  1. Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics: An Introduction.Michael Pakaluk - 2005 - Cambridge University Press.
    This is an engaging and accessible introduction to the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle's great masterpiece of moral philosophy. Michael Pakaluk offers a thorough and lucid examination of the entire work, uncovering Aristotle's motivations and basic views while paying careful attention to his arguments. The chapter on friendship captures Aristotle's doctrine with clarity and insight, and Pakaluk gives original and compelling interpretations of the Function Argument, the Doctrine of the Mean, courage and other character virtues, Akrasia, and the two treatments of pleasure.

    Degrees of Separation in the Phaedo.Michael Pakaluk - 2003 - Phronesis 48 (2):89 - 115.
    It can be shown that, if we assume 'substance dualism', or the real distinctness of the soul from the body, then the standard objections to the Cyclical Argument in the "Phaedo" fail. So charity would presumably require that we take substance dualism to be presupposed by that argument. To do so would not beg any question, since substance dualism is a significantly weaker thesis than the immortality of the soul. Moreover, there is good textual evidence in favor of this presumption.

    Is the Common Good of Political Society Limited and Instrumental?Michael Pakaluk - 2001 - Review of Metaphysics 55 (1):57 - 94.
    Through a careful discussion of the relevant texts in De Regno and the Summa Theologiae, the author argues that Aquinas understands the political common good to include the full virtue and complete happiness of all of the citizens, as related to one another by bonds of justice and civic friendship. It is not something limited and instrument, as John Finnis has recently argued. Yet that the common good has this character for Aquinas does not imply that he regards political authority (...)

    I provide a reading of Reid as an 'encyclopaedist', in Alasdair MacIntyre's sense, that is, as a scientist who conceives of himself as part of a broader scientific community, and who aims to make a contribution through work in a particular field. Reid's field is pneumatology. On this conception, Reid's recourse to 'common sense' is of a piece with the postulation, by any scientist, of a natural endowment for members of the same ostensible kind. Reid should therefore be understood as (...)

  13. Nicomachean Ethics, Books Viii and Ix.Michael Pakaluk (ed.) - 1999 - Oxford University Press UK.
    In Books VIII and IX of his masterpiece of moral philosophy, the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle gives perhaps the most famous of all philosophical discussions of friendship.

Pakaluk's fresh and scrupulously accurate translation is accompanied by a detailed philosophical commentary which reveals the remarkably coherent structure of the books and unfolds with lucidity the various arguments (...)

    The Doctrine of Relations in Bertrand Russell's Principles of Mathematics.Michael Pakaluk - 1992 - Tópicos: Revista de Filosofía 2:153-182.
    La pregunta por la naturaleza de las relaciones es de gran importancia en los escritos tempranos de Bentrand Russell, ya que sus desacuerdos con el idealismo británico se centraban en las relaciones, y su filosofía de las matemáticas depende crucialmente de las relaciones. A pesar de esto, no hay una discusión sistemática y extendida sobre las relaciones en el Russell temprano. Después de examinar la definición de relación de Russell, el autor examina crítica y sistemáticamente los puntos de vista de (...)

    This is intended to be a foundational study in what the author claims is a new branch of ethics, "genethics," which has as its distinctive subject matter three sorts of questions: Should some human being or group of human beings come into existence? If so, how many? Of these, what should they be like? Heyd maintains that these questions are posed for the first time, or in a distinctive way, because of developments in biotechnology, and that they cannot be resolved (...)

    The Idea of Progress in Eighteenth-Century Britain.Michael Pakaluk - 1991 - Review of Metaphysics 45 (1):149-150.
    The author aims to write intellectual history in a traditional cast of a particular idea, the idea of progress, among a particular elite, the educated class of Britain roughly between 1730 and 1789. He describes the idea of progress as "belief in the movement over time of some aspect or aspects of human existence, within a social setting, toward a better condition". This admittedly broad definition is adopted in order to encompass belief in various sorts of progress. One might wonder (...)

  44. Aristotle's Theory of Friendship.Michael Pakaluk - 1988 - Dissertation, Harvard University
    This thesis is an investigation of Aristotle's theory of friendship, as found in books VIII and IX of the Nicomachean Ethics. It has two major concerns: first, Aristotle's theory of goodness; second, Aristotle's view of the relationship between self-love and love of another. Aristotle's theory of goodness is important, because friendship consists of love, and love is always on account of some good. Thus, Aristotle's distinctions among various goods underlie his theory of the various sorts of friendships and their nature. (...)
