Allegory or The Triumph of Truth (1598), Alte Pinakothek, Munich

'Justice' has come to the aid of a lion, symbol of imperial power, to protect naked 'Truth' against 'Deception', personified by a bearded man who is already unmasked and thwarted. Only when 'Honesty' reigns - so this painting admonishes - can 'Peace', 'Prosperity' and 'Fertility' flourish throughout the land: A political allegory and characteristic example of the courtly art of the time”. [source]


What follows are some of my personal opinions.

What are the ethical rules?

The ethical rules, literary, could be considered as being a kind of an “operating manual” (a manual usually accompanying a technical device and explaining how to install or operate it, e.g. here) of our human kind.

The rules which are included within an “operating manual” do not oblige the operator to follow them. Instead, they constitute a description of what is going to happen both, when the operator freely chooses to follow them, as well as, if he freely chooses not to follow them.


Likewise, the ethical rules are constituted by a detailed description of the boundary between normality and catastrophe.

Within the one side of the boundary, the choices made are compatible with the nature of things; while, at the other side of the boundary, there is defying of the nature of things.

It might be useful to examine a related example from the ancient Greek mythology:

 

Twelve-Olympians.jpg

 

According to the ancient Greek religion, there were the Twelve Olympians: The Twelve Olympians, also known as the Dodekatheon (Greek: Δωδεκάθεον,δώδεκα, dōdeka, "twelve"+ θεοί, theoi, "gods"), were the principal deities of the Greek pantheon, residing atop a mythical Mount Olympus. The Olympians gained their supremacy in a war of gods in which Zeus led his siblings to victory over the Titans. [wiki]

Jupiter-Smyrna.jpg

 

The leader among the Twelve Olympians was Zeus: (Ancient Greek: Ζεύς, Zeús; Modern Greek: Δίας, Días; English pronunciation /ˈzjuːs/ or /ˈzuːs/) is the "Father of Gods and men" (πατὴρ ἀνδρῶν τε θεῶν τε, patḕr andrōn te theōn te) who rules the Olympians of Mount Olympus as a father rules the family according to the ancient Greek religion. He is the god of sky and thunder in Greek mythology. Zeus is etymologically cognate with and, under Hellenic influence, became particularly closely identified with Roman Jupiter.
Zeus is the child of Cronus and Rhea, and the youngest of his siblings. In most traditions he is married to Hera, although, at the oracle of Dodona, his consort is Dione: according to the Iliad, he is the father of Aphrodite by Dione. He is known for his erotic escapades. These resulted in many godly and heroic offspring, including Athena, Apollo and Artemis, Hermes, Persephone (by Demeter), Dionysus, Perseus, Heracles, Helen of Troy, Minos, and the Muses (by Mnemosyne); by Hera, he is usually said to have fathered Ares, Hebe and Hephaestus. [wiki]

 

Gigantomachia.jpg

Gigantomachy

The most important divine struggle in Greek mythology was the Gigantomachy, the battle fought between the Giants and the Olympian gods for supremacy of the cosmos. It is primarily for this battle that the Giants are known.
The references to the Gigantomachy in archaic sources are sparse. Neither Homer nor Hesiod mention anything about the Giants battling the gods. Homer's remark that Eurymedon "brought destruction on his froward people" might possibly be a reference to the Gigantomachy and Hesiod's remark that Heracles performed a "great work among the immortals" is probably a reference to Heracles' crucial role in the gods victory over the Giants. The Hesiodic Catalogue of Women (or the Ehoia) refers to Heracles having slain "presumptious Giants". And another probable reference to the Gigantomachy in the Catalogue has Zeus produce Heracles to be "a protector against ruin for gods and men". [wiki]


For correctly interpreting the meaning of the ancient Greek mythology, one, has to take into account that this mythology constitutes a detailed and indirect description of the “nature of things”, namely, a description of the “forces within mind”.

Within Gigantomachy, we see the mighty “Gods” were saved by the mortals. And also, within the rest of the ancient Greek mythology we see many occasions were mortals were saved by Gods. None of them are absolutely self-sufficient and by acknowledging and simultaneously respecting this absolute boundary, they both manage to exist.

According to the Greek mythology the ultimate stupidity is identified by the choice to go against the “nature of things” (against the “forces of mind”).

The alternate choice, instead of stupidity's, is choosing to follow the path of Ariadne's thread towards thruth, justice, excellence and kindness in order to produce the consequences of peace, freedom, friendship and frugal prosperity.

Probably, many people may disagree with the above conclusions. But they might change their opinion if both, they study the history of our human kind, as well as, they try to drain some of the wisdom, of the German painter Hans von Aachen, which has been embedded within his wonderful painting “The Triumph of Truth” (1598).


Note 1:

Hans von Aachen (1552 – March 4, 1615), was a German mannerist painter.

He was born in Cologne, but his name is derived from the birthplace of his father, Aachen in Germany. Other variations of the name include Johann von - and - von Achen and various concisions like Janachen, Fanachen, Abak, Jean Dac, Aquano, van Aken etc.

Hans von Aachen began painting in Germany as a pupil of the Flemish master E. Jerrigh. He then, like many northern artists of his time, such as Bartholomeus Spranger spent a long period in Italy. He lived in Venice from 1574 to 1588 and toured Florence and Rome during that period. He initially became a pupil of Kaspar Rems, but soon decided to develop his own mannerist technique, by studying Tintoretto and Michelangelo's followers. However, during all of his life he was influenced by the style of Bartholomeus Spranger and Hendrick Goltzius who dominated the art scene in Germany at the time.

He returned to Germany in 1588 where he became well known as a painter of portraits for noble houses. He also produced historical and religious scenes and earned a wide reputation. Among his patrons were the Fugger family. He painted several works for Duke William V of Bavaria. He married Regina, the daughter of the composer Orlando di Lasso in Munich. In Munich he came into contact with the Imperial Court in Prague. In 1592 he was appointed official painter of Rudolph II, Holy Roman Emperor. However, Von Aachen only moved to Prague years later (there is contention as to the date - 1601 or 1597), where he stayed and was commissioned to paint mythological and allegorical subjects such as his Liberation of Hungary (1598, Budapest). Emperor Rudolph II conferred knighthood on him in 1605. Von Aachen continued working on commissions under the newly appointed ruler, Matthias I. He died in Prague.

Amongst van Aachen's pupils were Peter Isaak and Joseph Heinz. His works have been copied by Wolfgang Kilian, Dominicus Custos and Jan Sadeler. [wiki]
