    The Mechanical Hypothesis in Ancient Greek Natural Philosophy.Sylvia Berryman - 2009 - Cambridge University Press.
    It has long been thought that the ancient Greeks did not take mechanics seriously as part of the workings of nature, and that therefore their natural philosophy was both primitive and marginal. In this book Sylvia Berryman challenges that assumption, arguing that the idea that the world works 'like a machine' can be found in ancient Greek thought, predating the early modern philosophy with which it is most closely associated. Her discussion ranges over topics including balancing and equilibrium, lifting water, (...)

    Teleology Without Tears: Aristotle and the Role of Mechanistic Conceptions of Organisms.Sylvia Berryman - 2007 - Canadian Journal of Philosophy 37 (3):351-369.
    In this paper I outline a role for mechanistic conceptions of organisms in ancient Greek natural philosophy, especially the study of organisms. By ‘mechanistic conceptions’ I mean the use of ideas and techniques drawn from the field of mechanics to investigate the natural world. ‘Mechanistic conceptions’ of organisms in ancient Greek philosophy, then, are those that draw on the ancient understanding of the field called ‘mechanics’ — hê mêchanikê technê—to investigate living things, rather than those bearing some perceived similarity to (...)

    Euclid and the Sceptic: A Paper on Vision, Doubt, Geometry, Light and Drunkenness.Sylvia Berryman - 1998 - Phronesis 43 (2):176-196.
    Philosophy in the period immediately after Aristotle is sometimes thought to be marked by the decline of natural philosophy and philosophical disinterest in contemporary achievements in the sciences. But in one area at least, the early third century B.C.E. was a time of productive interaction between such disparate fields as epistemology, physics and geometry. Debates between the sceptics and the dogmatic philosophical schools focus on epistemological problems about the possibility of self-evident appearances, but there is evidence from Euclid's day of (...)

    Aristotle in the Ethics Wars.Sylvia Berryman - 2018 - Review of Metaphysics 71 (4):641-666.
    In the latter half of the twentieth century, some prominent ethicists turned to the history of philosophy to challenge the prevailing trend toward subjectivism or noncognitivism. G. E. M. Anscombe offered the first of several historical narratives challenging the world picture that undergirded this prevalence, narratives in which Aristotelian ethics is presented as a possible alternative. It is striking, however, how differently these narratives characterize the ancient–modern divide and how differently Aristotle is interpreted, particularly on the issue of his appeal (...)

  14. Aristotle on the Sources of the Ethical Life.Sylvia Berryman - 2019 - Oxford University Press.
    Sylvia Berryman offers a fresh understanding of Aristotle's ethical theory, challenging the common belief that he aimed to give it a biological foundation in human nature. Berryman reinterprets Aristotle's views as a 'middle way' between the metaphysical grounding offered by Platonists and sceptical or subjectivist alternatives.

    Ideology, Inquiry, and Antiquity: A Critical Notice of Lloyd’s The Ideals of Inquiry: An Ancient History.Sylvia Berryman - 2015 - Canadian Journal of Philosophy 45 (2):242-256.
    A discussion of Lloyd's Tarner Lectures at Trinity College. The importance of Lloyd's previous scholarship is characterized and these sweeping, erudite lectures are placed in the context of that scholarship. In the broadest terms, the lectures are a call to culturally and historically comparative study of human reasoning. At their heart is a comparative history of scientific theorizing from the ancients through to modern science. Lloyd rejects the positivist picture, and the view of modern and ancient science as discontinuous; he (...)

    Stoics, Epicureans and Sceptics: An Introduction to Hellenistic Philosphy.Sylvia Berryman - 1999 - Philosophical Review 108 (3):447-449.
    Sharples’s new introduction aims at providing a survey of the major Hellenistic philosophical schools to an audience with little or no background in philosophy or classics. Drawing on his experience teaching the subject to Classics undergraduates, he aims to present Hellenistic thought as a subject that might speak directly to the concerns of students. At this the book is successful. It is an ambitious task for a narrative of 133 pages: if the exposition seems at some points a bit rushed (...)
