By Hugh Lloyd-Jones

"Lloyd-Jones right here considers, in its basic personality, the outlook of early Greek faith from the Homeric poems to the top of the 5th century, via and research of what he is taking to be its principal constituent, the concept that of Dike. The "justice of Zeus" seems to be issues, the 1st uncomplicated, the second one subsidiary: (1) anything like normal legislations or "the divinely appointed order of the universe," an order no longer regularly or perhaps often open to human scrutiny, and (2) ethical legislations, a concession to the insignificant creatures of an afternoon that males are, wherein Zeus "punishes, past due or quickly, a guy who has performed injustice to a different, both in his personal individual or in that of his descendants."  simply because Lloyd-Jones sees the 1st and uncomplicated thought of Dike because the prerequisite of the later rational hypothesis to which it led (smoothly and with no violent discontinuities, as he claims), his publication assumes the scale of Kulturgeschichte Griechenlands, and turns into the newest in a small yet wonderful record of works with equally wide scope . . ."
