Greek Philosophy in the New Millennium : Essays in Honour of Thomas M. Robinson


Greek Philosophy in the New Millennium : Essays in Honour of Thomas M. Robinson. Edited by: Brisson, Luc; Rossetti, Livio; Ferber, Rafael; Rowe, Christopher (2004). St. Augustin: Academia Verlag.

Abstract

While appearing to be a conventional Festschrift in honour of a reputed Professor of Philosophy at the University of Toronto, this book includes a unique collection of essays by a number of distinguished scholars, from an impressive number of countries, on current changes in the field of ancient philosophy (some might say resistance to change) as globalization profoundly affects local culture and the education of new generations seems likely to be transformed in significant ways. The essays have been organized largely in geographical order, starting with Professor Robinson’s adopted country, Canada, and ending with the linguistic community (and geographical area) more strictly linked with what we have become accustomed to calling ‘ancient philosophy’: modern Greece. Through our journey, which takes us through the Americas, the Pacific area (Australia, Japan, China) and Europe, readers will be pleased to discover how a widening interest in ancient philosophy has recently spread to a remarkable number of ‘new’ countries, some of which have traditionally been thought of as on the margins of (if not strictly outside) the established scholarly community. Although this work is a tribute to a well-known and admired scholar, it is also meant to interest the entire scholarly community of ancient (primarily Greek) philosophy, philosophers and classicists alike: Readers wanting to inform themselves about the status of ancient philosophy in a changing and multifaceted world will find here very much to discover.
