    The Parts of Prudence: Buridan, Odonis, Aquinas.Risto Saarinen - 2003 - Dialogue 42 (4):749-766.
    In Book VI, chaps. 9-11, of his Nicomachean Ethics Aristotle discusses practical wisdom, or prudence, in its relationship to eubulia, or good deliberation, and synesis, or good judgement, in regard to the results of deliberation. As a practical decision-making process which investigates the best means to reach a given end, and is thus concerned with particular actions, prudence employs both the deliberative and the judicative intellectual virtue. Thus, eubulia and synesis are not identical with prudence, but rather with its aspects (...)

    John Buridan and Donald Davidson on Akrasia.Risto Saarinen - 1993 - Synthese 96 (1):133-154.
    This article has two objectives. Firts, it is my aim to outline some medieval views concerning the acts that oppose one's better judgment. I will use Aristotle's term aktasia to denote the moral state of an agent behaving in this way. John Burdidan's (1285-1349) treatment of akrasia is especially relevant here. Second, it will be argued that some important philosophical ideas proposed receently by Donald Davidson, in his influential study 'How is Waekness of the Will Possible?', are anticipated in the (...)

  13. Recognition and Religion: A Historical and Systematic Study.Risto Saarinen - 2016 - Oxford University Press UK.
    Recognition and Religion: A Historical and Systematic Study outlines the first intellectual history of religious recognition, stretching from the New Testament to present day. Risto Saarinen connects the history of religion with philosophical approaches, arguing that philosophers owe a considerable historical and conceptual debt to the religious processes of recognition. At the same time, religious recognition has a distinctive profile that differs from philosophy in some important respects. Saarinen undertakes a systematic elaboration of the insights provided by the tradition of (...)

    The Language of Giving in Theology.Risto Saarinen - 2010 - Neue Zeitschrift für Systematicsche Theologie Und Religionsphilosophie 52 (3):268-301.
    This paper wants to bring about a “linguistic turn” in the current theological discussion on gifts and giving. It focuses on the linguistic constructions around “give” and their use in religious and theological texts. The linguistic approach is enriched with the help of Seneca's philosophy of gifts and services. Seneca's De beneficiis is not, however, interpreted as a handbook of anthropology and economic exchange, but as a guide to the proper use of the words “give” and “receive”. In the last (...)
