(Original title: Why Did Theognis Not Leave Respect and Retribution in His “Hope Elegy”?)Filozofia, vol. 78 (2023), No 4, 245 - 258.
The aim of the essay is to give a detailed analysis of Theogins’ so-called Hope Elegy (ll. 1135 – 1150) which was considered an earlier fusion of Hesiod’s story of Pandora and the Myth of the races. The author first focuses on both Hesiod’s story to reveal the context and then turns to the elegy itself to answer why Theognis choose Elpis as the only good god… Read more

The aim of this paper is to examine Levinas’s and Derrida’s concept of metaphor. The paper compares their account on metaphor that shows well their position toward religion.

The… Read more
