The origins of Greek thought by Jean-Pierre Vernant( Book )

133 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,670 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 society in ancient Greece by Jean-Pierre Vernant( Book )

104 editions published between 1974 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,534 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 )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 753 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

Myth and thought among the Greeks by Jean-Pierre Vernant( Book )

11 editions published between 1983 and 2006 in English and held by 542 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

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

12 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 519 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

5 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Mort, les morts dans les sociétés anciennes by Gherardo Gnoli( Book )

29 editions published between 1982 and 1990 in 5 languages and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Étudier les divers aspects de la relation entre mythe et pensée chez les Grecs, de la période archaïque (Homère et Hésiode) à la période hellénistique, en s'efforçant d'éclairer à la fois les continuités et les ruptures au plan des interprétations et de l' "usage" du mythe, tel est l'objet de cet ouvrage. Les essais qui le composent, extraits des travaux de Louis Gernet, Jean-Pierre Vernant, Pierre Vidal-Naquet et Marcel Detienne (les trois derniers étroitement unis par leur dette commune à l'égard du premier et leurs enseignements parallèles à l'École des Hautes Études depuis plus de dix ans), témoignent tous, à l'exception de celui de Louis Gernet, de la volonté des auteurs de réconcilier les conceptions anciennes, issues pour l'essentiel de Durkheim et de ses élèves, avec le structuralisme tel qu'élaboré par Lévi-Strauss. Vu l'énormité du champ, quatre grands domaines ont été choisis : le mythe comme révélateur de la cohérence interne de l'idée que se faisaient les Grecs du divin ; le mythe comme producteur de sens pour l'ensemble de la culture grecque, pour autant qu'il combine en lui des motifs venus des domaines les plus divers de l'existence ; le rapport entre le mythe et certains secteurs mal assurés de la vie sociale, tels que la valeur de certains objets ou les changements de statut des individus ; enfin, le mythe comme donneur de "formes" dans lesquelles enfreindre les règles, à la fois pour confirmer la norme et pour échapper, symboliquement et réellement, aux lois et aux signifiés sociaux dominants. Ce livre s'adresse à tous ceux qui, quelle que soit leur discipline, s'intéressent au mythe et à la société antique
