In the first new interpretation of Hellenistic and Roman education for fifty years, Teresa Morgan draws on evidence from all over the classical world, including papyri from Graeco-Roman Egypt, to reexamine one of the institutions that made that world an entity, and that was one of its most influential legacies to the West. She introduces fresh interpretations of the function of literature, grammar and rhetoric in education, and in addition explores Hellenistic and Roman theories of cognitive development.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. This book offers an assessment of the content, structures and significance of education in Greek and Roman society. Drawing on a wide range of evidence, including the first systematic comparison of literary sources with the papyri from Graeco-Roman Egypt, Teresa Morgan shows how education developed from a loose repertoire of practices in classical Greece into a coherent system spanning the Hellenistic and Roman worlds. She examines the teaching of literature, grammar and rhetoric across a range of social groups and proposes a model of how the system was able both to maintain its coherence and to accommodate pupils widely different backgrounds, needs and expectations. In addition Dr Morgan explores Hellenistic and Roman theories of cognitive development, showing how educationalists claimed to turn the raw material of humanity into good citizens and leaders of society.
