Empedocles' theology
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (897,29 kB)

Drozdek, Adam

According to Empedocles, the universe is an evolving system made out of four elements molded by love and strife. In this universe, love and strife have no moral connotations. They are cosmic forces. Love is a force that aims at uniting elements, strife at separating them. The interplay between love and strife is kept in check by harmony. The particular way harmony manifests itself in the world is a law of proportions. The laws of harmony do not exist by themselves; they find their seat in the divine Mind, the divine Phren , and as such they are an attribute of God. Empedocles' God evolves over time. He is a mutable God who evolves from the Phren that permeates the entire sphere, to the Phren that recedes to the outermost sphere of the universe to control it from afar. God the holy Phren is most happy when indwelling the sphere. All other stages of world history are, from God's perspective, a necessary evil. God is not concerned about our world. Empedocles' God is not the God of love; he uses love to attain his goal. This world is just a stepping stone for achieving the stage of the sphere.


Sobre los géneros literarios en la literatura griega
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (1,18 MB)

Riu, Xavier

This study is a preliminar approach to a broader investigation into the literary systems in ancient Greek literature. Its aim is to reach a more precise picture than we currently have of the changes between them. Previous to that, we need some theoretical foundations on the way in which such systems may be described. This is what the first and second parts of the present study will try to do; in the remaining, I will start looking for the criteria that permit articulation of the genre system in Plato and Aristotle (the first authors who deal with relationships between genres), in order to see to which extent such criteria match what we can know of the archaic and (at least partially) classical systems.


'Quandoque bonus dormitat Homerus'. Errores y falsedad en algunos autores griegos
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (1,08 MB)

Macía Aparicio, Luis M.

In the works of certain Greek authors one may find, more or less visible, mistakes, negligences and incoherences. In some other occasions, what those authors intend to express and what they really offer seem to be contradictory; both faults, either being willing or not, attempt against the beauty of the works and against the credibility of their content. The aim of this essay is both to offer examples of this kind, and to proceed to a critical analysis, an appraisal and an explanation of the issue.


Terminología musical en Eurípides: los géneros poético-musicales
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (658,03 kB)

Pérez Cartagena, Francisco Javier

The author tries to prove that the musical terminology in Euripides' drama and the introduction in it of some new terms shows the changes of meaning in the most ancient terms. This analysis strenghtens Euripides' image as a musician advocate of the changes that took place in the music of his time.

Artículo alojado en InterClassica (1,04 MB)

Paco Serrano, Diana de

In the present work, we outline a profile of Clytemnestra and Agamemnon, through their history in the Greek-Latin tragedy, in order to analyse the characterization of both characters. Therefore, we take into account both their behaviour within the tragedies and the perspective from which they are presented by the rest of characters and the chorus.

Metáfora, metonimia y...
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (1,11 MB)

Ballester Gómez, Xaverio

The Polish linguist M. Kruszewski, a contemporary of Saussure, made a distinction between two basic factors in the life of a language, that is to say, two prevailing kinds of associations: similarity and contiguity. The idea was popularized in the western countries by R. Jacobson, who applied this dichotomy in his studies on Poetics by convincingly arguing that metaphor and metonymy were the rhetoric outcomes of similarity and contiguity respectively, and therefore providing a twofold basic approach to poetry. In this paper, we attempt to show that in order to understand the grammar of poetry, besides poetic illusion (metaphor) and poetic allusion (metonymy), we need at least a third and, maybe, most powerful and efficient factor, namely the elusion (ellipsis).

Cicerón, epigrama 1 Soubiran: cuestiones de atribución e interpretación histórica y lingüística
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (749,50 kB)

Morelli, Alfredo M.

This epigram and the other two extant ones ascribed to Cicero can be seen as representative of the typical Roman epigrammatic taste in the age of the late Republic. Mittere in the first verse is to be interpreted as a technical term used in land-surveying: 'to draw (or to mark) the boundary line, to delimit'. The whole epigram would indicate a derisive metatio of the small estate of Vetto, whose extent can be covered by a sling throw, if not even an unsuccessfid one, as the stone falls from the sling-pouch and lands by the slinger's feet. Like the other two, this epigram can also be attributed to Cicero, although some doubts still remain, concerning prosody of final short -o of Vetto (not attested, but not impossible in the age of Cicero) and especially a couple of idiomatic peculiarities which are found also in Ovid.


El diálogo intertextual en Propercio 4.9
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (932,54 kB)

Schniebs, Alicia

In this paper we analyze Propertius' elegy 4.9 starting from the dialogue that this text establishes with other literary texts and with the Hellenistic-Augustan metatext. We postulate that the poet through a procedure of deconstruction and construction presents a Callimachean-Propertian Hercules who acknowledges the aesthetic principles stated in the first programmatic poem of the collection.

Claudio Ptolomeo y los modos musicales griegos
Artículo alojado en InterClassica (1.006,69 kB)

Redondo Reyes, Pedro

One of the most difficult and important topic in greek harmonics is the musical scale. In the last authors as Cleonides the scales are intended as "tonality", but the alexandrian astronomer Claudius Ptolemy designed a modal system. The thirteen aristoxenian scales are reduced to the ancient seven octave species, since the first aim of Ptolemy's Harmonics is the correspondence of musical theory with instrumental practice.

Libros venenosos ayer y hoy

Barrios Castro, María José

This study, framed into literature of rare books, has the purpose of studying how and in what way poisonous books reflect not only the existence of an unwritten culture, based on the experience and transmitted in an oral way, but a different way of culture appears, ensuing from study, whis has committed itself to those topics.A good number of those books have false believes that nowardays nobobody accepts. Nevertheless those believes are in the culture an oral tradition of a lot of countries. This work is developed from three different viewpoints and demonstrates that the most productive concept is that in which the poison is an author's resource in order to develop the plot.
