Abstract

The book inquires into Aristotle’s claim that of the four kinds of change that exist, locomotion is the most fundamental and important kind. In a first step, the author shows that the arguments for the thesis of locomotion’s priority play a crucial role in the argument of Physics VIII and for the understanding of Aristotle’s philosophy of nature in general. The main focus of the book lies on the thorough and careful reconstruction and analysis of the arguments Aristotle presents in Physics VIII.

Abstract

"Dionysos, with his following of satyrs and women, was a major theme in a big part of the figure painted pottery in 500-300 B.C. Athens. As an original testimonial of their time, the imagery on these vases convey what this god meant to his worshippers. It becomes clear that he was not only appropriate for wine, wine indulgence, ecstasy and theatre. Rather, he was presenton many, both happy and sad, occasions. The vase painters have emphasized different aspects of Dionysos for their customers inside and outside of Athens, depending on the political and cultural situation."
