Like us, ancient Greeks and Romans came to know and understand their world through their senses. Yet it has long been recognized that the world the ancients perceived, and the senses through which they channelled this information could operate differently from the patterns and processes of perception in the modern world. This series explores the relationship between perception, knowledge and understanding in the literature, philosophy, history, language and culture of ancient Greece and Rome.

Reviews

"Reviewing the six volumes included in this set from Routledge has been a delight [...] I can sum these up in one word: essential. Every single essay contributes significantly to our perception of the ancient world [...] No student of antiquity, whether classicist, ancient historian, or archaeologist, can truly appreciate the ancient world without careful study of the essays in this series. I believe that at least a curated selection of them should adorn every syllabus, undergraduate and graduate."

- Joshua R. Hall, Ancient World Magazine
