Fortgeschrittenenseminar und Essaykurs

Training the mind for truth: philosophy, logic and epistemology in ancient and late ancient Greek philosophy

Di. 08:30 bis 10:00 s.t. woch 26.04.2022 bis 26.07.2022 Amalienstr. 73A - 018

The capacity to give and check reasons in support of abstract claims, policies, or actions is traditionally regarded as one distinctive trait of (human) rationality. People engage in these activities all the time, independently of whether they are capable of describing explicitly what they do exactly when they engage in such activities. Philosophers have devised strategies and tools to describe and assess these activities. The first to see the need for such an explicit philosophical account of these practices is, in some important and uncontroversial sense, Aristotle. Despite differences, the Stoics shared with Aristotle and his followers the idea that such an analysis is an important task of philosophy, but this concern was in no way uncontroversial in antiquity and late antiquity. In fact, both the Peripatetics and the Stoics had to come up with arguments to justify their interest in logical matters as such. What is logic about? How is knowledge of logical matters supposed to assist philosophers in their actual goal, i.e. contemplation of the truth? And what place is left for logic if one, like the skeptics do, suspend judgement on whether it is at all possible to attain knowledge of the truth? This class will provide an overview of the main texts and the main issues of the debate among the different philosophical traditions in antiquity and late antiquity concerning the conceptualisation of some basic operations of the mind (e.g. deduction and induction), the nature and function of logical investigations, and their contritbution to human knowledge
