Four Conceptions of the Heroic. Four Conceptions of the Heroic by Vera Norman Adapted from a presentation given at the February 2003 FORum.
The characteristics of the hero have changed over time: today’s hero doesn’t much resemble the Homeric heroes of the Iliad and the Odyssey like Achilles, or of Sophocle’s Antigone, or even the later Roman heroes of Virgil’s Aeneid whose protagonist, Aeneas, manipulates the beautiful Queen Dido to take advantage of her in such a way we moderns would find reprehensible and totally unprincipled. Heroes: What They Do & Why We Need Them. By Scott T.
Allison and George R. Goethals In Part 1 of this series, we introduced the concept of the Heroic Leadership Dynamic, which we define as a system of psychological forces that can explain how humans are drawn to hero stories, how they benefit from these stories, and how the stories help people become heroes themselves. We suspect that early humans first told hero stories at the end of the day, in the darkness, huddled around fires. These narratives supplied meaning, hope, and a welcome escape from the miseries of life. We propose that people benefit from hero stories in at least two essential ways. Theologian Richard Rohr argues that hero stories encourage people to think transrationally about ideas that seem to defy rational analysis.
Hero stories reveal truths and life patterns that our limited minds have trouble understanding using our best logic or rational thought.
