Brief historical introduction

  • 1.
  • 2. To understand that every period or age has its own identity or characteristics.
  • 3.
  • 4. The Pre-Socratics were uninhibited in proposing bold theories on the largest possible scale.
  • 5. The analysis and evaluation of patterns of reasoning and argument.
  • 6. The importance of understanding in the pursuit of good life.
  • 7. The need to analyze the nature of human person.
  • 8. The importance of the concept of justice in defining the nature of political system.
  • 9. They used their reason to understand the world, without appealing to religion, revelation, authority or tradition.
  • 10.
  • 11.
  • 12. His wife Xantippe, said to be an ugly woman, bore him three children.
  • 13. He would go to the marketplace, the agora where he would discuss things, using dialectics or the so called Socratic Method.
  • 14. He was arrested and condemned to death because of two charges: (a) impiety, (b) corruption of the minds of the youth.
  • 15. He did not admit any guilt, he refused to be set free by friends, and he died after drinking glass of hemlock in the presence of friends.
  • 16.
  • 17. Like Socrates, Plato believes in “virtue is knowledge,” and the source of knowledge is virtue. It is not abstract, but concrete knowledge, not theoretical but practical knowledge. A man must know what is good so that he may do good.
  • 18.
  • 19. Reality consists of matter and form, and matter is a continuous process of developing or becoming.
  • 20. There is First Cause, source of all change, but is unchangeable itself. This, for him, is God.
  • 21. The goal of human life is happiness, to reach this is moderation or avoidance of extremes.
  • 22.
  • 23. During the decline of Greco-Roman civilization, Western philosophers turned their attention from the scientific investigation of nature and the search for happiness in this world, to the problem of salvation and life in another, better world.
  • 24. The torch of civilization in Western Europe was carried mainly by the Christian Church, where thought were conducted under the context of Christian doctrines.
  • 25. By the 3rd century AD, Christianity had spread throughout the Roman Empire. The religious teachings of the Gospels were combined by the Fathers of the Church with many of the philosophical concepts of the Greeks and Roman schools.
  • 26. The tendency of the philosophers during this period was to seek orthodoxy as well as truth. Nearly all medieval thinkers—Jewish, Christian, and Muslim—were determined to merge or synthesize philosophy with religion.
  • 27. Islamic civilization performed the function of preserving the culture of classical antiquity, particularly the philosophy of Aristotle.
  • 28. Their thoughts were more imposing than informative due to the prevalence and dominance of paganism and barbarianism.
  • 29.
  • 34.
  • 35. The 15th and 16th centuries were periods of radical social, political, and intellectual developments. The exploration of the world; the Reformation, with its emphasis on individual faith; the rise of commercial urban society; and the dramatic appearance of new ideas in all areas of culture stimulated the development of a new philosophical world view.
  • 36. By the end of the 15th century, the authority of medieval scholasticism—which utilized Neoplatonic and Aristotelian philosophy to support Christian theology—began to erode as many thinkers began to reject the scholastics’ excessive reliance on authority of earlier scholars and theologians.
  • 37. Just as religious reformers challenged ecclesiastical authority and made individual believers responsible for their own relation to God, prominent Renaissance thinkers proposed an analogous elimination of all appeals to authority in education and science.
  • 38. The Renaissance revival of Greek and Roman studies emphasized the value of the classics for their own sake, rather than for the relevance of Christianity.
  • 39. An explosion in shared ideas was made possible by the expansion of universities and the invention of the printing press. Educational practice was revolutionized by the recovery of ancient documents, the rejection of institutional authority, and renewed emphasis on individual freedom.
  • 40. Renaissance philosophers drifted away from abstract speculations in life after death and developed an intense interest in the visible world and in knowledge derived from concrete sensory experience.
  • 41. Political institutions and ethical principles ceased to be regarded as reflections of divine command and came to be seen as practical devices created by humans.
