Jack Crabtree, director of the McKenzie Study Center, defines sophrosune as a settled, self-aware self-contentment-a kind of enlightened self-acceptance. Sophrosune is juxtaposed against the image of the prideful and ambitious power seeker. The teaching of sophrosune, that hubristic overreaching gets punished, is a leading theme in Greek literature of the fifth century. It is also defined as meaning moderately prudent, i.e. not too prudent. Hope this helps.
