Matthew Fende September 20, 2007 CAMS45, Section 8 Paper #1 Humans and Gods The Ancient Greek gods and goddesses and humans shared special relationships, a symbiotic connection and had close up interactions which encourages the idea of human relevance to the gods. Each of the gods has their own personal favorite humans, whether it be the son or daughter between the god and a mortal, like the son of Aphrodite and Anchises, Aeneas, or just a human that they deem worthy of their help because of their arête, like Athena with Odysseus. This can also work the other way around. Sometimes gods make it their personal goal to make some humans’ lives a living hell which in turn can sometimes pit gods up against each other if another god favors that human. For example, Poseidon’s enmity toward Odysseus, because he blinded Poseidon’s son Polyphemus, led to Poseidon delaying Odysseus’ journey back home to Ithaca for more than a decade.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
