978-1-4632-0167-8Engraved on Stone
By Rony Feingold
(Gorgias Studies in the Ancient Near East 7)

Cylinder seals were important instruments in the Ancient Near East, and were used in Mesopotamia from the beginning of the third millennium BCE to the fifth century BCE. This volume presents an analysis of 1000 cylinder seals (including 70 that are not yet published) from the Old Babylonian period, including the Isin and Larsa dynasties, and uses this analysis as well as data from written texts of the period to answer questions relating to the seal cutters and the production of the seals.

By Adam E. Miglio
(Gorgias Studies in the Ancient Near East 8)

978-1-4632-0248-4Can No Physician Be Found?
Second Edition: By Laura Marie Zucconi
(Gorgias Studies in the Ancient Near East 6)

Can No Physician be Found analyzes how religion, as an expression of a universal order, is applied to the medical practices in the cultures of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and Israel. The comparative approach sheds light on how religious concepts shaped not only the particular medical identity of each society, but also how they can simultaneously participate in a broader medical culture spanning the ancient Near East.

978-1-4632-0146-3Facing an Empire
By Guido Guarducci
(Gorgias Studies in the Ancient Near East 1)

Recent archaeological discoveries within the Upper Tigris region in Southeastern Turkey offer a unique opportunity to understand the dynamics of the Assyrian Empire borderlands. Within a few years most of the region will be irreversibly submerged, due to the construction of the Ilisu dam, the biggest hydroelectric power plant project in Turkey. It is of paramount importance to understand and record as much data as possible about the local communities and the foreign connections that flowered in this area. More...

978-1-59333-985-2Homer and the Bronze Age
By Peter Karavites
(Gorgias Studies in the Ancient Near East 2)

Peter Karavites presents a revisionist overview of Homeric scholarship, whose purpose is to bridge the gap between the “positivist” and “negativist” theories dominant in the greater part of the twentieth century. His investigation derives new insights from Homer’s text and solves the age old question of the relationship between Homer and the Mycenaean age. More...

978-1-59333-369-0The Other Mathematics
By Leo Depuydt
(Gorgias Studies in the Ancient Near East 5)

This book is about attribute mathematics, in which nothing ever gets bigger or smaller. More specifically, it is about some of what attribute mathematics can do toward the full digitalization of thought and language. The matter is relevant not only directly to linguistics and philosophy but also indirectly to electrical engineering and neuroscience. The twenty-first century will be that of the brain. Human existence will gradually be turned inside out as tools such as genetics and Boolean algebra allow us to see ourselves function on the smallest scale while it is happening. More...
