Details

The selected essays of Herwig Görgemanns, which have been collected in this volume for the Greek scholar from Heidelberg to commemorate his 80th birthday, combine all those elements which elsewhere would come undone in disciplinary fragmentation and in the disparity between specialization and communication skills. Detailed studies of ancient literature, the history of ideas and science are combined with a masterful description of the major philosophical and religious-theological contexts in the works of Herwig Görgemanns. The spectrum of essays in this volume ranges from the issues of "Truth and Fiction in Plato’s Atlantis Story" to the problem of "Solar Eclipses in Ancient Astronomy" as well as accounts of the history of ethics, the "Fear and Hope of the Hereafter in the Greek Writings" and of "Cosmology, Cosmogony and Creation." They contain interpretations of Plato and the Homeric Hymn to Hermes as well as of Cicero, Plutarch and Marcus Aurelius, the fourth book of Maccabees and Origen.
