Ancient Philosophy

Book by Christopher Shields, Ancient Philosophy Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Ancient Philosophy books, In this re-titled and substantially revised update of his Classical Philosophy (2003), Christopher Shields expands his coverage to include the Hellenistic era, and now offers an introduction to more than 1,000 years of ancient philosophy. From Thales and other Pre-Socratics through Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, and on to Epicureanism, Stoicism, and Scepticism, Ancient Philosophy traces the important connections between these periods and individuals without losing sight of the novelties and dynamics unique to each. The coverage of Plato and Aristotle also has been expanded. It now includes, for example, updated coverage of Plato's allegories of the cave and the divided line and the metaphor of the sun as well as features of Plato's epistemology. Shields also adds new discussion on Aristotle's theory of virtue and his approach to the Socratic problem of akrasia, or weakness of will. In terms of its structure, Ancient Philosophy is presented so that each philosophical position receives: (1) a brief introduction, (2) a sympathetic review of its principal motivations and primary supporting arguments, and (3) a short assessment, inviting readers to evaluate its plausibility. The result is a book that brings the ancient arguments to life, making the introduction truly contemporary. It will serve as both a first stop and a well visited resource for any student of the subject. Ancient Philosophy offers a vivid picture of the ideas that flourished at philosophy's long birth and considers their relevance, both to the historical development of the Western philosophical tradition, and to philosophy today.

Plotinus On Selfhood Freedom And Politics

Book by Asger Ousager, Plotinus On Selfhood Freedom And Politics Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Plotinus On Selfhood Freedom And Politics books, As the most important philosophical work to emerge in the 700-year period between Aristotle and Augustine, The Enneads has been subject to intense scrutiny for more than 2000 years. But the mystical and abstract nature of these treatises by Plotinus continues to resist easy elucidation. In this volume, the latest in the Aarhus Studies on Mediterranean Antiquity, Asger Ousager grapples with the great neo-Platonist's conception of the individual. Is the individual free or determined? Is the Plotinian God subject to any compulsion Himself, and with what consequences for our inner and outer freedom? And finally, what are the political and ethical implications of Plotinism? Since Plotinus has traditionally been regarded as apolitical, it is the evidence that Ousager marshals for his political philosophy that forms the most intriguing part of this study. According to the author, what distinguishes Plotinus from Plato and Aristotle politically is his emphasis on natural authority, mutual co-operation and the immense potential of all people, even slaves. The volume concludes with a brief survey of archaeological evidence for the direct social and political impact of Plotinus' thought on his own age.

Book by فريدريك نيتشه, Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download books, كتاب «الفجر» ليس في حقيقته كتاباً سردياً كما اعتادت الكتب أن تكون، بل إنه ينتمي، شكلاً، وربما مضموناً أيضاً إلى معظم كتب نيتشه السابقة واللاحقة، في تألفه من 575 فقرة تتفاوت طولاً وكثافة، يحاول الكاتب أن يعبر من خلالها عن مواقفه من الأخلاق، من الإنسان ومن الحياة. ولا بد من الإشارة هنا إلى أن للكتاب عنواناً ثانوياً، هو «تأملات حول الأفكار الأخلاقية المسبقة» (أو الأحكام المسبقة). وعلى هذا النحو، بدءاً من هذا العنوان يتضح لنا كيف أن نيتشه يضعنا مباشرة في قلب السجال الذي كان يهمه في ذلك الحين، ذلك أن العنوان - حتى وإن تغاضى كثر عن ذلك - يشير مباشرة إلى «الأحكام المسبقة» لا إلى «الأخلاق» في شكلها القيمي السلوكي. وهكذا لم يفت كبار شارحي نيتشه ومكمّلي عمله أن يشيروا بوضوح إلى أن هذا الكتاب «على رغم أنه يبدأ الحملة التي خاضها نيتشه ضد أخلاقية المجتمع»، لا يشن أي هجوم على الأخلاق نفسها ولا يرفضها. كل ما في الأمر أنه يدعو فيه إلى نوع من «نقل الأخلاقية من أسس إلى أخرى» وبالتالي الانتقال إلى أخلاق جديدة، وقيم جديدة، تنبع من الإنسان وتصب لديه.
