He does not ignore formal development but always relates this to social and cultural history, which it reflected and from which it grew. While his subject is art, he refers frequently to the literature and philosophy of the period which were shaped by the same influences." 205p. illus. bibliography. index. . Reprint. Softcover. Fine.
