Item description for Sophrosyne And The Rhetoric Of Self-Restraint: Polysemy & Persuasive Use Of An Ancient Greek Value Term (Mnemosyne, Bibliotheca Classica Batava Supplementum) by Adriaan Rademaker...

While of paramount importance to Ancient Greek society, sophrosyne, the value of self-restraint, constitutes a notoriously complex concept, and provides the speaker of Ancient Greek with a subtle instrument for verbal persuasion. This study provides a new description of the semantics of sophrosyne in Archaic and Classical Greek, based on a model from the field of cognitive linguistics. Besides, the volume shows how such a semantic description can contribute to the analysis and study of our sources: it investigates how speakers in our texts (ab)use the term to achieve their ends, covering most of the main texts, and culminating in a chapter on the dialogues of Plato.
