Achilles and Agamemnon

Lecture no. 2 from the course: Famous Greeks

Achilles and Agamemnon

Taught by Professor J. Rufus Fears | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

No book on leadership could offer a better example than the conflict before the walls of Troy between Achilles and Agamemnon (c. 1250 B.C.). As Greek commander-in-chief, Agamemnon is in over his head. Excelling in the virtues he lacks is Achilles, "best of the Achaeans." Homer's genius will transform their power struggle into a timeless lesson in the moral dimension of politics.
