Editorial Reviews

Review

"Eros and Polis is wonderful and a much needed contribution to the examination of Classical Greek political thought." Bryn Mawr Classics Review

"Ludwig makes a strong case that there is much to be found in Greek theory that can complete understanding of the role of Eros in modern politics. Recommended." Choice

Book Description

Eros and Polis examines how and why Greek theorists treated political passions as erotic. Because of the tiny size of ancient Greek cities, contemporary theory and ideology could conceive of entire communities based on desire. A recurrent aspiration was to transform the polity into one great household that would bind the citizens together through ties of mutual affection. In this study, Paul Ludwig evaluates sexuality, love, and civic friendship as sources of political attachment, and as bonds of political association.
