Sample text

34 Categories such as areté (virtue) and agathós (the good man) referred to the effective and useful individual who enjoyed success, and had nothing to do with any rejection of fraud. Odysseus’ ability to lie with great astuteness received unconditional praise as an integral part of his wisdom. Though interior motives and feelings began to be subject to examination, men were not to be judged on the basis of their good or evil conscience, but only on the basis of facts. And the facts were decided by the gods, or, in the longer view, by the destinies which the gods also had to obey.

The authority of Zeus himself over the gods and men is often in fact non-existent. Menelaus vigorously denounces this fact to the king of Olympus, declaring that no punishment seems to be destined to the Trojans who, after stealing his wife and his treasures, have also given proof of hýbris42 in their conduct during the war. The behavior of the gods in the Odyssey is considerably different and begins to show aspects of equity and almost of providence. Odysseus can count on the protection of Athena and on an incipient concern for justice on the part of Zeus himself.

This eastern attitude of renunciation with respect to the transformation of the world is found not only in systems that are ruled by providential deities, but also, and even perhaps more fittingly, in others where the deities are indifferent, or even entirely absent. There were no gods, for example, in the original form of Buddhism, and many western thinkers have therefore called it a philosophy rather than a religion. The ideal of conduct imparted by the Buddha resembles many of the prescriptions found in Yoga: withdrawal and detachment from the circumstances of the world, since they embody no more than illusion.
