The Perfect Storm - October release?

Post by Matthew Longhorn » July 23rd, 2020, 4:28 pm

I know this isn’t one that many are going to get excited about, due to the discussion moving on from that at the conference that spawned this book. That said, Amazon have just listed an October release date for the volume looking at Fanning, Campbell, and Porter’s views on the perfect tense

From the Amazon blurb:
Nowhere are the chaotic debates surrounding contemporary aspect theory more heated than in discussions of the theory's application to Hellenistic Greek, and especially its understanding of the semantics of the Greek perfect tense.
I haven't been hearing heated and chaotic debates about the perfect lately. Am I just missing out? What are the current debates about the perfect outside the Porter / Campbell schools?

There aren't really any.

But the contents of this book are from a 2013(?) SBL session. Unless they've done a substantial amount of leg work before going to press, they're all out of date.
