Certo, la giustizia è importante: ma fino a che punto riesce a imporsi e valere? Il racconto dell’Iliade insegna che le persone troppo spesso ritengono la scorciatoia della forza piú appetibile della strada della giustizia, nella convinzione – erronea ma umana – che la prevaricazione sia piú semplice e piú vantaggiosa. Qual è la forza coercitiva della giustizia, allora? Come fare a convincere gli uomini a seguire la strada piú lunga? Perché rispettare la giustizia, quando sembra che una soluzione piú vantaggiosa possa essere guadagnata con un’azione di forza?

Schein 1984, p. 1 arriva addirittura a parlare, non senza ragioni, di «meditazione ironica». 31. Cfr. Parry 1956; Whitman 1958; Schein 1984, pp. 89-167 e Redfield 1975, pp. 3-29 e 99-127. 32.

Il primo verso dell’Iliade celebra l’ira (μῆνις) di Achille.

La giustizia viene introdotta come alternativa alla forza, come un tentativo molto pragmatico di evitare il ricorso alla forza (che a volte funziona, come nel caso dello scudo e a volte no, come nel caso di Nestore). Tra le pieghe dell’Iliade affiora dunque una prima riflessione sulla giustizia. Piú concretamente, ed è un punto la cui importanza si chiarirà piú avanti, la giustizia consiste in un processo di negoziazione: è un compromesso concreto, un accordo che risolve un conflitto o una divergenza, non la rivendicazione di un principio assoluto14.
