Summary:The six studies comprising this volume deal with some fundamental issues in early Greek thought: cosmic evaluation in Anaximander, the theory of opposites from the Pre-Socratics to Plato and Aristotle, thought experimentation in Pre-Socratic thought, the origins of Greek Scepticism among the Sophisists, the prehistory of ""Buridan's Ass"" speculation, and the role of esthesis in Aristotle's theory of science. In each case the early discussion seeks to show how certain ideas bore unexpected fruit during the subsequent development of philosophical thought.

Description
Summary:

Diese Reihe bietet ein Forum für Studien, welche die Texte, Themen und Argumente antiker Philosophen aufgreifen und diskutieren. Sie zeigen, dass philosophische Geschichtsschreibung nicht nur die Theorien antiker Autoren nachzeichnet, sondern deren Argumente auch rekonstruieren, mit aktuellen philosophischen Diskussionen verbinden und damit heutige Diskurse entscheidend bereichern kann.
