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

145 editions published between 1951 and 2020 in 10 languages and held by 3,083 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 )

83 editions published between 1919 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,804 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 )

100 editions published between 1944 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,063 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Using to the full the last half century's great accessions to the comparative study of religion, [Dodds] has given a coherent and convincing reconstruction of the Dionysiac background--and, indeed, foreground--of the play, illustrating it with many instructive non-Greek and modern parallels.... Equally instructive and stimulating is the acute analysis of the play's dramatic elements, its characters, scenes, conflicts, actions, speeches.... This edition far surpasses its predecessors in vitality, sympathy, and scope."--W.B. Stanford, Hermathena LXV. Including a comprehensive discussion of the play's background and an incisive assessment of its dramatic structure, this edition makes an outstanding contribution to Euripides scholarship."--Amazon
The ancient concept of progress : and other essays on Greek literature and belief by E. R Dodds( Book )

59 editions published between 1973 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,057 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 )

79 editions published between 1891 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 866 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
The collected poems of Louis MacNeice by Louis MacNeice( Book )

20 editions published between 1966 and 1979 in English and Undetermined and held by 545 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

Collected poems by Louis MacNeice( Book )

12 editions published between 1949 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For both readers and critics, the nature of MacNeice's poetic work as a whole is a matter of importance. This work attempts to print MacNeice's poetry in groupings corresponding closely to the collections published by Faber between 1935 and 1963
Heiden und Christen in einem Zeitalter der Angst Aspekte religiöser Erfahrung von Mark Aurel bis Konstantin by E. R Dodds( Book )

43 editions published between 1965 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The enneads by Plotinus( Book )

16 editions published between 1956 and 2016 in English and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Enneads bring together Platonism, mystic passion and ideas from Greek philosophy, together with striking variants of the Trinity and other central Christian doctrines, to produce a highly original synthesis. Yet despite the profundity of his thought, and his immense influence on mystics and religious writers, Plotinus (AD 204-70) remained largely inaccessible. What was desperately needed, suggest John Dillon in his Biographical Sketch, was 'an interpretative translation, which would boldly tease out all the nuances of Plotinus' crabbed and condensed language, and reproduce it in English of proper nobility'. Such is precisely the achievement of Stephen MacKenna; his book ranks with the greatest translations of the twentieth century
