Klappentext

The main objective of this volume is to offer some new readings of Aristotle's axiological ideas and practical philosophy in view of their historical impact and persisting importance. Thus, the volume is divided in two parts. The articles included in the first part discuss the origins and the foundations of Aristotelian value theory and practical philosophy. Reinterpreting the meaning of certain fundamental anthropological, ethical and political concepts of Aristotelian philosophy, such as orexis, pathe, phronesis, prohairesis, boulesis, bouleusis, a/o, the authors show their importance for the understanding of human being and human action. The articles in the second aim to show the historical impact of Aristotelian ethics and theory of action, and especially the diversity of their receptions. In particular, the authors show how problems in modern and contemporary ethical theories (modern virtue ethics, moral individualism, utilitarianism, recursive ethics etc.) can be resolved by using Aristotle's conceptual framework.
