  • Roman Archaeology Under Italian Fascism

    By Genevieve Gessert

    By Nickolas Pappas

    This book takes a new approach to the question, "Is the philosopher to be seen as universal human being or as eccentric?". Through a reading of the Theaetetus, Pappas first considers how we identify philosophers – how do they appear, in particular how do they dress? The book moves to modern…
