Socrates in Raphael’s The School of Athens with Hermocrates, Critias, and Timaeus

Author’s Note:

The following text is based on a transcript by V. S. of Part 2 of my lecture on “The Myths of Plato.” As usual, I have edited his transcript to remove excessive wordiness and corrected small mistakes.

Myth, Utopia, & Pluriversal Realism

Kris Kurski, "Imminent Utopia"

Kris Kurski, “Imminent Utopia”

905 words

Part 8 of 8

Gelassenheit

(See my review of Duchesne’s Uniqueness of Western Civilization for a discussion of how Western man is preeminently thumotic man.) Read more …
