In the Classical polis, emotions were not exclusively considered to be disruptive factors jeopardizing the social harmony. They were regarded as indispensable tools to internalize the collective norms and values – and thus ultimately helped strengthening the community. This volume illuminates the pragmatics of emotions in ancient Greek communities of the Classical era from an interdisciplinary perspective.
