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

16 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 247 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

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

19 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text by Philoponus rejects accounts of soul, or as we would say of mind, which define it as moving, as cognitive, or in 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 physicalistic account of the soul in the Timaeus as symbolic, and Aristotle's criticism only to concern literalists." "What we would call the mind-body relation is the subject of Chapter 4. Plato and Aristotle attacked a physicalistic theory of soul, which suggested it was the blend, or chemical combination of ingredients in the body. Philoponus attacks the theory too, but he allows that ratiocination needs to be accompanied by changes in face and brain, even though, against Alexander, he thinks humans can also exercise the matter-free thought of Aristotle's 'active intellect'." "In Chapter 5, Philoponus endorses Aristotle's rejection of the idea that the soul is particles and of Empedocles' idea that the soul must be made of all four elements in order to know what is made of the same elements. He also rejects, with Aristotle, definitions of the soul as moving or cognitive as ignoring lower forms of life. He finally discusses Aristotle's rejection of Plato's localisation of parts of the soul in parts of the body, but asks if new knowledge of the brain and the nerves does not require some kind of localisation."--BOOK JACKET
Diocles of Carystus : a collection of the fragments with translation and commentary by Diocles( Book )

34 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nemesii Emeseni De natura hominis by Nemesius( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 201 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

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 104 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

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

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 9 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?
