Jean Pierre-Vernant and Pierre Vidal-Naquet are leaders in a
contemporary French classical scholarship that has produced a a
stunning reconfiguration of Greek thought and literature. In this
work, published here as a single volume, the authors present a
disturbing and decidedly non-classical reading of Greek tragedy
that insists on its radical discontinuity with our own outlook and
with our social, aesthetic, and psychological categories.
Originally published in French in two volumes, this new
single-volume edition includes revised essays from volume one and
is the first English translation of both volumes.Pierre
Vidal-Naquet is Director of Studies and Professor of Sociology at
the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes in Paris. Jean Pierre-Vernant
is Professor Emeritus of Comparative Study of Ancient Religions at
the College de France. Janet Lloyd is a translator and writer
living in England. Distributed for Zone Books."
