The difference between the middle and passive is that the middle implies that I stop of 21 22 Lesson I my own free will, the passive that I am forced to stop by someone or something outside myself. The active form is transitive (that is, it takes an object: I stop someone or something other than myself). In this example the middle is intransitive (since it is used reflexively). 2. πείθω I persuade (the active voice); πείθομαι in the middle voice means I persuade myself, and in the passive I am persuaded.

Naturally the understanding of the word changed over the years. In Homer’s heroic world, ἀρετή was martial valor, the quality of the hero, the ideal for which men lived and died. Later it came to have a more political connotation: under the influence of the Sophists, man’s highest goal came to be political ἀρετή. Socrates’ mission was spiritual perfection (ἀρετή), which he believed could be attained through knowledge of the truth. Ἀρετή became less sexist and more generalized, as is attested in the words of Antisthenes: ἀνδρὸς καὶ γυναικὸς ἡ αὐτὴ ἀρετή, of male and female, the same excellence.
