THE GREEKS AND THE IRRATIONAL
ook review by Anthony Campbell. Copyright © Anthony Campbell (2000).
What was the mentality of the ancient Greeks like? How did it differ from ours? Have we received a distorted idea of the Greeks from generations of modern classical scholars? And what is the significance of these questions for our own society? These are the topics that Dodds addresses in this book, published half a century ago but still possessing relevance for us today.
The book begins at the deepest, most archaic layer of the Greek mind that we have access to, the Iliad.
