John Philoponus' New Definition Of Prime Matter

RRP $491.99

This study provides the first full discussion of Philoponus' excursus on matter in contra Proclum XI. 1-8 which sets out the innovative definition of prime matter as three-dimensional extension. The author argues that Philoponus' definition was motivated primarily by philosophical problems in Neoplatonism. Philoponus employs the explanation of growth, the interpretation of Aristotle's category theory and the notions of formlessness and potentiality to substantiate his definition. To conclude, the book offers an assessment of the significance of Philoponus' innovation. It is demonstrated for the first time that Plotinus' view of matter exerted considerable influence on both Philoponus and Simplicius. Moreover, the structure of Syrianus' and Proclus' metaphysics prepared the way for Philoponus' account of prime matter.


The Computerization Of Work

RRP $247.99

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

The computerization of the workplace confronts us with a paradox. While almost everyone agrees that the fusion of new information and communication technologies (I/CT) is radically transforming the way society works, some individuals argue that the implementation of any single I/CT is disappointing. Studies report that these individual experiences in computerization often fail to measure up to the expectation. The Computerization of Work offers an explanation for the gap between the expectations and often less-than-satisfactory results. Written by renowned professionals in the field, this volume explores the subject matter through the discussion of theory and field studies as well as insights from other research.

Students and researchers alike will appreciate this rare look into the world of technology and society.
