Ethics/Hesiod/Eon/Taureck: Hesiod is three generations later than Homer. He offers a completely different model:
Descending eon: The present, in which the club law prevails, is the worst.
Moral World Order: Zeus sees all the people's doing and rewards or punishes.
Hesiod: while animals devour other animals, it is only the human who knows the notion of right.
Wickedness can easily be attained, virtue only through labor.
New in Hesiod is a moral god._____________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.
