  1. Μανια and αληθεια in Plato's Phaedrvs.Fábio Serranito - 2020 - Classical Quarterly 70 (1):101-118.
    This article maps the complex and changing interrelation of madness and truth in the erotic speeches of the Phaedrus. I try to show that μανία is not merely a secondary aspect but rather a fundamental element within the structure binding together the sequence of speeches.

Lastly, I consider the instrumentality relationship more generally and its place in Plato’s teleological worldview.
