[Xmca-l] RES: Re: Habits (Greek: ethos)

I agree, because habits for ethos is a constructo in polis, society. It is
not conditioned. We can translate for 'habitus' to make it different.

Assunto: [Xmca-l] Re: Habits (Greek: ethos)

Sorry, can't keep my hands off this. "Ethos" in Greek is one of those
untranslatable words that bundles up a whole set of concepts without an
equivalent in English. It includes the idea of habits, habitually, but it is
not rght to say it *is* the Greek word for habit.

I'm not against us discussing habits at all; it just awoke the slumbering
classicist in me.
