bookshelves: archaeology, history, anthropology

Historical study, by two specialists of French Historical Psychology school. A detailed analysis of the innovations made by Cleisthenes the Athenian in the archaic and classic Athens. The so important Cleisthenes's reformes are examined throught a new perspective, a new light shedded on them. In the social and political life of Cleisthenes's Athens the parameters of science, philosophy and Art play for first time so much important roles, as for producing civilization, and of course, democracy.
They are mainly structuralistic approaches, which reduce sociology to geometry and geography.
