Para el político ateniense homónimo, véase Tucídides .

Tucídides fue un historiador y militar ateniense. Su obra Historia de la Guerra del Peloponeso recuenta la historia de la guerra del siglo V a. C. entre Esparta y Atenas hasta el año 411 a. C. Tucídides ha sido considerado como el padre de la "historiografía científica" debido a sus estrictos estándares de recopilación de evidencias y de sus análisis en términos de causa-efecto sin referencia a la intervención de dioses, tal y como él mismo subraya en su introducción a su obra.

También ha sido considerado el padre de la escuela del realismo político, que valora las relaciones entre las naciones en función de su poder, y no en razón de la justicia. Su texto todavía se estudia en academias militares avanzadas de todo el mundo, y el Diálogo de los melios continúa siendo una importante obra en el estudio de la teoría de las relaciones internacionales.

„Again, in our enterprises we present the singular spectacle of daring and deliberation, each carried to its highest point, and both united in the same persons; although usually decision is the fruit of ignorance, hesitation of reflection.“

—  Thucydides
Context: Again, in our enterprises we present the singular spectacle of daring and deliberation, each carried to its highest point, and both united in the same persons; although usually decision is the fruit of ignorance, hesitation of reflection. But the palm of courage will surely be adjudged most justly to those, who best know the difference between hardship and pleasure and yet are never tempted to shrink from danger. In generosity we are equally singular, acquiring our friends by conferring, not by receiving, favours. Book II, 2.40-[3]

„I could have wished that the reputations of many brave men were not to be imperilled in the mouth of a single individual, to stand or fall according as he spoke well or ill. For it is hard to speak properly upon a subject where it is even difficult to convince your hearers that you are speaking the truth.“

Context: I could have wished that the reputations of many brave men were not to be imperilled in the mouth of a single individual, to stand or fall according as he spoke well or ill. For it is hard to speak properly upon a subject where it is even difficult to convince your hearers that you are speaking the truth. On the one hand, the friend who is familiar with every fact of the story may think that some point has not been set forth with that fullness which he wishes and knows it to deserve; on the other, he who is a stranger to the matter may be led by envy to suspect exaggeration if he hears anything above his own nature. For men can endure to hear others praised only so long as they can severally persuade themselves of their own ability to equal the actions recounted: when this point is passed, envy comes in and with it incredulity. Book II, 2.35-[1]-[3]
