    Aristotle on the Philosophical Elements of Historia.Silvia Carli - 2011 - Review of Metaphysics 65 (2):321-349.
    This paper offers an interpretation and a defense of Aristotle’s view of history. According to a common reading of the Poetics, the philosopher intends to establish a dichotomy between history and poetry. On this view, the former speaks only of particulars because it relates events that are accidentally related to one another, whereas the latter speaks of universals because it organizes events according to causal relations of probability and necessity. A careful reading of the relevant passages of the Poetics and (...)

    Partial Truth in Aristotle’s Metaphysics.Silvia Carli - 2019 - International Philosophical Quarterly 59 (3):289-308.
    This paper explores the status of partial truths, i.e., statements that are partially true and partially false, in Aristotle’s Metaphysics. Contrary to what some scholars have suggested, it argues that partial truths are not confined to reputable opinions that have not yet been clarified and disambiguated. Rather, they have a more central role in Aristotle’s investigation. First, I propose that the fundamental question of being, namely, “What is substance?” is such that even our best attempts to answer it may never (...)

    The Love Affair Between Philosophy and Poetry: Aristotle's Poetics and Narrative Identity.Silvia Carli - 2015 - Southern Journal of Philosophy 53 (2):151-177.
    In order to grasp the distinctive character of the object imitated in tragedies, Aristotle's Poetics introduces a new notion of action, which does not refer to individual ethical deeds as in the Ethics. Rather, it signifies a whole with a beginning, a middle, and an end, whose constitutive components are events. This paper argues that the notion of agents undergoes a parallel transformation in the treatise on poetry. It no longer refers exclusively to the authors of ethical deeds, but to (...)

    The Most Complete Activity.Silvia Carli - 2018 - International Philosophical Quarterly 58 (2):191-208.
    This paper provides an interpretation of Aristotle’s claim that activities such as seeing, which are complete in form, can nevertheless be more or less complete depending on the condition of the faculty and the character of the object on which the faculty acts. After reviewing and criticizing current interpretations, it argues that activities that are complete in form are more or less complete in that they can attain their end to a lesser or greater degree. The notion of degrees of (...)
