About the Authors
  • Greek Science, first published in 1999, is written for scientists, classicists, historians of science, and anyone with an interest in the beginnings of science. It surveys the range and scope of ancient work on topics now called science, at a lively pace and with colourful examples. It encompasses ancient empirical studies as well as theoretical works, the life sciences and the exact sciences, and is written by one of the foremost authorities on ancient science and technology. No knowledge of Greek, Latin, or ancient history is assumed.

    • First comprehensive review of Greek science in English for a generation (25 years)
    • Well written in direct and clear prose, with a light touch and a sense of humour
    • No previous knowledge of science or ancient history assumed
