De aeternitate mundi contra Proclum by John Philoponus ( Book )

Die Schrift 'De aeternitate mundi' des Johannes Philoponos (circa 490 - circa 575), entstanden nach 529, ist die wichtigste und umfangreichste christliche Stellungnahme der Antike, die den Glauben an die Erschaffung der Welt 'aus Nichts' und deren zeitlichen Anfang verteidigt und begründet. Es handelt sich um eine Widerlegung der 18 Argumente des Neuplatonikers Proclus (gestorben 485) für die Ewigkeit der Welt. Mittels wissenschaftlicher Methodik emanzipiert sich christliches Denken in den Debatten der heidnischen Philosophenschule Alexandriens von den Autoritäten Plato und Aristoteles. Die methodische Präzision ist bis dahin unerreicht, die Gesichtspunkte sind häufig neu, als philosophiegeschichtliche Fundgrube ist der Text unerschöpflich. Die Diskussionen um die Ewigkeit der Welt in der arabischen Philosophie und im lateinischen Mittelalter fußen in der Sache weitestgehend auf dieser Schrift. Damit liegt nach dem Kommentar zum biblischen Schöpfungsbericht ('De opificio mundi') nun ein zweites epochales Werk des Johannes Philoponos zum ersten Mal ins Deutsche übersetzt vor. Die ersten beiden Bände, die die Argumente 1-5 enthalten, eröffnen die sechsbändige, sukkzesiv erscheinende Ausgabe

"This text by Philoponus, the sixth-century commentator on Aristotle, is notable for its very informative Introduction to Psychology, which tells us the views of Philoponus, of his teacher and of later Neoplatonists on our psychological capacities and on mind-body relations. There is an unusual account of how reason can infer a universally valid conclusion from a single instance, and there are inherited views on the roles of intellect and perception in concept formation, and on the human ability to make reasoned decisions, celebrated by Aristotle, but here downgraded. Philoponus attacks Galen's view that psychological capacities follow, or result from, bodily chemistry; they merely supervene on that and can be counteracted. He has benefited from Galen's knowledge of the brain and nerves, but also propounds the Neoplatonist belief in tenuous bodies which after death support our irrational souls temporarily, or our reason eternally."--Publisher's website
On Aristotle's "On coming to be and perishing 2.5-11" by John Philoponus ( Book )
8 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It will be of interest to students of ancient philosophy and science (the commentary draws on earlier philosophical and medical texts); of Patristics and Christian theology (it allows comparison of Philoponus' later creationist doctrine with his earlier ideas about generation); of medieval philosophy (there are a number of parallels with Averroes' commentaries on Aristotle's treatise); and to anyone interested in metaphysics of causation, emergence, necessity, and determination."--BOOK JACKET

11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Finally, throughout these seven chapters Philoponus is engaged in a detailed exegesis of Plato's Timaeus that aims to settle a number of familiar interpretive problems, notably how we should properly understand the pre-cosmic state of disorderly motion, and the statement that the visible cosmos is an image of the paradigm. Philoponus's exegetical concerns culminate in chapter 18 with an extensive discussion of Plato's attitude to poetry and myth."--BOOK JACKET
On Aristotle's "On the soul 1.3-5" by John Philoponus ( Book )
6 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In chapter 5, Philoponus endorses Aristotle's rejection of the idea that the soul is particles and of Empedocles's idea that the soul must be made of all four elements in order to know what is made of the same elements."--BOOK JACKET
