    Aristotle on perception.Stephen Everson - 1997 - New York: Oxford University Press.
    Everson presents a comprehensive new study of Aristotle's account of perception and related mental capacities. Recent debate about Aristotle's theory of mind has focused on this account, which is Aristotle's most sustained and detailed attempt to describe and explain the behavior of living things. Everson places this account in the context of Aristotle's natural science as a whole, showing how Aristotle applies the explanatory tools he developed in other works to the study of perceptual cognition.

    Epistemology: Companions to Ancient Thought, Vol. 1.Stephen Everson (ed.) - 1990 - Cambridge University Press.
    This volume deals with Epistemology. The period from the sixth century BC to the second and third centuries AD was one of the most fertile for the theory of knowledge, and the range of 'epistemic states' explored in the ancient texts is much wider than those to be found in contemporary discussions of epistemology or cognition. Greek philosophers approached these problems in a great variety of ways, from the extreme relativism of Protagoras to the scepticism of the Pyrrhonists, and the (...)

    Psychology: Companions to Ancient Thought, Vol. 2.Stephen Everson (ed.) - 1991 - New York: Cambridge University Press.
    This second Companion deals with the ancient theories of the psyche. The essays range over more than eight hundred years of psychological enquiry and provide critical analyses not only of the ancient discussions of the nature of the psyche and its states, but of such central topics as perception, subjectivity, the explanation of action, and what it is to be a person. In examining the wide variety of the different psychological theories offered by the ancient thinkers, from the increasingly complex (...)

    A Unified Moral Terrain?Stephen Everson - 2006 - Journal of Ethics and Social Philosophy 2 (1):1-39.
    In his book What We Owe to Each Other, Thomas Scanlon proposes what he calls a ‘contractualist’ explanation of what he describes as ‘a central part of the territory called morality’, i.e. our duties to other rational creatures. If Scanlon is right, the fact that another creature is rational generates a particular kind of moral constraint on how we may act towards it: one should ‘treat rational creatures only in ways that would be allowed by principles that they could not (...)

    This third Companion To Ancient Thought is devoted to ancient theories of language. The chapters range over more than eight hundred years of philosophical enquiry, and provide critical analyses of all the principal accounts of how it is that language can have meaning and how we can come to acquire linguistic understanding. The discussions move from the naturalism examined in Plato's Cratylus to the sophisticated theories of the Hellenistic schools and the work of St Augustine. The relations between thought about (...)

  25. Perception and Its Proper Objects.Stephen Everson - 1997 - In Aristotle on perception. New York: Oxford University Press.
    Everson discusses the five senses and their proper objects; e.g. sound for hearing, colour for sight. The senses, Everson argues, are essentially related to their proper objects because they are essentially such as to be affected by them. There is thus an intrinsic relationship between a proper object and its proper sense, and this, Everson argues, is causal, rather than conceptual or logical. This being so, perception requires a scientific investigation.

    Perception and Material Explanation.Stephen Everson - 1997 - In Aristotle on perception. New York: Oxford University Press.
    Everson has argued that material change does occur in the perceiving sense organ; the final chapter consists of his argument that material changes are a crucial part of the explanation of perceptual awareness of the organ. Whenever there is a formal change, Everson argues, there will also be a material change,, and these determine formal changes. Everson concludes, then, that Aristotle accepts explanatory physicalism, or the thesis that all perpetual events can be explained by reference to material alterations that determine (...)

  27. Perceptual Content.Stephen Everson - 1997 - In Aristotle on perception. New York: Oxford University Press.
    Everson examines Aristotle's use of the term empeiria, particularly as it appears in Metaphysics I.1 and Posterior Analytics II.19. Empeiria is usually translated as ‘experience’, but Everson argues that it ought to be interpreted as ‘an acquired perceptual concept’. Such concepts are involved in determining the content of perceptual experience. On this account, perceptual awareness is a combination of phantasia and the presence or absence of a certain empeiria, i.e. of the acquired perceptual concept appropriate for the perceptual awareness in (...)

  28. Perceptual Change and Material Change.Stephen Everson - 1997 - In Aristotle on perception. New York: Oxford University Press.
    Everson introduces the ‘spiritualist’ and the ‘literalist’ readings. He offers some criticism of the ‘spiritualist reading’ in this chapter. The spiritualist must explain why the matter of a sense organ is not affected in perception. Everson argues that Aristotle's account implies that there is material change of the sense organ in perception. Firstly, there is Aristotle's insistence that each sense organ has a particular material constitution, and secondly, there is the claim that, in perception, the sense organ becomes like the (...)

    Proper Sensibles and Secondary Qualities.Stephen Everson - 1997 - In Aristotle on perception. New York: Oxford University Press.
    Everson argues that Aristotle does not think of colours, sounds, as secondary qualities; rather, all sensible qualities for Aristotle are primary qualities. This implies a very ‘direct’ notion of perception; for instance, I see red because my eye undergoes a change, a material alteration that can be fully accounted for in non‐perceptual terms. This alteration differs form non‐perceptual alteration in that it involves awareness. Everson concludes that the textual evidence in both the psychological and physical works supports the literalist reading.

    Thrasymachus on Justice, Rulers, and Laws in Republic I.Stephen Everson - 2020 - Journal of Ancient Philosophy 14 (2):76-98.
    One issue of contention amongst scholars of the Republic is whether Thrasymachus initially espouses a conventionalist account of justice, according to which just actions are merely those which are lawful; required, or at least allowed, by the laws passed by the ruler of the state. A further question is then whether his initial conceptions of rulers and laws are positivist ones, such that to be a ruler or law of a state is simply determined by the state’s constitution. At 340c (...)

  32. The Perceptual System.Stephen Everson - 1997 - In Aristotle on perception. New York: Oxford University Press.
    Everson gives an account of the perceptual system as a whole, and also examines the connection between perception and phantasia, or imagination. Everson argues that Aristotle has two notions of phantasia, a technical sense, and a more general sense. The technical sense refers to quasi‐perceptual states, such as dreams, or remembrances, where no sense object is present to the perceiver. The general sense takes phantasia in the sense of appearances generally speaking; thus in this sense, take all perceptions as a (...)

    Aristotle on Perception.Iakovos Vasiliou & Stephen Everson - 1999 - Philosophical Review 108 (2):282.
    This is an important book for the specialist in Aristotelian natural science and philosophy of mind. While its overall aims are more sweeping—to show how the account of perception is an application of the explanatory method of the Physics and to argue that Aristotle’s resulting method of explaining mental activity has substantive advantages over contemporary accounts in philosophy of mind —much of its most successful argument is a sustained and detailed attack on a position made famous by Myles Burnyeat.
