Item description for Apollonius of Perga's Conica: Text, Context, Subtext (Mnemosyne, Bibliotheca Classica Batava Supplementum) by Michael N. Fried...

This volume takes a look at one of the greatest works of Hellenistic mathematics, Apollonius of Perga's "Conica". It provides an alternative to H.G. Zeuthen's "Die Lehre von den Kegelschnitten im Altertum". The central part of the volume contains a historically sensitive analysis and interpretation of the entire "Conica", both from the standpoint of its individual books and of the text as a whole. Particular attention is given to Books V-VII. Two chapters in the volume concern histioriographic issues connected with the "Conica" in paricular and Greek mathematics in general.
