In my reading yesterday, I came across a reference to a theory, proposed by Snell and then Adkins, who sees the Homeric heroes, as a professor of mine once said, as 'Moral Martians' who do not see themselves as moral agents at all in the modern sense. From what I understand from anthropology, there is a strong case that different cultures can vary remarkably in respect to how the individual thinks of themselves as a moral agent. I am not involved in Homeric studies, but I am curious what the 'state of the question' may now be.
