Description:
G.E.R. Lloyd's wide-ranging and historical study of the development of Greek science is a valuable contribution to current debates in the philosophy of language, on the analysis of scientific revolutions, and the rationality of science. The author succeeds in distilling from the mass of evidence and scholarly debate a lucid account of his subject which is presented in an uncluttered and well-paced text.
