Hellenistic astrology is a tradition of horoscopic astrology that was practiced in the Mediterranean region from approximately the first century BCE until the seventh century CE. It is the source of many of the modern traditions of astrology that still flourish around the world today, although it is only recently that many of the surviving texts of this tradition have become available again for astrologers to study. Hellenistic Astrology: The Study of Fate and Fortune is one of the first comprehensive surveys of this tradition in modern times. The book covers the history, philosophy, and techniques of ancient astrology, with a special focus on demonstrating how many of the fundamental concepts underlying the practice of western astrology originated during the Hellenistic period.

The theorem of Pythagoras, Euclid's "Elements", Archimedes' method to find the volume of a sphere: all parts of the invaluable legacy of ancient mathematics. But ancient mathematics was also about counting and measuring, surveying land and attributing mystical significance to the number six. This volume offers the first accessible survey of the discipline in all its variety and diversity of practices. The period covered ranges from the fifth century BC to the sixth century AD, with the focus on the Mediterranean region. Topics include: * mathematics and politics in classical Greece * the formation of mathematical traditions * the self-image of mathematicians in the Graeco-Roman period * mathematics and Christianity * and the use of the mathematical past in late antiquity.

Neugebauer collected all horoscopes from this material, and added a few unpublished pieces to this volume which was originally printed in 1959.

At once the most comprehensive and detailed history of ancient astronomy undertaken. From Meton of Athens in the fifth century B.C. and the unnamed scribes of Babylon, through Hipparchus and Ptolemy, to the shadowy figures of Olympiodorus and Stephanus in the early period of the Byzantine Empire, from primitive shadow tables and calendars of star phases, through Babylonian ephemerides and the Almagest, to the odd fragments preserved in late astrologers, the entire panorama of astronomy is set forth.

This classic sourcebook, which has for two decades helped thousands rethink their views of ethics and human sexuality, is all new and totally revised for the challenges of a new century. Featuring essays on adultery, monogamy, perversion, homosexuality, pederasty, sex without love, sexual equality and more, Philosophy and Sex retains its uniqueness and accessibility without compromising quality and versatility. Though the book is completely reconceptualized, the editors have retained the best of the existing volume (essays by Shulamith Firestone, Judith Jarvis Thomson, and others) while offering many new selections, including Michel Foucault, postmodern feminists, recent work on same-sex marriage, nonconsensual sex (date rape), and much more.
