After the death of Aristotle, in the Hellenistic period, Epicureans and Stoics developed and transformed that earlier tradition. We will study the major doctrines of all these thinkers. Part I will cover Plato and his predecessors. Part II will cover Aristotle and his successors. Length: 14 Hours Effort: 4 hours per week. Plato ( B.C.) stands at the head of our philosophical tradition, being the first Western thinker to produce a body of writing that touches upon the wide range of topics that are still discussed by philosophers today under such headings as metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, political theory, language, art, love, mathematics, science, and religion.

"Ars Poetica", or "The Art of Poetry", is a poem written by Horace c. 19 BC, in which he advises poets on the art of writing poetry and drama. The Ars Poetica has "exercised a great influence in later ages on European literature, notably on French drama" and has inspired poets and authors since it was written. Although it has been well-known since the Middle Ages, it has been used . Item(s) successfully added to the cart! Aristotle on His Predecessors, being the First Book of his Metaphysics. By: Taylor, A. E. Price: $ Quantity: 1 available. Book .

Republic, Book 1 Gorgias Meno Euthydemus Hippias I and II Cratylas Symposium Phaedo Republic, Books Timaeus Laws As has already been pointed out, Plato uses Socrates as the main interlocutor in his dialogues. The specific way that Plato makes use of the character of Socrates varies some-what during the different periods in which Plato wrote. His own most decisive philosophical influences are usually thought to have been along with Socrates, the pre-Socratics Pythagoras, Heraclitus and Parmenides, although few of his predecessors' works remain extant and much of what we know about these figures today derives from Plato himself.[b] Unlike the work of nearly all of his contemporaries.
