Torrance Kirby and Kathleen M. Advanced Seminar - The "Harmony of the Two Philosophers" ascribed to al-Farabi Adamson One of the most familiar and influential ideas of late antiquity wasthat Plato and Aristotle agreed in all the fundamentals of their philosophy. This idea called "perfectly crazy," but fruitful, by Richard Sorabji lived on in the Arabic-speaking world, and was explicitly defended in a work called "Harmony of the Two Sages. In this seminar we will read selections of the text in the original Arabic and discuss the philosophical viewpoint taken by the author; ideally, it will also be decided by the end of the seminar whether Farabi is in fact the author.
What kinds of desires play a role in them and how do they do so? Can these desires conflict with one another in the moral agent? In what sense can we be motivated by reason to act morally? What is distinctive about moral deliberation in comparison with other kinds of thinking? Do we ever act contrary to our beliefs, and if so, what explains this fact? What conclusions can we draw about the structure of the mind on the basis on moral decision making? We will engage in a close reading of ancient texts in translation together with discussion of selected scholarly literature - roughly one article each week.
The course will focus on the theories of Socrates, Plato and Aristotle. Some previous coursework in ancient philosophy is recommended. All readings and discussion will be conducted in English.

This treatise is dedicated to an inquiry into ousia substance. In its first five chapters Aristotle attempts to give an account of the principles of alterable and sensible substance. From chapter six onwards he turns to a more controversial type of substance, which is required to be without any alteration or motion. In the course of the following chapters this immovable type of substance is identified with the first unmoved mover which again is argued to be the first principle of everything. The seminar will be held in English; knowledge of Ancient Greek is required.
Each fragment is discussed with reference to the underlying Aristotelian passage and Averroes' response to Alexander, with attention given to both philological and philosophical aspects of the material. Arabic competence is not required for participation in the seminar; discussion is held in English. Doktorandenkolloquium Rapp Di.
Fortgeschrittenenseminar - Aristotelian Emotions Rapp Mi. In philosophy, such ideas derive, to a considerable extent, from the interpretation of Aristotle; for Aristotle seems to be the first who systematically laid bare the connections between our attitudes towards certain objects and the individuation of various types of emotions. Vorlesung: Aristoteles, Poetik Primavesi Do. Kassel aus dem Jahre und die Edition von L. Gutas aus dem Jahre Anagnostopoulos Do. Stock, Raum In this seminar, held primarily in English presentations and contributions in German are welcome we will focus primarily on the Greek text of Aristotle's Physics, book II.
The central topics include: the definition of nature phusis , the status of form and matter as natural principles, the fourfold division of causes, luck and the accidental, and natural teleology. In addition to the Greek text, we will occasionally have a look at some recent secondary literature. Students should be prepared to offer one presentation either on the translation of the Greek text or on a piece of secondary literature.
Stock, Raum Boethius is well known as the author of the "Consolation of Philosophy," but he also wrote several theological treatises, which became highly influential in the middle ages. In these treatises he applies the tools of Aristotelian logic and metaphysics to the question of God's nature and His relation to the universe. We will read the two most influential treatises, De Hebdomadibus and On the Trinity, both of which were for instance commented upon by Thomas Aquinas.
The texts will be read in Latin but an English translation will also be made available. Stewart E. Rand, and S. Tester London: Fortgeschrittenenseminar - Suhrawardi Adamson Di. We will read the original Arabic text and discuss its linguistic and philosophical features.

Through a selection of pertinent readings a thematic path will be traced into fundamental questions debated by Islamic thinkers in reference to the Aristotelian text, such as the nature and method of metaphysics, the kinds and numbers of metaphysical principles, the finiteness of causal chains. All texts will be read in the original language and subjected to textual and linguistic analysis alongside philosophical discussion and doctrinal evaluation. Knowledge of Classical Arabic at an intermediate level, or higher, is required.
In this brief treatise Theophrastus, a student of Aristotle's, inquires into what he calls the first priniciples. The style and purpose of this work often resembles parts of Aristotle's "Physics" and "Metaphysics" in particular, it takes up questions that were discussed in Aristotle's famous book Lambda of the "Metaphysics".
The treatise also refers to many positions that were held by members of Plato's Academy; it thus became an important source for the reconstruction of early Academic and Peripatetic theories. Most obviously, it contains brilliant and incisive discussion of the meaning of Aristotle's text. Also it preserves further commentary from earlier thinkers, particularly otherwise lost material from the greatest ancient commentator on Aristotle, Alexander of Aphrodisias. Finally, the Arabic text can be used as a witness for the textual tradition of the Metaphysics itself.
In this seminar we will examine the Long Commentary on Book Lambda, in which Aristotle presents his philosophical treatment of immaterial substances, including God; and then move on to his commentary on Alpha Elatton, which for Averroes was the first book of Aristotle's Metaphysics.

Participants are expected to undertake one presentation. We will regularly read secondary literature alongside the primary text.
An optional 2-hour session in which we read the text in the original language will be held immediately after.

It also provides in-depth discussions of the accounts of presocratic philosophers. Oberseminar - Alexander of Aphrodisas, On Providence Adamson In this work, lost in Greek but preserved in two Arabic translations, the great ancient commentator Alexander of Aphrodisias sets out a theory according to which the heavens are the instruments of divine providence.
He also seeks to absolve them of blame for evils that occur in the earthly realm. We will translate and discuss the Arabic text.

Essays in Honor of John Patrick Donnelly, SJ
Dies ist die Fortsetzung des im Sommersemester begonnen Hauptseminars. Fortgeschrittenenseminar - Freiheit und Notwendigkeit.
His philosophy of mind was highly acclaimed by philosophers from the Middle Ages until Italian Renaissance, but it upset the social and religious conservatives preoccupied with its unorthodox, subversive implications. This soon became a burning issue. The seminar presents this long-lived interpretation of Aristotle's noetics in a detailed, comprehensive, and progressive manner.
It starts from the Aristotelian background, the philosophical antecedents of Averroes, and the evolution of the theory throughout the subsequent stages of Averroes's reflection. It brings out its philosophical contours and merits. Finally, it connects it with another concomitant doctrine: the view of beatitude as pure state of the mind and the product of philosophical exercise.
Primary readings are complemented by selected pieces of secondary literature which cast light on especially difficult or controversial issues. We will discuss original texts and recent secondary literature with an eye towards improving research methods and writing. In addition, doctoral students will present their work.
Topics will vary in accordance with the research interests of doctoral students. Verschiedene Positionen der neueren Ethik, z. This seminar will draw on discussions of book B in the previous semester and extend to the treatment of the puzzles raised in B in the subsequent books of the Metaphysics. Fortgeschrittenenseminar: Aristoteles' Metaphysik. The main difficulty consists in making the Categories ontology of particular objects consistent with the matter-form analysis hylomorphism which Aristotle develops in the Metaphysics.
For the analysis of particular objects in terms of matter and form seems to call into question the primacy that Aristotle assigns to them in the Categories. Central issues include the ontological status of nous, the relation between nous and its objects, the distinction between nous and other forms of cognition and the relation of nous to potentiality and actuality. Discussion will be structured around recent secondary literature. Connected to the seminar, we will offer an optional session in which we will read the central primary texts in the original language Tues. Tuesdays Tuesdays Ludwigstr.
In diesem Seminar werden Werke u. This course is intended for doctoral students in the Munich School of Ancient Philosophy. This seminar will be devoted to a close reading of the third book of Aristotle's Metaphysics , book Beta. This is a book in which Aristotle sets out the problems to be dealt with in "first philosophy," that is, the science of metaphysics. Major themes include the nature and unity of a philosophical science, the subject-matter of first philosophy, the status of first principles, and the status of mathematical objects, as well as the question of whether we should accept the existence of Platonic Forms.
Tuesdays , Leopoldstr. This course will examine theory of knowledge in ancient philosophy, beginning with key dialogues of Plato including the Meno and Theaetetus. It will then proceed to discuss Aristotle and compare his views to those of Plato; here the focus will be on Aristotle's Posterior Analytics. Across these texts we will see that both Plato and Aristotle operate with a very demanding conception of knowledge, something that continues in the Hellenistic period.
The course will look at the "Nachleben" of these ideas in Hellenistic schools, the Epicureans, Stoics and Skeptics. A further course by the same instructor will be offered in the following semester; this will pick up the story with the Neoplatonists and ask how knowledge and belief were understood in late ancient and medieval philosophy. Fortgeschrittenenseminar - Aristotle, Posterior Analytics Andreas Anagnostopoulos and Christian Pfeiffer In this seminar held in English , we will read and discuss the whole of Aristotle's Posterior Analytics, which provides an account of the structure of science and scientific knowledge.
Our discussion will be guided by recent secondary literature -- roughly one article per week. Those participating should have some background in Aristotle and be willing to undertake a presentation of one piece of secondary literature. Credit is earned through a term paper. In addition, this seminar should ideally be taken alongside a reading course, in which we will work through the Greek text. The reading course will take place immediately afterwards.
Ideally, the course will fall into two parts. The course presupposes no knowledge of Latin or of medieval philosophy. Oberseminar - Aristotle's De Motu Animalium 2. This seminar builds upon the results of the seminar held in the Wintersemester and in addition is especially devoted to discussion of the proceedings of the Symposium Aristotelicum held at LMU in April Hauptseminar - Platons Timaios George Karamanolis. Der Dialog befasst sich mit der Entstehung der Welt durch Chaos.
