Richard Seaford is Emeritus Professor of Ancient Greek at the University of Exeter. He is the author of numerous papers and books on ancient Greek texts from Homer to the New Testament, among which are Money and the Early Greek Mind: Homer, Philosophy, Tragedy (Cambridge, 2004) and Cosmology and the Polis: The Social Construction of Space and Time in the Tragedies of Aeschylus (Cambridge, 2012). He has a particular interest in uncovering the relationship between the economy, ritual, philosophy, and drama. He is currently completing a historical comparison of early Greek with early Indian thought.
