    Arete Explained. Arete (Greek: ἀρετή), in its basic sense, means "excellence of any kind". The term may also mean "moral virtue". In its earliest appearance in Greek, this notion of excellence was ultimately bound up with the notion of the fulfillment of purpose or function: the act of living up to one's full potential.. The term from Homeric times onwards is not gender specific. In Diachronic Dialogues: Authority and Continuity in Homer and the Homeric Tradition Ahuvia Kahane considers central aspects of Homer's poetry: truth, knowledge, gender, virtue and the heroic code, authorship, memory and song, diction, and formula. Kahane makes the case for performative, rather than essential, values in the Iliad and the Odyssey.
