    Greco-Roman Ethics and the Naturalistic Fantasy.Brooke Holmes - 2014 - Isis 105 (3):569-578.
    To modern scholars, the naturalistic fallacy looks out of place in Greco-Roman antiquity owing to the robust associations between nature, especially human nature, and moral norms. Yet nature was understood by ancient authors not only as a norm but also as a form of necessity. The Greco-Roman philosophical schools grappled with how to reconcile the idea that human nature is given with the idea that it is a goal to be reached. This essay looks at the Stoic concept of oikeiōsis (...)

  4. Antiquities Beyond Humanism.Emanuela Bianchi, Sara Brill & Brooke Holmes (eds.) - 2019 - Oxford University Press.

    Euripides' Heracles in the Flesh.Brooke Holmes - 2008 - Classical Antiquity 27 (2):231-281.
    In this article, I analyze the role of Heracles' famous body in the representation of madness and its aftermath in Euripides' Heracles. Unlike studies of Trachiniae, interpretations of Heracles have neglected the hero's body in Euripides. This reading examines the eruption of that body midway through the tragedy as a part of Heracles that is daemonic and strange, but also integral to his identity. Central to my reading is the figure of the symptom, through which madness materializes onstage. Symptoms were (...)
