Abstract or description

Description of "Contemporary Encounters with Ancient Metaphysics":

18 essays breathe new life into the classic problems of ancient metaphysics using contemporary continental materialisms and realisms

In this volume, leading philosophers address the varied, volatile and novel encounters between contemporary and antique thought. They reconceive and redeploy the problems of ancient metaphysics: one and the many, the potential and the actual, the material and immaterial, the divine and the world itself. Alongside these essays are three original and previously unpublished translations of texts by Gilles Deleuze, Pierre Aubenque and Barbara Cassin.
