Abstract


According to Xenofon's Socrates, Justice is lawfulness. Laws set forth lawfulness. There are written and unwritten laws. The former are man-made, and the later, divine. The worship to gods and the interdiction of incest are exarnples of unwritten laws. Committing incest violates an unwritten law concerning what ancient greeks calledakmé, that is law- enforceability in obseivingkaironomy. This one shows itself through: 1) the equivalence between the greek words akmé and kairós; 2) Socrates' teaching of passing away in the adequate time; 3) a semantic review of the spurious platonic definitions on kairós; and 4) a reappraisal of ancient rhetorical descriptions of Lyssipus' Kairós statue.
