Paraskeue - Philology

This is an interesting philological background text for those interested in the term paraskeue; the author's interest in the term comes from her study of Thucydides, who uses the term significantly more frequently than his contemporaries, e.g, Herodotus. Partially we are told for reasons that he liked to use abstract nouns, partly also however because the term has internal to it an ambiguity which makes it conceptually useful for narrating and diagnosing strategic situations. Allison - Paraskeue Process Product Ambiguity
