    Nietzsche on Friendship.Robert C. Miner - 2010 - Journal of Nietzsche Studies 40 (1):47-69.
    In this analysis of his thought on friendship, I begin first by arguing that for Nietzsche friendship is undesirable or impossible with or between four human types. Insight on this point is valuable, because it provides clear vision of what friendship is not. Second, I will argue that Nietzsche takes superior friendship to be possible but rare, since it requires its participants to balance three pairs of opposing qualities that are difficult to keep in equilibrium. Third, I will show that (...)

    What Does Obligation Add to Virtue-Descriptions? Some Uses of Anscombe's Law/Game Analogy: Articles.Robert C. Miner - 2008 - Christian Bioethics 14 (2):165-174.
    We can describe certain actions as defective in a particular virtue, for example, as “unjust” or “intemperate.” We can take the additional step of describing such actions as “morally wrong” or “contrary to moral obligation.” A key claim of Elizabeth Anscombe's “Modern Moral Philosophy” is that if we choose to describe virtue-defective actions as “morally wrong,” because we are “obliged” or “bound” or “required” not to do them, we are in fact taking an additional step and that this step stands (...)

    Inglis, John. Spheres of Philosophical Inquiry and the Historiography of Medieval Philosophy.Robert C. Miner - 2000 - Review of Metaphysics 53 (3):706-708.
    Do not be put off by the cumbersome title of this book. Underneath a huge mass of erudition lies a simple yet powerful thesis. The thinkers of the high Middle Ages did not imagine themselves as contributors to metaphysics, epistemology, logic, ethics, or any of the autonomous but interconnected “spheres of philosophical inquiry” that most post-Enlightenment historians of medieval philosophy take for granted. In very different ways, Aquinas, Scotus, and Ockham use the materials of philosophy to describe and illuminate the (...)

    Nietzsche, Schmitt, and Heidegger in the Anti-Liberalism of Leo Strauss.Robert C. Miner - 2012 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2012 (160):9-27.
    ExcerptAfter emigrating to the United States, Leo Strauss taught political philosophy for thirty years, first at the New School for Social Research in New York and then at the University of Chicago, before retiring at St. John's College. Richard Wolin observes that he “seems to have deeply mistrusted day-to-day politics—a very strange stance, to be sure, for someone who made his living teaching political philosophy.”1 But is it really so strange? What in his German Gymnasium education, or his participation in (...)

    The Dependence of Descartes' Ontological Proof: Upon the Doctrine of Causa Sui.Robert C. Miner - 2002 - Revista Portuguesa de Filosofia 58 (4):873 - 886.
    Can God be the efficient cause of himself (causa sui,)? It is well known that Descartes answers this question in the affirmative, but it is considerably less clear why. The main contention of the essay is that Descartes advances the causa sui doctrine because he came to think that the ontological proof of Meditation V required it. We argue these contentions through a close analysis of Descartes' initial articulation of causa sui in response to Caterus, followed by attention to the (...)

    L’Etica Del Rinascimento Tra Platone E Aristotele.Robert C. Miner - 1999 - Review of Metaphysics 52 (3):716-717.
    This book is of great service to anyone who desires to think historically about ethics, but particularly to those wanting to learn more about the forms assumed by Aristotelian moral discourses during the Renaissance. For it is these forms that are typically overlooked and neglected, even by contemporary theorists who have persuasively argued that we should pay attention to the historical tradition of Aristotelian ethics.

  19. Nietzsche, Biology and Metaphor. [REVIEW]Robert C. Miner - 2003 - Review of Metaphysics 57 (1):162-164.
    —The main claim of this book is that if we situate Nietzsche’s thought within the historical context of nineteenth-century theories of evolution and degeneration, our comprehension of Nietzsche will significantly improve. Moore begins by questioning Heidegger’s dismissal of Nietzsche’s “alleged biologism.” He contends that Heideggerian approaches not only rest upon a false dichotomy between the metaphysical and the biological, but that they also can never make sense of “why Nietzsche mobilizes a wide array of biological metaphors, and from an early (...)

  20. Questions on Love and Charity: Summa Theologiae, Secunda Secundae, Questions 23–46.Robert C. Miner (ed.) - 2016 - Yale University Press.
    A fresh translation of _quaestiones_ from the _Summa theologiae _of Thomas Aquinas, edited by Robert Miner. This volume provides direct access to the medieval theologian’s deepest thinking about the supreme goal of human life—blessedness—and the virtue most intimately related to this goal—charity. The edition also contains Aquinas’s treatment of charity’s effects—love, joy, peace, and mercy—and the vices opposed to them, such as hatred, envy, and war. Featuring five supplementary essays by noted Aquinas scholars, the volume will enable readers to engage (...)

    Truth in the Making: Creative Knowledge in Theology and Philosophy.Robert C. Miner - 2004 - Routledge.
    Truth in the Making represents a sophisticated effort to map the complex relations between human knowledge and creative power, as reflected across more than half a millennium of philosophical enquiry. Showing the intimacy of this problematic to the work of Nicholas of Cusa, Bacon, Galileo, Descartes, Hobbes, Leibniz, Vico and David Lachterman, the book reveals how questions about creation apparently diluted by secularism in fact retain much of their potency today. If science could counterfeit or synthesize nature precisely from its (...)
