Title: El devenir de la tiranía Griega (VIII-V a.C.)
Author: Lorente González, Andrés
Tutor: Sierra Martín, César  
Abstract: Throughout the present writing the tyranny in the Archaic Greece will be based during the centuries VIII-V a.C. The phenomenon of tyranny arose in the seventh century a.C., therefore, has opted to analyze this period. It is, then, to analyze this phenomenon from different perspectives: political, social, economic, etymological. The classical foundation and its tendency towards a pejorative burden has conditioned the review of historiography when referring to this phenomenon. Therefore, we will try to put the conditioning factors before trying to de-label this connotation. On the other hand, the terminological use will be valued, as well as a review of different tyrannies - Corinth, Megara and Athens - to see how this phenomenon occurred and its subsequent analysis. Thus, we can observe how Cípselo responds against the aristocracy of Corinth, opting for a more peaceful path than his successor, Periandro, whose traditional image of the tyrant does respond under his figure. But without a doubt, the main figure is Pisistratus. He represents discord before the diffuse and ill-fated idea of a tyrant, promoted by the main classical authors. In short, we will study both the etymological origin of the word tyrant, its relation to other terms, such as basileus or the connotation of that word, the review of primary sources to know the negative connotation about this form of government and a review of different tyrannies.
