Seth Benardete's study of the Iliad, which initiated his scholarly career, bears the hallmarks of the unique turn of mind that characterized all his later work.

Yet he seems to have been aware of the fundamental problems from early on that he wrestled with explicitly when he returned to Homer some forty years later: the question of the relations a… Подробнее

What if the bizarre chain of events and coincidences she has pieced together means -- as with the court of King Arthur -… Подробнее
