The Agamben Dictionary
Agamben's vocabulary is both expansive and idiosyncratic, with words such as "infancy", "gesture" and "profanation" given specific and complex meanings that can bewilder the new reader. Bringing together leading scholars in the field, including Thanos Zartaloudis (Birkbeck, University of London), Kevin Attell (Cornell University) and Catherine Mills (The University of Sydney) the 150 entries explain the key concepts in Agamben's work and his relationship with other thinkers, from Aristotle to Aby Warburg.

From the Tree to the Labyrinth: Historical Studies on the Sign and Interpretation

From the Tree to the Labyrinth: Historical Studies on the Sign and Interpretation by Umberto Eco, Anthony Oldcorn
English | 2014 | ISBN: 0674049187 | 640 pages | PDF | 5 MB

From the Tree to the Labyrinth: Historical Studies on the Sign and Interpretation
The way we create and organize knowledge is the theme of From the Tree to the Labyrinth, a major achievement by one of the world's foremost thinkers on language and interpretation. Umberto Eco begins by arguing that our familiar system of classification by genus and species derives from the Neo-Platonist idea of a "tree of knowledge." He then moves to the idea of the dictionary, which-like a tree whose trunk anchors a great hierarchy of branching categories-orders knowledge into a matrix of definitions. In Eco's view, though, the dictionary is too rigid: it turns knowledge into a closed system.

A more flexible organizational scheme is the encyclopedia, which-instead of resembling a tree with finite branches-offers a labyrinth of never-ending pathways. Presenting knowledge as a network of interlinked relationships, the encyclopedia sacrifices humankind's dream of possessing absolute knowledge, but in compensation we gain the freedom to pursue an infinity of new connections and meanings.

Moving effortlessly from analyses of Aristotle and James Joyce to the philosophical difficulties of telling dogs from cats, Eco demonstrates time and again his inimitable ability to bridge ancient, medieval, and modern modes of thought. From the Tree to the Labyrinth is a brilliant illustration of Eco's longstanding argument that problems of interpretation can be solved only in historical context.

Review
"Faas has written a provocative book, challenging the familiar literary and philosophical theories of tragedy from Aristotle onwards. His judicious use of nietzschean insights both stimulates and compels assent. Exuberant scholarship from first page to last." Irving Layton

Nicomachean Ethics

FREEDownload : Nicomachean Ethics

Nicomachean Ethics (Hackett Classics) by Aristotle and C. D. C. Reeve
English | 2014 | ISBN: 1624661173, 1624661181 | 504 pages | PDF | 6 MB

Nicomachean Ethics
An excellent new translation and commentary. It will serve newcomers as an informative, accessible introduction to the and to many issues in Aristotle’s philosophy, but also has much to offer advanced scholars. The commentary is noteworthy for its frequent citations of relevant passages from other works in Aristotle’s corpus, which often shed new light on the texts. Reeve’s translation is meticulous: it hits the virtuous mean–accurate and technical, yet readable–between translation’s vicious extremes of faithlessness and indigestibility.–Jessica Moss, New York University

Aristotle and The Philosophy of Law: Theory, Practice and Justice

FREEDownload : Aristotle and The Philosophy of Law: Theory, Practice and Justice

Aristotle and The Philosophy of Law: Theory, Practice and Justice by Liesbeth Huppes-Cluysenaer and Nuno M.M.S. Coelho
English | 2013-02-28 | ISBN: 9400760302 | PDF | 290 pages | 5 MB

Aristotle and The Philosophy of Law: Theory, Practice and Justice
The book presents a new focus on the legal philosophical texts of Aristotle, which offers a much richer frame for the understanding of practical thought, legal reasoning and political experience. It allows understanding how human beings interact in a complex world, and how extensive the complexity is which results from humans' own power of self-construction and autonomy. The Aristotelian approach recognizes the limits of rationality and the inevitable and constitutive contingency in Law. All this offers a helpful instrument to understand the changes globalisation imposes to legal experience today.

The contributions in this collection do not merely pay attention to private virtues, but focus primarily on public virtues. They deal with the fact that law is dependent on political power and that a person can never be sure about the facts of a case or about the right way to act. They explore the assumption that a detailed knowledge of Aristotle's epistemology is necessary, because of the direct connection between Enlightened reasoning and legal positivism. They pay attention to the concept of proportionality, which can be seen as a precondition to discuss liberalism.
