Friendship In Kallipolis, Damian Caluori Jan 2016

Friendship In Kallipolis, Damian Caluori

Damian Caluori

That friends form some sort of unity is one of the remarkable facts about friendship. We identify with our friends in a way in which we do not identify with non-friends. This identification forms the foundation for the distinction that we make between friends and non-friends. Many other facts about friendship are grounded in it - such as the fact that we are willing to help friends in a way that goes beyond what is otherwise demanded by morality or custom. When our friends need someone to help them move to a new apartment, for example, we will help them without ...

Aristoteles Über Leiber Und Leichen, Damian Caluori

Damian Caluori

Aristotle's hylomorphism involves the homonymy principle, which states that living bodies and dead bodies are essentially different. Both John Ackrill and Bernard Williams think that the homonymy principle leads to insoluble problems, especially to the so-called body-body-problem. In this essay I try to show that this problem is soluble through a close analysis of some of Aristotle's different concepts of matter.


Thinking About Friendship: Historical And Contemporary Philosophical Perspectives, Damian Caluori Jan 2016

Thinking About Friendship: Historical And Contemporary Philosophical Perspectives, Damian Caluori

Damian Caluori

It is hard to imagine a good life without friendship. But what precisely makes friendship so valuable? And what is friendship at all? What unites friends and distinguishes them from others? Is the preference we give to friends rationally and morally justifiable? This collection of thirteen new essays on the philosophy of friendship considers such questions. In particular, it offers new interpretations of the answers given by famous classic philosophers such as Plato, Aristotle and Kant and provides fresh answers by leading contemporary philosophers. It is organized around five topics: the nature of friendship, the unity of friendship, friendship and ...

Plotinus On The Soul, Damian Caluori Jan 2016

Plotinus On The Soul, Damian Caluori

Damian Caluori

Plotinus on the Soul is a study of Plotinus' psychology, which is arguably the most sophisticated Platonist theory of the soul in antiquity. Plotinus offers a Platonist response to Aristotelian and Stoic conceptions of the soul that is at the same time an innovative interpretation of Plato's Timaeus. He considers the notion of the soul to be crucial for explaining the rational order of the world. To this end, he discusses not only different types of individual soul (such as the souls of the stars, and human and animal souls) but also an entity that he was the first ...
