Editorial Reviews


"...the book's 592 pages fairly bristle with ideas and insights that should excite and intrigue anyone with a serious interest in classical and preclassical Greek antiquity." --Phoenix

Book Description

How can the ancient Greeks help us define ourselves as both citizens and individual selves? This study looks to the ways the Greeks decided questions of justice as a key to understanding how our moral and political lives can be intertwined. Using Greek epic, law, drama, philosophy and forensic rhetoric over nearly six hundred years, it identifies the various "scripts" of citizen life that inspired different philosophies of moral individualism and political obligation in remarkable individuals from Achilles and Odysseus to Pericles, Alcibiades and Socrates.
