This chapter examines Gilles Deleuze's thoughts about the problem related to the origin of philosophy in Greece. It describes the difficulty and the problem that Deleuze encounters when he discusses the birth of philosophy and attempts to circumscribe a political attitude that is qualified as being arrogant towards democracy rather than anti-democratic. It analyses Jean-Pierre Vernant's Les origines de la pensée grecque and evaluates the role of democracy in the history of philosophy.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, philosophy, Greece, political attitude, anti-democratic, Jean-Pierre Vernant, Les origines de la pensée grecque, democracy, history of philosophy
