At once reference text and literary foray, this work is designed to engage both specialists and non-specialists. It offers detailed discussion of the Greek text for those who have a knowledge of the language while also making all readings available in translation and transliterated forms. Sophocles' Use of Psychological Terminology will be an enduring resource for anyone interested in Athenian tragedy and especially for those interested in how the early Greeks viewed what we now think of as psychological activity.

This masterly study examines Sophocles' use of six key psychic terms, analysing how he refers to these terms as sources of thought, emotion, and will. A meticulous synthesis of existing scholarship and philological inquiry, it compares Sophocles' use of language with that of earlier and contemporary poets and with that of Aechylus to determine the extent to which his usage was traditional or new. Sophocles' use of psychological terminology is a vital part of the tragedies. While he uses some terms in traditional ways, he uses others in entirely new contexts and also presents new images of the six psychic entities.
