(2011)BYZANTINE AND MODERN GREEK STUDIES.35(2).p.134-148 Mark abstract In a letter to his friend Iasites (Sathas 171), Michael Psellos proposes that he give the letter itself in exchange for a horse. Exploiting the polysemy of alogon and logos in Greek, Psellos is able to frame this playful representation of a gift exchange in a philosophical opposition between materiality and reason. This allows him to present his intellectual competences as an exclusive kind of cultural capital that deserves material support from other members of society.
