Agricultural Literature in Eurasia circa 200 BCE – 1500 CE
Abstract: Agricultural literature is one of the most important and
oldest non-fictions genres in the world. This text gives us the first
overview of extant agricultural treatises in Eurasia before c. 1500. With
this overview, it is possible to give a better foundation to discussions on
the role of knowledge. This literature also gives us indications about the
importance of agriculture in different periods for a number of regions in
Eurasia. An important part is discussion on method. The goal is to arrive
at comparable numbers – to form the basis for analyze.
