|Ethics||Taureck I 46
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.
B. H.F. Taureck
