It explores how the Presocratic natural philosophers and early Hippocratic medical writers developed theories which drew from wider investigations into physiology and psychology, the natural world and the self, while also engaging with wider literary depictions and established cultural beliefs.
attention is devoted from the outset to sleep and dreams in Homer and the mythic tradition, as well as to depictions across lyric, drama and historiography.

Introduction; 1. Sleep and Dreams in Context; 2. Sleep, Dreams, and Heraclitus; 3. Sleep, Dreams, and the Body; 4. Sleep, Dreams, and the Soul; 5. Interpretation of Dreams; Conclusion

"[Holton's] decision to look at the physiological and psychological dimensions of sleep alongside dreams adds a new dimension to discussions of Greek dreaming. The practical organization of this book and the range of passages that it discusses guarantee that anyone interested in Greek dreams and their interpretations will return to it again and again. Holton's attempt to trace the origins and development of Greek ideas about dreams before Plato, Aristotle, and Artemidorus has produced a clear, useful map for future explorers of the Greek dream-world. It remains true, I think, that Aristotle is the first Greek author to advance a comprehensive and physiological theory of sleeping and dreaming, but Holton shows that a rich tradition of speculation on these topics existed more than a century earlier." - Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Ein Kopierschutz bzw. Digital Rights Management wird bei diesem E-Book nicht eingesetzt.
