Dionysus, myth and cult by Walter Friedrich Otto( Book )
61 editions published between 1933 and 1997 in 5 languages and held by 1,418 libraries worldwide
"Who is Dionysus? The god of ecstasy and terror, of wildness and of the most blessed deliverance, and the mad god whose appearance sends mankind into madness. In this classic study of the myth and cult of Dionysus, Walter F. Otto recreates the theological world of ancient Greek religion. Otto's provocative starting point is to accept the immanent reality of the gods. To understand the cult of Dionysus, it is necessary to reimagine the original vision of the god. Otto challenges us to understand the power of this vision not as a bloodless abstraction but as a force animating belief, to see the myth and art of Dionysus as a passionate search to regain the power of the lost gof."--Back cover

On the study methods of our time by Giambattista Vico( Book )

Ecrit en 1709, ce texte est en fait un discours prononcé par G. Vico, qui enseigne la rhétorique. Il oppose l'enseignement humaniste à l'enseignement moderne qui s'impose en Europe suite aux thèses de Descartes sur la méthode de connaissances reposant sur la raison déductive. Un parallèle peut être fait avec la culture moderne, la crainte actuelle d'une évolution vers la barbarie de la réflexion
