Analysis and Science in Aristotle
Analysis and Science in Aristotle (May 1997)
Patrick H. Byrne - Author

Presents a new interpretation of Aristotle's Analytics (the Prior and Posterior Analytics) as a unified whole, and argues that to "loose up" or solve—rather than to reduce or break up—is the principle meaning which best characterizes the Analytics.

Offering a new interpretation of Aristotle's Analytics (the Prior and Posterior Analytics) as a unified wh...(Read More)
 
 
Moral Codes and Social Structure in Ancient Greece
Moral Codes and Social Structure in Ancient Greece (July 1996)
A Sociology of Greek Ethics From Homer to the Epicureans and Stoics
Joseph M. Bryant - Author

"This is a challenging reappraisal of major developments in Greek society between the Dark Ages and the flowering of Hellenistic culture. Historians of Greek political life and of Greek philosophy will need to think again about the relationships between social structures and philosophical ethics, between brute economic or material facts and moral ideology. Bryant makes a strong case for the pertinence of historical sociology of a broadly Weberian ki...(Read More)
 
 
Plato's Craft of Justice
Plato's Craft of Justice (November 1995)
Richard D. Parry - Author

Shows that Plato's middle dialogues develop and extend, rather than reject, philosophical positions taken in the early dialogues.

This book traces the development of Plato's analogy between craft and virtue from Euthydemus and Gorgias through the central books of the Republic. It shows that Plato's middle dialogues develop and extend, rather than reject, philosophical positions taken in the early dia...(Read More)
 
 
Aristotle's Theory of Actuality
Aristotle's Theory of Actuality (September 1995)
Zev Bechler - Author

This is an attack on Aristotle showing that his misplaced drive toward the consistent application of his actualistic ontology (denying the reality of all potential things) resulted in many of his major theses being essentially vacuous.

This is an attack on Aristotle showing that, after his revolt against Plato's separate ideas, he formulated his actualistic ontology denying the reality of all potential things and...(Read More)
 
 
The Death of Socrates and the Life of Philosophy
The Death of Socrates and the Life of Philosophy (September 1995)
An Interpretation of Plato's Phaedo
Peter J. Ahrensdorf - Author

Shows that the dialogue in Plato's Phaedo is primarily devoted to presenting Socrates' final defense of the philosophical life against the theoretical and political challenge of religion.

"That the psychology of its characters is a key to understanding the argument of a Platonic dialogue is a principle effectively applied in this reading of the Phaedo and well supported by the results: in bringing out the differences in ...(Read More)
 
 
Finitude and Transcendence in the Platonic Dialogues
Finitude and Transcendence in the Platonic Dialogues (August 1995)
Drew A. Hyland - Author

This book explains how to read Plato, emphasizing the philosophic importance of the dramatic aspects of the dialogues, and showing that Plato is an ironic thinker and that his irony is deeply rooted in his philosophy.

"Professor Hyland's thesis is that finitude, and the response to finitude that he calls 'finite transcendence,' is an informing theme of the Platonic dialogues. This important observation is confirmed in th...(Read More)
 
 
Inventing the Universe
Inventing the Universe (July 1995)
Plato's Timaeus, the Big Bang, and the Problem of Scientific Knowledge
Luc Brisson - Author
F. Walter Meyerstein - Author

A parallel investigation of both Plato's Timaeusand the contemporary standard Big Bang model of the universe shows that any possible scientific knowledge of the universe is ultimately grounded in irreducible and undemonstrable propositions. These are inventions of the human mind. The scientific knowledge of the universe is entirely composed in a series of axioms and rules of inference underlying a formalized system. There is no logical relati...(Read More)
 
 
Aristotle's Philosophy of Friendship
Aristotle's Philosophy of Friendship (April 1995)
Suzanne Stern-Gillet - Author

Presents the major issues in Aristotle's writings on Friendship.
"Professor Stern-Gillet has taken on the task of explaining how, in Aristotelian terms, a friend can be 'another self.' Using careful philological and philosophical analysis, she shows that the very concept of a 'self' develops only in the context of determining what (or who) is 'the other'; her analysis reveals that, contrary to standard dogma, Aristotle's ethical theory is...(Read More)

Other Selves (September 1994)
Aristotle on Personal and Political Friendship
Paul Schollmeier - Author

This book presents a thorough and systematic integration of Aristotle's analysis of friendship with the main lines of the rest of his work in Politics and Nicomachean Ethics. The author conveys a clear sense of the continuing illumination that Aristotle's analysis of friendship provides to contemporary ethical theorists and to students of Aristotle. Other Selves speaks to both audiences.

Paul Schollmeier

The Political Dimensions of Aristotle's Ethics
The Political Dimensions of Aristotle's Ethics (November 1993)
Richard Bodeus - Author
Jan Garrett - Translator

By renewing, with an economy of means and a rare discretion, our reading of an entire panorama of Aristotelianism, The Political Dimensions of Aristotle's Ethics seems to me to be epoch-making in current Aristotelian studies. The astonishing originality of Bodeus's text begins by taking the form of a reassembly: like those dismembered mythic heroes whose parts rearrange themselves of their own accord, the territories hitherto disjoined of ...(Read More)
