Abstract

Maasiana & Callimachea comprende una scelta di 44 articoli da Lehnus congiuntamente dedicati alla storia degli studi classici – e alle figure di Paul Maas (1880-1964) e di Ulrich von Wilamowitz-Moellendorff (1848-1931) in particolare – e alla trasmissione delle opere di Callimaco. Il volume raccoglie in forma corretta e aggiornata la maggior parte delle ricerche che Lehnus ha rivolto al restauro di frammenti callimachei e all’edizione di contributi marginali di Maas (ma anche di Wilamowitz, Diels, Lobel, Pfeiffer e altri) di interesse callimacheo o pindarico. Per questa via esso si affianca, integrandola, alla raccolta di Incontri con la filologia del passato dallo stesso autore pubblicata nel 2012 presso Dedalo.

Abstract

Like the ancient inquiries into the nature of things, contemporary continental realism and materialism, from Deleuze to the Speculative Realists, embraces a commitment to investigate beings, without subordinating it to analyses of language, consciousness, texts or the social.This pensée brute, traditionally known as metaphysics, dares to question the one and the many, the potential and the actual, the material and immaterial and the world itself. This apparent kinship is not merely thematic, since contemporary thinkers explicitly and repeatedly return to the texts and figures of the Greco-Roman world. In this volume, leading philosophers address these varied, volatile, and novel interactions and themselves contribute to reconceiving and redeploying the problems of ancient metaphysics. Alongside this are 2 original and previously unpublished translations of essays by Gilles Deleuze and Pierre Aubenque.

Abstract

The rebirth of Ancient Greek in Europe was promoted by Humanist education and ideas to such an extent that we can consider the Greek language as a formative element of Humanist culture. Next to Latin, the default common language, a Humanist has to know and use Greek, because he is not, cannot and will not be a barbarian: barbaros ou pelomai, as Julius Caesar Scaliger claimed in his verses in 1600. Wreaths (stephanoi) have been the symbols of the cult of Muses from ancient times. After the love for Greek Muses had been revived by Renaissance Humanist poets and scholars, it has remained with us both in poetic activity and in scholarship. The Hellenostephanos volume presents a collection of papers by scholars who study Humanist Greek, aspiring towards another revival of Hellenism, and trying to avoid being barbarians. The volume includes papers by Christian Gastgeber, Gita Bērziņa, Janika Päll, Charalampos Minaoglou, Erkki Sironen, Kaspar Kolk, Tua Korhonen, Johanna Akujärvi, Bartosz Awianowicz, Jean-Marie Flamand, Walther Ludwig, Alessandra Lukinovich, Martin Steinrück, Tomas Veteikis, Grigory Vorobyev, Vlado Rezar, Pieta van Beek, and Antoine Haaker.

Abstract

The volume presents the concluding architectural and structural research on this early Hellenistic tomb of a Diadochus, a monumental two-story construction with innovative design of building structure, façades and a peristasis, enclosing an unused courtyard. Pure proportions determined the modularly composed design, having been brought to perfection by numerous optical refinements. Innovative developments of construction techniques such as the utilisation of grout mortar indicate the forthcoming era and so do the new formal developments in the design of this mausoleum having grown out of late classical tradition.
