Sample text

The first is their desire to appropriate the authority and efficacy of poetic language and myth. The second is connected with their reservations about the expressive and representational qualities of language in general. Philosophy engages in a series of moves that demarcate myth, reject it, and then attempt to internalise a reworked version of it. Why should philosophy incorporate ‘false things like genuine ones’? If the rise of philosophy entailed the marginalisation of an entire poetic tradition and this led to more general worries about the correspondence of language and reality, it is possible that the philosophers may have found a way of encoding this worry in their discourse as Hesiod did not.

Theoretical issues cannot be sure that we are studying something real, rather than a rhetorical construction.  This is because the first and major culprits in the ‘creation of mythology’ are the Greek philosophers, starting with Xenophanes and ending with Plato. If these philosophers exclude an area of prior cultural tradition from serious consideration, and if that area is what we label ‘myth’, then clearly a concept of myth exists for them, irrespective of the real-world status of that concept.

Presocratics such as Herakleitos and Xenophanes share a discomfort over the capacities of language. Their rejection of the world of myth and poetic language by way of self-definition is founded on the inadequacy of that world and that language to represent the reality they perceive.
