Il Socrate di Olof Gigon (1912-1998) rappresenta un testo fondamentale per lo sviluppo della storiografia socratica. Esso ci pone di fronte alla seguente questione: che cosa si può veramente sapere sul Socrate storico e che cosa, invece, è da considerare letteratura socratica? Per rispondere a questa domanda Gigon chiama in causa tutte le fonti - non soltanto Platone e Senofonte, ma anche i cosiddetti "socratici minori": Antistene, Eschine, Aristippo, Euclide e Fedone. Attraverso l'analisi delle loro testimonianze l'autore mostra non solo che, a parte pochissime informazioni biografiche, sul Socrate storico non possiamo sapere nulla, ma anche che le dottrine che i suoi discepoli gli hanno fatto pronunciare nei loro scritti non possono essere ricondotte senza contraddizione ad un unico maestro - infatti, se si eliminasse dalle loro opere l'elemento letterario, si perderebbe anche il nesso con Socrate. Allora chi è e chi può essere Socrate per noi? Gigon lo definisce come un limite: non si può, né si può pretendere di sapere perché proprio lui sia diventato l'immagine del vero filosofo. Si deve tuttavia riconoscere che è stato un individuo unico e straordinario, che è diventato il protagonista di un importante genere letterario e che ha segnato l'inizio di un nuovo modo di concepire la filosofia

The politics by Aristotle( Book )

46 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 218 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new translation of one of the fundamental texts of Western political thought combines strict fidelity to Aristotle's Greek with a contemporary English prose style. Lord's intention throughout is to retain Aristotle's distinctive style. The accompanying notes provide literary and historical references, call attention to textual problems, and supply other essential information and interpretation. A glossary supplies working definitions of key terms in Aristotle's philosophical-political vocabulary as well as a guide to linguistic relationships that are not always reflected in equivalent English terms. Lord's extensive introduction presents a detailed account of Aristotle's life in relation to the political situation and events of his time and then discusses the problematic character and history of Aristotle's writings in general and of the Politics in particular. Lord also outlines Aristotle's conception of political science, tracing its relation to theoretical science on the one hand and to ethics on the other. In conclusion, he briefly traces the subsequent history and influence of the Politics up to modern times."--Publisher's description
