18: Proceedings of the Boston Area Colloquium in Ancient Philosophy: Volume XVIII (2002) (Proceedings of the Boston Area Colloquium (Paperback)) by Professor John J Cleary



This volume contains papers and commentaries originally presented to the Boston Area Colloquium in Ancient Philosophy during the 2001-2 academic year. Four papers concern Platonic texts. Three explore Socratic piety, elenchos, and maieutic in Euthyphro, Meno, and Theaetetus respectively. More is involved, but distinguishing between Socrates and Plato, their ideas and methods, forms a common thread. The fourth paper casts a wider net in discussing the nature of life in Plato in relation to Homer and others. Two papers study topics in Aristotle, moral considerability in the discussion of friendship and the aporematic conception of inquiry. The last two papers bring in NeoPlatonists, exploring Augustine's appropriation of Platonic grades of virtue and Proclus's reconsideration of Aristotelian motion.
