Ordering Knowledge in the Roman Empire

Details

This innovative volume gathers together essays which consider the place of knowledge in the Roman Empire. They look at how knowledge was conceived and in what forms it was recorded, and how this relates to the wider social and political structures and realities of the Empire, with a broad assumption that methods of presenting and processing knowledge are implicitly grounded in ideology. Some of the 'organisers of knowledge' covered in the volume include Galen, Plutarch, Diogenes Laertius, Isidore of Seville, and Frontinus.
