Dear David,
A conundrum worthy of the great Parmenides himself!

Dear Yuri,

Nice to see you back on the Forum.
Let's look at the Aristotelian question about Forms. I assume you are quite au fait regarding his general notions, and that in the case of the eide th ...

Platonic Arithmetic.

Plato makes this observation in his Parmenides (154b-d):

Thank you, Alan.
I've just got round to watching this programme. Entrancing, I'd like to see it in all the seasons. I knew a little about the Arcadian movement, which I believe stretches back to Sid ...

Yuri,
Yes, you show considerable restraint in your mail of a couple of days ago. I felt you were being on your best behaviour, but you don't need to worry about gabbling on. We all do it. The thing I ...

David, I think I may have done you a disservice. I don't think I cottoned on properly to what Caird (holder of LL.D., DCL and DLitt.) said, and therefore I apologise. It's a bad habit of mine - jumpin ...

And there, David, let's leave it. The views of Poet's are always welcome in our Republic though I'm still scratching my head about the relevance of Mr Caird (holder of LL.D., DCL and DLitt.).

David,

I don't agree with Mr Caird (holder of LL.D., DCL and DLitt.) and his assessment of Plotinus. Do you?
Pete

P.S.Thankfully you didn't include the previous 24 lectures!

P.P.S. I like ...

Dear Bryan,

Thank you for reminding me about Thales. He bought up all the olive presses, didn't he?

And thus the model of the World Soul in Timaeus turns out to be also a model for how to clean ...

Dear David,

I always read your poems - you are a poet, no doubt in my mind. Many scratch away but do not convince and its a rare enough talent. You are probably sensing a 'but' loping o'er top of y ...
