The Phaedo is acknowledged to be one of Plato's greatest masterpieces, showing him both as a philosopher and as a dramatist at the height of his powers. For its moving account of the execution of Socrates, the Phaedo ranks among the supreme literary achievements of antiquity. It is also a seminal document for many ideas deeply ingrained in western culture, and provides one of the best introductions to Plato's thought. This new edition is a revised version of the Clarendon Press translation, and is eminently suitable for readers new to Plato, and ideal for classroom use, thanks to the provision of Stephanus page and letter numbering.

Und was hat es mit den ganzen seltsamen Fächern wie Bestattungskunde und Gartenbau an ihrer neuen Schule auf sich?

These new translations of the Defence of Socrates, the Euthyphro, and the Crito present Plato's remarkable dramatizations of the momentous events surrounding the trial of Socrates in 399 BC, on charges of irreligion and corrupting the young. They form a dramatic and thematic sequence, raising fundamental questions about the basis of moral, religious, legal, and political obligation. The introduction provides a stimulating philosophical and historical analysis of these texts, complemented by useful explanatory notes and an index of names.

The Roots of Plato's Philosophy

Plato did not create his philosophy ex nihilo, but rather drew on four centuries of literary production in epic and lyric poetry, on ethnography and historiography, tragedy and comedy, medical and mathematical research, oratory and rhetorical theory, as well as on Presocratic philosophy. Words & Ideas offers a study of Plato's philosophical language against this cultural background, retracing to their origins the history and development of the key terms of the Theory of Forms as presented in the Phaedo. 'Form' or 'idea', 'ousia' or 'being', 'participation', 'presence' and 'community' are among the concepts investigated. The aim is to determine both the connotations of Plato's philosophical terms and the precise historical and philosophical contexts on which Plato drew in the formulation of his thoughts. In tracing the roots of Plato's philosophy, Words & Ideas demarcates afresh Plato's position regarding the protagonists of pre-Socratic philosophy: Parmenides and the Eleatics, Anaxagoras and Diogenes of Apollonia, Leucippus and Democritus, Philolaus and the Pythagoreans. This identifcation of his sources allows us, in many cases for the first time, to judge what in the arguments of the dialogues is Plato's own contribution and what is there only as part of a philosophical or pre-philosophical inheritance.

Analytic Islamic Philosophy

This book is an introduction to Islamic Philosophy, beginning with its Medieval inception, right through to its more contemporary incarnations. Using the language and conceptual apparatus of contemporary Anglo-American ‘Analytic’ philosophy, this book represents a novel and creative attempt to rejuvenate Islamic Philosophy for a modern audience. It adopts a ‘rational reconstructive’ approach to the history of philosophy by affording maximum hermeneutical priority to the strongest possible interpretation of a philosopher’s arguments while also paying attention to the historical context in which they worked. The central canonical figures of Medieval Islamic Philosophy – al-Kindi, al-Farabi, Avicenna, al-Ghazali, Averroes – are presented chronologically along with an introduction to the central themes of Islamic theology and the Greek philosophical tradition they inherited. The book then briefly introduces what the author collectively refers to as the ‘Pre-Modern’ figures including Suhrawardi, Mulla Sadra, and Ibn Taymiyyah, and presents all of these thinkers, along with their Medieval predecessors, as forerunners to the more modern incarnation of Islamic Philosophy: Political Islam.

Old World and New World Perspectives in Environmental Philosophy

Transatlantic Conversations

This is the first collection of essays in which European and American philosophers explicitly think out their respective contributions and identities as environmental thinkers in the analytic and continental traditions. The American/European, as well as Analytic/Continental collaboration here bears fruit helpful for further theorizing and research. The essays group around three well-defined areas of questioning all focusing on the amelioration/management of environmentally, historically and traditionally diminished landscapes. The first part deals with differences between New World and the Old World perspectives on nature and landscape restoration in general, the second focuses on the meaning of ecological restoration of cultural landscapes, and the third on the meaning of the wolf and of wildness. It does so in a way that the strengths of each philosophical school—continental and analytic—comes to the fore in order to supplement the other’s approach. This text is open to educated readers across all disciplines, particularly those interested in restoration/adaptation ecology, the cultural construction of place and landscape, the ongoing conversation about wilderness, the challenges posed to global environmental change. The text may also be a gold mine for doctoral students looking for dissertation projects in environmental philosophy that are inclusive of continental and analytic traditions. This text is rich in innovative approaches to the questions they raise that are reasonably well thought out. The fact that the essays in each section really do resonate with one another directly is also intellectually exciting and very helpful in working out the full dimensions of each question raised in the volume.

Pindar, geboren 522/518 v. Chr. bei Theben, hat Chorlyrik überwiegend religiösen Inhalts geschrieben: Hymnen, Paiane und Dithyramben, aber auch Mädchenlieder, Tanzlieder und Trauergesänge. Vollständig erhalten geblieben sind die vier Bücher Siegeslieder (Epinikien), die den strengen Stil mythischer Dichtung mit der Sprache der sportlichen Wettkämpfe verbinden. Mit dieser Verschränkung von aktuellem Anlass, mythischem Hintergrund, überlieferter Lebensweisheit und poetologischer Reflexion werden Spannungsbögen entworfen, die in der antiken wie in der modernen Lyrik einzigartig sind. Bereits in hellenistischer Zeit galt Pindar als der Lyriker schlechthin. Nicht anders sahen ihn die Römer, wobei Horaz in seiner Ode 4,2 warnt, der Versuch, Pindar nachzuahmen, könne leicht wie der Flug des Ikaros mit einer Bruchlandung enden. In Deutschland beginnt die Wirkungsgeschichte mit Klopstock, reicht über Hölderlin und die Dichter des Sturm und Drang, wie den jungen Goethe, hin zu Nietzsche und den George-Kreis. Auch in der Lyrik Ezra Pounds sind Nachklänge der Oden Pindars unverkennbar. Die vorliegende Ausgabe der Siegeslieder bietet neben dem griechischen Text eine Übersetzung, deren Präzision es dem Kenner des Griechischen ermöglicht, sich in den Urtext einzulesen. Pindars Bildwelt wird exakt reproduziert, gewissermaßen "dokumentiert", in einer rhythmisierten Prosa, die eigenständig neben früheren Pindar-Verdeutschungen steht. Die sprachliche Struktur des Originals wird in ihrer harten Fügung bewahrt und nicht einer Umsetzung in das Gewohnte geopfert. Zugleich wird eine Annäherung an eine unserer Zeit gemäße Sprachform erreicht, die dem literarisch Interessierten den Zugang zu Pindar entschließt. Eingehende Analyse zur Deutung und zur Wirkungsgeschichte können zu einem vertieften Verständnis führen.

Die Selbstbetrachtungen des römischen Kaisers Mark Aurel sind die letzte bedeutende Hinterlassenschaft aus der philosophischen Schule der jüngeren Stoa. Maßgebliche Richtschnur für das eigene Denken und Handeln waren ihm die Einordnung in und die Übereinstimmung mit der „Allnatur“. Vernunftleitung und Gemeinwohlorientierung gehören zu den in zahlreichen Wendungen variierten Konstanten der Selbstbetrachtungen, zu denen Mark Aurel auch die Rückwirkungen seines Amtes auf die eigene Person antrieben: „Verkaisere nicht!“
