 Anthony Kenny - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sir Anthony John Patrick Kenny (born 1931) is an English philosopher whose interests lie in the philosophy of mind, scholastic and ancient philosophy, the philosophy of Wittgenstein and the philosophy of religion.
With Peter Geach, he has made a significant contribution to Analytical Thomism, a movement whose aim is to present the thought of St Thomas Aquinas in the style of modern philosophy by clearing away the trappings and obscurities of traditional Thomism.
Kenny is one of the executors of Wittgenstein's literary estate.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 04.01.15
Kenny here focuses on three issues that have loomed large in recent discussions of Aristotle's ethics: the nature of eudaimonia or happiness; its relation to friendship and fortune; and the role of intellectual pursuits.
Kenny may be right that "the EE taken with the AE makes up a more coherent whole than the NE taken with the AE." It hardly follows, of course, that the former is the definitive account.
Kenny ends this book with stirring praise for the study of Aristotle's ethics, and while I disagree with him on many points, he once again deserves thanks both for his vigorous scepticism and for his forthright discussion of such basic issues.

 R v Talbot; Kenny v R [2003] NTCCA 13
Kenny was also convicted of aggravated assault with intent to steal, contrary to s 212 of the Criminal Code, with respect to the same incident.
His Honour considered that the approach to be taken in sentencing in cases of robbery in company, further aggravated by the causing of bodily harm to the victim, was the same as that applicable to cases of armed robbery.
Accordingly, his Honour, in sentencing Kenny, ignored the actual sentence imposed on Talbot and imposed what he considered to be an appropriate sentence having regard to all the circumstances of the offence and the offender.

 Gyula Klima
Anthony Kenny's book is one of the best of its genre, exemplifying the kind of introduction into (some field of) Aquinas's thought that endeavors to make his ideas accessible to the philosophically interested contemporary reader in terms of such philosophical, scientific and everyday concepts with which the reader can safely be assumed to be familiar.
The best passages of Kenny's book from this point of view are precisely the ones in which he remarks on certain principles of Aquinas that they should be taken as "truisms"--it is a pity that these remarks do not stand together to form a consistent methodology.
But since Kenny fails to do so, his account is misleading also in the subsequent chapter, where he simply classifies Aquinas as a "soft determinist", as if the contemporary classification could be applied to Aquinas's theories without any further ado, despite the radical differences between Aquinas's and the contemporary concept of `cause'.

Kenny knew how to play the drums (he might not have been that good, but he was at least better than Billy) and even filled in on occasion when Billy took centerstage to croon some sappy ballads.
Kenny was content to keep the status quo, but knew his vote wasn't worth too much, so he kept his mouth shut and tried to referee the dispute.
Anthony has been working on an album for the past few years and recently held an all-night jam session at his studio in Ann Arbor (owned by Perigee), but little appears to be ready to result from that.

Kenny, however, leaves readers with little sense of More's personal complexity.
This flattening of More's character is disappointing but unsurprising in view of Kenny's reliance for biographical data on Roper and Harpsfield, two 16th-century sources now regarded as not completely reliable.
Kenny's final aid to students is a standard feature of Past Masters books; his short annotated bibliography cites editions of More's works, several biographies, and historical and political background studies.

 [No title]
Fifteen years ago, in The Aristotelian Ethics (Oxford, 1978), he ignited intense debate by challenging the age- old preeminence of the Nicomachean Ethics (NE) and claiming ancient authority for treating the EE as the definitive presentation of Aristotle's views.
(Not least because of the many emendations he proposes or adopts, Kenny and the publishers are to be commended for including a complete text and translation in appendices.) In this book, as in Kenny's earlier studies, the relation between the two works is more than a leitmotif.
As Kenny shows in helpful discussions of EE 8.3, that work explains "complete virtue" as "final virtue"--as virtue valued for its own sake as opposed to its consequences and external goods.

Kenny writes: "By profession I am a philosopher: and in the present century philosophers in this country have been keen to emphasize not only the difficulty of stating God's will on particular issues but the difficulty for human beings of saying anything intelligible at all about the nature of God.
In this title Kenny revisits the Five Ways of Aquinas and argues that they are not so much proofs as definitions of God.
He is also in constant dialogue with Wittgenstein for, Kenny writes, no man in recent years has surpassed him in devotion of sharp intelligence to the demarcation of the boundary between sense and nonsense.

During an SLP meeting at the Castries Market Steps last Tuesday, prime minister Dr Kenny Anthony said that with his return to active politics, John Compton could no longer expect to be treated "with the respect normally reserved for knights and statesmen.
The Voice editor reckons that the PM was "ill-advised to allow himself to use the extremes of language when the effect of that language could be the incitement of violence in St. Lucia".
The Crusader, too, felt that Dr Anthony's speech had strayed a long way from the "soulful plea for the healing of the nation" he had made just two months ago, after the attack on the Castries Cathedral.

With spectacular illustrations--including sixteen pages of full-color plates--this splendidly written volume takes the reader on a magnificent chronological tour through the revolutions of thought that have forged the Western philosophical tradition from ancient times to the present.
Throughout, the six contributors--an internationally renowned team of philosophers including Roger Scruton, Anthony Quinton, and Anthony Kenny--bring the astonishingly diverse, wide-ranging landscape of intellectual history into sharp focus, emphasizing how notions seen today as part of an inevitable march of ideas were in their own time often considered radical, if not revolutionary.
Thus we are treated, for example, to lively accounts of how Plato's "theory of forms" and Aristotle's pioneering exercises in logic broke with the past to irrevocably alter the course of Western thought.

However, the night's proceedings were anything but stiff, what with the irreverent quips by master of ceremonies Winston Bennett, Anthony Faloon, campus registrar, professor Rupert Lewis and keynote speaker, "Super Lion" Dr Kenny Anthony, prime minister of St Lucia, as they reminisced.
Describing the Hall as "cosmopolitan" and a "microcosim of Caribbean society," Dr Anthony said he was proud to be accorded the title of "Super Lion", and to have been in the company of some outstanding leaders in the region.
Commenting on the Caribbean of today, Dr Anthony told his audience that "Jamaica holds the key to our Caribbean civilisation, and that if the dynamics of the Jamaican society and culture could be understood, the future of the wider Caribbean would be better understood."
