Dégage les origines de la pensée grecque en brossant le tableau des mutations intellectuelles qui s'opèrent entre le XIIe siècle avant J.-C., qui correspond à l'effondrement des royaumes mycéniens, et le Ve siècle, moment de l'épanouissement d'Athènes
Myth and thought among the Greeks by Jean-Pierre Vernant( Book )

163 editions published between 1944 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 1,418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Jean-Pierre Vernant first published Myth and Thought among the Greeks in 1965, it transformed the field of ancient Greek scholarship, calling forth a new way to think about Greek myth and thought. In eighteen essays--three of which, along with a new preface, are translated into English for the first time--Vernant freed the subject of ancient Greece from its philological chains and reread the questions of "muthos" and "logos" within multifaced and transdisciplinary contexts--of religion, ritual, and art, philosophy, science, social and economic institutions, and historical psychology. A major contribution to both the humanities and the social sciences, Myth and Thought among the Greeks aims to come to terms with a single, essential question: How were individual persons in ancient Greece inseparable from a social and cultural environment of which they were simultaneously the creators and products? Seven themes organize this stellar work--from "Myth Structures" and "Mythic Aspects of Memory and Time" to "The Organization of Space," "Work and Technological Thought," and "Personal Identity and Religion." A master storyteller, an innovative, precise, and original thinker, Vernant continues to change the narratives we tell about the histories of civilizations and the histories of human beings in their individual and collective identities.--Publisher
Myth and society in ancient Greece by Jean-Pierre Vernant( Book )

43 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,047 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a stimulating and largely persuasive collection of essays on the interrelations between social institutions and mythical thinking in ancient Greek society. What is fundamental to the author's approach is a determination to see the meaning of Greek myth and of Greek social institutions in patterns of association and opposition, in the articulations of a system of ideas. It is in this sense that the term "structuralist" is accurately used of him, not in the sense of one who mechanically applies Lévi-Straussian procedures and categories to the Greek evidence.

The universe, the gods, and men : ancient Greek myths by Jean-Pierre Vernant( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 850 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this enchanting retelling of Greek myth, Jean-Pierre Vernant combines his deep knowledge of the subject with an original storytelling style. Beginning with the creation of Earth out of Chaos, Vernant continues with the castration of Uranus, the war between the Titans and the Olympic gods, the wily ruses of Prometheus and Zeus, and the creation of Pandora, the first woman. His narrative takes readers from the Trojan War to the voyage of Odysseus, from the story of Dionysus to the terrible destiny of Oedipus to Perseus's confrontation with the Gorgons." "Jean-Pierre Vernant has devoted himself to the study of Greek mythology. In recounting these tales, he unravels for us their multiple meanings and brings to life the beloved figures of legend whose narratives lie at the origin of our civilization. With remarkable psychological acuity, Vernant presents a picture of the world as the Greeks understood it. The relationship between the human and the divine - realms that have always been intimately connected - and their place within a world of potent natural forces are evoked effortlessly in a narrative that retains the magical quality of myth and reads with the compelling momentum of a good novel."--Jacket

Ancestor of the West : writing, reasoning, and religion in Mesopotamia, Elam, and Greece by Jean Bottéro( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and French and held by 603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this introduction to the ancient world, three leading French historians explore the emergence of rationality and writing: how it developed and how it is remarkably similar to our own tradition. We learn that the supposed twin pillars of Western civilization, Greece and the Bible, were hardly freestanding: they elaborated logical and religious structures that had developed much earlier in Mesopotamia. At the same time Ancestor of the West reminds us that these cultures were precursors of our own precisely because they possessed an intelligence that we still recognize. The ancients, even in their earliest writings, thought like us."--Jacket
