Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
A much discussed question in classical studies is the comparison between the situation of poets in augustan Rome & that of artists & intellectuals in the totalitarian regimes of the 20th century. This volume offers new perspectives on the problem.
Description for Reader
All those interested in Classical Antiquity, Aesthetics and Political Philosophy, Ancient and Modern History, East Asia.
Main Description
A much discussed question in classical studies is the comparison between the situation of poets in Augustan Rome and that of artists and intellectuals in the totalitarian regimes of the twentieth century. As instructive as this question proves to be for an understanding of the relation between the freedom of art and thinking on the one hand and power on the other, it also reveals the insufficiency of our present grasp of this crucial articulation of our humanity. This volume offers a multidisciplinary and comparative approach to the problem, complementing the historical perspective with a regard on Eastern traditions. It thus explores tentative paths for future research on an issue of critical importance for the shaping of the global world.
