Greek thought : a guide to classical knowledge ( Book )
7 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and German and held by 1,359 libraries worldwide
"Ancient Greek thought is the essential wellspring from which the intellectual, ethical, and political civilization of the West draws and to which, even today, we repeatedly return. In more than sixty essays by an international team of scholars, this volume explores the full breadth and reach of Greek thought -- investigating what the Greeks knew as well as what they thought about what they knew, and what they believed, invented, and understood about the conditions and possibilities of knowing. Calling attention to the characteristic reflexivity of Greek thought, the analysis in this book reminds us of what our own reflections owe to theirs."--Book jacket.

"This book contains many original and stimulating ideas of value to students of Greek science, of the history and philosophy of science in general, and of anthropology. Lloyd examines a set of topics central to ancient Greek medicine and biology, in particular theories and beliefs about animals, women, and the efficacy of drugs. Central throughout are his concerns with the interaction between scientific theory on the one hand and popular or folkloric belief on the other; and with the ideological character of ancient scientific inquiry and its limitations."--BOOK JACKET.

Ancient worlds, modern reflections : philosophical perspectives on Greek and Chinese science and culture by G. E. R Lloyd ( Book )
15 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 498 libraries worldwide
Publisher description: Geoffrey Lloyd engages in a wide-ranging exploration of what we can learn from the study of ancient civilizations that is relevant to fundamental problems, both intellectual and moral, that we still face today. These include, in philosophy of science, the question of the incommensurability of paradigms, the debate between realism and relativism or constructivism, and between correspondence and coherence conceptions of truth. How far is it possible to arrive at an understanding of alien systems of belief? Is it possible to talk meaningfully of 'science' and of its various constituent disciplines, 'astronomy' 'geography' 'anatomy' and so on, in the ancient world? Are logic and its laws universal? Is there one ontology - a single world - to which all attempts at understanding must be considered to be directed? When we encounter apparently very different views of reality, how far can that be put down to a difference in conceptions of what needs explaining, or of what counts as an explanation, or to different preferred modes of reasoning or styles of inquiry? Do the notions of truth and belief represent reliable cross-cultural universals? In another area, what can ancient history teach us about today's social and political problems? Are the discourses of human nature and of human rights universally applicable? What political institutions do we need to help secure equity and justice within nation states and between them? Lloyd sets out to answer all these questions, and to argue that the study of the science and culture of ancient Greece and China provided a precious resource in order to advance a wealth of modern debates.

The ambitions of curiosity : understanding the world in ancient Greece and China by G. E. R Lloyd ( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 409 libraries worldwide
"This book explores the origins and growth of systematic inquiry in Greece, China and Mesopotamia. Professor Lloyd examines which factors stimulated or inhibited this development, and whose interest were served. Who set the agenda? What was the role of the state in sponsoring, supporting or blocking research in areas such as historiography, natural philosophy, medical research, astronomy, technology, pure and applied mathematics and the rise of technical terminology in all those fields? How was each of those fields defined and developed in different ancient societies? How did truly innovative thinkers persuade their own contemporaries to accept their work? Three of the main themes elaborated are, first, the different routes those developments took in China, Greece and Mesopotamia; second, the unexpected result of many research efforts; and third, the tensions between state control and individual innovation, and the different ways they were resolved - problems that remain in scientific research today."--Jacket.

Disciplines in the making : cross-cultural perspectives on elites, learning, and innovation by G. E. R Lloyd ( Book )
8 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 262 libraries worldwide
We tend to assume that our map of the intellectual disciplines is valid cross-culturally. Lloyd challenges this in relation to eight main areas of human endeavour, namely philosophy, mathematics, history, medicine, art, law, religion, and science, by examining how the disciplines were conceived and developed.
