Item description for Theophrastus of Eresus: Sources for His Life, Writings Thought and Influence : Commentary : Psychology (Texts 265-327) (Philosophia Antiqua) by Pamela Huby...

This volume forms part of the large international Theophrastus project started by Brill in 1992. Together with volumes comprising the texts and translations, the commentary volumes provide an up-to-date collection of fragments and testimonia relating to Theophrastus, Aristotle's pupil and successor as head of the Lyceum. This is the fourth volume of commentary on "Theophrastus of Eresus: Sources for his life, writings, thought and influence", and is on the psychological and epistemological material. It includes contributions by Dimitri Gutas on the Arabic passages, and Pamela Huby has covered the rest, including close study of the quotations given by Priscian of Lydia and the extensive but little known medieval Latin passages. Different approaches to the use of medieval material as evidence for Theophrastus' thought are discussed in the introduction.

Reviews - What do customers think about Theophrastus of Eresus: Sources for His Life, Writings Thought and Influence : Commentary : Psychology (Texts 265-327) (Philosophia Antiqua)?

For the Theophrastian student...  Mar 21, 2001
Sources

Pamela Huby is a member of Project Theophrastus, a group dedicated to collecting the lost works of Theophrastus through quotes, paraphrases, and references made of him by his contemporaries. The majority of these contemporaries were followers of the Peripatetic school of thought, founded by Aristotle and continued by Theophrastus. Commentary 4: Psychology is a mixture of material descended from Theophrastus on the subject of psychology, and Huby's original commentary related to the subject. To assist her in the piecing together of material descended from Theophrastus, she looked to the assistance of Dimitri Gutas for Arabic translation and clarification, as much of this material comes from Arabic Peripatetic/Theophrastian followers.

Summary

This book was written by a historian, for historians. It is verbatim, placed in an elaborate and careful system to aid historians in researching authentic Theophrastian writings through her book, though this system can be complicated to the unaccustomed reader. Commentary 4: Psychology covers only what Theophrastus himself covered, adding necessary bibliography and indices to allow the reader to bridge the gap of time between this book and the original ideas of Theophrastus himself.

Evaluation

I personally have found this book to be useful as a quotation resource. It did not help me understand much of Theophrastian studies, but once I had acquired some understanding from other sources, I was able to find a wealth of supportive material for the examinations and arguments that I had begun to formulate. I believe that this was Huby's primary purpose for writing, and so that is how I was best able to use it. Because of her purpose, Huby maintained a very objective standpoint on the material descended from Theophrastus. Her focus was very much: "this" is the best reconstruction of what Theophrastus said on psychology, which conveys "this" about his understanding on psychology. In a sentence, Commentary 4: Psychology is an excellent resource as long as its use is limited to supportive material.
