Saving the city philosopher-kings and other classical paradigms by Malcolm Schofield ( )
14 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in English and held by 1,401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
How are political communities cemented together? Are rights inherent in the idea of citizenship? Saving the City examines ancient political thought from Homer to Cicero. It explores the problem of exploiting the philosophical past without reading the present back into it, discussing how far we can use categories such as the heroic code, utopianism, ideology, the economy or political rights to examine the evidence. This erudite and stimulating book offers fresh resolutions of disputed issues in well known texts such as Homer's Iliad and the Politics of Aristotle, and new explorations of some less familiar material, notably Plato's Laws, Aristotle's Eudemiau Ethics, Stoic political theory and Cicero's Republic
Plato political philosophy by Malcolm Schofield ( )
15 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 972 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this general account of Plato's political thought, a leading scholar of ancient Greek philosophy explores its key themes: education, democracy and its shortcomings, the role of knowledge in government, utopia and the idea of community, money and its grip on the psyche, ideological uses of religion. Between them these define what Plato considered to be the fundamental challenges for politics. All remain live issues. On all of them Plato took radical and uncomfortable positions." "Assuming a broad range of readers - with backgrounds in varied fields (politics, philosophy, classics, history) - Malcolm Schofield articulates and analyses Plato's main lines of thought, illustrating them with a liberal use of translated excerpts, and highlighting affinities with modern theorists from Machiavelli and Mill to Rawls and Habermas. Schofield's distinctive approach to Plato's problems constitutes a lucid and accessible guide for those needing an introduction, and at the same time will provide those who know Plato well with much food for thought."--BOOK JACKET

Its international team of distinguished scholars includes historians of law, politics, culture and religion, as well as philosophers. The volume will long remain an accessible and authoritative guide to Greek and Roman thinking about government and community." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0642/2006274510-d.html

The Stoic idea of the city by Malcolm Schofield ( Book )
18 editions published between 1991 and 1999 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Stoic Idea of the City offers a pioneering treatment of the political philosophy of ancient Stoicism. Classical scholar Malcolm Schofield explores the Stoics' notions of natural law and world citizenship, which - as Martha Nussbaum notes in her new foreword - constitute their most important legacy to modern political thought. But Schofield begins by excavating from scattered and underused textual evidence the Platonized conception of erotic love treated by Zeno, founder of the school, as a key principle of political unity. An epilogue specially written for this edition further enhances this text as a standard work on Stoicism."--BOOK JACKET

Hegel's verdict on the apolitical character of philosophy in the Hellenistic age is challenged in these essays, originally presented at the sixth meeting of the Symposium Hellenisticum
Gorgias, Menexenus, Protagoras by Plato ( Book )
6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Presented in the popular Cambridge Texts format are three early Platonic dialogues in a new English translation by Tom Griffith that combines elegance, accuracy, freshness and fluency. Together they offer strikingly varied examples of Plato's critical encounter with the culture and politics of fifth and fourth century Athens. Nowhere does he engage more sharply and vigorously with the presuppositions of democracy. The Gorgias is a long and impassioned confrontation between Socrates and a succession of increasingly heated interlocutors about political rhetoric as an instrument of political power. The short Menexenus contains a pastiche of celebratory public oratory, illustrating its self-delusions. In the Protagoras, another important contribution to moral and political philosophy in its own right, Socrates takes on leading intellectuals (the 'sophists') of the later fifth century BC and their pretensions to knowledge. The dialogues are introduced and annotated by Malcolm Schofield, a leading authority on ancient Greek political philosophy."--BOOK JACKET
Aristotle, Plato and Pythagoreanism in the first century BC : new directions for philosophy by Malcolm Schofield ( Book )
10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book presents an up-to-date overview of the main new directions taken by ancient philosophy in the first century BC, a period in which the dominance exercised in the Hellenistic age by Stoicism, Epicureanism and Academic Scepticism gave way to a more diverse and experimental philosophical scene. Its development has been much less well understood, but here a strong international team of leading scholars of the subject reconstruct key features of the changed environment. They examine afresh the evidence for some of the central Greek thinkers of the period, as well as illuminating Cicero's engagement with Plato both as translator and in his own philosophising. The intensity of renewed study of Aristotle's Categories and Plato's Timaeus is an especially striking outcome of their discussions. The volume will be indispensable for scholars and students interested in the history of Platonism and Aristotelianism"--

"Jonathan Barnes examines Aristotle's scientific researches, his discoveries in logic and his metaphysical theories, his work in psychology and in ethics and politics, and his ideas about art and poetry, placing his teachings in their historical context."--Publisher description
