    Eros and Mind.Ronna Burger - 2019 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 23 (2):365-380.
    While Plato and Aristotle both recognize the importance of friendship and love, Aristotle seems to be as much the philosopher of philia as Plato is of eros. Aristotle’s extensive discussion of friendship in the Nicomachean Ethics includes only a few scattered remarks about eros. Following the thread of those remarks, however, uncovers a movement from the disparagement of eros, contrasted with friendship of the virtuous, to its elevation as the shared experience of philosophic friendship. In the quite different context of (...)

  3. Aristotle's Dialogue with Socrates: On the "Nicomachean Ethics".Ronna Burger - 2009 - University of Chicago Press.
    What is the good life for a human being? Aristotle’s exploration of this question in the _Nicomachean Ethics_ has established it as a founding work of Western philosophy, though its teachings have long puzzled readers and provoked spirited discussion. Adopting a radically new point of view, Ronna Burger deciphers some of the most perplexing conundrums of this influential treatise by approaching it as Aristotle’s dialogue with the Platonic Socrates. Tracing the argument of the _Ethics_ as it emerges through that approach, (...)

    The Thumotic Soul.Ronna Burger - 2003 - Epoché: A Journal for the History of Philosophy 7 (2):151-167.
    In book IV of the Republic, Socrates offers an analysis of the tripartite structure of the soul as a perfect match-up to the class structure of the city. But the deeds that produce those speeches reveal the fixed relation among three independent parts to be the result of a dynamic process of self-division. This self-division is the work, more specifically, of thumos or spiritedness, which first cuts reason from desire, then separates itself from each in turn. By following this “plot,” (...)

    Holiness and Justice: An Interpretation of Plato's Euthyphro.Ronna Burger - 1983 - Review of Metaphysics 37 (1):156-157.
    The "and" in this title is meant to signify a merely verbal duality; for the thesis of the book is that holiness "correctly conceived" cannot be distinguished from justice, or for that matter from virtue as such. This conclusion is prefigured in the opening chapter "Historical Background," which begins with a consideration of the "indefinitely extended" meaning of terms for holiness or piety. Eusebeia "right reverence," for example, is said not to refer only to acts directly pertaining to the relation (...)

    The Deathday of Socrates: Living, Dying, and Immortality--The Theater of Ideas in Plato's Phaedo.Ronna Burger - 1983 - Review of Metaphysics 37 (1):113-115.
    To his gratification, Jerome Eckstein admits, his previous book on Plato's Meno "was more warmly received by artists, novelists, and cooks" ; he has not abandoned that audience in this study of Plato's Phaedo, which is inspired, nevertheless, by a desire "to convince a few more professors." The Deathday of Socrates does not, however, in Platonic fashion, address a variety of readers on different levels through the same words; instead it is divided into parts, some of which are intended to (...)

    Engaging a broad range of Platonic dialogues, this collection of essays by distinguished scholars in political theory and philosophy explores the relation of Socratic philosophizing to those activities with which it is typically opposed—such as tyranny, sophistry, poetry, and rhetoric. The essays show that the harder one tries to disentangle Socrates’ own activity from that of its apparent opposite, the more entangled they become; yet, it is only by taking this entanglement seriously that the distinctive character of Socratic philosophy emerges.
