The Masters of Truth in Archaic Greece

Marcel Detienne, "The Masters of Truth in Archaic Greece"
English | ISBN: 0942299868, 094229985X | 1996 | 232 pages | PDF | 79 MB

The acclaimed French classicist Marcel Detienne's first book traces the odyssey of "truth," aletheia, from mytho-religious concept to philosophical thought in archaic Greece. Detienne begins by examining how truth in Greek literature first emerges as an enigma. He then looks at the movement from a religious to a secular thinking about truth in the speech of the sophists and orators. His study culminates with an original interpretation of Parmenides' poem on Being.
