About Book

Lindsay Judson, Times Higher Education Supplement
"Lloyd's masterly book . . . offers a fascinating and persuasive picture of ancient Greek scientists at work, a complex analysis involving a wide range of issues and many different sciences. Lloyd handles the labyrinthine and often problematic evidence with delicacy and skill. . . . He succeeds in distilling from the mass of evidence and scholarly debate a lucid account of his subject which is presented in an uncluttered and well-paced text."

Book Description
G.E.R. Lloyd's wide-ranging and historical study of the development of Greek science is a valuable contribution to current debates in the philosophy of language, on the analysis of scientific revolutions, and the rationality of science.

About the Author
G. E. R. Lloyd is Professor of Ancient Philosophy and Science at Cambridge University and Master of Darwin College.
