1 Vidal-Naquet, Pierre; Szegedy-Maszak, Andrew (Tr. ) THE BLACK HUNTER Forms of Thought and Forms of Society in the Greek World
The Johns Hopkins University Press 1986 0801832519 / 9780801832512 Hardcover Very Good+ in Very Good dust jacket 
Dustjacket has edgewear with chipping and a few closed tears. Minor discoloration to cloth. ; With a foreword by Bernard Knox. ; 392 pages; The black hunter travels through the mountains and forests of Greek mythology, living on the frontier of the city-state, of adulthood, of class, of ethics, of sexuality. Taking its title from this figure, The Black Hunter approaches the Greek world from its margins and charts the elaborate system of oppositions that pervaded Greek culture and society: cultivated and wild, citizen and foreigner, real and imaginary, god and man. Organizing his discussions around four principle themes -- space and time; youth and warriors; women, slaves, and artisans; and the city of vision and of reality -- Pierre Vidal-Naquet focuses on the congruence of the textual and the actual, on the patterns that link literary, philosophical, and historical works with such social activities as war, slavery, education, and commemoration. The Black Hunter probes the interplay of world view, language, and social practice "to bring into dialogue that which does not naturally communicate according to the usual criteria of historical judgement.
