Brill's companion to George Grote and the classical tradition by Kyriakos N Dēmētriou( )

14 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Grote's (1794-1871) extensive publications on ancient Greek history and philosophy remain landmarks in the history of classical scholarship. Since the late 20th century, lively interest in the works of Grote has seen his profile revived and his ongoing significance highlighted: he has taken up his rightful place among the most celebrated nineteenth-century classical intellectuals. Grote's critical engagement with Greek historiography and philosophy revolutionized classical studies in his day--a revolution set against both long-established interpretations and prevailing trends in German Altertumswissenschaft. Twenty-first-century scholarship shows that Grote's works remain lively, sparkling and relevant, as they offer valuable insights that cut across the intellectual borders of the Victorian age. His diligent scholarship, fascination with evidence and sound judgement, intertwined with intriguing and insightful narrative prose, continue to captivate the attention of modern readers. In Brill's Companion to George Grote and the Classical Tradition, Kyriakos N. Demetriou leads a team of prominent scholars to contextualize, unravel and explore Grote's works as well as provide a critical assessment of his posthumous legacy. Contributors: Pierre Briant, Paul Cartledge, Catherine Fuller, John Gibbins, Giovanni Giorgini, James Kierstead, Bruce Kinzer, Antis Loizides, Peter Liddel, Sarrah Richardson, J.B. Schneewind, Robin Smith and Catherine Zuckert"--Provided by publisher
Democracy in transition : political participation in the European Union by Kyriakos N Dēmētriou( )

19 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The papers in this collection, written by a cross-regional group of experts, provide insights into the causes of declining levels of citizen participation and other distinct forms of civic activism in Europe and explore a range of factors contributing to apathy and eventually disengagement from vital political processes and institutions. At the same time, this volume examines informal or unconventional types of civic engagement and political participation corresponding to the rapid advances in culture, technology and social networking. The volume is divided into three interrelated parts: Part I consists of critical essays in the form of theoretical approaches to analyzing weakening political participation and citizen estrangement; Part II is dedicated to an exploration of the role and deployment of technologically advanced media, such as the internet, as determinants of changing patterns of political participationist behaviour. Finally, Part III presents findings of empirical research on the issue of political participation. Combining theoretical and empirical perspectives, the book contributes towards a better understanding of the disquieting trend of voter apathy and disenchantment with politics in the context of the ongoing process of European integration, and offers a variety of analytical tools for decoding both the emergence of alternative conceptualizations of citizenship and other forms of meaningful civic and political engagement."--Publisher's website

John Stuart Mill : a British Socrates( )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This edited collection brings together research by European and American scholars and presents several essays analyzing recent developments in the interpretation of John Stuart Mill. As a lively discussion of Mill's moral and political thought, his influence on contemporary political debates, and the influences that shaped his own thought, this volume explores Mill's intellectual engagement with the Utilitarians and the Romantics, his parliamentary activity and public educative radicalism in Victorian Britain. Moreover, it also engages with twentieth-century readings of his work, those of Quentin Skinner, Isaiah Berlin and John Rawls in particular. In a rare moment in the history of philosophy theory meets practice with Mill combining the powers of the radical philosopher with a strong desire to contribute to the improvement and welfare of humankind; this volume tries to do justice to both facets of his though and influence."--Publisher's website
Brill's companion to the reception of Euripides by Rosanna Lauriola( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brill's Companion to the Reception of Euripides provides a comprehensive account of the influence and appropriation of all extant Euripidean plays since their inception: from antiquity to modernity, across cultures and civilizations, from multiple perspectives and within a broad range of human experience and cultural trends, namely literature, intellectual history, visual arts, music, opera and dance, stage and cinematography. A concerted work by an international team of specialists in the field, the volume is addressed to a wide and multidisciplinary readership of classical reception studies, from experts to non-experts. Contributors engage in a vividly and lively interactive dialogue with the Ancient and the Modern which, while illuminating aspects of ancient drama and highlighting their ever-lasting relevance, offers a thoughtful and layered guide of the human condition."--
Scientific statesmanship, governance and the history of political philosophy by Kyriakos N Dēmētriou( )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the centuries, the question of "good" or "effective" governance has undergone several transformations and ramifications to fit within certain social, cultural and historical contexts. What defines political knowledge? What is the measure of expert political leadership? Various interpretations, perspectives, and re-conceptualizations emerge as one moves from Plato to the present. This edited book explores the relationship between political expertise, which is defined as "scientific statesmanship or governance, " and political leadership throughout the history of ideas. An outstanding group of experts study and analyze the ideas of significant philosophers, such as Plato, Aristotle, Augustine, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, Montesquieu, Kant, Burke, Comte, and Weber, among others. The contributors aim to interpret these thinkers' approaches to "scientific statesmanship, " deepening our understanding of the idea itself and decoding its theoretical complexities. In the face of the ongoing crisis of the traditional party system and the eroding structures within the new cultural-financial and political environment in the era of globalization, tracing the connection between Plato's idealist statesmanship to twentieth-century modernist politics is an important and ever-challenging enterprise; one that promises to interest scholars of the history of western political thought, philosophy, classics and the classical tradition, political science, and sociology.--

Brill's companion to the classics, fascist Italy and Nazi Germany by Helen Roche( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and Spanish and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first ever guide to the manifold uses and reinterpretations of the classical tradition in Mussolini's Italy and Hitler's Germany, 'Brill's Companion to the Classics, Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany' explores how political propaganda manipulated and reinvented the legacy of ancient Greece and Rome in order to create consensus and historical legitimation for the Fascist and National Socialist dictatorships. The memory of the past is a powerful tool to justify policy and create consensus, and, under the Fascist and Nazi regimes, the legacy of classical antiquity was often evoked to promote thorough transformations of Italian and German culture, society, and even landscape. At the same time, the classical past was constantly recreated to fit the ideology of each regime
