Therefore, Book Lambda is a book that has been regarded as valuable and has been studied extensively. Arabic translations of this book were in high demand in the Islamic world. We have also considered Arabic metaphysical translations, especially the translation of Book Lambda. The translation you will read is a commentary of the ninth chapter of Book Lambda by Themistius. The Greek original commentary of Lambda was lost, and after the Arabic translation, it was transferred to Latin and Hebrew. However, later parts of the Arabic text were also lost. In this chapter, Themistius comments on the part in which Aristotle discusses the difficulties on the nature of divine intellect and tries to prove that the object of reason, the act of thinking and the object of thinking are the same things.</p> Themistius of Paphlagonia; Ilyas Altuner ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://entelekya.org/index.php/review/article/view/29 Thu, 28 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Der Wille bei Augustinus http://entelekya.org/index.php/review/article/view/31 <p>Where does evil come from and how can it be reconciled with God's omnipotence? For Augustine, it is the human will from which evil results. According to his teaching, however, the will is only free to sin. And without the grace of God no one can avoid sinning, said Augustine. According to Augustine, by virtue of reasonableness one can only strive for the good. He will still need the grace of God to decide for the good. Furthermore, Augustine thought that, if God gives his grace to a person, it is impossible for him to reject it or to act contrary to it. These Augustinian doctrines certainly have an important status in Christian theology. At the same time, they set the course for the philosophical framework of debate over free will, which has continued since the days of Augustine. This contribution outlines the specific Augustinian perspective in the mentioned debate.</p> Mehmet Arslan ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://entelekya.org/index.php/review/article/view/31 Wed, 20 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 Cartesian Subject and Irrationality http://entelekya.org/index.php/review/article/view/33 <p>Determines the modern subject ontology, which manifests itself through cartesian design, through a negative distinction. Accordingly, in the soul-body dichotomy, the body is seen as a mere diffusion and has a secondary status, while the soul is identified with the mind. In this respect, the modern subject distinguishes itself from the mind, which it accepts as unchanging, unrestrained and universal in nature. The desire to establish a subject that is complete, complete and can dominate all existing ones becomes evident in such an understanding. With the Cartesian design, the whole of the ontic world is reduced to the designs of the subject; the world of knowledge overrides the world of the existing. In this respect, the first distinction made on the ontological plane for the Cartesian subject, which does not have the possibility of existence without the act of boundary and successive exclusion that reveals the dualities, emerges through reason and irrationality.&nbsp;Because while the existence of the soul is considered as mind; "I" exists only through the act of thinking. The main argument of our study is that “modernity identifies irrationality with being non-human and deems as an ontological problem by reducing human beings to mind”.</p> Yahya İncetahtacı ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://entelekya.org/index.php/review/article/view/33 Sun, 24 Nov 2019 00:00:00 +0000 The Morality of Freedom by J.
