Lloyd, G. E. R.: Greek Science
Published by The Folio Society in 2012. First edition. Hardcover. Good antiquarian condition. Internally clean with no handwriting or previous owner inscriptions. Comes without the original slipcase. Illustrated.
Greek Science is an excellent introduction to the origins of science from its beginnings to the late second century AD. Lloyd also investigates the relationships between science and philosophy and science and medicine; he discusses the social and economic setting of early Greek science; and he analyzes the motives and incentives of the different groups of writers.
Greek Science was originally published by W. W. Norton & Company in two volumes, Early Greek Science: Thales to Aristotle and Greek Science after Aristotle, in 1970 and 1973 respectively.
