Making Room For Matter, David Ebrey Apr 2012

Making Room For Matter, David Ebrey

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

Socrates rejects material causes in the Phaedo, in sharp contrast to Aristotle, who gives them a fundamental role in his account of the natural world. Why do they disagree about this? It is sometimes suggested that Socrates rejects material causation because he requires causes to be rational or to be teleological. You might think, then, that Aristotle can have material causes because he does not have any such requirement. In this paper I argue for a different explanation. Plato and Aristotle ultimately disagree about material causation because of a difference in their causal frameworks: Socrates thinks that each change has ...


The Republic’S Reluctant Rulers, Christopher Buckels Apr 2012

The Republic’S Reluctant Rulers, Christopher Buckels

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

I submit that these questions are intricately related, so ...

Homeopoesis: Aristotle On Nutrition And Growth, John Thorp Feb 2012

Homeopoesis: Aristotle On Nutrition And Growth, John Thorp

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

This paper seeks to understand how Aristotle’s ideas about nutrition avoid cancerous growth: why does the flesh that is distilled out of the digestive process, and that travels out to the various parts of the body, not just produce formless growth? De Anima II.5 gives a purely formal reply ("limit and ratio:") Using GA and GC I try to put together Aristotle's schematic account of the process.
