The relationship between ‘science(/philosophy)’ and the authority of the great archaic poets, Homer above all, is clearly testified by the sources for all the phases of Greek civilization. This relationship develops along two main distinct and autonomous (but somehow complementary) lines, which we will refer here metaphorically as ‘way there’ (science [discusses  or] ‘uses’ Homer) and ‘way back’ (Homeric scholarship ‘uses’ science), without any indication of chronological priority and with pure reference to the two opposite perspectives they represent. These dynamics, both equally originated by the cultural prestige associated with Homer, will be presented through the discussion of some very representative cases.


Homer, sciences, scientific divulgation/instruction, (Homeric) scholarship.
