About this book
Thucydides' History of the Peloponnesian War is considered in history and political science as a text of fundamental disciplinary relevance. However, neither discipline takes the other discipline into account during debates about Thucydides. Following Thucydides and Political Order: Concepts of Order and the History of the Peloponnesian War, this collection features scholarly work that asks what political order Thucydides envisioned, against which he might have judged the events he described. The contributors explore the role that Thucydides plays as a model theorist or representative of an ideal political order in philosophical traditions and schools of thought.
