    Description
    This edited volume brings together eighteen articles which examine the role of erãos as an emotion in ancient Greek culture. Arising out of a conference held at University College London in 2009, the volume ranges from Archaic epic and lyric poetry, through tragedy and comedy, to philosophical and technical treatises and more, and includes contributions from a variety of international scholars well published in the field of ancient Greek emotions. Taking into account all important thinking about the nature of erãos from the eighth century BCE to the third century CE, and covering a very broad range of sources and theoretical approaches, both in the chronological and the generic sense, it considers the phenomenology, psychology, and physiology of erãos; its associated language, metaphors, and imagery; the overlap of erãos with other emotions (jealousy, madness, philia, pothos); its role in political society; and the relationship between the human emotion and Eros the god.
