F. M. Cornford
His work Thucydides Mythistoricus (1907) argued that the history of the Peloponnesian War was informed by a tragic view of its author, Thucydides. He is probably better known now for his Microcosmographia Academica (1908), the classic satire on the insider's view of academic politics. It is the source of a number of catchphrases, such as the doctrine of unripeness of time.
