Galen (AD 129-200) of Pergamun: anatomist and experimental physiologist. (1/13)

Galen was a brilliant anatomist and pioneer of experimental physiology. His many important discoveries exerted a profound influence on medicine during the next 1400 years. However, his wish to solve all the problems of health and disease led him to speculate and draw mistaken conclusions which were widely believed until after the Renaissance.  (+info)

Hairstyles in the arts of Greek and Roman antiquity. (2/13)

Styling one's hair seems to be an innate desire of humans to emphasize their beauty and power. As reviewed here, hairstyles were influenced by preceding cultures, by religion, by those depicted for gods and emperors on sculptures and coins. In addition, they were determined by aspects of lifestyle such as sports, wealth, and the desire to display inner feelings. The historical changes in fashions can be exemplarily followed by a visitor to an art collection of Graeco-Roman antiquity. The study of hairstyles permits an insight into very basic aspects of the self-conception of individuals and of the respective societies.  (+info)

Hermaphroditism in Greek and Roman antiquity. (3/13)

Asclepius, Caduceus, and Simurgh as medical symbols, part I. (6/13)

This is the first of two articles reviewing the history of medical symbols. In this first article I have briefly reviewed the evolution of the Greek god, Asclepius, (and his Roman counterpart Aesculapius) with the single serpent entwined around a wooden rod as a symbol of western medicine and have alluded to the misplaced adoption of the Caduceus of the Greek god Hermes (and his Roman counterpart Mercury) with its double entwined serpents as an alternative symbol. In the second part of this article (to be published later), I have made a tentative suggestion of why the Simorgh might be adopted as an Eastern or an Asian symbol for medicine.  (+info)

Between the 9th century BC and the 6th century BC, the ancient Greek temples developed from the small mudbrick structures into double porched monumental buildings with colonnade on all sides, often reaching more than 20 metres in height (not including the roof). Stylistically, they were governed by the regionally specific architectural orders. Whereas the distinction was originally between the Doric and Ionic orders, a third alternative arose in late 3rd century BC with the Corinthian order. A multitude of different ground plans were developed, each of which could be combined with the superstructure in the different orders. From the 3rd century BC onwards, the construction of large temples became less common; after a short 2nd century BC flourish, it ceased nearly entirely in the 1st century BC. Thereafter, only smaller structures were newly begun, while older temples continued to be renovated or brought to completion if in an unfinished state.. Greek temples were designed and constructed ...

In this book, question tablets from the oracle at Dodona are set side-by-side with curse tablets (katadesmoi or defixiones) from across the Ancient Greek world (for the period 6th-1st centuries BCE). It explores what these texts reveal about perceptions of and responses to the uncertain future, and the nature of risk among ordinary Greek men and women, as well as the insights they afford into civic institutions and activities, and social dynamics. The author follows the anthropologist Mary Douglas in defining risk as socially constructed, in contrast to other ancient historians, who treat risk-management as a way of handling objective external dangers. The use of this theory encourages a new approach to both oracles and curses, and in particular, challenges the categories and theories usually used to describe and explain curses. The book includes a full catalogue of all published texts from Dodona, as well as a number of new tablets not published elsewhere, along with the 159 curse tablets discussed,

This book is concerned with the relationship between a modern philosophical idea and an ancient historical moment. It explores how the notion of pluralism, made famous by Isaiah Berlin, may be seen to feature in the Classical Greek world and, more specifically, in the thought of three of its most prominent figures: Protagoras, Herodotus, and Sophocles. The book falls into three parts, each of which considers one of these authors in detail and investigates how the core aspects of pluralism - diversity, conflict, and incommensurability - manifest themselves in a particular literary arena. Part One illustrates, through an analysis of two of his fragments and the portrait of him from Platos Protagoras, that the sophist Protagoras held that perspectives on truth and value could be plural, while ...

The origins of Western culture extensively relate to Ancient Greek culture. While many ancient cultures have contributed to our current knowledge about medicine and the origins of psychiatry, the Ancient Greeks were among the best observers of feelings and moods patients expressed towards medicine and toward what today is referred to as psychopathology. Myths and religious references were used to explain what was otherwise impossible to understand or be easily communicated. Most ancient myths focus on ambiguous feelings patients may have had towards drugs, especially psychotropic ones. Interestingly, such prejudices are common even today. Recalling ancient findings and descriptions made using myths could represent a valuable knowledge base for modern physicians, especially for psychiatrists and their patients, with the aim of better understanding each other and therefore achieving a better clinical outcome. This paper explores many human aspects and feelings towards doctors and their cures, referring

Phi (/faɪ/;[1] uppercase Φ, lowercase φ or ϕ; Ancient Greek: ϕεῖ pheî [pʰé͜e]; Modern Greek: φι fi [fi]) is the 21st letter of the Greek alphabet. In Archaic and Classical Greek (c. 9th century BC to 4th century BC), it represented an aspirated voiceless bilabial plosive ([pʰ]), which was the origin of its usual romanization as ⟨ph⟩. During the later part of Classical Antiquity, in Koine Greek (c. 4th century BC to 4th century AD), its pronunciation shifted to that of a voiceless bilabial fricative ([ɸ]), and by the Byzantine Greek period (c. 4th century AD to 15th century AD) it developed its modern pronunciation as a voiceless labiodental fricative ([f]). The romanization of the Modern Greek phoneme is therefore usually ⟨f⟩. It may be that phi originated as the letter qoppa, and initially represented the sound /kʷʰ/ before shifting to Classical Greek [pʰ].[2] In traditional Greek numerals, phi has a value of 500 (φʹ) or 500,000 (͵φ). The Cyrillic letter Ef (Ф, ...

This article argues that a holistic approach to documenting and understanding the physical evidence for individual cities would enhance our ability to address major questions about urbanisation, urbanism, cultural identities and economic processes. At the same time we suggest that providing more comprehensive data-sets concerning Greek cities would represent an important contribution to cross-cultural studies of urban development and urbanism, which have often overlooked relevant evidence from Classical Greece. As an example of the approach we are advocating, we offer detailed discussion of data from the Archaic and Classical city of Olynthos, in the Halkidiki. Six seasons of fieldwork here by the Olynthos Project, together with legacy data from earlier projects by the American School of Classical Studies at Athens and by the Greek Archaeological Service, combine to make this one of the best-documented urban centres surviving from the Greek world. We suggest that the material from the site ...

Egypt and Rome 291 had been for generations famous and respected in the Greek world. It was probably this incident which convinced Alexander of his divine nature. At any rate when in later times representa- tions were made of the god Alexander, he was generally por- trayed with the rams horns of Amen, and in the legends of Islam he is still He of the Two Horns. It moreover gave to the Greeks the oracular sanction necessary for what was to some extent a new departure in religion; it is worth noting that when in 304 B.C. the Rhodians wished to deify another king of Egypt, Ptolemy I, they first consulted Zeus Ammon. Egyptian practice thus perhaps gave the first impetus to a theory which was to have a long history. Quickly taken up by nearly all the Hellen- istic monarchies, it was adopted, at first with hesitation but soon with conviction, by the Roman Empire. When that empire became Christian it did not die: Constantine and his successors still called their palace, their laws, even their ...
The phallic bird was used in Ancient Greece for fertility rituals, and dionisiac processions where participants carried phallic poles. The unveiling of the phallus constituted an important rite of Dionysiac celebrations. The phallus was a popular symbol of fertility. Phallic imagery in public monuments and in ordinary domestic and commercial plaques can be found at different times and places throughout the Greek world. Phallic icons were often placed outside houses,in doorways, walls, boundaries, graves, etc. It was often used as a symbol of protection and warding off evil. The phallus not only decorated and protected houses but also individuals. Amulets of bronze, brass, coral, bone or gold in the shape of a phallus were often worn as rings or pendants by both children and adults to ward off evil. Phallic artifacts includes amulets, lamps, votives, figurines, boundary markers, ornaments, tintinnabula and pottery ...

Since ancient times has always tried to describe and find solutions to behavioral problems in the Greek world, emerges for the first time the concept of mental illness, referring to the madness came from an explanation of demonology. Medieval religious thought all those abnormal behaviors explained as a result of an evil eye, spell or epilepsy / possession. Priests cure people with epilepsy through what is called exorcism and apparently gave results and the company were astonished, but the reality is that the person returned to its normal state that epilepsy only lasts a short time not by exorcism. The seventeenth and eighteenth centuries are characterized by the defense of pathological and patho-physiological approaches. Pathology, this approach, explains the madness with their supposed location and reduction of the anatomical disease collide with the first conceptions of neurosis, and in general for nervous diseases, on the other hand the patho-physiological, and these were on approach to ...
Psychologically, Delphi stood at the center of the Greek world. Geographically, Delphi lies west and north of Athens: just over a hundred miles distant by road, about eighty as the eagle flies, which it does less often nowadays because of noisy tourist traffic and diesel fumes. Ancient pilgrims, hardly less numerous than their modern counterparts, lacked those mixed blessings conferred by the internal combustion engine, though their grumbling at local rapacity has a timeless flavor. So does Delphi itself, which, numinous and awesome, has long outlasted all human attempts to channel or domesticate its power.. Perched some fifteen hundred feet above the Pleistos Valley, between the twin peaks of Parnassus and the steelblue waters of the Gulf of Corinth, the site possesses a tremendous beauty that ignores rather than defies exploitation. Godhead seems inherent in the landscape. Shimmering with afternoon sunlight, the towering precipice of the Phaedriades cliffs reaches up in close and easy ...
In the fifth century BC professional educators, the sophists, travelled the Greek world claiming to teach success in public and private life. In this dialogue Plato shows the pretensions of the leading sophist, Protagoras, challenged by the critical arguments of Socrates.
By reading literary and philosophical texts with care, we will learn to think about language in a radically different way. But our focus will not merely be formal or structural. Rather, we will explore the tensions/aporias that haunt the Greek world, tensions between nature and culture (physis and nomos), between justice and power, between ethics and political expediency. My hope here is to rethink the relationship between philosophy and tragedy by situating texts within their historical context and reading historical context against the tensions within the texts. Ultimately, our aim is to read texts slowly and with care---noticing how alterations, inflections, repetitions and interrogations can change the very meaning of a work for both characters and/or readers/audience ...

Ancient Greek units of measurement varied according to location and epoch. Systems of ancient weights and measures evolved as needs changed; Solon and other lawgivers also reformed them en bloc.[citation needed] Some units of measurement were found to be convenient for trade within the Mediterranean region and these units became increasingly common to different city states. The calibration and use of measuring devices became more sophisticated. By about 500 BC, Athens had a central depository of official weights and measures, the Tholos, where merchants were required to test their measuring devices against official standards.[citation needed] Some Greek measures of length were named after parts of the body, such as the δάκτυλος (daktylos, plural: δάκτυλοι daktyloi) or finger (having the size of a thumb), and the πούς (pous, plural: πόδες podes) or foot (having the size of a shoe). The values of the units varied according to location and epoch (e.g., in Aegina a pous was ...

Although Aristotles argument differs from the Hippocratic theory in some fundamental ways, it is still challenged just as heavily by Jones. Aristotle was more interested in finding a theory of why and how females were similar and different to men, and his theory took upon some Hippocratic ideas with changes. Aristotle believed that menstruation caused a womans body to be weak, which is different than the Hippocratic idea that menstruation is caused by a womans weak, porous body. Aristotle believed not that the menstruation was a release of excess matter, but in fact a release of strength that he attributes a womans paleness and deficiency of physique to (7). Jones does not endorse either of these theories and in her analysis of their cases, questions the validity behind their reasoning. Jones also introduces the wandering womb, which was a Hippocratic idea that a woman who was not regularly having intercourse could be prone to their womb moving around their body. This belief was started ...

Chapter VIII and Conclusion: Prioreschi ends his magnum opus with a chapter on Greek physicians, discusses their social standing, and notes inscriptions dedicated to them, etc.[12] Prioreschi continues with explanations as to why the almost universal dictum that hopeless cases should not be treated was followed so commonly throughout the ancient world. He then makes concluding remarks as to why the major similarities existed in the medical systems of antiquity - the answer of course was the concept of limited options discussed previously.[1,13] This tome is a worthy sequel to Prioreschis first volume, Primitive and Ancient Medicine, and it is also highly recommended for both its invaluable information on medical history as well as the corrections and clarifications of the tenets of the Oath and ethics of Hippocrates. This tome, A History of Medicine - Volume II: Greek Medicine by Dr. Plinio Prioreschi, belongs in every public library and in the book repertoire of every physician, medical ...

At the first event, organized by Professors Andrew Wolpert and Victoria Pagán, I was part of a small group of professors who were challenged to confront this question: why is fear such a misunderstood emotion in todays world, and what can we learn about it from the ancient world? At the second event, organized by the Society for the Preservation of the Greek Heritage, I was asked to say something about the human need for the divine. I am grateful to Anna Lea, President of the SPGH, who inspired me to see a connection between such a need and what I call in this essay the subjectivity of fear. She also invited me to publish my essay in Dialogues, which is the journal of the Society for the Preservation of the Greek Heritage. I am also ...

Introduction. 1) Explain the Cosmological argument for the existence of God.(25 marks) Thomas Aquinas built upon the idea of the Cosmological argument the most by attempting to answer the question why is there a universe rather than nothing at all? , Aquinas stated that Nothing comes from nothing, the universe exists, so something must have made it, that can only be God Aquinas developed his ideas based upon an idea the ancient Greeks used; like the ancient Greek arguments, Aquinas used the natural world and the senses to reason from , thus the Cosmological argument is a posterior ( based on reason and facts) as opposed to an a priori approach through assumptions. The origins of the cosmological arguments come from the ideas of the Greek philosophers Plato and his understudy Aristotle. Plato believed that there was a prime mover which was the ultimate source of change as it alone possessed the power to change both itself and others around it , this he called the idea of motion. Plato also ...
Bergama is a city in Aegean Turkey, known for its interesting archaeological ruins from the ancient Roman city of Pergamon and its wonderful center for walking around. ==Understand== Bergama is located in north western Anatolia, 16 km from the Aegean Sea. It is a popular tourist destination due to its close proximity to the ruins of the ancient city of Pergamon, and has a population of around 60,000. Pergamon (Ancient Greek: Πέργαμον or Πέργαμος), or Pergamum, was an ancient Greek city on a promontory on the north side of the river Caicus (modern day Bakırçay), that became the capital of the Kingdom of Pergamon during the Hellenistic period, under the Attalid dynasty, 281-133 BC. Pergamon was cited in the book of Revelation as one of the seven churches of Asia. Today, the main sites of ancient Pergamon are to the north and west of the modern city of Bergama.
In Ithaca, Penelope was having difficulties. Her husband had been gone for twenty years, and she did not know for sure whether he was alive or dead. She was beset with numerous men who thought that a (fairly) young widow and queen of a small but tidy kingdom was a great prize: they pestered her to declare Odysseus dead and choose a new husband from among them. Meanwhile, these suitors hung around the palace, ate her food, drank her wine, and consorted with several of her maidservants. Penelope was despondent by her husbands long absence and especially the mystery about his fate. He could come home at any time - or never. Temporizing, she fended them off for years, using stalling tactics that were wearing thin. Meanwhile, Odysseus mother, Anticlea, had died of grief; and his father, Laërtes, was nearly so. Odysseus arrived alone. Upon landing, he was disguised as an old man or a beggar by Athena, and was welcomed by his old swineherd, Eumaeus, who did not recognize him but still treated him ...
W]e do not have a reliable knowledge of Elamite origin. As far back as 4th millennium BCE, evidence of Elamite settlement in the plains of Khuz (northern Persian Gulf) exist. Researches done on the Elamite skeletons show their racial closeness to the Sumerians and Dravidians of Indus Valley, while their language, at least in its latest form, shows very little connections with these cultures. The Elamite pottery and crafts is strongly influenced by the Sumerian artifacts, as well as Muhenjudaro and Bactro-Margiana cultural artifacts. We might assume that Elamites arrived in their homeland, most likely via the sea from southern Indus Valley region, around 3,500 BCE. Prior to their arrival, the plains of northern Persian Gulf were among the oldest civilised areas in the world history and the site of Susa was inhabited as far back as 4,200 BCE and had come under the rule of the kings of Akkad. When the ancestors of Elamites arrived, they settled in that area under the rule of the Sumerian kingdom of ...
Bergama is a city in Turkey. ==Understand== Bergama is located in north western Anatolia, 16 km from the Aegean Sea. It is a popular tourist destination due to its close proximity to the ruins of the ancient city of :WikiPedia:Pergamon, and has a population of around 60,000. Pergamon (Ancient Greek: Πέργαμον or Πέργαμος), or Pergamum, was an ancient Greek city on a promontory on the north side of the river Caicus (modern day Bakırçay), that became the capital of the Kingdom of Pergamon during the Hellenistic period, under the Attalid dynasty, 281-133 BC. Pergamon was cited in the book of Revelation as one of the seven churches of Asia. Today, the main sites of ancient Pergamon are to the north and west of the modern city of Bergama.

Ancient Greek Sandals, the company co-founded by Martini, now sells more than 80,000 sandals a year through 500 outlets around the world. Anne Hathaway is a fan, as are Gisele, Beyoncé and Sarah Jessica Parker. Porsanidis Kavvadias now has 600 olive trees (200 on the farm; 400 on rented land elsewhere on Corfu) producing Dr Kavvadia olive oil, named after his grandfather. And the couple have two children, Stefanos, five, and Daphne, two, along with two dogs and numerous cats, chickens and goats.. It would have been easier to make the sandals in China or Turkey, Martini says, when we meet at the farmhouse at the end of June. She is 38 and elegantly dressed in an Isabel Marant kaftan. But we wanted to make them in Greece. The inspiration, the summery frame of mind, the whole concept. Despite the recession and an inability to get a bank loan (her business partner raised €60,000 through family contacts), Ancient Greek Sandals turned over more than €4 million in 2014. It is a Greek success ...

A riveting, complex and often surprising exegesis that should be made compulsory reading for all students of the Greek world, ancient and modern alike . . . Aristophanes has formed a constant and central element in Greek politics and Greek theatre. Van Steen deserves all credit both for isolating this richly rewarding virgin lode, and mining it with such skill and perseverance . . . Venom in Verse is that rarity among scholarly studies: a beautifully written book, to read and reread rather than merely consult, with added pleasure at each fresh perusal.-Peter Green, Times Literary Supplement. Van Steen demonstrates how dramas originally crafted to play a role in shaping the worlds oldest democracy have similarly served the development of a new one on the same territory. Those who associate Aristophanes only with ancient will certainly profit from reading this volume.-Choice. A delightful and instructive book . . . wonderful and highly useful.-Marina Kotzamani, Journal of Modern Greek ...
One ancient contraceptive might have been so effective that it became extinct. This is believed to have happened to silphium (a species of giant fennel, Ferula), which was widely used as an oral contraceptive in the Greek world and in the ancient Near East. Overharvesting caused its price to rise and by the first century of the modern era it was described as worth more than its weight in silver. Part of the difficulty was that it grew only in a thirty-mile band along the dry mountainside facing the Mediterranean sea and attempts to expand its rate of cultivation failed. By late antiquity it had become extinct. … Silphium has a widespread reputation as both a contraceptive and an abortifacient. ...

Ancient Egypt - Macedonian and Ptolemaic Egypt (332-30 bce): In the autumn of 332 bce Alexander the Great invaded Egypt with his mixed army of Macedonians and Greeks and found the Egyptians ready to throw off the oppressive control of the Persians. Alexander was welcomed by the Egyptians as a liberator and took the country without a battle. He journeyed to Siwa Oasis in the Western Desert to visit the Oracle of Amon, renowned in the Greek world; it disclosed the information that Alexander was the son of Amon. There may also have been a coronation at the Egyptian capital, Memphis, which, if it occurred, would have placed him
The production of wine, of course, required vineyards. Watchtowers were constructed to protect the vines (Isa 5:1-2; Mk 12:1); of particular concern were foxes, who were prone to eat the grapes (SS 2:15). In the Greek world boys would hunt foxes to keep them from the vineyards. After the grapes had been harvested, the must (grape juice for fermenting) would be produced by treading out the grapes in a vat. The must would be strained and the fermentation process begun. The mixed wines were created by combining the fermented juice of the grape with other elements, including other wines, spices, honey or strong drink created from other fruits or grains. Wine diluted with water was obviously considered to be of inferior quality (Isa 1:22), although the Greeks, considering the drinking of pure wine to be an excess, routinely diluted their wine. Mixed wines served in a number of applications: Wine mixed with barley made good vinegar and, when blended with myrrh, served as an anesthetic. This last type ...
This urn takes the form of a bed, upon which the deceased are resting in the position of banqueters. This theme was not an Etruscan invention, but originated in Asia Minor: the Etruscans, like the Greeks before them, had adopted the eastern custom of feasting in a reclining position, and the conventional method of representing it. Unlike in the Greek world, where banquets were reserved for men, the Etruscan woman, who held an important place in society, is represented by her husbands side, in the same proportions and in a similar pose. The couple are reclining on cushions in the form of wineskins, a reference to the sharing of wine, a ceremony that was part of funerary ritual. Tenderly clasped by her husband, the deceased woman is pouring a few drops of perfume into his hand, probably from an alabastron, as can be seen on a small urn displayed nearby (cinerary urn with the spouses on the lid, Louvre, CP 5193); in so doing, she is making the gesture of offering perfume, another essential ...
Chiesa di Santa Maria dei Greci. This is an old Norman church which was built before approximately 1000 years. It is quite an interesting church since it is built on the site of an ancient Greek temple and the architecture is quite unique in its own way.. Via Atena. Via Atena is a lively street in the Old center of the city. The street is filled with tiny shops on both sides selling all types of trinkets and locally made products. The street comes alive with locals doing their daily shopping, and in the evenings it is a great place to experience the local lifestyle.. Almond Blossom Festival. The almond blossom festival or as it is known, Festa Del Mandorlo is held every year towards the end of February and is a great time to visit Agrigento. The city is very lively at this time of the year with several events and festivities held during the festival, quite an enjoyable way to witness the culture of the city.. ...
Readers of this blog may have noticed a distinct lack of interest on our part in classical Greek historic sites. We could have visited Delphi and Olympos if we had set our mind to it. Maybe its because we know too little about Ancient Greece. Maybe it hasnt captured our imagination sufficiently. Because imagination is probably what is most required to visit the ruins here. Not surprisingly, theres not a lot left standing. However, now here we are at Knossos, the capital of Minoan civilisation. This is the oldest known European civilisation, existing at the same time to the Egyptians in their prime and long before the classical Greek period. It consisted primarily of a collection of city states on Crete. Around the late 1800s a German archaeologist found something of interest at Knossos, but an Englishman, Evans, beat him to a deal with the Turks to start excavating here. Evans uncovered a large palace/temple complex, some of it with well-preserved frescoes. But most of it was a pile of old ...

4. The axon.. There are about 100 billion neurons in the brain. Dendrites are tree-shaped fibres which receive information from other neurons. Dendrite means tree in Ancient Greek.. Dendrites have protruberances upon them called dendritic spines rather like leaves on a tree. The spines or leaves have synapses on their surfaces which receive neurotransmitters e.g. dopamine and serotonin, from other neurons. Synapse means connection in Ancient Greek.. Axons transmit information to other neurons. Axon means to go in Ancient Greek.. The more spines or leaves there are the greater electrical firing rates of the dendrites.. In most psychiatric diseases there are changes in the shape of the neurons and in particular the dendritic spines or leaves. The dendritic spines or leaves are reduced in number and density. This may be compared to the reduction of the leaves on atree which occurs from summer to winter.. What are the changes in the immune system in frontal lobe syndrome?. Dendritic spine or leaf ...

I think it would be difficult to disentangle for a few reasons.. 1. India had been subject to the Aryan migration only around 1,200 years prior. The Aryans were presumably pretty West Eurasian as well, and arguably may have actually been lighter to begin with than Greeks. 2. Alexanders troops also only marched through portions of the subcontinent where the Aryan migration had the heaviest genetic impact. 3. We dont actually know how ancient Greek genetics differed from the those of modern Greeks. We know that many modern Greeks today came from families who spoke South Slavic, Aromanian, Turkish, or Albanian as recently as a century ago. In the Dark Ages, there were enormous influxes of Slavs into Greece, to the point where more Greeks probably lived in Asia Minor than in Peloponnesus and the walled cities which held out. The slavs were Hellenized. Arguably some modern Turks may have genetics closer to ancient Greeks. 4. Much of Alexanders army wasnt Greek (even if you assume the ...

Polis (/ˈpɒlɪs/; Greek: πόλις pronounced [pólis]), plural poleis (/ˈpɒleɪz/, πόλεις [póleːs]) literally means city in Greek. It can also mean a body of citizens. In modern historiography, polis is normally used to indicate the ancient Greek city-states, like Classical Athens and its contemporaries, and thus is often translated as city-state. These cities consisted of a fortified city centre (asty) built on an acropolis or harbor and controlled surrounding territories of land (khôra). The Ancient Greek city-state developed during the Archaic period as the ancestor of city, state, and citizenship and persisted (though with decreasing influence) well into Roman times, when the equivalent Latin word was civitas, also meaning citizenhood, while municipium applied to a non-sovereign local entity. The term city-state, which originated in English (alongside the German Stadtstaat), does not fully translate the Greek term. The poleis were not like other primordial ancient ...

Isaac Newtons infinite universal first principle theories of gravity were derived from ancient Greek science. Today these principles can demonstrate that Einsteins quantum mechanical worldview had been based upon the false assumption that Newton believed that the mass of objects in space was the first cause of gravity. Einsteins quantum mechanics led to the Big-Bang theory of the universe expanding from nothing, which appears to be quite absurd. In 1952 the Nobel Laureate scientist, Erwin Schrodinger, referred to a multiverse that to his audience might have sounded like a lunatic idea, but nonetheless his prize-winning mathematics argued otherwise. The existence of multiple parallel universes is now at the centre of great controversy. The 2007 Nobel Laureate, Steven Weinberg, pointed out that if they did exist then the Big Bang theory was doomed.. A multiverse universe is considered to be able to communicate information electromagnetically to our universes outer membrane. The ancient Greek ...

The second I walked in for the first time, I knew I was in good hands. I was greeted by the friendly smile of the woman at the front desk where she then showed me how to check in whenever I come. My mom and I met with Dr. P and he examined me and decided what would work the best for me personally. He was very straightforward with everything and always had a sense of humor. After starting treatment they were very exact with their instructions and everybody politely answered every question my mom and I may have had. It was incredible to see what Dr. Ps office is capable of and everything that goes into orthodontics and how much pride they all take in their work. I specifically went to Dr. P because of his reputation with Invisalign and I know I was getting the best care available and my results reflect that perfectly. Not only is Dr. P amazing, but so is his entire staff. The woman in charge of financing was very helpful and my mom always said how nice she was. Dr. Ps assistants are all so ...
Formations discovered in shallow water off the coast of the island of Zakynthos in the Ionian Sea were initially thought to be the remains of an ancient Greek city. However, there is a puzzling absence of artifacts such as ceramic sherds among what appear to be columns and paving stones to indicate that people had ever actually lived there. Now researchers have subjected these structures to a range of tests, and found that they are indeed extremely old, but they certainly werent made by the ancient Greeks.. The first few photographs I saw really did look as if they might be columns and paving slabs, says Julian Andrews, an environmental scientist at the University of East Anglia, but as I saw more images, it was clear they probably werent.. Based on carbon isotope analysis of a sample of the formations, Andrews and his colleagues determined that they were formed by microbes that use hydrocarbons seeping through the seafloor, most likely methane, as nourishment. These bacteria lived ...

Another study found in Handbook of Children and the Media reinforces these ideas, During the first years of life, children are developing social scripts and beliefs that will influence behavior throughout their lifetime. . . . Young children are . . . easily impressionable, have a more difficult time distinguishing between fantasy and reality, cannot easily discern motives for violence, [and] learn by observing and imitating (Bushman & Huesmann, 2001, p. 240). Observers as early as Plato, the classical Greek philosopher, also recognized the delicacy and absorbent nature of a childs brain: Children cannot distinguish between what is allegory and what isnt, and opinions formed at that age are usually difficult to eradicate or change; it is therefore of the utmost importance that the first stories they hear shall aim at producing the right moral effect (Turow, 2003, p. 54). Our nations media is far from producing the right moral effects for our worlds youth. The globalization of our ...

Visitors to Agrigento will be able to view one of the largest and best preserved collections of ancient Greek structures in the world. To the south of the ancient city, seven Doric temples, erected during the 5th and the 6th century, were located. Today, one of the better preserved is the one dedicated to the goddess Juno Lacinia: very likely, its good state of preservation is due to the fact it was later converted into a Christian church, hence used and cared for for a loger time.. Visitors can also see the amazingly intact Temple of Concordia. This temple, too, owes its better state of preservation to the presence of the proto-Christian community.. ...
The French name for dill- Aneth comes from the Greek word â Anethonâ meaning fennel. Fennel and Dill were both considered symbols of vitality and wealth in ancient Rome.. The Norse or Anglo-Saxon word â dylleâ or dilla is commonly presumed to be the origin of the modern English word dill. These words mean to soothe or lull,. This is a indication of the plants anti-flatulent properties.. The ancient Greeks also used dill. For them the herb was a symbol of wealth. Burning dill scented oil was a symbol of considerable ostentation. It also had more practical applications like Hippocrates recipe for mouthwash which advises using dill seeds macerated in white wine to rinse the mouth with and also to use it as a gargling solution. Greeks also considered dill a soporific. They advised covering insomniacs heads with dill leaves or sleeping with the herb under the pillow to deal with the disorder.. Dill was often used as a medium of exchange. The Talmud asked for the payment of taxes with dill ...

This book paints a flowing picture of the relationship beween life and nature, through the evolution of a word - physiology. Today, it denotes a scientific discipline at the intersection of biology and medicine, signifying the «study of life». Yet, physiology manifests a split personality in the course of history. It came down to us from the ancient Greeks, where it represented the «study of nature», or «natural philosophy» - the precursor of modern-day «science». Physiology originates from an older Greek root, physis - meaning «nature» itself - that stretches far back to the birth of Greek thought. How did this word generate two such disparate meanings? What does this word tell us, historically, about humankinds grasp of the essence of nature and the essence of life - and the interrelationship between the two? The author follows an etymological path into the distant past, in writing the biography of the word «physiology». The book delves into linguistic pre-history, in search of ...
