  Classicism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Classicism is usually contrasted with romanticism; the art of classicism typically seeks to be formal, restrained, and Apollonian (nothing in excess) rather than Dionysiac (excess), in Friedrich Nietzsche's opposition.
Unity of action meant that the play should be constructed around a single 'plot-line', such as a tragic love affair or a conflict between honour and duty.
Classicists did not approve of Shakespeare, who constantly broke these rules.

 Classics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Symmetrically, in China's cultural sphere of influence, the character 經 (jing in pinyin) refers to a set of texts written during Chinese antiquity and the study of the language, literature, history and philosophy of ancient China, mostly through this corpus of Chinese classical texts, can be described as studying classics.
Copleston, an Oxford classicist said that classical education "communicates to the mind...a high sense of honour, a disdain of death in a good cause, (and) a passionate devotion to the welfare of one's country".
Cicero commented, "All literature, all philosophical treatises, all the voices of antiquity are full of examples for imitation, which would all lie unseen in darkness without the light of literature".

Third, there is Classicist probability, which assigns probabilities based on the quantification of all the equally likely possible outcomes that can happen (i.e., the outcome space).
Classicist probability, on the other hand, emerged from the rationalist tradition, which argued that knowledge is a rediscovery of universal truths.
Classicist reasoning practices, on the other hand, require representations of the outcome space such as ordered lists, tables, probability trees and area models.

 Victorian Classicism: Artists and their Works
The Classicists were closely associated with the Pre-Raphaelites, many artists being influenced by both styles to some degree.
Both movements were highly romantic and were inspired by similar historical and mythological themes -- the key distinction being that the Classicists epitomized the rigid Academic standards of painting, while the Pre-Raphaelites were initially formed as a rebellion against those same standards.
Frederick Leighton and Lawrence Alma-Tadema were the leading Classicists, and in their lifetimes were considered by many to be the finest painters of their generation.

 DP S1999M: What's Your Point?
Classicists don't mind draws and are the most likely of all player types to accept them as a natural conclusion to a game.
Classicists are often unwilling to accept levels of risk that other players are willing to endure to recapture a chance at winning or reduce the size of a draw.
The Classicist who does not prosper in a game is likely to react to this failure by adoption of the "Survivalist" playing style, which is the "squat in the corner" behavior that drives the other player stylists to distraction.

 Reflections from a "Casual Classicist"   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Classicists, even causal ones, have always had a tendency to be eccentric and introverted, which led to a widespread belief that the subject was arcane and marginal.
Having labored in despairing obscurity for many years, classicists are learning to use their formidable wit to give them a competitive advantage.
Classical studies happens to be one of my obsessions, even though I am, at best, only a 'casual classicist.' Parenthetically, my wife instructed me to tell you that she also took Latin but that she has decided not to become obsessed with it.

 Amsterdam Heritage - Dutch Classicism
The fact that this small group of people dominated the Amsterdam scene, both economically and culturally as well as politically, is clearly demonstrated by the fact that Jacob van Campen was hired to build the new town hall (now Royal Palace 1648-1665) in the Dam Square.
However, the new town hall was not the first Classicist building that arose in Amsterdam.
In many cases the future owners of the premises could not afford to hire a big name and had their facades designed by the contractors who were responsible for the actual building of the houses.

 Revisioning Natural Law: From the Classicist Paradigm to Emergent Probability - Questia Online Library
For seven or eight semesters now I have taught an introduction to Roman Catholic ethics to undergraduates, a course in which we cover the sources from which ethical positions are derived, including natural law.
If all of the created order were governed by classical laws (as presumed in the classicist worldview), natural moral law would involve determining how not to disrupt the given one-to-one causality.
In other words, beside the distinction between the two strains of natural-law tradition, and cutting across it, is the historical shift from a classicist worldview to historical consciousness.

 Abstract - Autonomy, Implementation and Cognitive Architecture: A Reply to Fodor and Pylyshyn   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
This diagnosis is born out in Fodor and Pylyshyn's discussion of the `lures' of Connectionism which are typically taken to challenge the Classicist position.
However, we argue, in detail, that the Classicist has yet to adequately meet this challenge, in practice.
Moreover, we adduce arguments concerning the nature of non-demonstrative inference, especially default reasoning, which strongly suggest that the Classicist's task is impossible, in principle.

 Mike Jameson, pioneering classicist, dead of cancer at 79
After moving to the United States to attend college, Jameson earned a bachelor’s degree in Greek from the University of Chicago in 1942, when he was 17.
Shortly before graduating, Jameson met his wife, Virginia, also a classicist, in a class on the Greek historian Thucydides.
The first birthday gift he presented to his future wife was his translation of a play by Euripides, said his son, Anthony Jameson, a principal researcher at the German Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Saarbrücken.

WALTHAM, MA--Summer 1992: It began with a whisper in the bowels of the library at the American Academy in Rome.
Roman scholar, Nicholas Horsfall noticed Brandeis classicist, Ann Olga Koloski-Ostrow browsing in the stacks and summoned her: "Latrines," he whispered.
For Koloski-Ostrow, teacher of Latin, ancient literature, Greek and Roman art and archaeology at Brandeis for the past 15 years, a study of latrines seemed a logical extension of her earlier work.
