Creating justice and law through the juxtaposition of the representations of Odysseus and the suitors
University of Novi Sad, Faculty of Philosophy
Keywords: Homer; Odyssey; justice; law; inter-polis relations; Zeus; Hellenes; morality
Abstract
In the paper the author analyses Homer's specific representation of justice, primarily from the perspective of his Odyssey. In this epic we can identify an additional dimension of justice, beside the characteristics of equivalence and correlativity and the principle "might makes right" which were mentioned in the previous essay, and that is its implied application in inter-polis relations. In addition, we should add the special position that belongs to Zeus, through whom the Hellenes should comprehend that justice is necessary for the resolution of their conflicts. As the highest representative of justice in general, Zeus punishes those whose acts are not in compliance with justice, which, in the end, tells the Achaeans that they should establish a community founded on justice - the polis.
