Abstract

Handlungsmotive bei Herodot . Stuttgart, Franz Steiner Verlag, 2013. 226 pp. Pr. €44.00 (pb). isbn 9783515104111. One of Dr. Froehlich’s main objectives is strongly realized: to show the extremely wide variety of values, thoughts, impulses, emotions, and circumstances that drive people to action, in Herodotus’ Histories . F[roehlich] thoroughly demon-strates that in the range and complexity of his depiction of the sources of human action, Herodotus is in fact writing (even perhaps inventing) genre-specific his-toriography, creating a historical narrative that reflects the concerns and advanced intellectual trends of his time. Her study can profitably be read together with Emily Baragwanath’s excellent Motivation and Narrative in Herodotus (Oxford, 2008); the two books taken together give us real insight into the complexity of Herodotus’ understanding of peoples’ motives as a basic driver of historical narrative. F. begins with a methodological introduction (11-33). She explicitly does not intend to judge the historical accuracy of Herodotus’ depiction of the motives of his actors; like Baragwanath she chooses to focus on the way the narrative of events plays out. Ex-cept in rare specific instances F. disclaims a dependence on or discussion of Herodotus’ Greek vocabulary for the explicit analysis of motivation. Included for
