Essays on Plato and Aristotle by J. L Ackrill( )

32 editions published between 1997 and 2007 in English and held by 2,231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

J.L. Ackrill's work on Plato and Aristotle has had a considerable influence upon ancient philosophical studies in the late twentieth century. In his writings the rigour and clarity of contemporary analytic philosophy are brought to bear upon ancient thought; in many cases he has provided the first analytic treatment of a key issue. Gathered now in this volume are the best of Ackrill's essays on the two greatest philosophers of antiquity. Here he examines a wide range of texts and topics - from ethics and logic to epistemology and metaphysics - which continue to be the focus of debate today

Wer auch immer sich für eine Theorie moralischer bzw. humaner Praxis interessiert, findet in der "Nikomachischen Ethik" des Aristoteles eines der wenigen bis heute einschlägigen Grundmodelle. Im Mittelpunkt der ebenso nüchternen wie umsichtigen Analyse stehen u. a. die Begriffe Glück, Tugend, Entscheidung, Klugheit, Unbeherrschtheit, Lust und Freundschaft. Die Aristotelischen Ausführungen sind keineswegs nur von historischem Interesse, sondern üben auch auf die ethische Debatte der Gegenwart entscheidenden Einfluß aus. Die 13 Beiträge dieses Bandes legen in Form eines kooperativen Kommentars, dem Aufbau des Klassikerwerkes folgend, die Grundlagen der Aristotelischen Untersuchung ebenso dar wie den modernen Hintergrund ihrer Rezeption
