142 Eck, Bernard LA MORT ROUGE Homicide, Guerre Et Souillure En Grèce Ancienne
Les Belles Lettres 2012 2251326820 / 9782251326825 Softcover Fine in Near Fine dust jacket 
Softcover is fine with very light shelfwear to DJ. ; Collection D'Études Anciennes 145. Série Grecque; 448 pages; Tuer quelqu'un, ou l'absolue transgression : l'Antiquité grecque, une fois de plus, nous parle. > Le parricide Oreste subit les assauts des impitoyables Érinyes. Dans la plaine de Troie, Achille et Hector, tueurs héroïques, sont portés par un instinct de mort qui a nom Arès. Aux rives de la mer Noire, vers 400 avant J. -C. , les rescapés de l'armée des Dix Mille prennent part à une mystérieuse cérémonie de purification. Ailleurs, l'orateur Antiphon agite une étrange croyance : la souillure de l'homicide se répandrait partout, le fantôme de la victime criant vengeance. Et, dans un coin de la Sicile, la magie de rituels curieux chasserait les démons du meurtre. L'Athènes démocratique, inventive, n'est pas en reste ; ici, elle laisse s'exiler l'assassin, s'il le veut, avant même la fin de son procès ; là, elle promulgue une loi encourageant l'assassinat de quelque apprenti tyran qui menacerait son existence. Mais Aristote met en garde : l'homicide constitue en toute circonstance, sans exception, une faute. > Littérature, histoire, droit, philosophie, anthropologie contribuent à cette étude approfondie des représentations, lato sensu, de la mort violente chez les Grecs. Le tableau d'ensemble est, pourrait-on dire, versicolore. Versicolores, aussi, les paroles ailées de l'immortel Homère, pour l'instant fatal où le guerrier s'effondre : > "La mort rouge et le puissant destin se sont emparés de ses yeux". Versicolores, aussi, les paroles ailées de l'immortel Homère, pour l'instant fatal où le guerrier s'effondre : > "La mort rouge et le puissant destin se sont emparés de ses yeux".

146 Ehrenreich, Barbara BLOOD RITES Origins and History of the Passions of War
Holt Paperbacks 1998 0805057870 / 9780805057874 Paperback Very Good 
Scholar's name to ffep (Robert Brown). Minor creasing to spine. Light shelfwear. ; In Blood Rites, Barbara Ehrenreich confronts the mystery of the human attraction to violence: What draws our species to war and even makes us see it as a kind of sacred undertaking? Blood Rites takes us on an original journey from the elaborate human sacrifices of the ancient world to the carnage and holocaust of twentieth-century "total war." Sifting through the fragile records of prehistory, Ehrenreich discovers the wellspring of war in an unexpected place--not in a "killer instinct" unique to the males of our species but in the blood rites early humans performed to reenact their terrifying experience of predation by stronger carnivores. Brilliant in conception, rich in scope, Blood Rites is a monumental work that will transform our understanding of the greatest single threat to human life. ; 304 pages
