The Theodicy Of The Timaeus, Thomas M. Robinson Dec 1990

The Theodicy Of The Timaeus, Thomas M. Robinson

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

I suggest that any explanation of the Demiurge that has a chance of being correct must take into account the fact that he is invariably described in non-contingent terms, and the entities to which many have wished to reduce him (the world’s soul, or the rationality within it) in invariably and unambiguously contingent terms. This holds true despite Timaeus’s readiness to speak without apparent qualm of the Demiurge as either a father or a craftsman or both, or even - after the manner of Anaxagoras - to talk of him on occasion simply as Reason; whatever the variants in the ...

The Philosophical Economy Of Plato's Psychology: Common Concepts In The Timaeus, Dorothea Aline Frede Dec 1990

The Philosophical Economy Of Plato's Psychology: Common Concepts In The Timaeus, Dorothea Aline Frede

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

Plato's insistence that the eternal immobile model is “the real thing” and the mobile world only an image is to stress the sincerity of his conviction that the intelligible pattern, the unchangeable network of principles, must be the foundation of the physical reality. Only because there is such a fundamentum in re can we have concepts that allow us to understand and explain the world. Without such really existing concepts our thinking would be nothing, it would be a groping for stability in a changing world that could at best provide similarities without any fix point to determine their ...


Seneca And The Stoic View Of Suicide, Walter Englert Dec 1990

Seneca And The Stoic View Of Suicide, Walter Englert

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

will present a summary of the Stoic doctrine on suicide before Seneca, followed by an analysis of Seneca’s own views. Our sources on Stoic views of suicide before Seneca are meager. But they allow us to construct a coherent Stoic theory of suicide, and in Seneca we see the theory fleshed out. Rist is right to point out that we find a connection between suicide and libertas for the first time in Seneca, but wrong to suppose that it is inconsistent with earlier Stoic teaching, pathological, or based on a hatred of life.8 Seneca’s views are consistent ...

This, the fifth in a series on the history and ambitions of punctuation, describes the first vigorous manifestation of logical pointing.

Land Rights And Aboriginal Sovereignty, Janna Thompson Sep 1990

Land Rights And Aboriginal Sovereignty, Janna Thompson

Aboriginal Policy Research Consortium International (APRCi)

In 1988 Australia celebrated two hundred years of European settlement. At its annual conference the Australian Division of the Australasian Association of Philosophy marked the occasion with a symposium on claims by Aboriginal p_eople for compensation arising out of that settlement. The two papers below were presented at the symposium and were subsequently accepted for publication by the previous Editor. Though they are appearing well after the bicentennial events, the issues they address remain topical both in Australia, in New Zealand which in 1990 is celebrating its founding one hundred and fifty years ago with the signing of the Treaty ...
