Euripides and the Sophists: some dramatic treatments of philosophical ideas
This work describes how Euripides provides, in specific plays, a variety of original treatments of well-known views of his contemporaries, the Sophists. The emphasis is on Euripides as the creative virtuoso of dramatic ideas rather than as a philosopher. Euripides' adaptation covers a range of dramatic styles and approaches, from the tragic treatment of the nature in "Hippolytus", to the near parody of Sophistic views on sense-perception in "Helen".
