    DescriptionArthur W. H. Adkins's writings have sparked debates among a wide range of scholars over the nature of ancient Greek ethics and its relevance to modern times. The essays in this volume show how leading classicists, philosophers, legal theorists, and scholars of religion have incorporated Adkins' thought into their own diverse research. The subjects addressed by the contributors include the relation between literature and moral understanding, moral and nonmoral values, and the contemporary meaning of ancient Greek ethics. The volume also includes an essay from the late Adkins himself illustrating his methodology in an analysis of the "Speech of Lysias" in Plato's "Phaedrus".
