When considering the question of what makes us human, the ancient Greeks provided numerous suggestions. This book argues that the defining criterion in the Hellenic world, however, was the most obvious one: speech. It explores how it was the capacity for authoritative speech which was held to separate humans from other animals, gods from humans, men from women, Greeks from non-Greeks, citizens from slaves, and the mundane from the heroic. John Heath illustrates how Homer's epics trace the development of immature young men into adults managing speech in entirely human ways and how in Aeschylus' Oresteia only human speech can disentangle man, beast, and god. Plato's Dialogues are shown to reveal the consequences of Socratically imposed silence. With its examination of the Greek focus on speech, animalization, and status, this book offers new readings of key texts and provides significant insights into the Greek approach to understanding our world.

Descrizione del libro:

This book explores the link between speech, humanity, and status in ancient Greek thought. It offers new readings of the Iliad, Odyssey, Oresteia and Plato's Dialogues to argue that speech and the ability to speak were instrumental in the ancient Greeks' approach to understanding our world.

Descrizione libro Cambridge University Press. Paperback. Condizione: New. 404 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.1in.What drove the ancient Greeks to explore human nature and invent Western politics This book argues that the Greeks believed speech made humans different from other animals. But, this zoological comparison also provided the metaphorical means for viewing those lacking authoritative speech--women, barbarians, and slaves, etc. --as bestial. This link between speech, humanity, and status is revealed through close study of both Homeric epics, classical Athenian culture, Aeschylus Oresteia, and Platos Dialogues. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Codice articolo 9780521117784
