Rationality in Greek Thought by Michael Frede

Book Description

Rationality in Greek Thought, a collection of specially written essays by leading international scholars, re-examines ancient ideas of reason and rationality. Conceptions of reason, rationality, and reasonableness have changed considerably over time, and scholars have all too easily projected contemporary ideas of reason onto ancient thought. This tendency has made it impossible for us fully to understand either the central tenets of ancient philosophers like Plato, Aristotle, and the Stoics, or empiricist tendencies in ancient thought. Rationality in Greek Thought examines distinctive aspects of ancient conceptions of reason, sharpening awareness of the considerable conceptual change, and helping to remove a serious obstacle to a full understanding of ancient philosophical texts. At the same time, the essays stimulate a reassessment of our own ideas of reason and rationality, helping us set them in historical context and explore alternatives to them.

Pseudo-Platonic Seventh Letter by Michael Frede Pseudo-Platonic Seventh Letter, Hardback (June 2015)

This volume presents essays and seminars by Myles Burnyeat and Michael Frede, two of the most eminent scholars of ancient philosophy in recent decades, on the fascinating and much-debated Seventh Platonic Letter. They question the authenticity of the letter by showing how its philosophical content conflicts with the Platonic dialogues.

Free Will by Michael Frede Free Will, Paperback (January 2013)

Where does the notion of free will come from? How and when did it develop, and what did that development involve? This title offers an account of the history, the notion of a free will that emerged from powerful assumptions about the relation between divine providence, correctness of individual choice, and self-enslavement due to incorrect choice.

Pagan Monotheism in Late Antiquity by Michael Frede Pagan Monotheism in Late Antiquity, Paperback (November 2001)

Distinguished experts from a range of disciplines with a common interest in late antiquity probe the apparent paradox of pagan monotheism, and reach a better understanding of the historical roots of Christianity.

Aristotle's Metaphysics Lambda by Michael Frede Aristotle's Metaphysics Lambda, Hardback (December 2000)

Scholars of ancient philosophy here present a systematic study of the 12th book of Aristotle's 'Metaphysics'. Lambda, which can be regarded as a self-standing treatise on substance, has been attracting particular attention in recent years, and was chosen as the focus of the 14th Symposium Aristotelicum, from which this volume derives.
