L’autochtonie, la cité et les origines humaines : d’un discours politique à un discours cosmologique

Abstract : Ancient Greek myths referring to autochthony were hardly considered outside the political point of view although another understanding of such representations is possible – from a cosmological point of view. The historian of religions and society must take hold of this subject in order to reflect about its original feature. Compared with the cosmology of the Pre-Socratics, autochthony myths belong to an archaic world view in which the idea of polis acquires a fully cosmological sense and that of mankind another consistency.
