  2. The Powers of Aristotle's Soul.Thomas Kjeller Johansen - 2012 - Oxford University Press UK.
    Thomas Kjeller Johansen presents a new account of Aristotle's major work on psychology, the De Anima. He argues that Aristotle explains a variety of psychological phenomena--including perception, intellect, memory, and imagination--by reference to the soul's capacities, and considers how Aristotle adopts and adapts this theory in his later works.

    Plato's Natural Philosophy: A Study of the Timaeus-Critias.Thomas Kjeller Johansen - 2004 - Cambridge University Press.
    Plato's dialogue the Timaeus-Critias presents two connected accounts, that of the story of Atlantis and its defeat by ancient Athens and that of the creation of the cosmos by a divine craftsman. This book offers a unified reading of the dialogue. It tackles a wide range of interpretative and philosophical issues. Topics discussed include the function of the famous Atlantis story, the notion of cosmology as 'myth' and as 'likely', and the role of God in Platonic cosmology. Other areas commented (...)

    Aristotle on the Logos of the Craftsman.Thomas Kjeller Johansen - 2017 - Phronesis 62 (2):97-135.
    Aristotle thinks that an account, alogos, of some sort is characteristic of craft,technē. Some scholars think that thelogoselement oftechnēis tagged onto experience as a theoretical element not directly engaged in successful production: I argue instead that thelogosgrounds the productive ability of craft, and also that is practically orientated in a way that distinguishes it from thelogosof theoretical science. Understanding thelogosof craft thus helps us explain how the craftsman differs both from the merely experienced practitioner and from the theoretical scientist.

    The Seperation of the Soul From Body in Plato’s Phaedo.Thomas Kjeller Johansen - 2017 - Philosophical Inquiry 41 (2-3):17-28.
    The view that the soul can exist separately from the body is commonly associated with dualism. Since Plato’s Phaedo argues that the soul is immortal and survives the death of the body, there seems to be reason to call Plato, in that dialogue at least, a ‘dualist’. Yet, as we know, there are many kinds of dualism, so we have thereby not said very much. Let me therefore start with some distinctions. First of all, we can distinguish between two kinds (...)

    The Principle That ‘Like Perceives Like’ in Theophrastus’ De Sensibus.Thomas Kjeller Johansen - 2020 - Rhizomata 7 (2):226-248.
    This paper considers Theophrastus’ use in the De sensibus of the principles that like perceives like and that unlike perceives unlike to criticise his predecessors. It is argued that the aporiai that arise from either position serve to motivate the view of perception articulated by Aristotle in the De anima.

  9. Productive Knowledge in Ancient Philosophy: The Concept of Technê.Thomas Kjeller Johansen (ed.) - 2020 - Cambridge University Press.
    This work investigates how ancient philosophers understood productive knowledge or technê and used it to explain ethics, rhetoric, politics and cosmology. In eleven chapters leading scholars set out the ancient debates about technê from the Presocratic and Hippocratic writers, through Plato and Aristotle and the Hellenistic age, ending in the Neoplatonism of Plotinus and Proclus. Amongst the many themes that come into focus are: the model status of ancient medicine in defining the political art, the similarities between the Platonic and (...)
