    Dialogues and Essays (Owc) *

    Seneca
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Translated by John Davie and Edited by Tobias Reinhardt The fullest translation of Seneca's treatises (dialogues and essays) in print, showing the range of Seneca's philosophical interests in its most accessible form. John Davie's translations are modern and readable and reflect Seneca's desire to make Stoic teaching accessible and comprehensible. Tobias Reinhardt's introduction is wide ranging and as well as covering Seneca's career, literary style, and influence,includes a masterly summary of Stoic philosophy and Seneca's interpretation of it. His notes are the fullest of any comparableedition. Seneca's philosophical writings on subjects such as the shortness of life, anger, tranquillity of mind, and consolations for grief on the loss of a loved one, are strikingly applicable to our modern world.'No man is crushed by misfortune unless he has first been deceived by prosperity.'In these dialogues and essays the Stoic philosopher Seneca outlines his thoughts on how to live in a troubled world. Tutor to the young emperor Nero, Seneca wrote exercises in practical philosophy that draw upon contemporary Roman life and illuminate theintellectual concerns of the day. They also have much to say to the modern reader, as Seneca ranges widely across subjects such as the shortness of life, tranquillity of mind, anger, mercy, happiness, and grief at the loss of a loved one. Seneca'saccessible, aphoristic style makes his writing especially attractive as an introduction to Stoic philosophy, and belies its reputation for austerity and dogmatism. This edition combines a clear and modern translation with an introduction to Seneca's lifeand philosophical interests, and helpful notes.

  • The Meditations (Owc) * 2011

    The Meditations (Owc) * 2011

    Marcus Aurelius
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius (AD 121-180) is a private notebook of philosophical reflections, written by a Roman emperor probably on military campaign in Germany. In short, highly charged comments, Marcus draws on Stoic philosophy to confrontchallenges that he felt acutely, but which are also shared by all human beings - the looming presence of death, making sense of one's social role and projects, the moral significance of the universe. They bring us closer to the personality of theemperor, who is often disillusioned with his own status and with human activities in general

    The First Emperor (Owc) *

    Sima, Quian
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Selections from the Historical RecordsRaymond Dawson and Preface by K. E. Brashier A unique selection from the foremost ancient Chinese historian Sima Qian's Historical Records of the period covering the Qin dynasty which unified China in 221 BC and created the empire that lasted until 1911. The tomb of the First Emperor, founderof the dynasty, was guarded by the famous terracotta warriors. Contents cover the birth of the First Emperor, the assassination attempt on his life, an account of Qin's Chief Minister and short biography of the builder of the Great Wall, a history of the years immediately after unification, religious practicesand the story of one of the rebels who toppled the dynasty. Highly anecdotal, the book has plenty of sex, bawdy humour, violence, intrigue and grandeur. Fluent and attractive translation by one of the foremost scholars of Classical Chinese, Raymond Dawson, with an interesting introduction and unobtrusive notes. New preface updates the archaeological finds and shows how they help us understand and appreciate Sima Qian's detail. Up-to-date bibliography, map, and index.'The following year Qin unified all under Heaven and the title of August Emperor was immediately adopted.'The short-lived Qin dynasty unified China in 221 BC and created an imperial legacy that lasted until 1911. The extraordinary story of the First Emperor, founder of the dynasty, is told in the Historical Records of Sima Qian, the Grand Historiographer andthe most famous Chinese historian. He describes the Emperor's birth and the assassination attempt on his life, as well as the political and often brutal events that led to the founding of the dynasty and its aftermath. Sima Qian recounts the building ofthe Great Wall, the 'burning of the books', and the construction of the First Emperor's magnificent tomb, a tomb now world famous since the discovery of the terracotta warriors in 1974. Sima Qian's love of anecdote ensures that his history is never dull,and Raymond Dawson's fluent translation captures his lively and vivid style. Chronicling recent archaeological developments and questioning Sima Qian's biases, K. E. Brashier's preface highlights the importance of the Grand Historiographer's account andDawson's translation in the twenty-first century.

Stadter* The most comprehensive selection availableLycurgus, Pericles, Solon, Nicias, Themistocles, Alcibiades, Cimon, Agesilaus, Alexander`I treat the narrative of the Lives as a kind of mirror...The experience is like nothing so much as spending time in their company and living with them: I receive and welcome each of them in turn as my guest.'In the nine lives of this collection Plutarch introduces the reader to the major figures and periods of classical Greece.

    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    'Athena seized the writhing serpent and hurled it into the sky, and fixed it to the very pole of the heavens.'The constellations we recognize today were first mapped by the ancient Greeks, who arranged the stars into patterns for that purpose. In the third century BC Eratosthenes compiled a handbook of astral mythology in which the constellations were associatedwith figures from legend, and myths were provided to explain how each person, creature, or object came to be placed in the sky. Thus we can see Heracles killing the Dragon, and Perseus slaying the sea-monster to save Andromeda

    Poetics (Owc) *

    Aristotle
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Aristotle's Poetics is the most influential book on poetry ever written. A founding text of European aesthetics and literary criticism, from it stems much of our modern understanding of the creation and impact of imaginative writing, including poetry,drama, and fiction.

In his short treatise Aristotle discusses the origins of poetry and its earlydevelopment, the nature of tragedy and plot, and offers practical advice to playwrights.This new translation by Anthony Kenny is accompanied by associated material from Plato and a range of responses from more modern literary practitioners: Sir Philip Sidney, P. B. Shelley, and Dorothy L. Sayers. The book includes a wide-rangingintroduction and notes, making this the most accessible and attractive modern edition.ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe.

It presents Aristotle's thought accurately, while at the same time simplifying and expanding the often crabbed and elliptical style of the original, so that it is verymuch easier to read. A lucid introduction and extensive notes explain the general structure of each section of the book, and shed light on particular problems.
