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)
 
 
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)
