Fragmentation and Unity

(p.197) Conclusions

Daniele Miano

Oxford University Press

The conclusions further develop the arguments made in the specific chapters of this book, and make an evaluation of the methodology followed throughout the monograph. It is argued that a conceptual approach to Fortuna allows a balanced account of the fragmentation of the evidence, but at the same time this same conceptual approach is able to identify long-term continuities of meaning and moments of conflict as well as sudden semantic change. These changing meanings reflect claims developed by social agents within concrete historical contexts, such as the Roman conquest of the Empire and the civil wars of the late Republic.
