Description

This volume, the thirty-third year of published proceedings, contains four papers and commentaries presented to the Boston Area Colloquium in Ancient Philosophy during academic year 2016-17. Paper topics include: a liar's paradox in Parmenides' Poem centered on the role of the goddess; Aristotelian logic as rooted in natural things, not mental entities, in Posterior Analytics; authorial freedom in Aristotle's Poetics rooted in the `likely and necessary'; Callicles' attack on philosophy as taking away one's substance and Socrates' concurrence to preserve its pursuit of truth and the good in Plato's Gorgias. The comments do their work in challenging some of these claims and supporting others. Contributors are Lloyd W. J. Aultman-Moore, Rose Cherubin, Shane Ewegen, Joseph M. Forte, Owen Goldin, Edward C. Halper, Jean-Marc Narbonne and Yale Weiss.
