MIND AND WORLD IN ANAXAGORAS' PHILOSOPHICAL THOUGHT

By ΑΝΝΑ-ΧΛΟΗ ΑΡΑΒΑΝΤΙΝΟΥ-ΜΠΟΥΡΛΟΓΙΑΝΝΗ

Abstract

IN THIS STUDY THE ATTEMPT IS MADE TO SHOW THE TRUE IMPORTANCE OF MIND IN ANAXAGORAS' PHILOSOPHICAL SYSTEM. THIS IS ACHIEVED FIRSTLY BY MEANS OF ANALYSIS OF THOSE FRAGMENTS IN WHICH THE NATURAL BECOMING IS DESCRIBED FROM THE PRE-COSMIC UNTIL ITS COSMIC SITUATION. IN THESE FRAGMENTS IT IS MADE CLEAR THAT THE MIND DOES NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE PROCESSES OF THIS NATURAL BECOMING WHICH OBEY TOAN AUSTERE NECESSITY. ON THE CONTRARY, THE MIND, IN FRAGMENT 12 IS DESCRIBED TO MAKE EVERYTHING AS FAR AS THESE PROCESSES ARE CONCERNED. OUR SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM IS THAT THE MIND, IN REALITY, IS MERELY THE ANOTHER "VIEW" OF PHYSIS-CONCEIVED AS WORLD.
