The «greeks» (Delta, Gamma, Theta, Vega, Rho) are tools to measure minute changes in an option's price based on corresponding changes in: Interest rates Time to expiration Price changes in the underlying security Volatility Dividends Using the greeks can lead to more accurate pricing information that will alert an option trader to mispriced derivatives that can be exploited for profit. In straightforward language and making use of charts and examples, Passarelli explains how to use the greeks to be a better options trader.

Clement of Alexandria The Stromata or Miscellanies

927 руб.
Various accounts have been given of the meaning of the distinctive word in the title; but all agree in regarding it as indicating the miscellaneous character of its contents. And they are very miscellaneous. They consist of the speculations of Greek philosophers, of heretics, and of those who cultivated the true Christian gnosis, and of quotations from sacred Scripture. The latter he affirms to be the source from which the higher Christian knowledge is to be drawn; as it was that from which the germs of truth in Plato and the Hellenic philosophy were derived. He describes philosophy as a divinely ordered preparation of the Greeks for faith in Christ, as the law was for the Hebrews; and shows the necessity and value of literature and philosophic culture for the attainment of true Christian knowledge, in opposition to the numerous body among Christians who regarded learning as useless and dangerous. He proclaims himself an eclectic, believing in the existence of fragments of truth in all systems, which may be separated from error; but declaring that the truth can be found in unity and completeness only in Christ, as it was from Him that all its scattered germs originally proceeded. The Stromata are written carelessly, and even confusedly; but the work is one of prodigious learning, and supplies materials of the greatest value for understanding the various conflicting systems which Christianity had to combat.

Life and Action: Elementary Structures of Practice and Practical Thought

2276 руб.
Any sound practical philosophy must be clear on practical concepts - concepts, in particular, of life, action, and practice. This clarity is Michael Thompson's aim in his ambitious work. In Thompson's view, failure to comprehend the structures of thought and judgment expressed in these concepts has disfigured modern moral philosophy, rendering it incapable of addressing the larger questions that should be its focus. In three investigations, Thompson considers life, action, and practice successively, attempting to exhibit these interrelated concepts as pure categories of thought, and to show how a proper exposition of them must be Aristotelian in character. He contends that the pure character of these categories, and the Aristotelian forms of reflection necessary to grasp them, are systematically obscured by modern theoretical philosophy, which thus blocks the way to the renewal of practical philosophy. His work recovers the possibility, within the tradition of analytic philosophy, of hazarding powerful generalities, and of focusing on the larger issues - like "life" - that have the power to revive philosophy. As an attempt to relocate crucial concepts from moral philosophy and the theory of action into what might be called the metaphysics of life, this original work promises to reconfigure a whole sector of philosophy. It is a work that any student of contemporary philosophy must grapple with.

Donald Phillip Verene The Philosophy of Literature

1839 руб.
The Philosophy of Literature: Four Studies puts forth the question of the extent to which philosophers must go to school with the poets. It begins with a new interpretation of the famous Platonic quarrel with the poetic wisdom of Homer. It brings this question forward through the humanism of thinkers of the Italian Renaissance and the German Idealism of Hegel. It then treats the relation of philosophy and literature in four ways by considering philosophy as literature, philosophy of literature, philosophy in literature, and philosophy and literature. In regard to the first of these, it discusses Jorge Luis Borges's The Immortal, to the second James Joyce's Finnegans Wake, to the third Carl Sandburg's epic prose poem The People, Yes, and to the fourth, Sebastian Brant's Ship of Fools. This work demonstrates that in an area of thought often dominated by fashionable doctrines of literary interpretation, the great works of literature and philosophy remain as permanent residents of our thought and imagination.""This little book conveys fresh, major insights about the possible relations between literature and philosophy--between real things and ideas--and the common medium we use to express and explore them both, language. Verene beautifully exemplifies these multiple relations by examining four specific literary works (Borges, Joyce, Sandburg, Brant) through a sophisticated but accessible philosophical lens. A lucid, foundational treatment that will enlight...

Justin Martyr The Writings of Justin Martyr

Justin Martyr was one of the Fathers of the Church, born in Sichem, Samaria. He was converted to Christianity, studied Stoic and Platonic philosophy, and founded a school of Christian philosophy at Rome, where he wrote two Apologies on Christian belief (150-60). He is said to have been martyred at Rome. Curiosity is baffled, but faith and love are fed by these scanty relics of primitive antiquity. Yet may we well be grateful for what we have. These writings come down to us as the earliest response of converted nations to the testimony of Jesus. They are primary evidences of the canon and the credibility of the New Testament. -from the Introductory Notice

Benson Mates (1919-2009) received his B.A. at the University of Oregon in 1941. His graduate study at Cornell University was interrupted by the Second World War, and he completed his Ph.D. studies at the University of California, Berkeley in 1948. Quoting the obituary written by BarryStroud and Hans Sluga, Mates "made lasting contributions to philosophy, the history of philosophy, the history of logic, and the understanding of antiquity. His work was of the highest order: clear, precise, illuminating, thoroughly reliable, and always at the highest level of logical and philological expertise."His Stoic Logic, based on his Ph.D. thesis, first published in 1953 and then reprinted in 1973 with a new preface, "was one of the first works to open the way for serious study and proper appreciation of the Stoics as philosophers and logicians. Greater sophistication in mathematical logic made it possible for Benson to demonstrate clearly for the first time the intricate ways in which the logical ideas of the Stoics were well in advance of those of Aristotle and in many respects closer to our own. The book remains a landmark in both fields."The Advanced Reasoning Forum is pleased to make available this exact reproduction of the 1973 text in its Classic Reprints series.

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2010 in the subject Art - Miscellaneous, University of Venice, language: Italian, abstract: The Russian art items presented here came to light in 2007, at the Milano Antiquity Fair and successively in Stockholm, after their acquisition from a greater private collection by M. Bortolotto, a Venetian antiquity dealer. In that occasion appeared the first version of this catalogue, to which also the results of a more broader research on Russian Silver art, partially published in Weltkunst 2002/3, are joined now. The typological diversity and the undiscussed authenticity of the collection enriches with new precious examples our cognisance on a period in the history of Russian art whose products are between the most widespread in the world but, properly for their dispersion, yet insufficiently documented and studied. Many anonym items of important artistic value - testimonies of less known technical elaborations from the end of 19th - beginning of the 20th centuries are still available on the international antiquity market. Their complex make is not easy to interpret. The realisation of a project in the previewed materials usually ran in collaboration under different experts, sometimes even in different cities.In Russia, the documentation and analysis of the 19th- 20th centuries national artistic production are really in an advanced state, however yet far of being completed. Local as foreign collections continuously bring to light new sur...

Applied philosophy has been a growing area of research for the last 40 years. Until now, however, almost all of this research has been centered around the field of ethics. A Companion to Applied Philosophy breaks new ground, demonstrating that all areasof philosophy, including epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of science, and philosophy of mind, can be applied, and are relevant to questions of everyday life. This perennial topic in philosophy provides an overview of these various applied philosophy developments, highlighting similarities and differences between various areas of applied philosophy, and examining the very nature of this topic. It is an area to which many of the towering figures in the history of philosophy have contributed, and this timely Companion demonstrates how various historical contributions are actually contributions within applied philosophy, even if they are not traditionally seen as such. The Companion contains 42 essays covering major areas of philosophy; the articles themselves are all original contributions to the literature and represent the state of the art on this topic, as well as offering a map to the current debates.

The academic schools of Chinese philosophy in pre-Qin period used to be studied in parallel. This method is advantageous for comparison and understanding of each school. But it cannot give insights to the shared background and intertwined sometimes supportive developments between the schools. In fact, the academic schools formed a structure and worked as a whole set of thinking tools, which reacted to all aspects of social issues and challenges in the long Chinese history. This is the reason that all Chinese philosophical thoughts on society and nature developed in later period can be more or less traced back to these schools and their original thoughts. This book brought forward a systematic explanation of Chinese philosophy and revealed the structure of Chinese philosophy.

Philosophy for busy people. Read a succinct account of the philosophy of Dewey in just one hour.In early twentieth-century America John Dewey was regarded as the foremost philosopher of his age – no mean feat when his colleagues included the likes of Russell, Wittgenstein and Heidegger. Dewey produced a distinctly American philosophy, essentially different from that of his European contemporaries – his pragmatic theory of ‘instrumentalism’ or ‘experimentalism’, relying on modern experimental methods to prove truth and reality. Dewey saw the ultimate reality as being nothing more or less than that which we encounter in everyday life – there is no mystery hidden within.Here is a concise, expert account of Dewey’s life and philosophical ideas, entertainingly written and easy to understand. Also included are selections from Dewey’s work, suggested further reading and chronologies that place Dewey in the context of the broader scheme of philosophy.

This 2018 second edition of Volume 2 from the four-volume slip-case set William Shakespeare’s Sonnet Philosophy (2005) is the first of the four volumes to be made available on digital platforms worldwide. The other three volumes will follow over the next couple of years. Volume 1 shows how Shakespeare structured his nature-based philosophy into the 1609 Sonnets. Volume 2 examines each of the 154 sonnets line by line to show that the Sonnet philosophy is the basis for their meaning. Volume 3 analyses a selection of poems and plays to show that they can be understood only from the vantage of the Sonnet philosophy. Volume 4 features an essay on the shared logic of Marcel Duchamp and Shakespeare plus ten other essays. Volume 2 takes the nature-based philosophy of the whole set of 154 sonnets in Shake-speares Sonnets of 1609 with its deeply structured sequences to show that every line and word of each sonnet conforms to its inherent logic. Hence, Volume 2 confirms that the philosophy Shakespeare develops early in his career as a playwright and poet is evident in every aspect of the 154 sonnets. The line-by-line analysis of the 154 sonnets using their inherent philosophy provides the first ever appreciation of reason Shakespeare wrote sonnets in the 1590s or modified earlier ones in the 1600s to express the various elements of natural logic by 1609. The increase sonnets, the increase to poetry sonnets, the truth and beauty sonnets to the Master Mistress and the beauty and truth son...

What is linguistic meaning? What do people precisely do in uttering sentences? What are the principles involved in linguistic interpretation? How is it possible that linguistic signs, such as oral sounds or squiggles on a piece of paper, refer to things in the world? This book presents the attempts by philosophers in the 20th century to understand the workings of language, and address questions such as these.Presenting an accessible, balanced introduction to the philosophy of language as it has evolved in analytical philosophy during the 20th century, this textbooks offers equal attention to both of the main divisions within the field of philosophical semantics -truth-conditional theory and speech act theory - and shows how these theoretical approaches may be construed as complementary abstractions from a prior, undifferentiated understanding of meaning as defined by use. Meaning, Use and Truth offers students of philosophy of language, and those in related fields such as logic and linguistics, a comprehensive introduction to the field, and explores why philosophy of language in the 20th century could be viewed as providing the key to the solution if the classical problems of philosophy. Finn Collin is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark. Finn Guldmann is External Lecturer at the University of Copenhagen and at Roskilde University, Denmark.

A unique, in-depth guide to options pricing and valuing their greeks, along with a four dimensional approach towards the impact of changing market circumstances on options How to Calculate Options Prices and Their Greeks is the only book of its kind, showing you how to value options and the greeks according to the Black Scholes model but also how to do this without consulting a model. You'll build a solid understanding of options and hedging strategies as you explore the concepts of probability, volatility, and put call parity, then move into more advanced topics in combination with a four-dimensional approach of the change of the P&L of an option portfolio in relation to strike, underlying, volatility, and time to maturity. This informative guide fully explains the distribution of first and second order Greeks along the whole range wherein an option has optionality, and delves into trading strategies, including spreads, straddles, strangles, butterflies, kurtosis, vega-convexity , and more. Charts and tables illustrate how specific positions in a Greek evolve in relation to its parameters, and digital ancillaries allow you to see 3D representations using your own parameters and volumes. The Black and Scholes model is the most widely used option model, appreciated for its simplicity and ability to generate a fair value for options pricing in all kinds of markets. This book shows you the ins and outs of the model, giving you the practical understanding you need for setting up and managing an option strategy. • Understand the Greeks, and how they make or break a strategy • See how the Greeks change with time, volatility, and underlying • Explore various trading strategies • Implement options positions, and more Representations of option payoffs are too often based on a simple two-dimensional approach consisting of P&L versus underlying at expiry. This is misleading, as the Greeks can make a world of difference over the lifetime of a strategy. How to Calculate Options Prices and Their Greeks is a comprehensive, in-depth guide to a thorough and more effective understanding of options, their Greeks, and (hedging) option strategies.
