Literate Education in the Hellenistic and Roman Worldsby Teresa Morgan
Pub. Date: 02/28/2006
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
In the first new interpretation of Hellenistic and Roman education for fifty years, Teresa Morgan draws on evidence from all over the classical world, including papyri from Graeco-Roman Egypt, to re-examine one of the institutions which made that world an entity, and which was one of its most influential legacies to the west. She introduces fresh interpretations of the function of literature, grammar and rhetoric in education, and in addition explores Hellenistic and Roman theories of cognitive development.
