Ethica Dialectica: A Study of Ethical Oppositions
Hardcover. 164 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.4in. x 0.7in.Dialectic is a fulcrum word. Aristotle attacked this belief, saying that the dialectic was only suitable for some purpose- to enquire into mens beliefs, to arrive at truths about eternal forms of things, known as Ideas, which were fixed and un- changing and constituted reality for Plato. Aristotle said there is also the method of science, or physical method, which observes physical facts and arrives at truths about substances, which undergo change. This duality ofform and substance and the scientific method of arriving at facts about substances were central to Aristotles philosophy. Thus the dethronement of dialectic from what Socrates and Plato held it to be was ab- solutely essential for Aristotle, and dialectic was and still is a fulcrum word . . . I think it was Coleridge who said everyone is either a Plato- nist or an Aristotelian . . . Plato is the essential Buddha-seeker who appears again and again in each generation, moving on- ward and upward toward the one. Aristotle is the eternal motorcycle mechanic who prefers the many. R.
