Aristotle: How Ancient Wisdom Can Change Your Life
Professor Edith Hall in the Classics Department at King's College London.
Her original specialism was ancient Greek literature, but she enjoys putting the pleasure as well as the rigour into all aspects of ancient Greek and Roman history, society, and thought.
She has published more than 20 books, broadcasts frequently on radio and television, works as consultant with professional theatres, lectures all over the world, and publishes widely in academic and mainstream journals and newspapers.
She is a world leader in the study of ethnicity, class and gender in ancient sources, of ancient theatre, and of the continuing instrumentality of ancient ideas in world culture since the Renaissance.
