Paideia : the ideals of Greek culture by Werner Jaeger( Book )

284 editions published between 1933 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 3,204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paideia, the shaping of Greek character through a union of civilization, tradition, literature, and philosophy is the basis for Jaeger's evaluation of Hellenic culture. Volume I describes the foundation, growth, and crisis of Greek culture during the archaic and classical epochs, ending with the collapse of the Athenian empire. The second and third volumes of the work deal with the intellectual history of ancient Greece in the Age of Plato, the 4th century B.C.--the age in which Greece lost everything that is valued in this world--state, power, liberty--but still clung to the concept of paideia. As its last great poet, Menander summarized the primary role of this ideal in Greek culture when he said: "The possession which no one can take away from man is paideia."

Metaphysics by Aristotle( Book )

48 editions published between 1957 and 2020 in 7 languages and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aristotle, great Greek philosopher, researcher, reasoner, and writer, born at Stagirus in 384 BCE, was the son of Nicomachus, a physician, and Phaestis. He studied under Plato at Athens and taught there (367-347); subsequently he spent three years at the court of a former pupil, Hermeias, in Asia Minor and at this time married Pythias, one of Hermeias's relations. After some time at Mitylene, in 343-2 he was appointed by King Philip of Macedon to be tutor of his teen-aged son Alexander. After Philip's death in 336, Aristotle became head of his own school (of 'Peripatetics'), the Lyceum at Athens. Because of anti-Macedonian feeling there after Alexander's death in 323, he withdrew to Chalcis in Euboea, where he died in 322. Nearly all the works Aristotle prepared for publication are lost; the priceless ones extant are lecture-materials, notes, and memoranda (some are spurious). They can be categorized as follows: I Practical: Nicomachean Ethics; Great Ethics (Magna Moralia); Eudemian Ethics; Politics; Economics (on the good of the family); On Virtues and Vices. II Logical: Categories; Analytics (Prior and Posterior); Interpretation; Refutations used by Sophists; Topica. III Physical: Twenty-six works (some suspect) including astronomy, generation and destruction, the senses, memory, sleep, dreams, life, facts about animals, etc. IV Metaphysics: on being as being. V Art: Rhetoric and Poetics. VI Other works including the Constitution of Athens; more works also of doubtful authorship. VII Fragments of various works such as dialogues on philosophy and literature; and of treatises on rhetoric, politics and metaphysics."--Publisher description

Contre Eunome by Gregory( Book )

28 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contre Eunome II: "Le 'Contre Eunome II' de Grégoire de Nysse a connu un destin singulier. Pièce essentielle de la réfutation de l'' Apologie de l'apologie' d'Eunome, il a été relégué à la fin du 'Contre Eunome III'. Cette marginalisation ne rend cependant pas justice au grand intérêt du traité, mais peut s'expliquer par la complexité des questions abordées : Grégoire y traite en effet du langage en faisant preuve d'une grande originalité. Il s'intéresse au rôle de la conceptualisation, à l'origine du langage humain, à la nature du langage biblique, au dynamisme des mots pour exprimer toujours mieux ce que découvre la pensée. Ces considérations visent à réfuter Eunome dont le système est fondé sur une analyse du langage. Cet ouvrage mérite de retenir l'attention de ceux qui étudient, outre la théologie, l'herméneutique biblique et la philosophie du langage."--
