Aristotle on the Nature of Analogy

#ad
Lexington Books #ad - This book will argue that these principles reveal a structure of analogy that discloses an inherent mobility of logos which enables it to reflect the intuitive and ever-changing principles of becoming. In this book, these are referred to as the mathematical interpretation and the correlative interpretation.

Traditionally, the concept of analogy in Aristotle has been treated along two lines of interpretation. The second and third principles are inseparable from logos but always remain hidden from addressability ana-logos. This book will argue that both of these interpretations overlook the nature of the Aristotelian analogy.

Aristotle on the Nature of Analogy #ad - In physics alpha, aristotle claims that these three principles are: 1 the being in its addressable form logos; 2 the course of becoming of that addressable being sterēsis; 3 the substance that remains the same throughout the change hypokeimenon. The structure of analogy can be taken from Aristotle’s discussion of the three principles of natural “becoming” in his Physics Alpha.

Although the first principle, logos, accounts for addressability, the other two do not. The mathematical approach claims that the Aristotelian analogy only accounts for proportional comparisons between usually four things. As such, the relationship between Logos and intuition nous can be reimagined. Focusing primarily on aristotle’s Physics Alpha, an attempt is made to establish the structure and significance of the Aristotelian analogy.

On the other hand, the correlative interpretation describes the Aristotelian analogy as something that unites the multiple uses of a single term the many uses of “healthy, ” for example.

Pre-school Learning in the Community: Strategies for Change Routledge Revivals

#ad
Routledge #ad - The authors argue that pre-school, as a transitional phase, could do much to reduce the shock, but that many of the efforts made for the under-fives simply expose them earlier to the contrast between home and school learning situations. Much of current educational theory and research at the time was concerned with the effect that pre-school education should have in accelerating development throughout the years of compulsory schooling.

They also stress that the effect of pre-school children on the social or psychological well-being of parents and children will be limited unless it takes account of and reaches out to the community to which they belong. For this reason a cultural shock is experienced by many children on joining school. This book, originally published in 1975, is an important contribution to the debate since it shows how the stages of pre-schooling affect the child, the family and the neighbourhood community.

The authors point out that pre-school stands at the intersection between the informal socialisation of the home and the more disciplined learning which takes place at school. They recognise that parents are educators and play a prominent part in the intellectual and social development of their children.

Pre-school Learning in the Community: Strategies for Change Routledge Revivals #ad - The authors offer several alternative approaches to pre-school organisation and content of the time and examine some specific examples, such as the Pre-school Playgroup movement and the Leicester Home-Start scheme. The book arose out of the authors’ participation in several educational projects, including the Educational Priority Area Project which ran for three years during 1969-71.

In particular it draws on their working experience which was based at the Red House Education Centre in a South Yorkshire mining community near Doncaster.
