Plato's Socrates as Educator
Plato's Socrates as Educator (October 2000)
Gary Alan Scott - Author

Examines and evaluates Socrates' role as an educator in Plato's dialogues.

Despite his ceaseless efforts to purge his fellow citizens of their unfounded opinions and to bring them to care for what he believes to be the most important things, Plato's Socrates rarely succeeds in his pedagogical project with the characters he encounters. This is in striking contrast to the historical Socrates, who spawned the careers of Plato, Xenophon, a...(Read More)

Investigates Aristotle's views on the ontological status of artifacts in the Metaphysics, with implications for a variety of metaphysical problems.

Susan D. Collins - Editor

Plato's Charmides and the Socratic Ideal of Rationality
Plato's Charmides and the Socratic Ideal of Rationality (April 1998)
W. Thomas Schmid - Author

Interprets Plato's Charmides as a microcosm of Socratic philosophy that presents Plato's vision of the life of critical reason and of its uneasy relation to political life in the ancient city.

"This book is a lucid presentation of an interpretation of the Charmides that takes its essential bearings from the interplay of word and deed. Schmid's work is clear-headed, sensible, thorough, and consistently helpf...(Read More)
 
 
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)

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)
 
 
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)
