What is going on, when a socio-political rupture produces a break in knowledge production? How does this happen? And how is it concretized in a field of knowledge, such as the study of deviance and social control? This is precisely the object of the present volume, with special reference to an era and an area, that is, Archaic Greece, which is unique and interesting for reasons that will be discussed in this chapter and which have yet to be studied by scholars who deal with issues of the (pre-) history of criminology and historical production of criminological knowledge.
