The Impact of Aristotelianism on Modern Philosophy
Imprint: Catholic University of America Press
This volume provides the first extensive assessment of the impact of Aristotelianism on the history of philosophy from the Renaissance to the end of the twentieth century. The contributors have considered Aristotelian issues in late scholastic, Renaissance, and early modern philosophers such as Vernia, Nifo, Barbaro, Cajetan, Piccolomini, Patrizzi, Zabarella, Campanella, Galileo, Sémery, Leibniz, Rousseau, Kant, Hegel, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, Wittgenstein, and Gadamer. Specific attention is given to the role of the five intellectual virtues set forth by Aristotle in book VI of the Nicomachean Ethics, namely art, prudence, science, wisdom, and intellect.
In addition to the editor, the contributors are: Enrico Berti, Richard Cobb-Stevens, Daniel O. Dahlstrom, Michael Davis, John P. Doyle, Alfredo Ferrarin, Edward P. Mahoney, Christia Mercer, Antonino Poppi, Stanley Rosen, Richard Velkley, and William A. Wallace.
"The volume is remarkable both in the varied experts' knowledge of Aristotle and contemporary Aristotelian scholarship, but also in the range of scholarship in their own topic. Ricardo Pozzo, who edited the volume, wrote an excellent introduction reviewing the contributions and giving the background of the series... These essays represent the product of a distinguished collection of experts writing on their particular philosopher or era and showing how that person or era related to Aristotle and the Aristotelian tradition. The Catholic University of America is to be congratulated for sponsoring the series and publishing the results. The bibliography and index are well done, and the whole volume makes a positive contribution to philosophic scholarship."~Review of Metaphysics
