In this treatise, I have made clear these two points:first, the struture of the text;second, the cultural background of the structure. I have investigated the transition of the type of the intelligence. In the Homeric age, the intelligence ca11ed METIS was highly estimated. This is the eminent character of the shamanistic culture. The word‘‘METIS”connotes the ability to cope with the flUCtUant reality. 111the age of Plato, the sophists, the rhetoricians, the doctors and the politicians had this ability. They were, however, little concerned with the ethical aspect. Plato stood against this type of i11telligence by thinking articulately through words. But the third type of the intelligence, which Plato suggested, is still insu伍cient to reach the real recognition of the world. We must once get out of the linguistic dimension.
