Michel Foucault illuminates us on the role of parrhesia in ancient Greece.

"My intention was not to deal with the problem of truth, but with the problem of the truth teller, or of truth telling as an activity...who is able to tell the truth, about what, with what consequences, and with what relations to power...With the question of the importance of telling the truth, knowing who is able to tell the truth, and knowing why we should tell the truth, we have the roots of what we could call the 'critical' tradition in the West."

Michel Foucault
