Spinoza in English,/i is the first bibliography to document the entire 300-year record of books, monographs, dissertations and articles in English on Benedict Spinoza, as well as all translations of his works into English. Arranged alphabetically by author or editor, and internally cross-referenced in the case of anthologies and 'replies', this bibliography cites its own sources where appropriate and, in many cases, provides details on how to obtain out-of-print titles and unpublished dissertations. Additionally, it restores or corrects a good deal of earlier bibliographic detail and, beginning with titles from the mid-1800s, presents the citations in a uniform style. This second edition adds hundreds of citations, including dozens of titles hitherto overlooked, thus bringing the total to nearly 2700 on the main level (with hundreds of secondary references to later editions and reprints). It also provides an index and, occasionally, an abstract when the author's title inadequately describes the contents. As the only source of its kind, this bibliography is an indispensable reference tool for research libraries and individual scholars concerned with the life and works of Spinoza. Wayne Boucher's introduction is augmented by a preface by Professor Manfred Walther. --the most complete bibliography of works in English on Spinoza --enlarged, corrected and improved from first edition with numbered entries --uniquely comprehensive, current and authoritative --numbered entries and subject/title index for easy reference

The Emotions of the Ancient Greeks

Studies in Aristotle and Classical Literature

It is generally assumed that whatever else has changed about the human condition since the dawn of civilization, basic human emotions - love, fear, anger, envy, shame - have remained constant. David Konstan, however, argues that the emotions of the ancient Greeks were in some significant respects different from our own, and that recognizing these differences is important to understanding ancient Greek literature and culture. With The Emotions of the Ancient Greeks, Konstan reexamines the traditional assumption that the Greek terms designating the emotions correspond more or less to those of today. Beneath the similarities, there are striking discrepancies. References to Greek 'anger' or 'love' or 'envy,' for example, commonly neglect the fact that the Greeks themselves did not use these terms, but rather words in their own language, such as orgê and philia and phthonos, which do not translate neatly into our modern emotional vocabulary. Konstan argues that classical representations and analyses of the emotions correspond to a world of intense competition for status, and focused on the attitudes, motives, and actions of others rather than on chance or natural events as the elicitors of emotion. Konstan makes use of Greek emotional concepts to interpret various works of classical literature, including epic, drama, history, and oratory. Moreover, he illustrates how the Greeks' conception of emotions has something to tell us about our own views, whether about the nature of particular emotions or of the category of emotion itself.

Magna Moralia

Mit diesem Band liegt neben der Nikomachischen und der Eudemischen die dritte Version der Ethik des Aristoteles vor. Im Unterschied zu den beiden anderen Ethiken geht es hier um eine Tugend- und Güterlehre, nicht um ein umfassendes Konzept einer Eudämonie. Über die zeitliche Reihenfolge der ethischen Texte des Aristoteles besteht bisher keine Einigkeit. Somit schien es dem Bearbeiter zweckmäßig, Satz für Satz der Gedankendarstellung nachzugehen und auf diese Weise den ersten vollständigen Kommentar zu schaffen. Er kommt zu dem Schluss, dass die "Magna Moralia" nicht als nacharistotelische Kompilation aus Nikomachischer und Eudemischer Ethik begriffen werden könne, sie sich auch nicht zeitlich als "Mittlere Ethik" einreihen lasse, sondern die früheste Skizze des Aristoteles selbst sei. Wenn irgendwo, so ist also innerhalb der Ethik die Möglichkeit gegeben, Aristoteles sukzessive am Werk zu sehen.

The Greek poet Pindar (c. 520-440 BC) wrote odes honouring the victors of Greek sporting festivals such as the Olympic Games. They have long been a source of curiosity to scholars, particularly since they appear to mention the victor only in passing. This book, using the methodologyof Charles S. Peirce s semioticsand byreconstructing the cultural historical setting, reveals that this impression is misleading: in songs with a coherent and meaningful structure, Pindar uses elaborate sporting metaphors to praise the victorsexuberantly and presents them as present-day heroes."

Behemoth oder Das Lange Parlament

Dem biblischen Seeungeheuer Leviathan, das in Hobbes gleichnamigem Hauptwerk für die Allmacht des absolutistischen Staates steht, stellt der Autor in dieser Schrift, die aufgrund eines königlichen Druckverbots erst posthum erscheinen konnte, das Landungeheuer Behemoth aus der jüdischen Mythologie gegenüber. The Long Parliament bestand im Gegensatz zum Short Parliament, das nur 22 Tage, beginnend am 13. April 1640, tagte, offi ziell von 1640 bis 1660. Dies ist die Periode, die Hobbes in seinem Behemoth behandelt. Während der Leviathan systematisch erarbeitet, welche Bedingungen für einen funktionierenden Staat erfüllt sein müssen, diskutiert der Behemoth die Gründe für den durch Aufruhr und Bürgerkrieg herbeigeführten Verfall des englischen Staates. Behemoth or the Long Parliament steht als Chiffre für Anarchie und Aufl ösung staatlicher Gewalt. Titel und Inhalt der Schrift scheinen das bewusst gewählte Gegenbild zum konstruktiven Staatsentwurf des Leviathan zu bilden, und in der Tat sind beide Werke in engem Zusammenhang zu lesen. Der Behemoth ist in Dialogform verfasst. Hobbes geht es darum, die Gründe zu verstehen, die zur Aufl ösung des englischen Gemeinwesens geführt haben, aber er verfolgt auch Fragen nach einer erfolgreichen politischen Erziehung, die seiner Ansicht nach vom Souverän geleistet werden muss. In seinem einleitenden Essay beleuchtet der Herausgeber neben der verwickelten Editionsgeschichte ausführlich den Gedankengang und den historischen und philosophischen Hintergrund dieses wichtigen Hobbes'schen Werks.
