Aristotle has been continuously at the frontier of philosophical reflection for almost 2400 years. Throughout the 20th century the influence of his practical philosophy has been growing. His «non-modernist» concept of phrónêsis or practical wisdom is attracting increasing interest as an alternative to both «modernism» and «post-modernism». This book is a meticulous study of Aristotle’s phrónêsis and its applications to the fields of personal development or character formation and of ethical virtues. It also relates phrónêsis to the wider context of Aristotle’s theoretical philosophy and of his different ways of knowing, and to both theoretical and practical concerns within modern social and action research. The whole of Aristotle’s thinking is radically practice-based and directed. However, it never loses its theoretical focus. His theoretical philosophy is fundamentally dialogical. Hence, the relevance of Aristotelian thinking is striking for the current reconfigurations in the social organisation of learning and knowledge production.

About the Author:

The Author: Olav Eikeland is a philosopher who has been working in Norway as an action researcher and organisational researcher at the Work Research Institute (WRI) since the mid-1980s. He holds a Ph.D. in ancient philosophy. His special interests are the connections between ancient dialogical philosophy, current action research, and organisational learning.

Review:

«The book by Olav Eikeland is almost revolutionary (...) because it presents an extremely erudite and systematic investigation on how Aristotle creates the foundation for a critical and normative dialogue, incorporating logic and dialectics, and reducing the "performative", persuasive and manipulative strategies which are obvious as direct or indirect agendas in management and social research. Through this it contributes with an analytical apparatus which, in my opinion, is able far beyond modern theories of communication in casting light on the complexity and problems of this crucial phenomenon. [...] Eikeland's work must be greeted as a sovereign attempt to reestablish the critical and liberating content of the extremely forceful Greek, conceptual framework underlying all thinking not exclusively devoted to an idiosyncratic "scientific" research.» (Ole Fogh Kirkeby, International Journal of Action Research)
«Interest in ‘phrónêsis and its relations to ‘epistêmêand ‘tékhnêin Aristotle and in social research has burgeoned recently. Eikeland’s tour de force’, based on his mastery of Aristotle’s corpus and his long experience in action research, complicates and enriches our understanding of what is at stake and challenges us to build philosophical and methodological foundations of action research in more robust and meaningful ways.» (Davydd J. Greenwood, Goldwin Smith Professor of Anthropology and Director, Institute for European Studies, Cornell University, U.S.A.)
«What is distinctive about the book is (...) that it provides valuable exegetical material for the kind of interpretation that makes Aristotle’s significance for action research stand out most convincingely. [I]t is possible, with the aid of Eikeland’s book, to defend the relevance of Aristotle to present-day educational concerns in hitherto unexplored but henceforth fresh and fertile ways.» (Marianna Papastephanou, Journal of Philosophy of Education)
«There are many unique aspects of Eikeland's work, but his interrogation of so much of Aristotle's canon (...) represents an 'exegesis' of a unique kind.» (Donna Ladkin, Action Research)
