citizens of Rome, have, in thy every department, thus made known thy praise. The Natural History is encyclopaedic in scope, but its format is unlike a modern encyclopaedia. A modern reader will not find dedicated articles on the natural history of the chameleon, the medical uses of cabbage, or the effects of goat's blood on diamond. But the deity in question was a goddess whose main purpose was to serve the human race: "nature, that is life" is human life in a natural landscape. After an initial survey of cosmology and geography, Pliny starts his treatment of animals with the human race, "for whose sake great Nature Air Jordan 11 Space Jam 2017 On Feet appears to have created all other things".

[11]The Natu.

Nature's variety and versatility were claimed to be infinite: "When I have observed nature she has always induced me to deem no statement about her incredible. "[9] This led Pliny to recount rumours of strange peoples on the edges of the world. [a] These monstrous races the Cynocephali or Dog Heads, the Sciapodae, whose single foot could act as a sunshade, the mouthless Astomi, who lived on scents were not strictly new. They had been mentioned by the Greek historian Herodotus in the 5th century BC, but Pliny made them better known. [10]"As full of variety as nature itself",[11] stated Pliny's nephew, Pliny the Younger, and this verdict largely explains the appeal of the Natural History since Pliny's death in the eruption of Vesuvius in AD 79. Pliny had gone to investigate the Nike Air Jordan 1

[6] This teleological view of nature was common in antiquity and is crucial to the understanding of the Natural History. [7] The components of nature are not just described in and for themselves, but also with a view to their role in human life. Pliny devotes a number of the books to plants, with a focus on their medicinal value; the books on minerals include descriptions of their uses in architecture, sculpture, painting and jewellery. If Pliny's premise seems remote from modern ecological theories, the result is a compendium of an entire culture. [8]Pliny's work frequently reflects Rome's imperial expansion which brought new and exciting things to the capital: exotic eastern spices, strange animals to be put on display or herded into the arena, even the alleged phoenix sent to the emperor Claudius in AD 47 although, as Pliny admits, this was generally acknowledged to be a fake. Pliny repeated Aristotle's maxim that Africa was always producing something new.

n the army. As for the nocturnal hours spent writing, these were seen, not as a loss of sleep, but as an addition to life: for, as he states in the preface, Vita vigilia est, "to be alive is to be watchful", in a military metaphor of a sentry keeping watch in the night. [2] Pliny claims to be the only Roman ever to have undertaken such a work, in his prayer for the blessing of the universal mother:[3]Hail to thee, Nature, thou parent of all Nike Air Jordan 3 Retro
