Example text

Pliny’s achievement is a conceptualisation of knowledge that privileges information over theory, movable facts over abstract ideas. For Pliny, knowing about rerum natura is not dependent on discussing a particular theoretical or philosophical position, as Lucretius or Seneca would have it.  This vision of a nature that can be broken into sections and catalogued, fact by fact, name by name, item by item, until all of it is listed, represents a new idea about what it is to know about the nature of things.

As a pagan model of how to write a natural history, Pliny also had his uses for later scholars in search of alternatives to Christian theology as a principle of organisation. Theology was still    See Beagon, Roman Nature; French, ‘The Natural History of Pliny’; Wallace-Hadrill, ‘Pliny the Elder and Man’s Unnatural History’. On Pliny’s approach to sympathy and antipathy, see Patricia Gaillard-Seux, ‘Sympathie et antipathie dans l’ “Histoire Naturelle” de Pline’, in Rationnel et irrationnel dans la m´edecine ancienne et m´edi´evale: ´ aspects historiques, scientifiques et culturels, ed.

And so, I hope that readers, who disdain many of these tiny things, will not despise the things I have to say as boring, since nothing can seem extraneous to the contemplation of Nature. ) Pliny champions the smallest creatures as a source of microcosmic insights into nature and encourages the reader to persevere with his insistence that nothing is useless or off limits when it comes to the appreciation of nature. For Pliny, nature is present in tiny things, and each fact about them is necessary to the contemplation of nature.
