Integrating research with mind maps

I'm involved in a major research-based writing project and I'm looking for a way to bridge the gap between mind maps and research findings. I currently do a lot of thematic organizing in mind maps, and I separately keep a huge list of quotes/paraphrases from my research. The problem is fitting the two together. [more inside]

Looking up ancient Greek words

What resources are available to investigate the meaning of a philosophical term in ancient Greek? I'm looking for something far more detailed than just a dictionary or a translation of a passage--I'd like to be aware of the shades of meaning and nuances of use, historical baggage, etc. In case some context is helpful, there are a couple of Greek terms that might be useful as metaphors in a dissertation, but I want to make sure that I know all the ways that the terms might be taken when designing the metaphor. The catch is that I don't speak any Greek, either ancient or modern; however, resources in English, French, Spanish, and German are all options.
