Beschreibung

This book illuminates the distinctive character of our modern understanding of the basis and value of free speech by contrasting it with the very different form of free speech that was practiced by the ancient Athenians in their democratic regime. Free speech in ancient democracy was not a protected right but an expression of the freedom from hierarchy, reverence and shame. That freedom was challenged by the harmful consequences of its rejection of shame which had served as a cohesive force within the polity.
