Dear Yuri
I'm listening! Can you expand on your last two posts?

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 ...

Dear Yuri,

Because you are of a philosophic nature, Bryan, you are wary of the many brush-strokes which render the picture no clearer, and thus your careful words put all us all on alert.

Dear Yuri,
I think you should always bear in mind the grandeur of the realm of the eide. It is quite challenging. True Plato is sometimes sidetracked into explanations which seem banal, such as Parme ...

Dear Yuri,

If he wasn't the author of the theory of Forms, Socrates certainly was the discoverer of the dialectical questioning technique. You get the feeling that, for him, it was the hunt that ma ...

Dear Yuri,

This is a fairly wide ranging post but there is this recurring theme about utopia and implied dystopia. I wonder if you can make distinct the difference between Socrates utopia and Plato ...

Re Same and Other:

In a very simple way the terms same and other describe the inner and outer lives of men and women. Sometimes things go smoothly, other times even the simplest things seem fraught ...

Yuri, there are no School of Economic Science guidelines here except the general one of attempting to be as fair as possible. But we all agree on that surely.

So is this a study where interprets ar ...
