Life Of Alexander The Great #09 – Peter Adamson on Aristotle

If you’re not already one of the many fans of Peter Adamson’s “History Of Philosophy Without Any Gaps” podcast, you will be by the end of this episode. Peter does to philosophy what we do to history – he provides a blow-by-blow account of the ideas, lives and historical context of the major philosophers as well as the lesser-known figures of the tradition.

Peter is a Professor of Philosophy at the LMU in Munich and was previously at King’s College London.

We invited him onto the show to discuss philosophy in the days of Philip and Alexander, with a special focus on Aristotle.

Life Of Alexander The Great #01 – The Saga Begins.

The saga begins!

We kick off the new series talking about why Alexander The Great is worth discussing – cavalry commander at 16, king at 20, conqueror of Persia at 26, conquered two-thirds of the known world by the time of his death at 32, bore the shield of Achilles, never lost a battle, the Gordian Knot – and he had AWESOME HAIR. We also discuss his motivations – was he just a despotic conqueror or did he have a vision, inspired by Aristotle, to unite the world and stop the incessant warfare?

Then we talk about the sources for Alexander’s life – what do we know and how do we know it? What evidence is there for the stories about his life? We discuss the primary, secondary, tertiary, and oriental sources.

If you want to listen to the rest of the series – weekly episodes for the next couple of years – you’ll need to become a member of Alexander’s Army.
