Histoire et Historiographie en Occident aux IVe et Ve Siecles - Variorum Collected Studies CS 577 (Hardback)Yves-Marie Duval (author)
Hardback Published: 24/07/1997
- Not available
Eleven articles in French focusing on the three areas of philosophy and historiography in late antiquity: questions surrounding time, whether time has direction; or an empire has a set period of time to exist; or if mankind has a purpose. Is time an illusion or does it progress ever onwards? Another aspect of the articles reflects the author's interest in the writing of history, particularly the stance the writer has chosen to take - such as whether it is optimistic or pessimistic about the period he is writing about. A final aspect looks at the period and region in which the writings occur - such as if it was written in a period of doubt, hope, or illusion.
