Greek Writers and Philosophers in Philo and Josephus. A Study of Their Secular Education and Educational Ideals
(Studies in Philo of Alexandria, Volume 9) Leiden; Brill, 2019.
The Finnish scholar Erkki Koskenniemi is having a new book on Philo (and Josephus) published this year.
The contents are given thus: Preface
1 Introduction 1 The Task of the Study 2 A Brief History of the Research 3 The Outline of Graeco-Roman Education 4 A More Precise Definition of the Task
2 Philo: Offspring from Sarah and Hagar 1 Introduction 2 Philo and Greek Writers 3 Philo’s Educational Ideals and His Own Witness 4 Jews and the Secular Education in Alexandria 5 Conclusion
3 Josephus: It Is Difficult to Transplant an Old Tree 1 Introduction 2 Josephus and Greek Writers 3 Greek Language and Classical Education in Jerusalem 4 Josephus’ Own Witness and the Quality of His Greek 5 Conclusion
I think it will be interesting to see what he writes about ‘Education,’ his contribution in Reading Philo, on ‘Philo and Classical Education’ has been very well received in several reviews of that book. I presume he will elaborate on this article in his new book.
