Get Die Anwendung von anerkannten Meinungen (endoxa) in der PDF

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2002 im Fachbereich Philosophie - Philosophie der Antike, be aware: 1,3, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Veranstaltung: Aritstoteles: Topik, nine Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: An mehreren Stellen im Corpus aristotelicum werden Sätze erwähnt, die als endoxa bezeichnet werden. Damit sind Sätze gemeint, die eine anerkannte Meinung zum Ausdruck bringen. Indem sie durch eine Autorität Anerkennung zugesprochen bekommen, unterscheiden sich endoxa von Sätzen die "bloß" eine Meinung (doxa) vertreten. Diese Autorität wird entweder qualitativ oder quantitativ begründet. Demnach ist ein Satz ein endoxon, wenn er entweder von vielen Leuten angenommen wird, oder von wenigen, dafür aber besonders angesehenen Leuten.
Durch ihre autoritative Legitimation gewinnen sie für Aristoteles an Interesse, weil sie in die Nähe von beweiskräftigem Wissen über eine Sache rücken. Sie haben nicht den gleichen Anspruch an Richtigkeit und Wahrheit wie ein Beweis, aber in ihren jeweiligen Gebieten können sie ähnliche Funktionen erfüllen.
Das Anliegen meiner Hausarbeit besteht darin, die Bedeutung der endoxa in der aristotelischen Philosophie zu untersuchen. Dabei setzte ich drei besondere Schwerpunkte. Zunächst werde ich auf das erste Buch der Topik eingehen und die Gründung der Dialektik auf endoxa besprechen. In diesem Buch der Topik geht Aristoteles erläuternd auf die endoxa ein, und erklärt ihren Nutzen für die dialektische Deduktion.
Der zweite Schwerpunkt ist die Anwendung der endoxa in der Ethik. G.E.L. Owen entdeckte, dass mit den in der Nikomachischen Ethik angesprochenen phainomena, in erster Linie nicht empirische Tatsachen gemeint sind, sondern die endoxa, als Ausdruck von Erkenntnis. Jonathan Barnes geht auf dieses challenge ein, und konzipiert eine aristotelische Methode der endoxa, die ich besprechen möchte.
Der dritte Schwerpunkt soll die Relevanz der endoxa, für die Auffindung der ersten Prinzipien der Wissenschaften klären. Aristoteles erwähnt diesen besonderen Nutzen nur nebenbei in der Topik und bleibt eine genauere Klärung schuldig. Unter Einbeziehung von C.D.C. Reeves Buch „Practise of reason“, werde ich versuchen diese epistemologische foundation der aristotelischen Philosophie darzustellen. Aristoteles beginnt die Topik mit der Angabe des zu erreichenden Zieles. Er will eine allgemeine Methode entwickeln, mit deren Hilfe aus endoxa Deduktionen gebildet werden können. Anhand von formalen Regeln, soll es einerseits ermöglicht werden zu jedem beliebigem challenge Deduktionen zu bilden und andererseits sollen diese Regeln vor Widersprüchen in der Argumentation bewahren.
