Qu’est-ce qu’une faith sans dieu exact, sans Église, sans clergé, sans dogme ni credo, sans promesse d’immortalité ? Brosser le tableau de los angeles faith civique des Grecs c’est, en s’efforçant de répondre à cette query, s’interroger sur le statut de los angeles croyance dans ce style de trade avec l’au-delà, sur les rapports du fidèle à ses dieux, sur l. a. position restreinte qu’occupe l’individu dans cette économie du sacré.Engagé dans les associations de los angeles cité, le religieux apparaît orienté vers l. a. vie terrestre : il vise à ménager aux citoyens une lifestyles pleinement humaine ici-bas, non à assurer leur salut dans l’autre monde.Ce que l. a. faith laisse en dehors de son champ et que des courants sectaires et marginaux prennent en cost, l. a. philosophie se l’appropriera : élaboration du thought de transcendance, réflexion sur l’âme, sa nature, son destin, recherche d’une union de soi et de dieu en purifiant l’âme de tout ce qui n’est pas en elle apparenté au divin.
