Classification from Antiquity to Modern Times

Sources, Methods, and Theories from an Interdisciplinary Perspective

Edited by: Tanja Pommerening and Walter Bisang

The volume presents phenomena of classification and categorisation in ancient and modern cultures and provides an overview of how cultural practices and cognitive systems interact when individuals or larger groups conceptually organize their world. Scientists of antiquity studies, anthropologists, linguists etc. will find methods to reconstruct early concepts of men and nature from a synchronic and diachronic comparative perspective.
