Mental Conflict by A. W. Price
Book DescriptionAs earthquakes expose geological faults, so mental conflict reveals tendencies to rupture within the mind. Dissension is rife not only between people but also within them, for each of us is subject to a contrariety of desires, beliefs, motivations, aspirations. What image are we to form of ourselves that might best enable us to accept the reality of discord, or achieve the ideal of harmony? Greek philosophers offer us a variety of pictures and structures intended to capture the actual and the possible either within a reason that fails to be resolute, or within a split soul that houses a play of forces. Reflection upon them alerts us to the elusiveness at once of mental reality, and of the understanding by which we hope to capture and transform it. Studying in turn the treatments of Mental Conflict in Socrates, Plato, Aristotle and the Stoics, A.W. Price demonstrates how the arguments of the Greeks are still relevant to philosophical discussion today.

Books By Author A. W. Price
Virtue and Reason in Plato and Aristotle, Paperback (February 2015)
A.W. Price explores the views of Plato and Aristotle on how virtue of character and practical reasoning enable agents to achieve eudaimonia-the state of living or acting well. He provides a full philosophical analysis and argues that the perennial question of action within human life is central to the reflections of these ancient philosophers.
Contextuality in Practical Reason, Hardback (March 2008)
A. W. Price explores the varying ways in which context is relevant to our reasoning about what to do. He investigates the role of context in practical inferences, practical judgements, and the ascription of reasons for action. This original, wide-ranging book will reward the attention of philosophers working in ethical theory and related areas.
Mental Conflict, Paperback (November 1994)
Mental conflict is the condition of a divided mind, consciously torn between contrary desires or beliefs. For the Greeks it is a puzzle provocative of theory; they accommodate it with different structurings of the mind's operations. This study features Socrates, Plato, Aristotle and the Stoics.
Love and Friendship in Plato and Aristotle, Paperback (September 1990)» View all books by A. W. Price
An exploration of an idea common to Plato and Aristotle, which unites their treatments of love and friendship, and promises to resolve the old dichotomy between egoism and altruism.
