Sullivan discusses each term separately, gathering them from Euripides' seventeen extant tragedies and from fragments of other plays. She begins with a broad look at how both earlier and contemporary poets used the various terms, moving on to a detailed discussion of Euripides' own usage, from his most often used phr_n to his new use of psych_. Euripides' Use of Psychological Terminology will be of interest to scholars of classics, in particular those studying the fifth-century, as well as to those interested in psychology and its presentation in ancient literature.
