What is respect?
Due to the globalization, people interact much more frequently which makes respect more important to promote the harmony than before. However, people from diverse cultures have different definitions to respect, so it is considerable to clarify the meaning of respect. As Homeric Hymns and the Book of songs have great influence on their own cultures for quite a long time, this research aims to find out what is respect in them. This research uses the hermeneutics and comparison methods to achieve this aim. The research finds respect is the foundation of people related to excellence and honor in Homeric Hymns, while that is related to the virtue in the Book of songs.
Keywords: respect, Homeric Hymns, the Book of songs.
