Dr Rebecca Flemming explores the ideas and debates about human generation that emerged in the classical Greek world. How was the process of making new human beings conceptualised and described by ancient medical writers? What roles did men and women have in these theories? How was family resemblance explained? In what ways did the new anatomical investigations in Hellenistic Alexandria change understandings?
