Entre démocratie et oligarchie Les enjeux politiques de la définition du dèmos à Athènes au ve siècle.

Abstract : The Athenian discourse on the people (dèmos) is closely associated with the discourse on democracy, both because of their etymological link and because the image of the people which the political speech conveys constantly interacts with the judgment on the functioning and value of democracy. Actually, if, in Greek language, dèmos is but a term among others to indicate “people”, it is around this word that focuses a debate which crosses all the political thought: democrats and oligarchs offer a strongly contrasted image of people in Athens. From Herodotus to Thucydides and from Aristophanes to Pseudo-Xenophon it is possible to see the beginnings of a debate on the notion of “people” which, through Plato and Aristotle, still finds echoes in the contemporary period.
