Masters of Truth in Archaic Greece by Marcel Detienne
Book Descriptionforeword by Pierre Vidal-Naquet The acclaimed French classicist Marcel Detienne's first book traces the odyssey of "truth," aletheia, from mytho-religious concept to philosophical thought in archaic Greece. Detienne begins by examining how truth in Greek literature first emerges as an enigma. He then looks at the movement from a religious to a secular thinking about truth in the speech of the sophists and orators. His study culminates with an original interpretation of Parmenides' poem on Being.

Comparative Anthropology of Ancient Greece, Paperback (August 2009)
Looks at the anthropology of the Greeks and other cultures across space and time, and in the process discovers aspects of the art of comparability. This book tries to see how cultural systems react not just to a touchstone category, but also to the questions and concepts that arise from the reaction.
Greeks and Us, Paperback (July 2007)
The human race is all too pre-disposed to think in terms of us and them. Europeans have always laid claim to the Ancient Greeks they are our Greeks, our ancestors but their legacy reaches further than we could ever imagine. Their influence stretches from the Japanese to the Cossacks, from Ancient Rome to Indonesia.
Gardens of Adonis, Paperback (April 1994)View all books by Marcel Detienne
Recasts various ideas about the fertility myth of Adonis. This book challenges Sir James Frazer's thesis that the vegetation god Adonis represented the annual cycle of growth and decay in agriculture. It uses the analytic tools of structuralism and shows instead that the festivals of Adonis depict a seductive but impotent and fruitless deity.
