La bataille de Pylos : 425 av. J.C.- Athènes contre Sparte by Philippe Lafargue( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"En 425 avant J.-C., Athènes, contre, toute attente, remporte à Pylos (Péloponnèse) une victoire décisive sur Sparte. Cette bataille devient, chez les Athéniens, l'enjeu d'un débat sur la guerre, l'impérialisme et la démocratie. Elle ajoute à la popularité d'un personnage singulier de la vie politique athénienne : le démagogue Cléon, détesté par Aristophane, Aristote, Plutarque et presque toute la postérité. Philippe Lafargue fait d'abord revivre au plus près une bataille qui marque l'évolution des techniques de combat à la fin du Nie siècle avant J.-C. On comprend alors mieux ce qui se joue chez les contemporains de l'exceptionnel événement, à commencer par Thucydide. Acteur malheureux des affrontements sans cesse repris entre les deux cités, et finalement remportés par Sparte en 404 avant J.-C., il s'en fera l'historien avec La guerre du Péloponnèse, livre fondateur de la science historique. La bataille de Pylos montre ainsi comment l'écriture de l'histoire et l'invention de l'événement sont indissociables du politique et d'une réflexion sur la démocratie."--Page 4 de la couverture
Cléon : le guerrier d'Athéna by Philippe Lafargue( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A re-evaluation of the political work of Cleon, the Athenian political leader during the first years of the Peloponnesian War. Contemporary writers like Thucydides or Aristophanes portrayed Cleon as a corrupt, venal demagogue and warmonger. This book, however, attempts to leave aside ideological and moral bias and reconstruct Cleon's historical context, allowing him to be considered in a more positive light: as a leader whose political goals hardly differed from Pericles'

Cléon le guerrier d'Athéna by Philippe Lafargue( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study is dedicated to Cleon, the demagogue who held the political scene of Athens after Pericles's death, during the first years of the Peloponnesian War (between 429 and 422 B.C). To use an expression that has largely spread over since the 1970's and that is now under discussion, around this 'new politician', who did not belong to the traditional spheres - aristocracy - from which many political men came in the fifth century, was established a real 'black legend' which went through the ages. Contemporary authorities like Thucydides or Aristophanes and also later writers introduced him as a corrupt, venal and coarse character, as a demagogue who skilfully flattered the people and who was in favour of an immoderate imperialism and out-all war. This study intends to re-evaluate Cleon's political work, especially in the sight of his renowned predecessor, Pericles, whose ambitions hardly differed: upholding of the empire - and not extension of it -, reinforcement of democratic rights settled during the former period - and not political 'intensification' -, continuation of the war according to Pericles's strategy and aims - and not exaggerated warmongering -. In this study, the ideological and moral bias, often led by ancient sources, has been given up and the specific context of Athens which was involved in a terrible war to protect its imperial and democratic integrity, at the end of the fifth century B.C., allows us to consider Cleon as a less dark historic character than what tradition passed on

Dossier: Soigner par les lettres : la bibliothérapie des Anciens by Claude Calame( )

1 edition published in 2017 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Dossier : Il est bien connu que les textes et leur méditation sont une thérapie pour l'âme. Dans l'Antiquité, les médecins grecs et romains ont même considéré la lecture, la déclamation ou la création poétique comme des remèdes pour soigner les maladies du corps. Ce dossier de Mètis explore l'aspect paradoxal de ces conceptions anciennes qui lient la santé du corps à des activités littéraires et présupposent une physiologie de la lecture et de l'écriture. Il questionne cette forme de « bibliothérapie » cultivée par l'élite dans le monde gréco-romain, à travers les exemples de l'épistolographie (Cicéron), de la rhétorique (Aelius Théon, Aelius Aristide) et de la médecine (Aristote, Antylle, Oribase). Le dossier cartographie ces pratiques et conceptions de l'Antiquité pour nourrir les réflexions contemporaines sur la bibliothérapie, les potentialités perdues du littéraire ou la médecine holistique. Varia : Éléments de rituels (le chien guérisseur, les oiseaux migrants, le pais amphitalês, la supplication chez Euripide), effets d'intertextualité (Platon, Varron), questions d'historiographie aux lisières de la philosophie et de l'histoire des religions. It is well known that texts and the meditation on texts are a therapy for the soul. In Antiquity, Greek and Roman doctors even considered reading, declaming or creating poetry as remedies for healing the body. This dossier of Mètis explores the paradoxical aspect of these ancient conceptions that link the body's health to literary activities and presuppose a physiology of reading and writing. It questions that form of « bibliotherapy » cultivated by the elite in the Greek and Roman world through the examples of epistolography (Cicero), rhetoric (Aelius Theon, Aelius Aristides) and medicine (Aristotle, Antyllus, Oribasius). The dossier maps these practices and conceptions of Antiquity in order to enrich contemporary reflexions on bibliotherapy, on the lost potentialities of the literary, or on holistic medicine
