    Care Ethics, Bruno Latour, and the Anthropocene.Michael Flower & Maurice Hamington - 2022 - Philosophies 7 (2):31.
    Bruno Latour is one of the founding figures in social network theory and a broadly influential systems thinker. Although his work has always been relational, little scholarship has engaged the relational morality, ontology, and epistemology of feminist care ethics with Latour’s actor–network theory. This article is intended as a translation and a prompt to spur further interactions. Latour’s recent publications, in particular, have focused on the new climate regime of the Anthropocene. Care theorists are just beginning to address posthuman approaches (...)

    Neuromaturation of the Human Fetus.Michael J. Flower - 1985 - Journal of Medicine and Philosophy 10 (3):237-252.
    The fetal human possesses an active central nervous system from at least the eighth week of development. Until mid-gestation the most significant center of activity is the brainstem. By the end of the first trimester, it appears that the brainstem could be acting as a rudimentary modulator of sensory information and motor activity. What importance ought to be attached to such regulatory activity is uncertain. Some argue that it represents a level of integrated activity sufficient to bolster an argument for (...)

    IG II 2.2344 and the Size of Phratries in Classical Athens.Michael A. Flower - 1985 - Classical Quarterly 35 (1):232-235.
    Little is known about phratries in ancient Athens. The few surviving pieces of evidence, both literary and epigraphical, do not provide an adequate basis for a convincing reconstruction of most details. It may be possible, however, to say something more about the number and size, even if not about the organization and function, of phratries in the fifth and fourth centuries b.c.The purpose of this note is to show how IG II2.2344 is relevant to the question of phratries. It is (...)

    Simonides, Ephorus, and Herodotus on the Battle of Thermopylae.Michael A. Flower - 1998 - Classical Quarterly 48 (02):365-379.
    In adapting the story of the Great War to the taste of his own age Ephoros, himself a pupil of Isokrates and a professional historian, was led astray by the combined influences of rhetoric and rationalism; as neither the rationalism nor the rhetoric was of the best quality, the intrusion of both at this stage could have inflicted irreparable damage on the tradition of the war if the text of Herodotus had not survived to refute the inventions grafted on the (...)

  6. The Cambridge Companion to Xenophon.Michael A. Flower (ed.) - 2016 - Cambridge University Press.
    This Companion, the first dedicated to the philosopher and historian Xenophon of Athens, gives readers a sense of why he has held such a prominent place in literary and political culture from antiquity to the present and has been a favourite author of individuals as diverse as Machiavelli, Thomas Jefferson, and Leo Tolstoy. It also sets out the major problems and issues that are at stake in the study of his writings, while simultaneously pointing the way forward to newer methodologies, (...)

    Care Ethics in the Age of Precarity.Maurice Hamington & Michael A. Flower (eds.) - 2021 - Minneapolis, MN: University of Minnesota Press.
    How care can resist the stifling force of the neoliberal paradigm In a world brimming with tremendous wealth and resources, too many are suffering the oppression of precarious existences--and with no adequate relief from free market-driven institutions. Care Ethics in the Age of Precarity assembles an international group of interdisciplinary scholars to explore the question of care theory as a response to market-driven capitalism, addressing the relationship of three of the most compelling social and political subjects today: care, precarity, and (...)

    From Simonides to Isocrates: The Fifth-Century Origins of Fourth-Century Panhellenism.Michael A. Flower - 2000 - Classical Antiquity 19 (1):65-101.
    This article attempts to gather the evidence for panhellenism in the fifth century B.C. and to trace its development both as a political program and as a popular ideology. Panhellenism is here defined as the idea that the various Greek city-states could solve their political disputes and simultaneously enrich themselves by uniting in common cause and conquering all or part of the Persian empire. An attempt is made to trace the evidence for panhellenism throughout the fifth century by combining different (...)

    Agesilaus of Sparta and the Origins of the Ruler Cult.Michael A. Flower - 1988 - Classical Quarterly 38 (1):123-134.
    Plutarch, in hisApophthegmata Laconica, records that the Thasians made an offer of divine honours to king Agesilaus, and that Agesilaus ostentatiously refused them. In the past, most scholars who have had occasion to comment on this anecdote have not doubted the veracity either of the report or of the language in which it is expressed. The situation, however, has now reversed itself. The currentcommunis opiniois the contention of Chr. Habicht that the story is an invention of the Hellenistic or early (...)
