    Plato the myth maker.Luc Brisson - 1998 - Chicago, Ill.: University of Chicago Press. Edited by Gerard Naddaf.
    The word myth is commonly thought to mean a fictional story, but few know that Plato was the first to use the term muthos in that sense. He also used muthos to describe the practice of making and telling stories, the oral transmission of all that a community keeps in its collective memory. In the first part of Plato the Myth Maker , Luc Brisson reconstructs Plato's multifaceted description of muthos in light of the latter's Atlantis story. The second part (...)

    The Two-Triangle Universe of Plato’s Timaeus and the In(de)finite Diversity of the Universe.Salomon Ofman & Luc Brisson - 2021 - Apeiron 54 (4):493-518.
    In the present article, we consider the question of the primary elements in Plato’s Timaeus, the components of the whole universe reduced, by an extraordinarily elegant construction, to two right triangles. But how does he reconcile such a model with the infinite diversity of the universe? A large part of this study is devoted to Cornford’s explanation in his commentary of the Timaeus and its shortcomings, in order to finally propose a revised one, which we think to be entirely consistent (...)

    Lectures de Platon.Luc Brisson - 2000 - Paris: Vrin.
    Les etudes ici reunies rendent compte de ce que furent le contexte historique et litteraire de la redaction des dialogues platoniciens, puis de la maniere dont leur auteur a choisi de confronter sa philosophie a la mythologie, afin de mener une enquete sur le monde, l'ame et la cite. Ces lectures veulent prendre ainsi la mesure de ce qui nous eloigne aujourd'hui de Platon, mais suggerer encore qu'une histoire de la philosophie qui cherche a s'affranchir de l'anachronisme trace un chemin (...)

    How philosophers saved myths: allegorical interpretation and classical mythology.Luc Brisson - 2004 - Chicago: University of Chicago Press.
    This study explains how the myths of Greece and Rome were transmitted from antiquity to the Renaissance. Luc Brisson argues that philosophy was ironically responsible for saving myth from historical annihilation. Although philosophy was initially critical of myth because it could not be declared true or false and because it was inferior to argumentation, mythology was progressively reincorporated into philosophy through allegorical exegesis. Brisson shows to what degree allegory was employed among philosophers and how it enabled myth to take on (...)

    Can One Speak of Teleology In Plato?Luc Brisson - 2019 - In Evan Keeling & Luca Pitteloud (eds.), Psychology and Ontology in Plato. Springer Verlag.
    “Teleology,” a word invented in 1728 by Christian Wolff, has become a magic formula among those who are interested in Plato, Aristotle, and even the Stoics. Among our contemporaries, “teleology” in fact enables modern physical theories based on mechanical necessity to be opposed to ancient explanations that try to master chance by means of a good and benevolent intellect. The question in this paper will be to determine whether this explanation, which refers above all to Aristotle’s doctrine of causes and (...)

    L'article s'attaque aux racines mêmes du « mystère platonicien » en partant du constat de son caractère proprement « inexplicable »: qu'un auteur, dont on possède l'ensemble de l'œuvre écrite autorise des lectures, non seulement diverses, ce qui est légitime, mais également contradictoires, n'a aucun sens. L'article indique brièvement les éléments qui expliquent cette situation paradoxale et met en valeur les contributions de l'École de Tübingen (Krämer, Gaiser), qui insistent sur les « auto-témoignages » de Platon et sur la tradition (...)

    When, in Plato’s Parmenides 155e4–157b5, Parmenides refers to the instant (ἐξαίφνης), he is alluding to a paradox of Zeno, and not to an argument of Plato. Thus, in the second part of the Parmenides, the speaker is a fair representation of the historical Parmenides, and not a figment of Plato’s imagination.

    Logos and Logoi in Plotinus. Their nature and Function.Luc Brisson - 2009 - Schole 3 (2):433-444.
    The universe is the result of a production that pertains not to craft, but to nature. This production does not involve either reasoning or concepts, but is the result of a power that acts on matter like an imprint. The Intellect transmits the intelligible forms it harbors, to the hypostasis Soul, where they become rational formulas. The hypostasis Soul then transmits these rational formulas to the world soul, which produces animate and inanimate beings, as if it had been ordered to (...)

  24. Family, political power and money in the Neoplatonic School of Athens.Luc Brisson - 2017 - Schole 11 (2):333-340.
    How was the Neoplatonic School of Athens able to maintain itself for more than a century at Athens, in a hostile environment, while being the target of the opposition of the Christians who were not only in the majority, but also held political power? These are the questions this text seeks to answer. Although it does not promise any earth-shaking discovery, it will try to sketch a clear and precise portrait of the Neoplatonic School of Athens on the family, political (...)

La période d’abandon ne peut correspondre à la nôtre, au cours de laquelle, suivant Platon, les dieux sont actifs et jouent un rôle important. Un passage du Timée et surtout le (...)

    A oposição phúsis / tékhne em Plotino.Luc Brisson - 2013 - Archai: Revista de Estudos Sobre as Origens Do Pensamento Ocidental 10:63-72.
    Neste artigo, tenciono mostrar que é impossível concluir, como fez André Grabar, que há uma mudança da atitude de Plotino em relação à obra de arte. Plotino coloca sob o vocábulo tékhne toda uma série de atividades humanas associando artes, ofícios e inclusive ciências que não apresentam nenhum traço comum além daquele da competência. Além do mais, a tékhne não é associada à produção artística. Enfim, em Plotino assim como em Platão, a natureza precede sempre a tékhne; com efeito, somente (...)

    The Mathematical Anti-atomism of Plato’s Timaeus.Luc Brisson & Salomon Ofman - 2022 - Ancient Philosophy 42 (1):121-145.
    In Plato’s eponymous dialogue, Timaeus, the main character presents the universe as an (almost) perfect sphere filled by tiny, invisible particles having the form of four regular polyhedrons. At first glance, such a construction may seem close to an atomistic theory. However, one does not find any text in Antiquity that links Timaeus’ cosmology to the atomists, while Aristotle opposes clearly Plato to the latter. Nevertheless, Plato is commonly presented in contemporary literature as some sort of atomist, sometimes as supporting (...)

  35. La «matière» et la «nécessité» dans le Timée de Platon.Luc Brisson - 2012 - Hypnos. Revista Do Centro de Estudos da Antiguidade 28:1-17.
    C’est dans le Timée de Platon que trouve son origine ce que nous appelons «matière», terme qui traduit ce qu’Aristote a nommé húle, et dont il convient de préciser qu’il s’agit de la «matière première». Comme l’hypothèse de la «matière première» est destinée à résoudre un problème métaphysique, celui du substrat du changement physique, on comprend bien pourquoi la science moderne s’est désintéressée de la question, considérant que, si l’on accepte le principe suivant lequel «rien ne naît ni ne périt, (...)

    Relire les Éléments de théologie de Proclus: réceptions, interprétations antiques et modernes.Gwenaëlle Aubry, Luc Brisson, Philippe Hoffmann & Laurent Lavaud (eds.) - 2021 - Paris: Hermann.
    Les Eléments de théologie de Proclus constituent un monument philosophique radicalement singulier tant par son architecture propre que par la façon dont la tradition l'a revisité. Ordonnant, sous une forme géométrique, les principes de la métaphysique néoplatonicienne, ils ont à la fois constitué celle-ci en système et opéré comme le principal relais de sa transmission aux pensées byzantine, arabe et occidentale. Ce sont ces effets d'héritage et d'adaptation que les textes ici réunis visent à évaluer. Du Liber de causis à (...)

    Platão foi o primeiro a utilizar o termo mito no sentido que continuamos a dar a esse termo nas linguas modemas. Utilizando mito Platão descreve um certo tipo de discurso, fabricado pelos poetas na sociedade onde ele vive, a fim de substituí-lo por um outro, o Aóyos produzido pelos filósofos. Mesmo se mostrando muito crítico a respeito dos poetas que fabricam os mitos, Platão reconhece que os filósofos não podem viver sem os mitos. Assim, ele se inspira nos poetas para (...)

    É no Timeu de Platão encontra sua origem o que nomeamos «matéria», termo que traduz o que Aristóteles nomeou húle, e é conveniente precisar que se trata da «matéria primeira». Como a hipótese da «matéria primeira» é destinada a resolver um problema metafísico, o do substrato da mudança física, compreende-se bem por que a ciência moderna se desinteresou da questão, considerando que, se aceitamos o princípio segundo o qual «nada nasce nem perece, pois tudo se transforma», é suficiente descrever e (...)

    Between Matter and Body Mass () in the Sentences of Porphyry.Luc Brisson - 2010 - International Journal of the Platonic Tradition 4 (1):36-53.
    In the Corpus Hippocraticum and in tragedy, γκος is difficult to translate, for it corresponds to a very primitive notion, intuitively implying a confusion between two aspects that were gradually distinguished: 1) a thing's bulk or extension, and 2) an appreciation, as a function of its bulk and its extension, of the load represented by this thing, or its weight. This explains why the term usually designates something that has a certain mass. As an indefinite quantity of formless matter, this (...)

    This memorial essay on the French historian of philosophy Pierre Hadot (1922–2010) explores his life and work. Starting out from an ecclesiastical background and education, Hadot's interest in mysticism led him to study the late Greek Neoplatonists Plotinus and Porphyry, as well as the Latin Church Fathers. Elected first to the École pratique des hautes études and then to the Collège de France, Hadot developed his most influential idea, that ancient philosophy was not the construction of an abstract system of (...)
