"Many will regard the new work as one of the better places to begin their background reading on the ethics of Plato....Recommended."--Choice"Plato's Ethics is a model of how to enter into another's mind by making full use of one's own. Reflective readers will gain many insights into Plato's philosophy, and into the art of doing ancient philosophy."--Ancient Philosophy."..Plato's Ethics is an exceptionally coherent and cogent book. Its arguments set a standard of clarity worthy of emulation by champions and critics alike, and I suspect this book will appear as a regular entry in bibliographies for some time,"--E.E. Benitez, The Review of Metaphysics"Plato's Moral Theory was one of the classic works of ancient philosophy scholarship of this century and Plato's Ethics should be at least as influential. Its clarity, rigor, and philosophical sophistication and imagination are rarely matched even by the best work in the history of philosophy."--ThePhilosophical ReviewCríticas:
Irwin has now provided us with one detailed, synoptic view of Plato's ethics which will no doubt stimulate as much debate and discussion as the original PMT. ( Phronesis)
Plato's Ethics ... adds a new and deep consideration of the Republic as well as some short chapters on the later dialogues ... Irwin has written a huge book ... clever and rewarding in its eye for detail, in its minute treatment of individual passages. ( Times Literary Supplement)
brilliant book ... Professor Irwin has an awe inspiring ability to develop illuminating and subtle lines of interpretation and argument, and there is no doubt that anyone seriously interested in Plato's ethics will be studying and learning from his book for years to come. This is a rich work. ( Robert Heinaman, University College, London, Mind, Vol. 106, No. 42, Jan '97)

Buchbeschreibung OXFORD UNIV PR Jun 1997, 1997. Taschenbuch. Buchzustand: Neu. 228x152x29 mm. Neuware - This exceptional book examines and explains Plato's answer to the normative question, 'How ought we to live ' It discusses Plato's conception of the virtues; his views about the connection between the virtues and happiness; and the account of reason, desire, and motivation that underlies hisarguments about the virtues. Plato's answer to the epistemological question, 'How can we know how we ought to live ' is also discussed. His views on knowledge, belief, and inquiry, and his theory of Forms, are examined, insofar as they are relevant to his ethical view. Terence Irwin traces thedevelopment of Plato's moral philosophy, from the Socratic dialogues to its fullest exposition in the Republic. Plato's Ethics discusses Plato's reasons for abandoning or modifying some aspects of Socratic ethics, and for believing that he preserves Socrates' essential insights. A brief andselective discussion of the Statesmen, Philebus, and Laws is included. Replacing Irwin's earlier Plato's Moral Theory (Oxford, 1977), this book gives a clearer and fuller account of the main questions and discusses some recent controversies in the interpretation of Plato's ethics. It does notpresuppose any knowledge of Greek or any extensive knowledge of Plato. 464 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9780195086454
