Philosophical issues in Aristotle's biology by Allan Gotthelf( Book )

17 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristotle's biological works - constituting over 25% of his surviving corpus and for centuries largely unstudied by philosophically oriented scholars - have been the subject of an increasing amount of attention of late. This collection brings together some of the best work that has been done in this area, with the aim of exhibiting the contribution that close study of these treatises can make to the understanding of Aristotle's philosophy. The book is divided into four parts, each with an introduction which places its essays in relation to each other and to the wider issues of the book as a whole. The first part is an overview of the relationship of Aristotle's biology to his philosophy; the other three each concentrate on a set of issues central to Aristotelian study - definition and demonstration; teleology and necessity in nature; and metaph themes such as the unity of matter and form and the nature of substance

Metaethics, egoism, and virtue : studies in Ayn Rand's normative theory by Project Muse( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Metaethics, Egoism, and Virtue" examines central aspects of Ayn Rand's ethical theory. Though her endorsement of ethical egoism is well known—one of her most familiar essay collections is The Virtue of Selfishness—the character of her egoism is not. Leading Rand scholars and specialists in ethical theory address issues such as: the basis of Rand's egoism in a virtue-centered normative ethics; her account of how moral norms in general are themselves based on a fundamental choice by an agent to value his own life; and how her own approach to the foundations of ethics is to be compared and contrasted with familiar approaches in the analytic ethical tradition
On Ayn Rand by Allan Gotthelf( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduces the philosophical thoughts of Ayn Rand with overviews of her life and intellectual development, then covers her objectivist epistemology, giving attention to both her theory of perception and to her original theory of concepts. Other subjects covered include objectivist ethics, Rand's moral theory and politics, and her aesthetics
Teleology, first principles and scientific method in Aristotle's biology by Allan Gotthelf( Book )

18 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristotle's De partibus animalium I ; and, De generatione animalium I (with passages from II. 1-3) by Aristotle( Book )

34 editions published between 1972 and 2003 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In De Partibus Animalium I Aristotle sets out his philosophy of biology, discussing cause, necessity, soul, genus, and species, definition by logical division, and general methodology. In De Generatione Animalium I he applies his hylomorphic philosophy to the problem of animal reproduction. The translation is close, and includes passages from De Generatione Animalium II which complete Aristotle's theory of reproduction. The notes interpret Aristotle's arguments and discuss his views on major issues such as natural teleology."--Publisher's description

A companion to Ayn Rand by Allan Gotthelf( Book )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After an informative introduction and a brief biography of the Russian émigrée who went on to celebrate and defend her vision of the American way of life, each chapter of this Companion focuses on a different aspect of the philosophy she developed, or on a selection of her writings. Several chapters tackle her views on ethics and the metaphysical and epistemological foundations of her philosophy. Others examine Rand's thoughts on political theory, her approach to literature (as both theorist and author), and her acute analysis of contemporary events. Taken together, the chapters provide insight into Rand's distinctive worldview, offering a holistic approach to her body of work in relation to the fields she influenced. This publication provides a thorough, scholarly grounding in Rand's varied and highly original work, offering the most wide-ranging and up-to-date survey available. -- from back cover
The virtue of selfishness : a new concept of egoism by Ayn Rand( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historia animalium by Aristotle( Book )

4 editions published between 1965 and 1993 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Loeb edition of History of Animals is in three volumes. A full index to all ten books is included in Volume Three. D.M. Balme was, at the time of his death, Professor Emeritus of Classics, Queen Mary College, London; his edition of Books VII-X has been prepared for publication by Allan Gotthelf. Aristotle's biological corpus includes not only History of Animals, but also Parts of Animals, Movement of Animals, Progression of Animals, Generation of Animals, and significant parts of On the Soul and Parva Naturalia. Aristotle's general methodology -- "first we must grasp the differences, then try to discover the causes" (HA 1.6) -- is applied to the study of plants by his younger co-worker and heir to his school, Theophrastus: Enquiry into Plants studies differences across the plant kingdom, while De Causis Plantarum studies their causes. In the later ancient world, both Pliny's Natural History and Aelian's On the Characteristics of Animals draw significantly on Aristotle's biological work. The only work by a classical author at all comparable to Aristotle's treatises on animals is Xenophon's On Horses (included in Volume VII of the Loeb edition of Xenophon). -- Jacket

History of animals by Aristotle( Book )

7 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In History of Animals Aristotle analyzes "differences"--In parts, activities, modes of life, and character -- across the animal kingdom, in preparation for establishing their causes, which are the concern of his other zoological works. Over 500 species of animals are considered: shellfish, insects, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals -- including human beings. In books I-IV Aristotle gives a comparative survey of internal and external body parts, including tissues and fluids and of sense faculties and voice. Books V-VI study reproductive methods, breeding habits, and embryogenesis as well as some secondary sex differences. In Books VII-IX, Aristotle examines differences among animals in feeding; in habitat, hibernation, migration; in enmities and sociability; in disposition (including differences related to gender) and intelligence. Here too he describes the human reproductive system, conception, pregnancy, and obstetrics. Book X establishes the female's contribution to generation

Being, nature, and life in Aristotle : essays in honor of Allan Gotthelf by James G Lennox( Book )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume of essays explores major connected themes in Aristotle's metaphysics, philosophy of nature, and ethics, especially themes related to essence, definition, teleology, activity, potentiality, and the highest good. The volume is united by the belief that all aspects of Aristotle's work need to be studied together if any one of the areas of thought is to be fully understood. Many of the papers were contributions to a conference at the University of Pittsburgh entitled 'Being, Nature, and Life in Aristotle', to honor Professor Allan Gotthelf's many contributions to the field of ancient philosophy; a few are contributions from those who were invited but could not attend. The contributors, all longstanding friends of Professor Gotthelf, are among the most accomplished scholars in the field of ancient philosophy today"--
