4 WOODHEAD, A. Geoffrey Martin Classical Lectures, volume 24 THUCYDIDES Thucydides on the Nautre of Power. in dj.
Harvard University Press, Cambridge, MA, 1970, 
WOODHEAD, A. Geoffrey. Thucydides on the Nautre of Power . Cambridge, MA: published for Oberlin College by Harvard University Press, 1970. Pp. (2),[i]-xii,[1]-222,(2). 8vo, navy blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. MartinClassical Lectures, volume XXIV. "The implications of Thucydides' hostilit y to full democracy have long been avoided by scholars. In this provocativestudy A. Geoffrey Woodhead confronts and examines in detail this aspect of Thucydides' thought. He also explicates his controversial interpretation o f Thucydiudes' view of nature of power: that equally among states and individuals the impulse toward power follows its own laws, which are not immoralbut amoral, and which should be viewed for themselves without ethical or e motional confusion. Analyzing the evolution of this view, Mr. Woodhead examines Thucydides' observations on the origins and progress of the great war of 431-404 B.C. between Athens and Sparta. He then discusses the relation of the principle of power to Athenian democrats and aristocrats, to the prominent Athenian Alcibiades, to the Athenians' adversaries in Sparta, and to the Great Power on the sidelines (Persia). In his final chapter the author considers the attitude toward power of the man in the street, an attitude that Thucydides portrayed but to which he did not subscribe." - from the dj.Vg in spine- and top-edge-sunned dj. 50.00
