9780415311199: Ancient Botany (Sciences of Antiquity Series)
Reseña del editor:

The first book to ever be published on this subject, Gavin Hardy's study of botany in the ancient world is a tremendous contribution to the field, and one to which generations of classicist will turn for help. A much-needed account, perfect for undergraduates, and anyone with an interest in the history of natural science, it includes illustrations of coins and pottery, and botanical images of medieval manuscripts such as "De Materia Medica", as well as a comprehensive bibliography. Examining writers and collating information from contemporary sources "Ancient Botany": studies writers such as Menestor and Empedocles and gives an account of what was known, or thought of, about plants before the Lyceum of Aristotle expounds the writings of Theophrastus of Eresus, which encapsulate everything that was known about plants in the fourth century BC; and, examines how study in the Lyceum was directed to plants in their own right; how to recognize them, classify them, their ecology, and plant diseases. The study and classification of plants was invented by Aristotle's pupil Theophrastus, and the world of the late antique dioscorides remained fundamental into early modern times - therefore, this book is of immense value for historians of science for all periods.

Reseña del editor:

Gavin Hardy and Laurence Totelin have brought together their botanical and historical knowledge to produce this unique overview of ancient botany. It examines all the founding texts of botanical science, such as Theophrastus' Enquiry into Plants, Dioscorides' Materia Medica, Pliny the Elder's Natural History, Nicolaus of Damascus' On Plants, and Galen' On Simple Remedies, but also includes lesser known texts ranging from the sixth century BCE to the seventh century CE, as well as some material evidence. The authors adopt a thematic approach rather than a chronological one, considering important issues such as the definition of a plant, nomenclature, classifications, physiology, the link between plants and their environment, and the numerous usages of plants in the ancient world. The book also takes care to place ancient botany in its historical, social and economic context. The authors have explained all technical botanical terms and ancient history notions, and as a result, this work will appeal to historians of ancient science, medicine and technology; classicists; and botanists interested in the history of their discipline.
