    DescriptionThis volume is the first comprehensive study of the content, form and goal of the Peripatetic historiography of science. The book first analyses similar trends in Presocratic, Sophistic and Platonic thought, and then focuses on Aristotle's student Eudemos of Rhodes. His work is the basis of the Peripatetic historiography of science which greatly contributed to the development of this genre in medieval Arabia and in Europe in the 16th-18th centuries.

    Review quote
    "On doit savoir gre a L. Z. d'avoir ainsi jete une vive lumiere sur un auteur assez mal connu, et sur l'execution, au sein du Lycee, d'un projet si ambitieux et d'une telle envergure."Germaine Aujac in: Anabases 10/2009 "The author demonstrates supirior knwledge of the modern literature in many fields."Frans Lisztlan in: Ancient Philosophy 29/2009 "Zhmud's reconstruction is the most comprehensive to date and will undoubtedly become the basis for all furture work on the subject."David E. Hahm in: Isis 1/2009 "In conclusione, si puo solo manifestare apprezzamento per il lavoro di Z.; l'abbondante messe di notizie e dati discussi ne fanno un utile strumento per gli studiosi di scienza greca, nei suoi aspetti storico-filosofici come pure strettamente filologici."Vito Lorusso in: Bryn Mawr Classical Review 5/2007 "Despite its specialized nature, anyone with a keen interest in the history of science in general will find in this book a most valuable material. A comprehensive bibliography and a useful index conclude the volume."Marco Beretta in: Nuncius 2/2007 "Z. has succeeded in his history of the history of science.Moreover, since it is impossible to do without discussing the science itself.Z's book may also recommended as a source of much up-to-date information on almost all the questions that vexed Greek scientists, including the Presocratics."David Side in: Journal of Hellenic Studies 127/2007
