Titre : Galen and Chrysippus on the Soul: Argument ...

Éditeur : Brill, Netherlands

Date d'édition : 1996

Reliure : Hardback

Etat du livre : New

Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. This volume deals with books II and III of the On the Doctrines of Hippocrates and Plato by the medical scientist and philosopher Galen of Pergamum (129-c. 210 CE ). In these books Galen offers an extensive critique of Stoic psychology, quoting a large number of passages from the otherwise lost treatise On the Soul by the great Stoic philosopher Chrysippus. This first full-scale study of Chrysippus mode of argumentation considers the fragments both in their Galenic context and in relation to Stoicism in general. A separate discussion is devoted to Galen s aims and methods and the traditions he is indebted to. Though designed as a foil for the treatment of Chrysippus, it can also be read by those interested in Galen s methodology for its own sake. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9789004105201

A propos du livre :

Synopsis : This volume deals with books II and III of "On The Doctrines of Hippocrates and Plato", by the medical scientist and philosopher, Galen of Pergamum (129-210 AD). In these books Galen offers a critique of Stoic psychology, quoting a large number of passages from the otherwise lost treatise "On the Soul" by the Stoic philosopher, Chrysippus. This study of Chrysippus's mode of argumentation considers the fragments both in their Galenic context and in relation to Stoicism in general. A separate discussion is devoted to Galen's aims and methods, and the traditions to which he is indebted. Though designed as a foil for the treatment of Chrysippus, this text should also be of interest to those interested in Galen's methodology for its own sake.

Critique: 'This study promises to be one of enduring relevance, and a fundamental point of departure for future scholarly works on realted topics.' Gretchen J. Reydams-Schils, Ancient Philosophy, 2004.
