Adversaries and Authorities: Investigations into Ancient Greek and Chinese Science - First edition

1996, ISBN: 0521556953

Paperback, ID: 9849051975

[EAN: 9780521556958], Near Fine, [PU: Cambridge University Press (1996), Cambridge], History|Asia|China, History|Europe|Greece, Philosophy|Eastern|General, Philosophy|History & Surveys|Ancient & Classical, Science|History, No signatures.; xvii, [1], 250 pages + [4] pages advertisements. "This is a wide-ranging exploration of the similarities and differences between ancient Greek and ancient Chinese science and philosophy, concentrating on the period down to AD 300. Professor Lloyd studies such questions as the attitudes towards authority, the practice of confrontational debate, the role of methodological inquiries, the development of techniques of persuasion, the assumptions made about causal explanation and the focus of interest in the study of the heavens and in that of the human body. In each case the Greek and Chinese ways of posing the problems are carefully distinguished to avoid applying either Greek categories to Chinese thought or vice versa. Professor Lloyd shows that the science produced in each ancient civilisation differs in important respects and relates those differences to the values and social institutions in question." Table of Contents:1. Comparative studies and their problems: methodological preliminaries; 2. Adversaries and authorities; 3. Methodology, epistemology and their uses; 4. The techniques of persuasion; 5. Causes and correlations; 6. Greek and Chinese dichotomies revisited; 7. Finite and infinite in Greece and China; 8. Heavenly harmonies; 9. The politics of the body; 10. Science in antiquity: the Greek and Chinese cases and their relevance to the problems of culture and cognition; Glossary of Chinese and Greek terms; Bibliography; Index.; Ideas in Context; 8vo

ID: 1760993

Did science and philosophy develop differently in ancient Greece and ancient China? If so, can we say why? This book consists of a series of detailed studies of cosmology, natural philosophy, mathematics and medicine that suggest the answer to the first question is yes. To answer the second, the author relates the science produced in each ancient civilization first to the values of the society in question and then to the institutions within which the scientists and philosophers worked.
