Abstract

Entre todos os Comentários sobre a &quot;Ética Nichomacheana&quot; de Aristóteles, o Comentário Jesuíta Coimbra (século XVI), escrito por Manuel de Góis, como parte dos amplamente conhecidos Comentários Jesuítas de Coimbra (1592-1606), tem as suas particularidades. Não é um tratamento completo do título aristotélico, mas as suas nove disputas formam um breve compêndio no qual é possível ver a relevância da Summa theologiae de Tomás de Aquino. Tal como aconteceu com os outros títulos de Coimbra, a Ethica espalhou-se rapidamente pelas Universidades e Colégios europeus, e chegou aos territórios sul-americanos e

Abstract

The volume discusses the notion of space by focusing on the most representative exponents of the Hellenistic schools and explores the role played by spatial concepts in both coeval and later authors who, without specifically thematising these concepts, made use of them in a theoretically original way. Renowned scholars investigate the philosophical significance and bring to light the problematical character of the ancient conceptions of space.

Abstract

Affectivity – especially the emotions – are proved to be a key-point of ethical formation. This book aims at clarifying which thesis the neo-aristotelian Virtue Ethics hold about emotion education, by integrating philosophy of education, philosophy of emotions and moral epistemology. Virtue Ethics, compared to deontology and utilitarianism-consequentialism, offers the more appropriate framework to conceive the relations between education, emotions and ethics. The volume discusses cognitive-evaluative theories of emotions and address the anti-rationalist challenge, based on empirical evidence about how emotions impact on moral judgments. Anti-rationalism, it is argued, is incompatible with the purpose of shaping the emotions looking at our best moral reasons. Then, two Aristotelian educational theses are put forward: all the emotional dispositions – both ‘positive’ and ‘negative’ – should be cultivated, and all the emotional dispositions admit an appropriate moral form.

Abstract

This book focuses on places and instances where Solomon’s legendary biography intersects with those of Jesus Christ and of Aristotle. Solomon is the axis around which this trio revolves, the thread that binds it together. It is based on the premise that there exists a correspondence, both overt and implied, between these three biographies, that has taken shape within a vast, multifaceted field of texts for more than two thousand years.

Abstract

Like the ancient inquiries into the nature of things, contemporary continental realism and materialism, from Deleuze to the Speculative Realists, embraces a commitment to investigate beings, without subordinating it to analyses of language, consciousness, texts or the social. This pensée brute, traditionally known as metaphysics, dares to question the one and the many, the potential and the actual, the material and immaterial and the world itself. This apparent kinship is not merely thematic, since contemporary thinkers explicitly and repeatedly return to the texts and figures of the Greco-Roman world. In this volume, leading philosophers address these varied, volatile, and novel interactions and themselves contribute to reconceiving and redeploying the problems of ancient metaphysics. Alongside this are 2 original and previously unpublished translations of essays by Gilles Deleuze and Pierre Aubenque.

Abstract

Vulnerability is not often associated with virtue. Yet to be vulnerable is central to human experience. In this book, McCoy examines ways in which Greek epic, tragedy, and philosophy have important insights to offer about the nature of human vulnerability and how human beings might better come to terms with their own vulnerability. While studies of Greek heroism and virtue often focus on strength of character, prowess in war, or the achievement of honor for oneself or one’s society, McCoy examines another side to Greek thought that extols the recognition and proper acceptance of vulnerability. McCoy begins with the literary works of Homer’s Iliad, Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex, Oedipus at Colonus and Philoctetes before expanding her analysis to philosophical works. There, she analyzes imagery of wounding in Plato’s Gorgias and Symposium as well as Aristotle’s work on the vulnerability inherent in friendship and an innovative interpretation of tragic catharsis in the Poetics. As much a work of philosophy as of classical textual analysis, McCoy’s work aims at a deeper understanding of the virtues of vulnerability for individuals and societies alike.

Abstract

Este libro contiene el Arte breve de la invención del derecho, la traducción al español de Ars brevis quae est de inventione iuris, la última obra de Ramon Llull dedicada a la aplicación de su Arte al derecho, escrita en 1308. En esta obra, tal y como sostiene Rafael Ramis Barceló en el Estudio Preliminar a la misma, Llull intentó transformar, hasta cierto punto, su Arte en una teoría de la argumentación, adoptando tanto conceptos de la filosofía aristotélica como algunos casos de derecho civil y canónico procedentes del acervo del ius commune. El interés de este tratado luliano radica, entre otras muchas cosas, en la exposición de un método jurídico radicalmente distinto del que cultivaban los legistas y canonistas de su época, y que era capaz de mostrar algunas de las debilidades epistemológicas y argumentativas del saber jurídico y de su enseñanza a comienzos del siglo XIV. = This book contains Arte breve de la invención del derecho, the translation into Spanish of Ars brevis quae est inventione iuris, the last work written by Raimundus Lullus dedicated to the application of his Art to the Law (1308). In this work, according to the Preliminary Study written by Rafael Ramis Barceló, Llull sought to transform, to some extent, his Art on a theory of argumentation, using concepts from the Aristotelian philosophy as some cases of civil and canon law from the ius commune. The interest of this Lullian treatise is based, among other things, on the exhibition of a legal method radically different from the methodology of lawyers and canonists of his time. And Lullus’ method was able to show some of the epistemological and argumentative weaknesses of legal knowledge and of teaching of Law in the early fourteenth century.

Abstract

Die vorliegende Arbeit versucht nun anhand der ausgewählten Beispiele zu zeigen, daß es neben diesem, im weitesten Sinne des Wortes inhaltlich-thematischen Aspekt des Ethos für die Literatur (der durchaus auch eine pragmatische Funktion erfüllt) noch einen wesentlicheren gibt: "Ethos" selbst als eine für die literarische Kunst, den Kunstcharakter, den Wert des literarischen Kunstwerks konstitutive Kategorie; "literarisches Ethos" also nicht als Qualität einer bestimmten gattungsmäßig oder inhaltlich definierten Menge von Texten, sondern als ein Verfahren, das eine ganz bestimmte Art von Kunst in literarischen Texten erzeugen kann, und die in bestimmten Texten fast ausschließlicher Garant dafür ist, daß diese überhaupt als künstlerische Texte (und nicht etwa als journalistische Gebrauchsliteratur) wahrgenommen und geschätzt werden können.

Abstract

" Continuing the analysis of contemporary issues through the lens of ancient theories beyond the themes of Enduring Empire and the award-winning On Oligarchy, On Civic Republicanism explores the enduring relevance of the ancient concepts of republicanism and civic virtue to modern questions about political engagement and identity. Examining both ancient and early modern conceptions of civic republicanism, the contributors respond to the work of thinkers ranging from Plato and Aristotle to Machiavelli, Montesquieu, and Wollstonecraft. A testament to the continuing influence of the concept and the ongoing scholarly debate which surrounds it, On Civic Republicanism addresses fundamental questions regarding democratic participation, liberal democracy, and the public good. Its essays speak to the many ways in which the idea of the republic still challenges us today."
