Product description

Review

'This book is of wider relevance than just to teachers and students of classics, for whom it affords an invaluable resource. It relates to all of us who, as Seaford says, 'live in a world in which the monetisation first observable in the Greek polis has had several centuries to develop …' The Lecturer

'This book is a tour de force … It is set to become a compulsory reading for all serious students and scholars of Greek thought.' The Journal of Classics Teaching

'… masterful … This intriguing, provocative book is essential reading for anyone curious about the dynamic forces which propelled Greek culture to its highest achievements in tragedy and philosophy.' The Heythrop Journal

'… this is a book that brims with ideas.' Journal of Hellenic Studies

'… a well thought through, carefully organised, well structured and competently balanced work. It promises a fascinating and stimulating read.' Ancient West and East

Book Description

How were the Greeks of the sixth century BC able to invent philosophy and tragedy? In this book Richard Seaford argues that the answer can be found in another momentous development, the invention and rapid spread of coinage, which produced the first ever thoroughly monetised society.
