Masters of Truth in Archaic Greece


In archaic Greece, three figures - the diviner, the bard and the king - all shared the privilege of dispensing truth by virtue of the religious power of divine memory. Beginning with this definition of the pre-rational meaning of truth, Detienne examines the conceptual and historical contexts for a notion of truth which still influences modern Western philosophy.
