Why speak of gentleness in a world dominated by justice and heroism, in which cruel myths and tragedies abound, and in which the view of human life is harsh and violent? The Iliad is a poem about battles and death. Thucydides historical works depictMoreWhy speak of gentleness in a world dominated by justice and heroism, in which cruel myths and tragedies abound, and in which the view of human life is harsh and violent? The Iliad is a poem about battles and death. Thucydides historical works depict the violent physical and moral acts committed in a merciless war.

The emergence of a gentleness ideal in Greek thought is an even more extraordinary phenomenon. How did it manage to occur in such an unfavourable context, gain so much momentum at the end of the fifth century that it is still evident in contemporary Greek philosophy?

Gentleness is described on these pages as a humane attitude, one belonging to the realm of ethics and embodying the Greek ideal. In this book, Jacqueline de Romilly examines a practical behaviour whose nature varies according to circumstances: gentle ways, kindness towards others, generosity, goodness, tolerance, understanding, humanity, charity, mildness, and other values designated by the same word: praos.
