On Aristotle's "On the soul 1.1-2" by John Philoponus( Book )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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
Ancient medicine in its socio-cultural context : papers read at the congress held at Leiden University, 13-15 April 1992( Book )

On Aristotle's "On the soul 1.3-5" by John Philoponus( Book )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 221 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text by Philoponus rejects accounts of soul or, as we would say, of mind, that define it as being in motion or in cognitive or physical terms. Chapter 3 considers Aristotle's attack on the idea that the soul is in motion. This was an attack partly on his teacher, Plato, since Plato defines the soul as self-moving. Philoponus agrees with Aristotle's attack, but, probably following Ammonius, he takes Plato's apparently physicalist account of the soul in the Timeus as symbolic; Aristotle's criticism only concerns literalists. What we would call the mind-body relation is the subject of Chapter 4
Ancient histories of medicine : essays in medical doxography and historiography in classical antiquity( Book )

13 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the nature of man by Nemesius( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nemesius' treatise On the Nature of Man is an important text for historians of ancient thought, not only as a much-quarried source of evidence for earlier works now lost, but also as an indication of intellectual life in the late fourth century AD. The author was a Christian bishop; the subject is the nature of human beings and their place in the scheme of created things. The medical works of Galen and the philosophical writings of Plato, Aristotle and the Neoplatonist Porphyry are all major influences on Nemesius; so too the controversial Christian Origen. On the Nature of Man provides the first known compendium of theological anthropology with a Christian orientation and considerably influenced later Byzantine and medieval Latin philosophical theology."--Jacket
Hippocrates in context : papers read at the XIth International Hippocrates Colloquium, University of Newcastle upon Tyne, 27-31 August 2002 by Ph. J. van der Eijk( Book )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Miscellaneous languages and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of papers studies the Hippocratic writings in their relationship to the intellectual, social, cultural and literary context in which they were written. 'Context' includes not only the Greek world, but also the medical thought and practice of other civilisations in the Mediterranean, such as Babylonian and Egyptian medicine. A further point of interest are the relations between the Hippocratic writings and 'non-Hippocratic' medical authors of the fifth and fourth century BCE, such as Diocles of Carystus, Praxagoras of Cos, as well as Plato, Aristotle and Theophrastus. The collection further includes studies of some of the less well-known works in the Hippocratic Corpus, such as Internal Affections, On the Eye, and Prorrheticon. And finally, a number of papers are devoted to the impact and reception of Hippocratic thought in later antiquity and the early modern period."--BOOK JACKET
Greek medicine from Hippocrates to Galen : selected papers by Jacques Jouanna( Book )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume makes available for the first time in English translation a selection of Jacques Jouanna's papers on medicine in the Graeco-Roman world. The papers cover more than thirty years of Jouanna's scholarship and range from the early beginnings of Greek medicine to late antiquity. Part One studies the ways in which Greek medicine is related to its historical and cultural background (politics, rhetoric, drama, religion). Part Two studies a number of salient features of Hippocratic medicine, such as dietetics, theories of health and disease and concepts of psychosomatic interaction, in relation to Greek philosophical thought. Part Three studies the reception of Hippocratic medicine, especially medical ethics and the theory of the four humours, in Galen and in late antiquity

De insomniis ; De divinatione per somnum by Aristotle( Book )

12 editions published in 1994 in German and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Knowledge, text and practice in ancient technical writing( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between theory and practice, in other words between norms indicated in a text and their extra-textual application, is one of the most fascinating issues in the history and theory of science. Yet this aspect has often been taken for granted and never explored in depth. The essays contained in this volume provide a complex and nuanced discussion of this relationship as it emerges in ancient Greek and Roman culture in a number of fields, such as agriculture, architecture, the art of love, astronomy, ethics, mechanics, medicine, pharmacology. The main focus is on the textuality of processes of the transmission of knowledge and its application in various fields. Given that a text always contains complex and destabilising aspects that cannot be reduced to the specific subject matter it discusses, to what extent can and do ancient texts support extra-textual applicability?

Werke in deutscher Übersetzung by Aristoteles( Book )

2 editions published between 1965 and 2006 in German and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hier liegen erstmals in deutscher Übersetzung und Kommentierung Fragmente zu Rhetorik, Poetik und Literaturwissenschaft vor. Von besonderem Interesse sind die Reste verlorener Dialoge in der literarischen Tradition Platons, einige davon lassen sich in Aufbau und Inhalt noch rekonstruieren; sie sind Zeugnisse der lebendigen Auseinandersetzung in der Platonischen Akademie und prägten das Aristoteles-Bild im Hellenismus, als die sog. Lehrschriften nicht in vollem Umfang zugänglich waren. Die zahlreichen Fragmente zur Erklärung der Epen Homers schließlich zeigen Aristoteles als Exegeten der Dichtung und Vorläufer der Alexandrinischen Homer-Philologie. Auch von den Gedichten des Aristoteles erhält man ein lebendiges Bild
