Аристотель на Востоке и на Западе. Метафизика и разделение христианского мира
Книга современного американского христианского философа Дэвида Брэдшоу, декана философского факультета Университета Кентукки, представляет собой наиболее полное на сегодняшний день историко-философское исследование философского концепта «энергии» и связанных с ним понятий в контексте размышлений о природе Бога и соотношении в Нем сущности и деятельности. Начав с философии Аристотеля как отправного пункта, автор скрупулезно прослеживает эволюцию этого концепта начиная с эллинистических школ и завершая поздними неоплатониками. Основное внимание автор уделяет трансформации и специфике усвоения «энергии» христианской теологией IV-XIV вв. как на Западе (Марий Викторин, Августин, Боэций, Фома Аквинский), так и на Востоке (Каппадокийцы, Дионисий Ареопагит, Максим Исповедник, Григорий Палама), связывая с ними один из определяющих факторов не только догматических расхождений, но и исторического раскола между Западной и Восточной Церковью. Книга адресована как специалистам, так и широкому кругу читателей, интересующихся историей античной, патристической и средневековой философии и теологии.
