I am not a statue!: Aristotelian Anthropology's Inner Demons
If you have a question about this talk, please contact T.S. Thompson.
If on Jupiter, hydrocarbon beings existed, would we able to speak with them and they with us? Aristotle says that only humans can speak and the speech capability is the only criterion of humanity. Speech is also designated by Aristotle “to indicate the advantageous and the harmful, and therefore the right and the wrong … and other moral qualities.” He finishes by saying that “it is partnership in these things that makes … a polis.” Ultimately, according to Aristotle, a human being who is not in a polis is not really a human being at all. Would this human being then be no more human than a bronze or marble statue with a human being form?
