The Circle of Socrates - Readings in the First-Generation Socratics (Paperback): George Boys-Stones, Christopher Rowe The Circle of Socrates - Readings in the First-Generation Socratics (Paperback)
George Boys-Stones, Christopher Rowe
R548 R440 Discovery Miles 4 400 Save R108 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In addition to works by Plato and Xenophon, we know of dozens of treatises and dialogues written by followers of Socrates that are now lost. The surviving evidence for these writings constitutes an invaluable resource for our understanding of Socrates and his philosophical legacy. The Circle of Socrates presents new--sometimes the first--English translations of a representative selection of this evidence, set alongside extracts from Plato and Xenophon. The texts are arranged according to theme, with concise introductions that provide an overview of the topics and the main lines of thought within them. The aim is to give a fuller account of the philosophical activity of Socrates' immediate followers: both to shed light on less well known figures (some of whom inspired schools and movements that were influential in the development of later thought), and also to improve our grasp of the intellectual context within which Plato and Xenophon, the most important of the Socratics, lived and wrote. Included are a general introduction to the history, content, and character of these writings; a bibliography; an index of sources; and an index of the Socratics and their works.

Michael Haneke - The Intermedial Void (Paperback): Christopher Rowe Michael Haneke - The Intermedial Void (Paperback)
Christopher Rowe
R888 R811 Discovery Miles 8 110 Save R77 (9%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The two primary goals of this ambitious study are to provide a new framework in which to interpret the films of Michael Haneke, including Funny Games , Cache , and others, and to show how the concept of intermediality can be used to expand the possibilities of film and media studies, tying the two more closely together. Christopher Rowe argues that Haneke's practice of introducing nonfilmic media into his films is not simply an aspect of his interest in society's oversaturation in various forms of media. Instead, the use of video, television, photography, literary voice, and other media must be understood as modes of expression that fundamentally oppose the film medium itself. The "intermedial void" is a product of the absolute incommensurability of these media forms as perceptual and affective phenomena. Close analysis of specific films shows how their relationship to noncinematic media transforms the nature of the film image, and of film spectatorship.

Plato: Theaetetus and Sophist (Hardcover): Christopher Rowe Plato: Theaetetus and Sophist (Hardcover)
Christopher Rowe
R1,185 R1,119 Discovery Miles 11 190 Save R66 (6%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Plato's Theaetetus and Sophist are two of his most important dialogues, and are widely read and discussed by philosophers for what they reveal about his epistemology and particularly his accounts of belief and knowledge. Although they form part of a single Platonic project, these dialogues are not usually presented as a pair, as they are in Christopher Rowe's new and lively translation. Offering a high standard of accuracy and readability, the translation reveals the continuity between these dialogues and others in the Platonic corpus, especially the Republic. The supporting introduction and notes help the reader to follow the arguments as they develop, explaining their structure, context and interpretation. This new edition challenges current scholarly approaches to Plato's work and will pave the way for fresh interpretations both of Theaetetus and Sophist and of Plato's writings in general.

Plato and the Art of Philosophical Writing (Paperback): Christopher Rowe Plato and the Art of Philosophical Writing (Paperback)
Christopher Rowe
R932 Discovery Miles 9 320 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Plato's dialogues are usually understood as simple examples of philosophy in action. In this book Professor Rowe treats them rather as literary-philosophical artefacts, shaped by Plato's desire to persuade his readers to exchange their view of life and the universe for a different view which, from their present perspective, they will barely begin to comprehend. What emerges is a radically new Plato: a Socratic throughout, who even in the late dialogues is still essentially the Plato (and the Socrates) of the Apology and the so-called 'Socratic' dialogues. This book aims to understand Plato both as a philosopher and as a writer, on the assumption that neither of these aspects of the dialogues can be understood without the other. The argument of the book is closely based in Plato's text, but should be accessible to any serious reader of Plato, whether professional philosopher, classicist, or student.

Cambridge Studies in the Dialogues of Plato - Plato's Lysis (Hardcover): Terry Penner, Christopher Rowe Cambridge Studies in the Dialogues of Plato - Plato's Lysis (Hardcover)
Terry Penner, Christopher Rowe
R1,860 Discovery Miles 18 600 Out of stock

The Lysis is one of Plato's most engaging but also puzzling dialogues; it has often been regarded, in the modern period, as a philosophical failure. The full philosophical and literary exploration of the dialogue illustrates how it in fact provides a systematic and coherent, if incomplete, account of a special theory about, and special explanation of, human desire and action. Furthermore, it shows how that theory and explanation are fundamental to a whole range of other Platonic dialogues and indeed to the understanding of the corpus as a whole. Part One offers an analysis of, or running commentary on, the dialogue. In Part Two Professors Penner and Rowe examine the philosophical and methodological implications of the argument uncovered by the analysis. The whole is rounded off by an epilogue of the relation between the Lysis and some other Platonic (and Aristotelian) texts.

Shortlisted for the Neukom Institute Literary Arts Awards There are ten stories here including one readers have waited ten long years for: in new novel-la The Border State Rowe revisits the world of his much-lauded story The Voluntary State. Competitive cyclists twins Michael and Maggie have trained all their lives to race internationally. One thing holds them back: their mother who years before crossed the border ... into Tennessee. Praise for Christopher Rowe: "Rowe's stories are the kind of thing you want on a cold, winter's night when the fire starts burning low. Terrific." --Justina Robson (Glorious Angels) "As good as he is now, he'll keep getting better. Read these excellent stories, and see what I mean."--Jack Womack (Going, Going, Gone) "Rowe's work might remind you of that of Andy Duncan. Both exemplify an archetypically Southern viewpoint on life's mysteries, a worldview that admits marvels in the most common of circumstances and narrates those unreal intrusions in a kind of downhome manner that belies real sophistication."-- Asimov's "As smooth and heady as good Kentucky bourbon."-- Locus Christopher Rowe's stories have been finalists for the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, and Theodore Sturgeon awards, frequently reprinted, translated into a half-dozen languages, praised by the New York Times Book Review, and long listed in the Best American Short Stories. He holds an MFA from the Bluegrass Writer's Studio. Rowe and his wife Gwenda Bond co-write the Supernormal Sleuthing Series for children, and reside in a hundred-year-old house in Lexington, Kentucky.

The Cambridge History of Political Thought - The Cambridge History of Greek and Roman Political Thought (Paperback, New Ed):... The Cambridge History of Political Thought - The Cambridge History of Greek and Roman Political Thought (Paperback, New Ed)
Christopher Rowe, Malcolm Schofield; As told to Simon Harrison, Melissa Lane
R1,210 Discovery Miles 12 100 Out of stock

This book, first published in 2000, is a general and comprehensive treatment of the political thought of ancient Greece and Rome. It begins with Homer and ends in late antiquity with Christian and pagan reflections on divine and human order. In between come studies of Plato, Aristotle and a host of other major and minor thinkers - poets, historians, philosophers - whose individuality is brought out by extensive quotation. The international team of distinguished scholars assembled by the editors includes historians of law, politics, culture and religion, and also philosophers. Some chapters focus mostly on the ancient context of the ideas they are examining, while others explore these ideas as systems of thought which resonate with modern or perennial concerns. This clearly written volume will long remain an accessible and authoritative guide to Greek and Roman thinking about government and community.

Plato: Statesman (Greek, To, Paperback, New Ed): Christopher Rowe Plato: Statesman (Greek, To, Paperback, New Ed)
Christopher Rowe
R725 Discovery Miles 7 250 Out of stock

Until now no English translation existed of the Statesman (one of Plato's central works on politics, and on much else besides) which was both accurate and usable: nor was there a modern commentary which would help the reader through the argument, which was, in some parts, likely to be inaccessible without a guide. This new edition fills both gaps, being aimed especially, like other volumes in the Aris &Phillips series of texts, at students and other readers with little or no knowledge of the original language. This dialogue is of interest to philosophers and students of political theory as well as to classicists. Greek text with facing translation, notes and introduction.

Plato: Phaedrus (Greek, To, Paperback, First Published 1986, Reprinted With Corrections 2): Christopher Rowe Plato: Phaedrus (Greek, To, Paperback, First Published 1986, Reprinted With Corrections 2)
Christopher Rowe
R443 Discovery Miles 4 430 Out of stock

The dating of the Phaedrus has been hotly debated: sometimes it has been counted among Plato's earliest works; sometimes with the dialogues of the 'middle' period (Phaedo, Symposium, Republic); sometimes with the late works (e.g. Sophist, Statesman). The safest and easiest hypothesis is that it stands somewhere between the latter two groups, in that it displays themes and preoccupations in common with both. Love, knowledge and the Forms, the nature and fate of the immortal soul: these are subjects familiar from the constructive middle dialogues; on the other hand, the discussion which frames Socrates' treatment of them, about the relationship between rhetoric and philosophy, about the value of writing, and about methodology, can in many respects plausibly be linked with the approach of the later and more critical dialogues. In modern times the Phaedrus has been relatively neglected; yet the rich mixture of its themes, and the consequent variations of style and tempo, make it one of the most rewarding parts of the Platonic corpus. This same variety is also the source of one of the major problems affecting our understanding of the work; is it a real unity? If so, what are the threads which hold the parts together? Greek text with facing-page translation, commentary and notes.

Plato: Symposium (Greek, Ancient (to 1453), Paperback, New Ed): Christopher Rowe Plato: Symposium (Greek, Ancient (to 1453), Paperback, New Ed)
Christopher Rowe
R763 Discovery Miles 7 630 Out of stock

The Symposium is a complex piece which is perhaps as widely read as any of Plato's works apart from the Republic. However the existing standard commentaries in English do not offer much by way of help to any reader except the classicist who knows Greek; and they also tend to be light on the dialogue as a work of philosophy. This new edition aims to fill both gaps. As well as providing a new and accurate translation facing the Greek text, it includes a substantial commentary, keyed mainly to the translation, which takes into account the needs of those without (or with little) Greek. It also treats the Symposium not just as a piece of literature that includes some philosophy, but as the product of a serious philosopher who is simultaneously a writer of the first order. Among the particular concerns of the commentary is to elucidate the underlying structure and argument of the dialogue. The outcome is not a synthesis of previous scholarship (collected in a sizeable, but selective, bibliography, but what is in many respects a fresh reading of a central and influential Platonic text. Greek text with facing-page translation, introduction and notes.
