This book, originally published in 1965, discusses the political implication of the spread of science in antiquity. It reveals how the real Greek spirit of scientific research was crushed by Plato and Aristotle, long thought-of as searchers for truth. Historian such as Polybius and Livey and the poets Pinder and Virgil are seen in a new light when set against this background of social struggle.

This book reveals Marx’s moral philosophy and analyzes its nature. The author shows that there is an underlying system of ethics which runs the length and breadth of Marx’s thought. The book begins by discussing the methodological side of Marx’s ethics showing how Marx’s criticism of conventional morality and his views on historical materialism, determinism and ideology are compatible with having an ideological system of his own. In the light of contemporary social, moral and political philosophy the insights and defects of Marx’s major ethical themes are discussed.

Edmund Burke’s Reflections on the Revolution in France is one of the major texts in the western intellectual tradition. This book describes Burke’s political and intellectual world, stressing the importance of the idea of ‘property’ in Burke’s thought. It then focuses more closely on Burke’s personal and political situation in the late 1780s to explain how the Reflections came to be written. The central part of the study discusses the meaning and interpretation of the work. In the last part of the book the author surveys the pamphlet controversy which the Reflections generated, paying particular attention to the most famous of the replies, Tom Paine’s Rights of Man. It also examines the subsequent reputation of the Reflections from the 1790s to the modern day, noting how often Burke has fascinated even writers who have disliked his politics.

It includes details specific to the histories of specialized sciences including astronomy, medicine and physics—along with Roman engineering and Greek philosophy.

Aus dem Niederländischen uebersetzt von A. Vervelde, Durchsicht des Textes: Johannes Hahn "Beschreibt in gedrängter Darstellung die Geschichte der Alten Welt und der Entstehung der europäischen Kultur und wendet sich zugleich auch an Interessierte auáerhalb des akademischen Betriebs. Klar herausgestellt werden namentlich di" allgemeinen Entwicklungslinien, ohne daá der Leser durch eine duerre Aufzählung von historischen Fakten ermuedet wird.ô Aus Empfehlungen fuer den Verband der niederländischen Volksbibliotheken "Es ist geradezu verblueffend, daá in so gedrängter Form so viel Information geboten, so viel erläutert und erhellt werden kann, ohne daá die Lektuere trocken, langweilig oder ermuedend wird - im Gegenteil: sie ist ein reiner Genuá. Das Hauptinteresse der Autoren gilt historisch allgemein wichtigen Erscheinungen der verschiedenen Epochen, wie gesellschaftlichen Strukturen, Machtverhältnissen, politischen Theorien, Erscheinungsformen der Kultur und der Religion. - Fazit: Ein aufs wärmste zu empfehlendes Lehrbuch, nicht nur fuer Studenten!"
