    With regard to the new directions in the Humanities, here I am going to consider and examine the approach of al-Farabi as a medieval thinker in introducing a new outlook to “language” in difference with the other views.

Aristotle believes in plurality of methods and accordingly ethics as a discipline of knowledge should have its own subject, end and method.

    Journal of Ancient Philosophy 13 (1): 181-190. 2019.
    Phone is a topic that is not so much explored and examined in Plato.
