Fear of Diversity: The Birth of Political Science in Ancient Greek Thought

By Arlene W. Saxonhouse

This wide-ranging publication locates the beginning of political technology within the daily global of historic Greek existence, suggestion, and tradition. Arlene Saxonhouse contends that the Greeks, faced by way of the confusing variety of the actual international, sought a strength that will unify, constrain, and clarify it. This force towards solidarity did greater than price the brain over the senses: it led the Greeks to minimize the very actual complexities—particularly concerning ladies, the kin, and sexuality—in either their political and private lives.

Saxonhouse opens up clean understandings of such matters because the Greeks' worry of the female and their makes an attempt to disregard the calls for that gender, copy, and the kin necessarily make at the individual.
