    Aristotle's Definition of Pleasure.Van Riel Gerd - 2000 - Ancient Philosophy 20 (1):119-138.
  2. Does a Perfect Activity Necessarily Yield Pleasure? An Evaluation of the Relation Between Pleasure and Activity in Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics VII and X.Gerd van Riel - 1999 - International Journal of Philosophical Studies 7 (2):211-224.
    In his discussion of pleasure, Aristotle assumes the thesis that a perfect activity always and necessarily yields pleasure. The occurrence of pleasure is even presented as a sign that the activity is perfect. But this assumption seems to be too easy. It is possible that we do feel pleasure in activities which are not perfectly performed, and on the other hand, it is not certain at all that I will enjoy a perfect activity. Pleasure falls into the category of what (...)

    “Wat moet ik doen?” Aristoteles over phronèsis en praktisch intellect.Van Riel Gerd - 2006 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 68 (3):475-506.
    Ethics of any kind basically assume that all human beings by nature aim at happiness. However, this general starting point has to be made concrete in order to be relevant for action, and hence suitable for moral appreciation. What does my happiness consist in? Contrary to what has often been taken for granted, the concrete aim is not instrumental or subsidiary to the overall aim of happiness. To me, my particular aim is rather identical with happiness. The choice I make (...)

    Plato en aristoteles twee paradigma's Van genot.Van Riel Gerd - 2001 - Tijdschrift Voor Filosofie 63 (3):493-516.
    According to Plato, pleasure consists in the replenishment of a lack, i.e., in restoring the natural condition. At first sight, this might seem to mean that pleasure is always linked to previous pain. However Plato stresses the importance of so-called ‘true’ or ‘pure’ pleasure, which is not paired by pain. The acceptance of this type of pleasure depends on a dissociation of the definition of pleasure and pain from the physiological condition that underlies them . The latter are inescapable: our (...)

  15. The Cambridge History of Philosophy in Late Antiquity.Elizabeth Deplma Digeser, Angela Longo, Carlos Steel, David Blank, Gerd van Riel & Jan Opsomer - 2011 - Cambridge University Press.
    The Cambridge History of Philosophy in Late Antiquity comprises over forty specially comissioned essays by experts on the philosophy of the period 200-800 C.E. Designed as a successor to The Cambridge History of Later Greek and Early Medieval Philosophy , it takes into account some forty years of scholarship since the publication of that volume. The contributors examine philosophy as it entered literature, science and religion, and offer new and extensive assessments of philosophers who until recently have been mostly ignored. (...)
