Ancient Meteorology (Sciences of Antiquity)

De (autor)
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 15 May 2003
The first book of its kind in English, Ancient Meteorology discusses Greek and Roman approaches and attitudes to this broad discipline, which in classical antiquity included not only 'weather', but occurrences such as earthquakes and comets that today would be regarded as geological, astronomical or seismological.

The range and diversity of this literature highlights the question of scholarly authority in antiquity and illustrates how writers responded to the meteorological information presented by their literary predecessors.
Ancient Meteorology will be a valuable reference tool for classicists and those with an interest in the history of science.
