Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415099609, Paperback)This text discusses aspects of antiquity. It asks the reader in how far we have reinvented antiquity, by applying modern concepts and understandings to its study. Furthermore, it challenges the notion that perceptions of the self, of modern societal and institutional structures, originated in the Enlightenment. Rather, the authors and contributors argue, there are many continuities and marked similarities between the classical and the modern world.
