Dust To Dust: Aristotle's Account Of Generation And Desctruction, Mary Louise Gill Dec 1987

Dust To Dust: Aristotle's Account Of Generation And Desctruction, Mary Louise Gill

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

I believe Aristotle could endorse God’s statement to Adam as reflecting his own theory of generation and destruction. Complex bodies, such as living organisms, are generated out of earth, and to earth they will ultimately return. In this paper I will argue that Aristotle defends a cyclical model of generation and destruction which starts and ends with some simple stuff. I will call the model the ''construction model." The construction model underlies many of Aristotle’s claims about substantial generation and destruction, but he presents the main theory in Metaphysics H.5, a text that is curiously neglected in ...


Ethical Method In Aristotle: Setting Out The Phainomena, Daniel T. Devereux Dec 1987

Ethical Method In Aristotle: Setting Out The Phainomena, Daniel T. Devereux

The Society for Ancient Greek Philosophy Newsletter

My chief objective here is the task of setting out and clarifying the data that we need to consider in giving an account of Aristotle's method in ethics. These data are more complex than is usually supposed. I argue that it may be quite misleading to speak of the method of endoxa as the dialectical method, and that it is a mistake to think that there are close parallels between this method and the concept of dialectic discussed in the Topics.

Combating Theological Ignorance, Donald W. Viney Oct 1987

Combating Theological Ignorance, Donald W. Viney

Faculty Submissions

Theological ignorance is, in large measure, a product of two otherwise positive things: separation of church and state and public funded education up to the secondary level. The result is that students coming into universities are often not taught to think critically or creatively about theological topics. I suggest strategies and resources for dealing with this ignorance through familiarity with the Bible, familiarity with theology and philosophy, and familiarity with issues pertaining to the concept of God.

Warcraft And The Fragility Of Virtue, G. Scott Davis Oct 1987

Warcraft And The Fragility Of Virtue, G. Scott Davis

Religious Studies Faculty Publications

There is much talk currently about virtue and virtues, and this, I suppose, is all to the good. But if the current debate aspires to be more than an academic exercise, it needs to show how discussion of the virtues makes a difference in moral philosophy. Any serious alternative to the status quo should satisfy the following three conditions: It should involve a shift in the fundamental vocabulary of ethics; it should reorder, if not reject, some of the emphases and priorities found in the status quo; and finally, it should issue in a reevaluation of specific acts and policies ...


The Land Of Curiosity, Michael Pritchard Sep 1987

The Land Of Curiosity, Michael Pritchard

Michael Pritchard

Introduction: THE LAND OF CURIOSITY has evolved over the past several years as a result of discussions I have had with groups of 4th, 5th, and 6th graders. It all began many years ago in my daughter's 4th grade class. I wanted the group with whom I met once a week to think about rules. So I wrote a little episode about The Basic Rule. The responses to this episode were used as a basis for another episode, this one dealing with The Golden Rule. Responses to that episode led to yet another one on rules.


Critical Thinking: Problem Solving Or Problem Creating?, Michael Pritchard Sep 1987

Critical Thinking: Problem Solving Or Problem Creating?, Michael Pritchard

Michael Pritchard

Introduction: For some time now I have been puzzling over what we really have in mind when we say that the schools should be doing a better job of helping students develop their critical thinking abilities. Although most educators agree that something should be done, there is no consensus on how to go about it. I suspect that this is partly because there is no consensus on what critical thinking is. I offer no definition. But I do have some reflections that, I hope, will contribute to our understanding of critical thinking.
