From religion to philosophy : a study in the origins of western speculation by Francis Macdonald Cornford( Book )

Conford traces the remarkable burst of abstract speculation among pre-Socratic thinkers of the sixth century B.C. from the religious thought of the preceding era in Greece. Combining deep classical scholarship with anthropological and sociological insights, he examines the mythic precursors of enduring metaphysical concepts such as destiny, God, the soul, substance, nature, and immortality. His original and engaging explorations profile the rise of a new spirit of rational inquiry from traditional beliefs, demonstrating that philosophy's modes of clear definition and explicit statement were already implicit in the unreasoned intuitions of mythology

The origin of Attic comedy by Francis Macdonald Cornford( Book )
51 editions published between 1914 and 2013 in English and held by 1,315 libraries worldwide
The Origin of Attic Comedy was originally published in 1934. Its author, Francis Macdonald Cornford (1874-1943), was Laurence Professor of Ancient Philosophy and a fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge. Beginning with Aristotle's observation that from the earliest stage Attic Comedy had 'certain definite forms', Cornford shows that these forms are clearly observable in the plays of Aristophanes and that they derived from a ritual drama common to both tragedy and comedy. Cornford was surprised by his own conclusions and his enquiries led him far from his original view that Aristophanic Comedy was composed of loosely connected and foreign sources. Combining a close examination of the eleven extant plays of Aristophanes and a broad treatment of the relationship between tragedy and comedy, this book will continue to merit review as a robust study of the origins of ancient Greek comedy
