Abstract

Ao pôr em paralelo o percurso biográfico de Alcibíades e de Coriolano, Plutarco escolheu duas figuras, uma grega, outra romana, de contextos históricos não muito similares. Alcibíades pertence ao contexto de uma democracia em crise, numa Hélade em vésperas de se lançar na guerra civil generalizada ou já envolvida nela – a Guerra do Peloponeso – em que, inclusivamente, o velho inimigo persa era visto como aliado possível para ajudar a enfraquecer a facção grega contrária. Coriolano, por seu turno, pertence aos primórdios da República, numa Roma pré-helénica. A figura do primeiro tem contornos históricos nítidos, enquanto na do segundo se esbatem a História e os contornos lendários. Ambos ficaram órfãos demasiado cedo, na infância, distinguindo-se Alcibíades pelo refinamento da sua educação. Mas a essa paideia refinada corresponde uma capacidade camaleónica (a imagem é de Plutarco) de adaptação

Abstract

This book presents a collection of selected essays from the papers presented to the international conference on Plato’s Parmenides on the occasion of the 2nd Meeting of the Mediterranean Section of the International Plato Society (Coimbra, 14-16 June 2012). It opens with an introduction to the different approaches to this most challenging dialogue taken by the contributors of the volume. Samuel Scolnicov helpfully brings together the theoretical and ethical dimensions of the Parmenides. Luc Brisson, Néstor Cordero, Maurizio Migliori, Franco Trabattoni, Francesco Fronterotta, Mario Jorge Carvalho, J.D.Bares Partal, Beatriz Bossi, Francesca Pizzuti and Gabriele Cornelli present an in-depth analysis and commentary of the main topics of the first and second part of the dialogue from different points of view. The book also includes further clarification of interpretation problems and the reception of this dialogue in late Antiquity and Renaissance.

Abstract

By celebrating the 2400th anniversary of the founding of Plato's Academy, this book gathers ten contributions concerning the founder of the Academy, his school and work, as well as the influence Plato exerted on later authors (from antiquity to the present), and the reception of his legacy throughout history.The themes explored in the five initial chapters focus on the analysis of various topics treated in individual Pla -tonic dialogues. To begin, the Phaedrusis considered for its significance regarding the philosophical conception of a “supra-heavenly place”. The next two chapters reflect upon Platonic paideia, first on the pedagogical princi-ples of The Statesman, and next on the analysis of sports activities in The Republic and inThe Laws. The dramatic and philosophical implications arising out of the multicultural origins of the characters in The Laws are brought into perspective alongside an insight drawn from the banquet, considered a model on which a philosophic com-munity can be constituted. The five remaining chapters have a general focus on Plato’s presence in later authors (from Neoplatonism to contemporary literature), as well the influence of the Academy.

Abstract

Despite its tensions and contradictions, the various discourses on globalization hint at a desire to build a space and time for encounters between worlds and cultures, through the persistence of a dialogue that shortens the distances, but respects the differences. A considerable part of the political, cultural, urban, linguistic shape of the Western world drew inspirations and solutions from the experience of poleis and cosmopoleis of the Ancient World. On the other hand, mobility may even be perceived as a characteristic feature of Luso-Brazilian culture, from the Portuguese Discoveries and their cultural production in the early stages of Jesuit literature in Brazil, especially in José de Anchieta, down to António Vieira, Machado de Assis, Guimarães Rosa, among others. Therefore, the presence and the different hues respecting the topic of mobility and of old cosmopoleis in the reception of Classical Antiquity in Portuguese literature are as well a central theme of the volume.

Abstract

Identity is constructed through the interaction between the ‘I’ and the numerous ‘others’ that constitute its world. From this plurivocal dialogue results a diversity of ways of acting and thinking, responsible not only for the creation of norms but also for passing beyond the transmitted code, that is, for transgression. It is the constant updating of this dynamic correlation between norm and transgression that gives rise to progress (moving forwards) of the ‘I’, both individual and collective. In it lies the very nature of creative activity, the fascination for discovery, the impulse and need for revolution.
