A History of Ancient Philosophy II
A History of Ancient Philosophy II (November 1990)
Plato and Aristotle
Giovanni Reale - Author
John R. Catan - Editor/translator

In this book Reale presents Plato and Aristotle.

At the center of Reale's interpretation of Plato is the fulcrum of the supersensible, the metaphysical discovery that Plato presented as a result of the Second Voyage. This discovery of the supersensible is, in Reale's view, not only the fundamental phase of ancient thought, but it also constitutes a milestone on the path of western philosophy.

Reale presents Plato in three different di...(Read More)

A Work on the Theory of the Principles and Unwritten Doctrines of Plato with a Collection of the Fundamental Documents
Hans Joachim Kramer - Author
John R. Catan - Editor/translator

This is a book about the relationship of the two traditions of Platonic interpretation -- the indirect and the direct traditions, the written dialogues and the unwritten doctrines. Kramer, who is the foremost proponent of the Tubingen School of interpretation, presents the unwritten doctrines as the crown of Plato's system and the key revealing it.

Kramer unfolds the philosophical significance of the unwritten doctrines in their fullness. H...(Read More)

The Schools of the Imperial Age
Giovanni Reale - Author
John R. Catan - Editor/translator

This book covers the first 500 years of the common era. These years witnessed the revivals of Aristotelianism, Epicureanism, Pyrrhonism, Cynicism, and Pythagoreanism; but by far the most important movement was the revival of Platonism under Plotinus. Here, the historical context of Plotinus is provided including the currents of thought that preceded him and opened the path for him. The presuppositions of the Enneads are made explicit and t...(Read More)
 
 
A History of Ancient Philosophy I
A History of Ancient Philosophy I (August 1987)
From the Origins to Socrates
Giovanni Reale - Author
John R. Catan - Editor/translator

Beginning with the origins of Western philosophy, the profound creation of the Hellenic genius, Reale presents an appreciation of the Naturalists, the Sophists, Socrates, and the Minor Socratics.

Special attention is paid to the Eleatics because their problems decisively mark Platonic and Aristotelian philosophy.

Interpretation of the Sophists benefits from the recent reevaluation of their thought. Socrates himself would be inco...(Read More)
 
 
A History of Ancient Philosophy III
A History of Ancient Philosophy III (June 1985)
Systems of the Hellenistic Age
Giovanni Reale - Author
John R. Catan - Editor/translator

Reale's volume supplies a synthesis previously lacking--a synthesis in the historical treatment of the great philosophies of the Hellenistic Age: the Academy, the Peripatos, the Stoa, the Garden of Epicurus, Scepticism, and Eclecticism. Reale's extensive and fully documented treatment of the major schools of the period is unified by his thesis that the ethics developed by these major schools were secular faiths that sprang from intuitions about the...(Read More)
 
 
Aristotle
Aristotle (June 1981)
The Collected Papers of Joseph Owens
Joseph Owens - Author
John R. Catan - Editor

“Great philosophers as well as great artists have the gift of inspiring profoundly different conceptions and meaning in the individuals who contemplate their work,” writes Joseph Owens. Even now, twenty-three centuries after the philosopher's death, the study of Aristotle continues to challenge us and to broaden our intellectual outlook.

In this volume, John R. Catan has gathered together 18 major essays by th...(Read More)
 
 
The Concept of First Philosophy and the Unity of the Metaphysics of Aristotle
The Concept of First Philosophy and the Unity of the Metaphysics of Aristotle (June 1980)
Giovanni Reale - Author
John R. Catan - Editor/translator

Reale’s monumental work establishes the exact dimensions of Aristotle’s concept of first philosophy and proves the profound unity of concept that exists in Aristotle’s Metaphysics. Reale’s opposition to the genetic interpretation of the Metaphysics is an updated return to a more traditional view of Aristotle’s work, one which runs counter to nearly all contemporary scholarship. Reale argues that Aristo...(Read More)
 
 
Saint Thomas Aquinas on the Existence of God
Saint Thomas Aquinas on the Existence of God (June 1980)
The Collected Papers of Joseph Owens
Joseph Owens - Author
John R. Catan - Editor

This book puts before the reader a succinct and philosophically valid interpretation of St. Thomas Aquinas’ arguments for the existence of God by a modern, historically grounded interpreter of his thought. Father Joseph Owens is well known for the exacting care with which he prepares his articles and the solid scholarly apparatus with which he supports them. His knowledge of Greek, Latin, Aristotelian, as well as the Thomistic corpus is ...(Read More)
