feelings fluctuate broadly among cultures, specifically of their eliciting stipulations, social acceptability, kinds of expression, and co-extent of terminology. Envy and Jealousy in Classical Athens examines the feeling, expression, and literary illustration of those significant feelings in Athens. prior scholarship has essentially taken a lexical method, concentrating on utilization of the Greek phrases phthonos and zêlos. This has price, but in addition barriers, for 2 purposes: the discreditable nature of phthonos renders its ascription or disclamation suspect, and there's no Classical Greek label for sexual jealousy. A complementary procedure is consequently required, one that reads the expressed values and activities of whole situations.

Building on fresh advancements in studying emotion "scripts" in classical texts, this ebook applies to Athenian tradition and literature insights at the contexts, unsleeping and unconscious motivations, subjective manifestations, and indicative behaviors of envy, jealousy, and similar feelings. those serious insights are derived from smooth philosophical, mental, psychoanalytical, sociological, and anthropological scholarship, therefore allowing an exploration of either the categorical theorization and review of envy and jealousy, and likewise the extra indirect ways that they locate expression throughout various genres-in specific philosophy, oratory, comedy, and tragedy. by means of utilizing this new method, Ed Sanders illuminates an important and underexplored point of Classical Athenian tradition and literature.
