Ways of Life in Classical Political Philosophy; Papers of the 3rd Meeting of the Collegium politicum, Madrid


Ways of Life in Classical Political Philosophy; Papers of the 3rd Meeting of the Collegium politicum, Madrid. Edited by: Lisi, Francesco; Brisson, Luc; Ferber, Rafael; Rossetti, Livio; Rowe, Christopher (2004). St. Augustin: Academia Verlag.

Abstract

The present volume collects 13 papers presented on the occasion of the third meeting of the Collegium Politicum; these papers represent the different approaches that now coexist in the Aristotelian scholarship. An ample overview of the status quaestionis precedes the volume.
Three contributions introduce different aspects of the wider field in which Aristotle’s position arises: J.-M. Betrand considers the topic of drunkenness, related to the life of enjoyment and pleasure, in the rhetoric and philosophical writings of the fourth century B.C. J.-P. Pradeau concentrates on the same topic in Plato’s criticism of democracy. In the last contribution of this introductory part, M. Vegetti focuses on another sort of life in the practice of the Platonic Academy: the political life, which longs for might and power.

The seven papers of the central part are devoted to Aristotle’s thought. Luc Brisson compares Plato’s and Aristotle’s theory on contemplation. Francisco L. Lisi criticizes Rowe’s lecture of EN I 7 and the inclusive interpretation of the passage. Christopher Rowe replies to him, to S. Broadie and to R. Kraut about happiness and the best life in Aristotle’s writings on practical philosophy. Ada Neschke-Hentschke critiques P. Pellegrin’s (1990) interpretation of the structure of the Politics. Silvia Campese writes about the ‘economic’ bioi in the first Book of the Politics, while Silvia Gastaldi and Lucio Bertelli present a detailed discussion of Aristotle’s position about the best life in Pol. VII.

The last part of this volume is dedicated to the reception of the philosophical ideal of the best life. Guido Cappelli analyses the debate in the Italian Humanism of the fifteenth century, and Francesco Gregorio studies the reception of the motive of the three ways of human life in Leo Strauss and Hannah Arendt.
