  1. Contemplative Withdrawal in the Hellenistic Age.Eric Brown - 2008 - Philosophical Studies 137 (1):79-89.
    I reject the traditional picture of philosophical withdrawal in the Hellenistic Age by showing how both Epicureans and Stoics oppose, in different ways, the Platonic and Aristotelian assumption that contemplative activity is the greatest good for a human being. Chrysippus the Stoic agrees with Plato and Aristotle that the greatest good for a human being is virtuous activity, but he denies that contemplation exercises virtue. Epicurus more thoroughly rejects the assumption that the greatest good for a human being is virtuous (...)

  • La distinción Aristotélica sobre los modos de vida.Viviana Suñol - 2013 - Tópicos: Revista de Filosofía 45:9-47.
    La exaltación aristotélica del ideal contemplativo de vida en Ética a Nicómaco X fue muy influyente en la historia de la filosofía y sus efectos se prolongan mucho más allá del Helenismo y de la Antigüedad tardía. Sin embargo, es en Política VII 1-3 donde Aristóteles presenta la consideración más detallada de los géneros de vida y, en particular, la oposición entre la política y la filosófica. El propósito de este trabajo es reconsiderar el elogio de la vida contemplativa del (...)

  • Aristotle and the Authoritativeness of Politikē.George Duke - 2014 - British Journal for the History of Philosophy 22 (4):631-654.
    This paper explores the normative implications of Aristotle's concept of politikē and demonstrates its relevance to contemporary debates on legitimate political authority. Section one of the paper provides historical and interpretative background on Aristotle's conception of politikē. The second section examines the central normative role that the common good plays in Aristotle's account of politikē and claims that its capacity to play this role points in the direction of a less exclusionary politics than is suggested by Book 1 of the (...)
