PICON CASAS, Javier. La noción de "hybris" en el Critias de Platón. arete, 2008, vol.20, no.1, p.75-110. ISSN 1016-913X.
The following theses are basically justified: (1) the traditional mythical-religious sense of justice as punishment of the ΰβρις was discredited during the Peloponnesian War, as Thucydide shows. (2) In times of Aristotle such a sense had already disappeared in favour of a new paradigm based on the concept of τΰχη. (3) Plato’s work constitutes one of the last attempts to recover the traditional mythical-religious sense trying to interpret the Peloponnesian War through the mechanism of punishment of the ΰβρις.
