Paideia at Play: Learning and Wit in Apuleius

Book

Author: Werner Riess (ed.)

ISBN-13: 9789077922415

Publication year: 2008

The idea of education and learning (paideia) was central to ancient Greek thought.  The Latin orator and author Apuleius of Madauros adapted the Greek concept of paideia and conveyed it to a Latin audience in his main works, the only extant Latin court speech of the Roman Empire (the Apology) and the only Latin novel that is completely preserved, the Metamorphoses. The contributors to this volume have undertaken the task of discerning the specific forms of paideia and its varying functions in both works.
