An Elementary Christian Metaphysics (Paperback): Joseph Owens An Elementary Christian Metaphysics (Paperback)
Joseph Owens
R657 R542 Discovery Miles 5 420 Save R115 (18%) Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Joseph Owens presents an introduction to metaphysics designed to develop in the reader a habitus of thinking. Using original Thomistic texts and Etienne Gilson's interpretation of St. Thomas Aquinas, Owens examines the application of metaphysical principles to the issues that arise in a specifically Christian environment. From a starting point of external, sensible, non-human beings, An Elementary Christian Metaphysics focuses in the questions of existence and the nature of revealed truths. Following his historical introduction to metaphysics, Owens provides a general investigation of the first principles and causes of being, and a study of knowledge and of the divine nature and attributes in light of natural reason.

Throughout the long centuries of western metaphysics the problem of the infinite has kept surfacing in different but important ways. It had confronted Greek philosophical speculation from earliest times. It appeared in the definition of the divine attributed to Thales in Diogenes Laertius (I, 36) under the description "that which has neither beginning nor end. " It was presented on the scroll of Anaximander with enough precision to allow doxographers to transmit it in the technical terminology of the unlimited (apeiron) and the indeterminate (aoriston). The respective quanti tative and qualitative implications of these terms could hardly avoid causing trouble. The formation of the words, moreover, was clearly negative or privative in bearing. Yet in the philosophical framework the notion in its earliest use meant something highly positive, signifying fruitful content for the first principle of all the things that have positive status in the universe. These tensions could not help but make themselves felt through the course of later Greek thought. In one extreme the notion of the infinite was refined in a way that left it appropriated to the Aristotelian category of quantity. In Aristotle (Phys. III 6-8) it came to appear as essentially re quiring imperfection and lack. It meant the capacity for never-ending increase. It was always potential, never completely actualized."

Cet ouvrage reproduit les actes du VIe Symposium aristotelicum de 1978 qui fut exclusivement consacre a la Metaphysique d'Aristote. Delaissant volontairement les problematiques generales, les etudes rassemblees ici se consacrent a l'examen des passages les plus aporetiques de l'ouvrage, et aux questions fondamentales qui s'y nouent, subordonnant ainsi les controverses sur l'unite du traite a la saisie du sens de ses analyses les plus profondes. C'est dans cette perspective que les differents livres de la Metaphysique sont interroges, et que les concepts de forme, de matiere, de simple, de substance (ousia), d'activite, sont mis en rapport pour tenter de determiner la nature et l'objet de cette science de l'etant en tant qu'etant au moment de sa fondation. Ces etudes font egalement place a une recherche qui met en rapport la problematique et la methode de la Metaphysique avec celles du Sophiste de Platon en amont, et en aval avec la pensee de Plotin, pour saisir la pensee d'Aristote dans la double perspective d'un heritage et d'une filiation. Presentant en outre a la suite de chaque contribution un resume de la discussion a laquelle elle donna lieu, le present recueil rappelle quelles taches un ouvrage aussi eminemment aporetique que la Metaphysique assigne a la pensee chaque fois qu'elle en reprend le cheminement et cherche a en saisir le sens.
