  1. Francesca Alesse (forthcoming). Dio, anima e intelligibili nella Stoa. Chôra 9:365-381.
    L’article analyse les témoignages stoïciens qui définissent la divinité comme «intellect» et comme «âme du monde», et qui permettent de déterminer les contenus de la pensée divine comme logoi, c’est-à-dire certains «discours» ou «raisonnements». En premier lieu, on examine les mots νοερόν, et νοητόν pour établir à quelles réalités les Stoïciens confèrent les caractères d’intelligence et d’intelligibilité et comment ils décrivent la pensée scientifique à laquelle ils comparent la pensée divine. En second lieu, on examine la théorie des raisons séminales (...)

  3. Julie Casteigt (forthcoming). 'La science de l'âme est plus certaine que toute autre science'. Une interprétation eckhartienne du témoignage (Jn 8, 17). [REVIEW] Chôra 9:295-320.
    ‘The Science of the Soul is Surer than every other Science’. An Eckhartian Interpretation of Bearing Witness (John 8 :17). Why does the knowledge of the soul constitute the surest science, according to the thesis that Meister Eckhart takes from Aristotle ? Here is the reason he gives : «Concerning what is within us, we are not seeking the testimony and approval of anyone else». But the argument of the uselessness of the testimony of another seems paradoxical in the context (...)

  4. Annick Charles‑Saget (forthcoming). Le statut des âmes dans les Éléments de théologie. Chôra 9:355-363.
    Les derniers théorèmes des Éléments de Théologie de Proclus portent sur les âmes. La question que nous posons peut se dire ainsi : comment Proclus a-t-il pu, contrairement aux indications platoniciennes, insérer dans un écrit inspiré par la méthode mathématique, un développement sur les âmes? À quel prix cette méthode peut-elle être compatible avec l’espace du divin? On s’interrogera aussi bien sur les traits de l’essence des âmes qui peuvent être posés que sur ceux qui ne peuvent être atteints. Ce (...)

  5. Andrei Cornea (forthcoming). La prénotion d'Épicure est‑elle d'inspiration platonicienne? Chôra 9:203-216.
    The article calls in question the widely held opinion that Epicurus developed his concept of prolepsis as an empirical “alternative response” to the Platonic Forms. One tries to show that in fact the prolepsis and the Form produce two different types of knowledge and that their difference goes beyond the fact that the former is empirical while the latter is not: the prolepsis is based on recognition and strives to ascertain the identity of the perceived things, while the Form is (...)

    The paper raises the question of the relationship between the description of the soul as logos and the description of its cognitive activities as logismos in Plotinus’ Enneads V, 1 [10] et IV, 3 [27]. It first offers an interpretation of the definition of the soul as a logos of the intellect in V, 1 [10]. Then it scrutinises the use of the terms logismos and logizesthai in the same treatise and compares it to a similar use of these terms (...)

  7. Laurent Lavaud (forthcoming). Dire le divin. Chôra 9:103-124.
    Cet article se propose d’examiner les rapports complexes qu’entretiennent Eunome et Grégoire de Nysse vis-à-vis de Plotin, en ce qui concerne la capacité du langage humain à dire le divin. D’un côté, Eunome trouve dans le système hiérarchisé des principes plotiniens et dans la théorie néoplatonicienne de l’homonymie des points d’appui pour étayer sa propre vision des rapports entre les Personnes divines. Mais de l’autre, l’apophatisme de Plotin présente de profondes affinités avec le projet de Grégoire de préserver le mystère (...)

  8. Alain Le Boulluec (forthcoming). La fonction des images et des comparaisons dans le Dialogue sur l'âme et la résurrection de Grégoire de Nysse. Chôra 9:125-147.
    The rhetorical and demonstrative function of images and comparisons in Gregory of Nyssa’s De anima et resurrectione is well known. They aim at warranting the faith in resurrection and making it desirable. The prospect of this study is to show that they belong to the progress of the debate such as Gregory has composed it. Their quality changes while the author moves from the philosophical likelihood to the truth of the Scriptures. He opposes one secular image to a biblical one (...)

  9. Jan‑Ivar Lindén (forthcoming). Intentionnalité et perception. Chôra 9:339-352.
    Intentionality is a key concept in the phenomenological tradition, but also figures in several other currents of contemporary thought, often as a criteria of consciousness. Husserl adopted the principle of intentionality from Franz Brentano, who was heavily influenced by Aristotle and medieval Aristotelian tradition. Considering that intentionality means a direction of thought or behaviour, it is quite evident that Aristotle remains a major reference in this context : through the idea of natural entelechies, the theory of life, perception and thinking (...)

  11. Kim Sang Ong‑Van‑Cung (forthcoming). Le moi et l'intériorité chez Augustin et Descartes. Chôra 9:321-338.
    It is somehow usual to grant that Augustine has given a former presentation of the famous argument of Descartes named the Cogito, and we ordinary think that the difference between the two authors is that the first one thinks of the inhabitation of Truth or Verbum, which transcends the ego. The paper is an attempt to think in a different way the sources of interiority in Augustine and Descartes. Based on Confessions and on De Trinitate, I trace the Greek sources (...)

  12. Miriam C. D. Peixoto (forthcoming). L'activité de l'âme démocritéenne. Chôra 9:217-242.
    The thought of the ancient atomists about the activity of the soul in the body is an important chapter in the history of reflection on the soul in ancient philosophy. A review of testimonies and fragments attributed to Democritus of Abdera shows its singular conception of the soul as a complex network of transactions through which it exercises, inside compound bodies, its role in driving principle of beings animated. These texts show the tension and dynamism that characterize the activity of (...)

    The epimeleia tês psyches, that is, the formation and purification of the soul, is an important topic in Ancient Philosophy. As the soul is immaterial it can be difficult to understand what is meant by the idea of a formation of the soul. Many philosophers in Antiquity try to explain the meaning of the formation of the soul by using linguistic imagery, that is, similes, metaphors and myths. In this paper some of these images, in particular, the images of the (...)

    Cet article commence par rappeler quelques éléments de la vie et de l’oeuvre d’Aelred de Rievaulx, connu comme philosophe de l’amitié. Il situe ensuite son discours sur l’âme au sein du regain d’intérêt pour ce sujet manifesté dans l’ordre cistercien par des auteurs comme Guillaume de Saint-Thierry, Isaac de l’Étoile ou l’auteur du De spiritu et anima, mais aussi chez les Victorins. Il en vient ensuite à la spécificité du discours d’Aelred tel qu’on le trouve dans son dialogue sur l’âme, (...)
