Discovering generation in Ancient Greece

Wednesday 13 March: 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Museum of Classical Archaeology, Room G.19, Sidgwick Avenue, CB3 9DA

Dr Rebecca Flemming explores the ideas and debates about human generation that emerged in the classical Greek world. How was the process of making new human beings conceptualised and described by ancient medical writers? What roles did men and women have in these theories? How was family resemblance explained? In what ways did the new anatomical investigations in Hellenistic Alexandria change understandings?
