Poisis and poetry in Homer and the Sophists. [Spanish]
The philosophical thought introduced by the works of the Presocratics, in particular that of Heraclitus and Xenofanes, formulates some considerations about poetic creation that disagrees with conceptions that believe the latter is the fruit of an inspiring activity of a divinity. From these conceptions a dispute (pálaia diáphora) begins to take shape which shows the dissimilar and opposed paths that tread the knowledge of the poet and the knowledge of the philosopher. Philosophy affirms since then a different and new form of thought wherein lies the essence of the problem of the science of knowledge without the inspiring power of the divinity.
