Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] The therapeutic argument is a particular typology of philosophical argumentation, practiced within the three main Hellenistic philosophical schools. In analogy with the medical model, this argument is addressed to those who are in a state of psychic or emotional turmoil but want to reach healing with purely rational means. Making use of the fictitious figure of Nikidion, a Greek ether in search of spiritual peace, Nussbaum has her put to the test the subjects professed and practiced by the individual schools.
