The Greeks and the irrational by E. R Dodds( Book )

230 editions published between 1951 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 3,395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this philosophy classic, which was first published in 1951, E.R. Dodds takes on the traditional view of Greek culture as a triumph of rationalism. Using the analytical tools of modern anthropology and psychology, Dodds asks, "Why should we attribute to the ancient Greeks an immunity from 'primitive' modes of thought which we do not find in any society open to our direct observation?" Praised by reviewers as "an event in modern Greek scholarship" and "a book which it would be difficult to over-praise," The Greeks and the Irrational was Volume 25 of the Sather Classical Lectures series."--GoogleBooks
Pagan and Christian in an age of anxiety : some aspects of religious experience from Marcus Aurelius to Constantine by E. R Dodds( Book )

133 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 2,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the philosophical and spiritual climate of the Roman Empire during the period between the accession of Marcus Aurelius and the conversion of Constantine. During this period, material decline was steepest and the ferment of new religious feelings most intense. It was an "age of anxiety" in both its material and its moral insecurity. The pax Romana was coming to an end and being succeeded by invasions, epidemics, and civil disorder. Dodds discusses general attitudes to the world and the human condition in the early Christian centuries, and goes on to analyze specific types of daemonic and religious experiences. He also considers both pagan views of Christianity and Christian views of paganism as they emerge in the literature of the time.--From publisher description
The Bacchae by Euripides( Book )

102 editions published between 1944 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Williams handles the spoken poetry in a flexible verse that encompasses a wide range of tone. His treatment of the lyrics uses a rhythmically bold form whose accents would particularly lend themsleves to effective choral acting
The ancient concept of progress : and other essays on Greek literature and belief by E. R Dodds( Book )

52 editions published between 1973 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,008 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce recueil de dix essais propose un éclairage sur les questions du progrès, de la place de l'irrationnel ou encore des rapports de la politique et de la morale dans la Grèce antique. Mettant en évidence la modernité de la pensée de cette période, l'auteur analyse les grands dramaturges tels que Eschyle, Sophocle et Euripide ainsi que les philosophes comme Plotin et Platon
Gorgias by Plato( Book )

77 editions published between 1959 and 2002 in 5 languages and held by 862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Gorgias is a vivid introduction to central problems of moral and political philosophy. In answer to an eloquent attack on morality as conspiration of the weak against the strong, Plato develops his own doctrine, insisting that the benefits of being moral always outweigh any benefits to be won from immorality. He applies his views to such questions as the errors of democracy, the role of the political expert in society, and the justification of punishment. In the notes to this translation, Professor Irwin discusses the historical and social context of the dialogue, expounds and criticizes the arguments, and tries above all to suggest the questions a modern reader ought to raise about Plato's doctrines
Collected poems by Louis MacNeice( Book )

25 editions published between 1966 and 1987 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early in his career, MacNeice was identified with a group of politically committed poets whose work appeared in Michael Roberts’s anthology New Signatures. MacNeice drew many of the texts for Modern Poetry: A Personal Essay from the New Signature poets. Modern Poetry was MacNeice’s plea for an "impure" poetry expressive of the poet’s immediate interests and his sense of the natural and the social world. Despite his association with young British poets Stephen Spender, W. H. Auden, writer Christopher Isherwood, and other left-wing poets, MacNeice was as mistrustful of political programs as he was of philosophical systems. In the decades since his death in 1963, Louis MacNeice's reputation as a poet (and, indeed, amongst poets) has grown steadily, and there are now several generations of readers in Ireland, Britain, and beyond, for whom he is one of the essential poets of the twentieth century. His work has also received increasing attention from academic writers and students. For both readers and critics, the nature of MacNeice's poetic work as a whole is a matter of importance, particularly so in the brilliant return to form - and unique kinds of return on lyric form itself
Stoicheiōsis theologikē = The elements of theology by Proclus( Book )

105 editions published between 1933 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 763 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A concise summa of the Neoplatonic system in its fully developed form; for the student of late Greek thought it is second in importance only to the Enneads of Plotinus.
