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)
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)
The Symposium and the Phaedrus
The Symposium and the Phaedrus (July 1993)
Plato's Erotic Dialogues
Plato - Author
William S. Cobb - Translation and introduction by

The Symposium and the Phaedrus are combined here because of their shared theme: a reflection on the nature of erotic love, the love that begins with sexual desire but can transcend that origin and reach even the heights of religious ecstasy. This reflection is carried out explicitly in the speeches and conversations in the dialogues, and implicitly in the dramatic depiction of actions and characters. Thus, the two dialogues deal wit...(Read More)
The Masks of Dionysos
The Masks of Dionysos (May 1993)
A Commentary on Plato's Symposium
Daniel E. Anderson - Author

Anderson takes more seriously than anyone else has the dramatic aspect of the Symposium. Obviously almost everyone pays attention to that feature of the dialogue, most especially Stanley Rosen, to whom Anderson owes a considerable debt. But Anderson pushes this interpretation farther, with mid-Western common sense and an elfin sense of humor. The emphasis on Dionysos is very well taken, for he correctly observes that this theme holds the dial...(Read More)
Rhetoric and Reality in Plato's
Rhetoric and Reality in Plato's "Phaedrus" (March 1993)
David A. White - Author

The Phaedrus is well-known for the splendid mythical panorama Socrates develops in his second speech, and for its graphic descriptions of erotic behavior. This book shows how the details of the myth and the accounts of interaction between lovers are based on a carefully articulated metaphysical structure. It follows the dialogue as narrated, showing how passages that may not appear relevant to metaphysics have been deployed to heighten the vi...(Read More)
Aristotle's Physics and Its Medieval Varieties
Aristotle's Physics and Its Medieval Varieties (August 1992)
Helen S. Lang - Author

This book considers the concepts that lay at the heart of natural philosophy and physics from the time of Aristotle until the fourteenth century. The first part presents Aristotelian ideas and the second part presents the interpretation of these ideas by Philoponus, Albertus Magnus, Thomas Aquinas, John Buridan, and Duns Scotus.

Across the eight chapters, the problems and texts from Aristotle that set the stage for European natural philosoph...(Read More)
Two Studies in the Early Academy
Two Studies in the Early Academy (August 1991)
R. M. Dancy - Author

"The book deals with topics at the forefront of research in ancient philosophy. Most comparable research until recently focused almost entirely on the two best-known members of the early Academy, Plato and Aristotle. By turning to two less well-known figures, Speusippus and Eudoxus, Dancy both opens up new areas of research and sheds new light on old ones." -- Ian Mueller, University of Chicago

"What I find most commendable about this work ...(Read More)
Pleasure, Knowledge, and Being
Pleasure, Knowledge, and Being (July 1990)
An Analysis of Plato's Philebus
Cynthia Hampton - Author

Hampton illumines the overall structure of the Philebus. Taking the interrelations of pleasure, knowledge, and being as the keys to understanding the unity of the dialogue, she focuses on the central point. The analysis of both pleasure and knowledge can be understood fully only if placed within the context of the more general and fundamental question of how human life fits into the overall structure of reality.

What guides the discu...(Read More)
The Rational Enterprise
The Rational Enterprise (April 1990)
logos in Plato's Theaetetus
Rosemary Desjardins - Author

"Desjardins' conclusion, that the Theaetetus really does point to a particular theory of knowledge, certainly will be controversial, since for many people the idea that the Theaetetus fails to define knowledge is the cornerstone of their interpretation of Plato's later philosophical thought. But whatever one thinks about the conclusion, it must be agreed that the manner in which it is defended is intrinsically important. Desjardins s...(Read More)
