Most widely held works by Jacques Brunschwig
Greek thought : a guide to classical knowledge( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 1,339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ancient Greek thought is the essential wellspring from which the intellectual, ethical, and political civilization of the West draws and to which, even today, we repeatedly return. In more than sixty essays by an international team of scholars, this volume explores the full breadth and reach of Greek thought -- investigating what the Greeks knew as well as what they thought about what they knew, and what they believed, invented, and understood about the conditions and possibilities of knowing. Calling attention to the characteristic reflexivity of Greek thought, the analysis in this book reminds us of what our own reflections owe to theirs."--Jacket

Passions & perceptions : studies in Hellenistic philosophy of mind : proceedings of the Fifth Symposium Hellenisticum by Symposium Hellenisticum( Book )

27 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and French and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The philosophers of the Hellenistic schools in ancient Greece and Rome (Epicureans, Stoics, Sceptics, Academics, Cyrenaics) made important contributions to the philosophy of mind and the philosophy of psychology. This volume, which contains the proceedings of the Fifth Symposium Hellenisticum, describes and analyses their contributions on issues such as: the nature of perception, imagination and belief; the nature of the passions and their role in action; the relationship between mind and body; freedom and determinism; the role of pleasure as a goal; the effects of poetry on belief and passion. Written with a high level of historical and philosophical scholarship, the essays are intended both for classicists and for nonspecialists interested in the philosophy of mind."--Jacket

Early Greek science: Thales to Aristotle by G. E. R Lloyd( Book )

5 editions published between 1974 and 1990 in French and Spanish and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although there is no exact equivalent of our term 'science' in Greek, Western science may still be said to have originated with the Greeks, for they were the first to attempt to explain natural phenomena consistently in naturalistic terms, and they initiated the practice of rational criticism of scientific theories. This study traces Greek science through the work of the Pythagoreans, the Presocratic natural philosophers, the Hippocratic writers, Plato, the fourth-century B.C astronomers, and Aristotle. [The author] also investigates the relationship between science and philosophy and science and medicine; he discusses the social and economic setting of early Greek science; and he analyzes the motives and incentives of the different groups of writers"--Back cover

Die Theodizee by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz( Book )

18 editions published between 1969 and 2003 in French and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pourquoi Dieu a-t-il créé un monde imparfait? Parce qu'il a voulu les hommes libres, susceptibles par leur action de contribuer à son perfectionnement. Le Mal est donc un moindre mal, un mal en vue d'un mieux. Dieu est ainsi disculpé. Les Essais de théodicée(en grec, Dieu (théos) subit le jugement (dikè) des hommes) sont à parcourir comme une longue et géniale plaidoirie où Leibniz, brillant avocat de Dieu, parvient à démontrer la bonté du monde et à justifier moralement la réalité donnée

Greek science after Aristotle by G. E. R Lloyd( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in French and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his previous volume in this series, 'Early Greek science : Thales to Aristotle', [the author] pointed out that although there is no exact equivalent to our term 'science' in Greek, Western science may still be said to originate with the Greeks. In this new volume, the author continues his discussion of the fundamental Greek contributions to science, drawing on the richer literary and archaeological sources for the period after Aristotle. Particular attention is paid to the Greeks' conceptions of the inquiries they were engaged on, and to the interrelations of science and philosophy, science and religion, and science and technology. In the first part of the book the author considers the two hundred years after the death of Aristotle, devoting separate chapters to mathematics, astronomy, and biology. He goes on to deal with Ptolemy and Galen and concludes with a discussion of later writers and of the problems raised by the question of the decline of ancient science"--Back cover
An introduction to Plato's Republic by Julia Annas( Book )

3 editions published between 1981 and 1994 in French and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stressing Plato's desire to stimulate philosophical thinking in his readers, Julia Annas here demonstrates the coherence of his main moral argument on the nature of justice, and expounds related concepts of education, human motivation, knowledge and understanding. In a clear systematic fashion, this book shows that modern moral philosophy still has much to learn from Plato's attempt to move the focus from questions of what acts the just person ought to perform to the more profound questions of what sort of person the just person ought to be"--Pub. website
