The field of ancient Greek ethics is increasingly emerging as a major branch of philosophical enquiry, and students and scholars of ancient philosophy will find this Companion to be a rich and invaluable guide to the themes and movements which characterised the discipline from the Pre-Socratics to the Neo-Platonists. Several chapters are dedicated to the central figures of Plato and Aristotle, and others explore the ethical thought of the Stoics, the Epicureans, the Skeptics, and Plotinus. Further chapters examine important themes that cut across these schools, including virtue and happiness, friendship, elitism, impartiality, and the relationship between ancient eudaimonism and modern morality. Written by leading scholars and drawing on cutting-edge research to illuminate the questions of ancient ethics, the book will provide students and specialists with an indispensable critical overview of the full range of ancient Greek ethics.

The Lost World of Scripture

Ancient Literary Culture and Biblical Authority

2014 Readers' Choice Awards Honorable Mention Preaching's Preacher's Guide to the Best Bible Reference for 2014 (Scripture/Hermeneutics) From John H. Walton, author of the bestselling Lost World of Genesis One, and D. Brent Sandy, author of Plowshares and Pruning Hooks, comes a detailed look at the origins of scriptural authority in ancient oral cultures and how they inform our understanding of the Old and New Testaments today. Stemming from questions about scriptural inerrancy, inspiration and oral transmission of ideas, The Lost World of Scripture examines the process by which the Bible has come to be what it is today. From the reasons why specific words were used to convey certain ideas to how oral tradition impacted the transmission of biblical texts, the authors seek to uncover how these issues might affect our current doctrine on the authority of Scripture. "In this book we are exploring ways God chose to reveal his word in light of discoveries about ancient literary culture," write Walton and Sandy. "Our specific objective is to understand better how both the Old and New Testaments were spoken, written and passed on, especially with an eye to possible implications for the Bible s inspiration and authority."

The Cambridge Companion to Plato

Author: Richard Kraut

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 9780521436106

Category: Philosophy

Page: 560

View: 2519

Plato stands as the fount of our philosophical tradition, being the first Western thinker to produce a body of writing that touches upon a wide range of topics still discussed by philosophers today. In a sense he invented philosophy as a distinct subject, for although many of these topics were discussed by his intellectual predecessors and contemporaries, he was the first to bring them together by giving them a unitary treatment. This volume contains fourteen new essays discussing Plato's views about knowledge, reality, mathematics, politics, ethics, love, poetry, and religion. There are also analyses of the intellectual and social background of his thought, the development of his philosophy throughout his career, the range of alternative approaches to his work, and the stylometry of his writing.

"Paul Cartledge hat ein Weltklasse-Team zusammengebracht, welches das Bildmaterial als integralen Bestandteil der Darstellung behandelt" (Oliver Taplin). Dieses Buch will die antike griechische Kultur in ihrer ganzen Vielfalt darstellen und den Glanz Griechenlands von der Antike bis in unsere Zeit vor Augen führen. 300 meist farbige Abbildungen sind das Herzstück dieser Kultur- und Mentalitätsgeschichte, einer Übersetzung aus der renommierten Reihe "Cambridge Illustrated History". Die Abbildungen sind sorgfältig ausgewählt und ausführlich kommentiert. Zusammen mit historischen Karten, Fallbeispielen und "Schaukästen" machen Sie die vielen Facetten der griechischen Geschichte auf unterhaltende und faszinierende Weise anschaulich. Die neun britischen und amerikanischen Wissenschaftler schildern nicht nur die Geschichte der Kriege und der großen Kulturleistungen, sondern auch die Geschichte des alltäglichen und festtäglichen Lebens, der sozialen, wirtschaftlichen und umweltbedingten Aspekte der griechischen Kultur. So wird zum einen die enorme kulturbildende Kraft der Griechen deutlich, die die Entfaltung der westlichen Zivilisation bis heute bestimmt hat, zum anderen sind die Grenzen und die Fremdheit dieser Kultur aus heutiger Sicht eindrucksvoll nachzuvollziehen. Zeittafel, Glossar, ein Who's Who der wichtigsten Persönlichkeiten u.a. komplettieren diesen Band, der auch für den schulischen und universitären Unterricht Material in großer Fülle zu bieten hat.
