This 2006 examine examines how the traditional Greeks made up our minds questions of justice as a key to figuring out the intersection of our ethical and political lives. Combining modern political philosophy with ancient, literary and philosophical texts, it examines a sequence of exceptional people who played 'scripts' of justice in early Iron Age, archaic and classical Greece. From the sooner sessions, those contain Homer's Achilles and Odysseus as heroic people who also are prototypical voters, and Solon the lawgiver, writing the scripts of statute legislation and the jury trial. In democratic Athens, the point of interest turns to dialogues among a citizen's ethical autonomy and political legal responsibility in Aeschyleon tragedy, Pericles' citizenship paradigm, Antiphon's sophistic concept and forensic oratory, the political management of Alcibiades and Socrates' ethical individualism.
