Nomos/Sophists/Taureck: such a concept of nomos as that of Heraclitus, in which the nomoi, the concrete political principles of universal reason, which are subordinate to the logos, are no longer known by the Sophists. In their time, the nomos is based on convention.
Three meanings next to each other:
Sophocles (~ 496 - 416), Antigone: the meanings conflict with one another:
1. As a traditional order ("laws of the country")
2. Mere giving statutes (bids of Creons)
3. Unwritten, unchangeable laws of the gods (according to Heraclitus)._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number. The corresponding books are indicated on the right hand side. ((s)…): Comment by the sender of the contribution.
