95.2 Filosofie Antieke Filosofie

Ackrill,J.
Aristoteles
Van 25,- voor 16,50 (vanwege verschoten rug)

De betekenis van de Griekse filosoof Aristoteles voor de ontwikkeling van het denken en voor de geschiedenis van wijsbegeerte, wetenschap en cultuur kan nauwelijks overdreven worden. De werken van Aristoteles (384 - 322) vormen de oudste ons bewaard gebleven neerslag van wat men een alomvattende en systematische bestudering van de werkelijkheid zou kunnen noemen. In de oudheid, de middeleeuwen, de renaissance en de nieuwe tijd hebben zijn werken vrijwel altijd een centrale rol gespeeld in wetenschappelijke en wijsgerige debatten. Zijn denkbeelden over literatuur en toneel hebben gezag tot op de dag van vandaag.

J.L. Ackrill, emeritus hoogleraar in de geschiedenis van de filosofie te Oxford, geeft in dit boek een voortreffelijke en lucide introductie op de filosofie van Aristoteles. Hij zet de argumenten, theorieen en ideeen van Aristoteles op scherpzinnige wijze uiteen. Ackrill verwoordt de veelzijdigheid van Aristoteles' filosofische onderzoekingen helder en levendig. Hij laat aan de hand van talloze voorbeelden zien dat de originele teksten niets van hun aantrekkingskracht hebben verloren. Aristoteles is een actuele, onmisbare en inspirerende gids voor de moderne filosofie

Aristoteles ( Ben Schomakers - vert)
Over de ziel
Grieks - Nederlands, vertaald, ingeleid en van aantekeningen voorzien door Ben Schomakers.

Aristoteles' De ziel is zonder enige twijfel een van de diepste, oorspronkelijkste en invloedrijkste teksten uit de geschiedenis van de filosofie. Aristoteles stelt er de vraag wat de ziel is en formuleert een antwoord dat ons nog steeds te denken geeft. Wat hij in dit werk over waarnemen, verbeelding en denken zegt heeft tot in onze tijd de filosofische discussie daarover bepaald.

Dit is een vernieuwde, tweetalige, heruitgave van de onvolprezen teksteditie van dit meesterwerk, dat verplichte lectuur is voor filosofen, psychologen en ieder die nadenkt over de vraag wat een ziel is en wat een mens is - wie hij zelf is.

Aristoteles (384-322 v. Chr.) was de grootste leerling van Plato, die hem volgens een antieke anekdote 'het intellect van de school' noemde. Na Plato's dood legde Aristoteles de basis voor een eigen school en werkte met grote toewijding aan een filosofisch oeuvre dat nagenoeg het geheel van de werkelijkheid zou bestrijken. Het hier vertaalde werk Peri psuches gaat over de kapitale vraag wat de ziel nu eigenlijk is, de ziel van mensen maar ook die van dieren en zelfs die van planten. Aristoteles' antwoord is fascinerend, prikkelend en nog steeds herkenbaar omdat hij wel aanvaardt dat de ziel altijd aan een lichaam gebonden is, maar niet bereid is haar aan dat lichaam prijs te geven. Ze is een onherleidbaar beginsel dat de levenloze materie tot een organisme maakt dat gericht is op de ontwikkeling van zijn mogelijkheden en waarin elk onderdeel dankzij de ziel een functie en betekenis heeft. Het is op dit antwoord dat Aristoteles uiteindelijk zijn antropologie, zijn ethiek en zijn sociale filosofie fundeert.

Ontology and the Art of Tragedy. An Approach to Aristotle's Poetics
A specialist work for those studying or researching Aristotle and his philosophy. Husain proposes an approach to reading Poetics based on principles and criteria associated with Aristotle's philosophy of being. This is not a translation, nor a commentary on the text itself, but a study of the distinctiveness of Poetics from Aristotle's corpus.

Aristotles Politics. Critical Essays
Aristotle's Politics is widely recognized as one of the classics of the history of political philosophy, and like every other such masterpiece, it is a work about which there is deep division. Many readers of Aristotle are uncertain whether his Politics has any contribution to make to contemporary debates about political life and political theory. The essays in this volume aim to address, implicitly or explicitly, this very question about the relevance of Arisotle's thinking in contemporary political philosophy. Written by leading scholars in lucid and accessible style, the nine essays in this volume will be a critical resource for newcomers to Aristotle.

Lawless, Andrew
Plato's Sun. An Introduction to Philosophy
van 33,75 voor 25,-

Writing an introductory text for philosophy is an exceedingly difficult task. The discipline has spent a century or more in existential crisis with the attack on metaphysics dating back at least to Nietzsche and carried forward in different ways by Heidegger, Wittgenstein, and Derrida, to name a few. This constant upheaval has precipitated a climate of self-doubt that goes to the core of philosophy, the result being a strange discipline with many of its most illustrious names proudly announcing its demise.

In Plato's Sun, Andrew Lawless takes on the challenge of creating an introductory text for philosophy, arguing that such a work has to take into account of the strangeness of the field and divulge it, rather than suppress it beneath traditional certainties and authoritative pronouncements. Lawless writes within the shadow of post-modern anti-metaphysical skepticism, introducing some of the principal areas of philosophy: metaphysics, epistemology, logic, ethics, and language.

Lawless's concern is not to resolve the issues he raises so much as to set them out in a way that lets the reader experience something of the philosopher's struggle. In so doing, Lawless holds fast to the Socratic vision of philosophy as a process of inquiry that values questions above answers, pushing the inquirer beyond his or her answers. With numerous pedagogical features including glossaries of names and key terms, suggested readings, and short chapter summaries, Plato's Sun will be an essential text to new students of philosophy and an important aid in teaching the subject.

Plato ( Seth Bernadette transl.)
The Being of the Beautiful: Platos Theaetetus, Sophist, and Statesman
The Being of the Beautiful collects Plato's three dialogues, the Theaetetus, Sophist, and Statesmen, in which Socrates formulates his conception of philosophy while preparing for trial. Renowned classicist Seth Benardete's careful translations clearly illuminate the dramatic and philosophical unity of these dialogues and highlight Plato's subtle interplay of language and structure. Extensive notes and commentaries, furthermore, underscore the trilogy's motifs and relationships. The translations are masterpieces of literalness.

Roochnik, David
Beautiful City. The Dialectical Character of Plato's Republic.
To the vast literature on Plato's Republic comes a new interpretation. In Beautiful City, David Roochnik argues convincingly that Plato's masterpiece is misunderstood by modern readers. The work must, he explains, be read dialectically, its parts understood as forming a unified whole. Approached in this way, the text no longer appears to defend an authoritarian and monolithic political system, but rather supplies a qualified defense of democracy and the values of diversity.

Writing in clear and straightforward prose, Roochnik demonstrates how Plato's treatment of the city and the soul evolves throughout the dialogue and can be appreciated only by considering the Republic in its entirety. He shows that the views expressed in the early parts of the text do not represent Plato's final judgment on these subjects but are in fact dialectical "moments" intended to be both partial and provisional. Books 5-7 of the Republic are, he maintains, meant to revise and improve upon books 2-4. Similarly, he sees the usually neglected books 8-10 as advancing beyond the thoughts presented in the previous books. Paying particular attention to these later books, Roochnik details, for instance, how the stories of the "mistaken" regimes, which are often seen as unimportant, are actually crucial in Plato's account of the soul.

Beautiful City is certain to be controversial, as the author's insights and opinions will engage and challenge philosophers, classicists, and political theorists.

Roochnik, David
Retrieving Aristotle in an Age of Crisis
In 1935 Edmund Husserl delivered his now famous lecture 'Philosophy and the Crisis of European Humanity', in which he argued that the 'misguided rationalism' of modern Western science, dominated by the model of mathematical physics, can tell us nothing about the 'meaning' of our lives. Today Husserl's conviction that the West faces a crisis is no longer an abstraction. With the ever-present threat of nuclear explosion, the degradation of the oceans, and the possibility that climate change will wreak havoc on civilization itself, people from all walks of life are wondering what has gone so terribly wrong and what remedies might be available.

In Retrieving Aristotle in an Age of Crisis, David Roochnik makes a lucid and powerful case that Aristotle offers a philosophical resource that even today can be of significant therapeutic value. Unlike the scientific revolutionaries of the seventeenth century, he insisted that both ordinary language and sense-perception play essential roles in the acquisition of knowledge. Centuries before Husserl, Aristotle was a phenomenologist who demanded that a successful theory remain faithful to human experience. His philosophy can thus provide precisely what modern European rationalism now so painfully lacks: an understanding and appreciation of the world in which human beings actually make their homes.

Metaphysics, Soul, and Ethics in Ancient Thought. Themes from the Work of Richard Sorabji
Van 129,- voor 97,50

Leading figures in ancient philosophy present eighteen original papers on three key themes in the work of Richard Sorabji. The papers dealing with Metaphysics range from Democritus to Numenius on basic questions about the structure and nature of reality: necessitation, properties, and time. The section on Soul includes one paper on the individuation of souls in Plato and five papers on Aristotle's and Aristotelian theories of cognition, with a special emphasis on perception. The section devoted to Ethics concentrates upon Stoicism and the complex views the Stoics held on such topics as motivation, akrasia, oikeiosis, and the emotions. The volume also contains a fascinating 'intellectual autobiography' by Sorabji himself, and a full Bibliography of his works.

Warren, James
Facing Death. Epicurus and his Critics
The ancient philosophical school of Epicureanism tried to argue that death is 'nothing to us'. Were they right? James Warren provides a comprehensive study and articulation of the interlocking arguments against the fear of death found not only in the writings of Epicurus himself, but also in Lucretius' poem De rerum natura and in Philodemus' work De morte. These arguments are central to the Epicurean project of providing ataraxia (freedom from anxiety) and therefore central to an understanding of Epicureanism as a whole. They also offer significant resources for modern discussions of the value of death - one which stands at the intersection of metaphysics and ethics. If death is the end of the subject, and the subject can not be benefited nor harmed after death, is it reasonable nevertheless to fear the ceasing-to-be? If the Epicureans are not right to claim that the dead can neither be benefited nor harmed, what alternative models might be offered for understanding the harm done by death and do these alternatives suffer from any further difficulties? The discussion involves consideration of both ethical and metaphysical topics since it requires analysis not only of the nature of a good life but also the nature of personal identity and time. A number of modern philosophers have offered criticisms or defences of the Epicureans' views. Warren explores and evaluates these in the light of a systematic and detailed study of the precise form and intention of the Epicureans' original arguments.

Warren argues that the Epicureans also were interested in showing that mortality is not to be regretted and that premature death is not to be feared. Their arguments for these conclusions are to be found in their positive conception of the nature of a good and complete life, which divorce the completeness of a life as far as possible from considerations of its duration. Later chapters investigate the nature of a life lived without the fear of death and pose serious problems for the Epicureans being able to allow any concern for the post mortem future and being able to offer a positive reason for prolonging a life which is already complete in their terms.

White, Nicholas
Individual and Conflict in Greek Ethics
Nicholas White opposes the long-standard view that ancient Greek ethics is fundamentally different from modern ethical views, especially those prevalent since Kant. Since the eighteenth century, and indeed since before Hegel, moral philosophers wishing to oppose the dualism of rationality-cum-morality vs. inclination, especially as it is manifested in Kant, have looked to Greek thought for an alternative conception of ethical norms and the good life. As a result, Greek ethics, particularly in the so-called Classical period of the fourth century BCE, has for more than two centuries been standardly thought to be fundamentally eudaimonist, and to have the character of what is nowadays normally called the ethics of virtue. White argues that although this picture of Greek ethics is not without an element of truth, it nevertheless seriously distorts the facts. In the first place, Greek thought is far more variegated than the picture suggests. Secondly, it contains many elements - even in the Classical thinkers Plato and Aristotle - that are not eudaimonist and also not suitable for an ethics of virtue. Greek thinkers were not as a group convinced of the possibility of a harmony of one's happiness with full regard for the happiness of others and with conformity to ethical norms. On the contrary, Greek thinkers were well aware of,and took seriously, the idea that ethical norms can possess a force that does not derive from conduciveness to one's own happiness. Indeed, even Plato and Aristotle took it that under certain circumstances there can even be a clash between ethical standards and one's own well-being. The project of completely eliminating the possibility of such a clash came to full development not in the Classical period but rather in the ethics of the Stoics in the third century. Individual and Conflict in Greek Ethics argues that throughout Greek thought the concept of ethics as a source of obligations and imperatives can, in unfavorable circumstances, run counter to one's own happiness. In this sense Greek ethics has a shape similar to that of modern Kantian and post-Kantian thinking, and should not be seen as opposed to it.
