Remaking scarcity : from capitalist inefficiency to economic democracy by Costas Panayotakis( )

13 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The dominant schools of neoclassical and neoliberal economics tell us that material scarcity is an inevitable product of an insatiable human nature. Against this, Costas Panayotakis argues that scarcity is in fact a result of the social and economic processes of the capitalist system. The overriding importance of the logic of capital accumulation accounts for the fact that capitalism is not able to make a rational use of scarce resources and the productive potential at the disposal of human society. Instead, capitalism produces grotesque inequalities and unnecessary human suffering, a toxic consumerist culture that fails to satisfy, and a deepening ecological crisis. 'Remaking Scarcity' is a powerful challenge to the current economic orthodoxy. It asserts the core principle of economic democracy, that all human beings should have an equal say over the priorities of the economic system, as the ultimate solution to scarcity and ecological crisis."--Publisher's website
Decimus Laberius : the fragments by D Laberius( )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in English and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What survives from the scripts of the Roman literary mime today comprises some 55 titles of plays, a number of literary fragments (not all of them considered to be genuine extracts) which amount to about 200 lines, and a collection of over 730 sententiae, some of which are attributed to the mimographer Publilius. It is far from certain that all of these one-line apophthegms, which lack a theatrical context and were composed in iambic or trochaic metres, were written by him. The length of the remaining mime-fragments, composed usually in senarii or septenarii, varies from one word to 27 lines. The fragments are cited mainly by grammarians and lexicographers on account of their linguistic features and their literary value. The overwhelming majority of these mime-fragments, 44 titles and about 150 lines, is currently attributed to the Roman knight and mimographer Decimus Laberius, a contemporary of Cicero and Caesar, both of whom Laberius is reported to have confronted in public"--Provided by publisher
Theatrum Arbitri : theatrical elements in the Satyrica of Petronius by Costas Panayotakis( Book )

16 editions published in 1995 in English and German and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theatrum Arbitri is a literary study dealing with the possible influence of Roman comic drama (comedies of Plautus and Terence, theatre of the Greek and Roman mimes, and fabula Atellana) on the surviving fragments of Petronius' Satyrica." "The theatrical assessment of this novel is carried out at the levels of plot-construction, characterization, language, and reading of the text as if it were the narrative equivalent of a farcical staged piece with the theatrical structure of a play produced before an audience. The analysis follows the order of each of the scenes in the novel." "The reader will also find a brief general commentary on the less discussed scenes of the Satyrica, and a comprehensive account of the theatre of the mimes and its main features."--BOOK JACKET

Decimus Laberius : the Fragments by Costas Panayotakis( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a newly revised, critical text of the fragments attributed to the Roman knight and mimographer Decimus Laberius, a witty and crudely satirical contemporary of Cicero and Caesar. Laberius is perhaps the most celebrated comic playwright of the late Republic, and the fragments of plays attributed to him comprise the overwhelming majority of the extant evidence for what we conventionally call 'the literary Roman mime'. The volume also includes a survey of the characteristics and development of the Roman mime, both as a literary genre and as a type of popular theatrical entertainment, as well as a re-evaluation of the place of Laberius' work within its historical and literary context. This is the first English translation of all the fragments, and the first detailed English commentary on them from a linguistic, metrical, and (wherever possible) theatrical perspective

Slaves and masters in the ancient novel( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The present volume contains revised versions of most of the papers that were delivered at RICAN 7, which was held in Rethymnon, Crete, on 27-28 May 2013. The focus of the conference was on the portrayal and function of male and female slaves and their masters/mistresses in the ancient novel and related texts; the complex relationship between these social categories raises questions about slavery and freedom, gender and identity, stability of the self and social mobility, social control and social death. The papers offer a wide and rich range of perspectives: enslavement of elite women in Chariton's Callirhoe and Stoic ideas of moral slavery in Dio Chrysostom (Hilton); reversal of social status and techniques of (self-)characterization in Chariton (De Temmerman); the interaction between implicit and explicit narratives of slavery in Chariton and its effect on the readers of the novel (Owens); the narratological, structural and symbolic centrality of slavery in Xenophon's Ephesiaka (Trzaskoma); the socio-historical dimensions of slavery and the prominent discourse on despotism in Iamblichus' Babyloniaka (Dowden); the balance between historical accuracy and fiction in the representation of slavery in Achilles Tatius (Billault); animals, human slaves and elite masters, and the presence of Rome in Longus' Daphnis and Chloe (Bowie); the distribution of slaves on the geographical, cultural and moral maps drawn in Heliodorus' Aithiopika (Montiglio); slave women and their relationships to their mistresses as positive and negative paradigms of love in Heliodorus' Aithiopika (Morgan and Repath); the freedman's world as a self-perpetuating and closed universe in Petronius' Satyrica (Bodel); beauty, slavery and the destabilization of societal norms and authority figures in Petronius' Satyrica (Panayotakis); the interaction between Roman comedy and elegy in the representation of the relationship of Lucius and Photis in Apuleius' Metamorphoses (May); a comparative analysis of the semantics and function of slavery-related terms in pseudo-Lucian's Onos and Apuleius' Metamorphoses (Paschalis); enslaved and free storytelling in the Life of Aesop and the history and evolution of the ancient fable tradition (Lefkowitz)"--Back cover

Eumolpus' Pro Encolpio and Lichas' In Encolpium: Petr. Sat. 107 by Costas Panayotakis( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This paper offers a close reading of one of the less studied scenes in Petronius’ novel: the debate between the poetaster Eumolpus and the captain Lichas during the ‘trial’ of Encolpius and Giton, who pose as shorn and branded fugitives on board Lichas’ ship. I argue that (1) the careful structure and composition of this episode suggests that the narrator Encolpius was well aware of the rhetorical and literary conventions of the sources he was exploiting when re-shaping this episode of his past; and (2) although certain points in this debate are similar to motifs frequently and effectively employed in Ciceronian speeches, Eumolpus and Lichas may be viewed as amateurs involved in a rhetorical controversia of the type studied by the Elder Seneca and used by the Younger Seneca in the plot of some of his plays. But more important than the portrayal of Eumolpus as a ‘hopeless Cicero’ or an unskilled student of rhetoric is the way in which the trial-scene in Petronius ‘disintegrates’ from a pair of equally long speeches to a pair of uneven arguments and then to mere slapstick and blows. This is characteristic of the way in which Petronius constructs his text and elicits humour: several literary sources are exploited for the composition of a single, multi-layered episode, whose plot eventually crumbles and falls to pieces.Dr Costas Panayotakis is Senior Lecturer in Classics at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, where he has been teaching since 1993. He is the author of Theatrum Arbitri: Theatrical Elements in the Satyrica of Petronius (Leiden 1995), and of annotated translations into Modern Greek of Publilius, and of selected plays of Plautus and Terence. He is currently working on a commentary on the fragments of the mimographer Decimus Laberius

Nuova edizione critica e commento delle Artes grammaticae (libri I-II) di Plozio Sacerdote e dei Catholica Probi by Andrea Bramanti( )

1 edition published in 2020 in Italian and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Quoiqu'il soit le premier grammairien arrivé à nous, auteur de trois livres presque entièrement conservés, Marius Plotius Sacerdos, maître d'école à Rome à la fin du IIIe siècle ap. J.-C., pour longtemps a été négligé. Maintenant, l'étude de l'entière tradition manuscrite, incluant pour la première fois les contributions des copies humanistiques, a permis de dépasser les limites de l'édition de Keil et d'établir une nouvelle édition critique des deux premiers livres de sa grammaire ainsi que celle des Catholica Probi, en tant que forme parallèle et séparée du deuxième livre. Comme d'habitude, dans l'introduction on fournit les informations sur l'auteur et, à travers l'analyse structurale du texte, on chercher de présenter l'œuvre de Sacerdos comme la première tentative de construire une grammaire scolaire systématique. Le copieux commentaire veut mener à une compréhension exhaustive des textes, envisagent les implications de doctrine grammaticale, les problèmes textuels, les relations avec les autres grammairiens ainsi qu'avec la tradition exégétique antique
