A method of resolutions: Rereading NE 7.1, 1145b2-7

Resultado de la investigación: Contribución a una revistaArtículorevisión exhaustiva


This article is about the methodological remarks in Nicomachean Ethics 7.1, 1145b2-7, and the way they are carried out in the following chapters. I argue that the procedure therein described does not aim to establish consistency among a subset of endoxa, but to test and refine-by considering and resolving objections against them-endoxa that could enter into a nominal definition of continence and incontinence. The dialectical lineage of this discussion, if there is one, is to be found in the use of the critical procedure of resolution that can be traced back to Topics and Sophistical Refutations.
