41. Socrates (ca. 470-399 BC) -- From Eric Weisstein's World Of Scientific Biography
He pretended a disarming ignorance (Socratic irony), then forced his listeners through shrewd questioning to admit their own ignorance.
Branch of Science Philosophers Nationality Greek
Socrates (ca. 470-399 BC)

Greek philosopher who studied under Anaxagoras . He pretended a disarming ignorance (Socratic irony), then forced his listeners through shrewd questioning to admit their own ignorance. He used a negative form of arguing in which he argued against statements, but never supported any of his own. This led to a confusion of the subject and a forced admission of ignorance. He was a moral, rather than a natural philosopher. Aristotle

42. Socrates (469-399 B.C.)
A biography of the ancient Greek philosopher socrates.
SOCRATES S OCRATES The life of Socrates is known to us from the writings of his two disciples, the soldier Xenophon and the philosopher Plato. Of the two, Xenophon is the more accurate. Plato puts his own thoughts into the mouth of Socrates, working them out by his master's method of question and answer. Xenophon's memoir is a simple statement of what he remembers Socrates to have said.

45. Socrates In The Labyrinth
socrates in the Labyrinth is a wideranging exploration of the relationships between hypertext, thought, and argument. Does hypertext present alternatives
"It is hard to overstate the significance of Kolb's hypertext....
"As an authentic piece of creative philosophical thought and as a remarkably successful use of hypertext technology, this piece should be required reading for hypertext enthusiasts and philosophers alike." Charles Ess, Drury University Read the complete review! "The most exciting piece of non-fiction hypertext that IÁve read....David Kolb shows here his mastery of the philosopherÁs main task: asking questions. " Susana Pajares Tosca, Hipertulia
Socrates in the Labyrinth is a wide-ranging exploration of the relationships between hypertext, thought, and argument. Does hypertext present alternatives to the logical structures of if-then, claim and support? Is hypertext a mere expository tool, that cannot alter the essence of discussion and proof? Or is hypertext essentially unsuited to rigorous argument? Kolb's discussion is a nuanced, creative approach to these and other questions. Kolb points up the history of nonlinearity in philosophical work, from the Socratic dialogues through Hegel, and the variety of forms that philosophical discussion can take. Kolb's discussion and the structures of Socrates itself show that hypertext is not only a "super-encyclopedia" that leaves the essence of argument unchanged. But his keen understanding of both hypertext and postmodernism also shows that the relation between hypertext and "the end of the text" is more complex than is sometimes claimed. Socrates in the Labyrinth embodies several hypertext structures showing possibilities for writing and thought in the new medium.

46. Commentary On The Apology Of Socrates
A lineby-line analysis of Plato s Apology, written by Kelley Ross.
Commentary on Plato's
Apology of Socrates
It was one of the rules which, above all others, made Doctor Franklin the most amiable of men in society, "never to contradict anybody." If he was urged to announce an opinion, he did it rather by asking questions, as if for information, or by suggesting doubts. Thomas Jefferson , letter to Thomas Jefferson Randolph (Jefferson's grandson), November 24, 1808. Unless Plato had already written some short dialogues to illustrate Socrates' technique of questioning (like the Euthyphro ), the Apology of Socrates is the earliest thing by him that we have. This would mean that it is the oldest extant document of Greek philosophy everything earlier (e.g. Parmenides ) was lost and is known only through quoted fragments in later works, like those of Plato himself. There is something fitting in this. Socrates substantially refounded philosophy, and the Apology is still, all by itself, about the best introduction to Western philosophy that there is. At the trial for his life in 399 BC, Socrates astonished his listeners by appearing, despite his vigorous defense, to deliberately get himself found guilty and condemned to death. What he had said was then a matter of some curiosity, but there were no Greek court reporters, and of course no audio or video tape, so there was no official record, or news recording, of the trial. If Socrates' words were going to be remembered, the spectators were going to have to record them. This is what happened, and various versions of the

48. Socrates
Archelogos aims at the development of methods of electronic representation of arguments and methods of electronic reasoning, using advanced artificial
search archelogos projects:
  • index

  • The purpose of the Socrates Project is to present the thoughts and arguments of Socrates, as we find them in Plato's early dialogues, in a way which brings together the various methods developed by the Archelogos team. While in Archelogos and LogAnalysis these methods are applied to particular texts, and in Elenchos to an abstract theme, in the Socrates project they will be applied to the thought of an individual philosopher.
    The central aims of the Project are twofold. First, to create a database of the major theses and arguments ascribed to Socrates, along with objections to them considered in the Socratic works, the main theses and arguments of individual dialogues, and the interpretations of Socrates' thought given by different commentators. Secondly, to develop a method of presentation which will display these theses and arguments in such a way as to reveal the relations between them in graphic form. This method of presentation will further develop the insights achieved with Archelogos and with the argument Map of Elenchos The Project will also include:
    A philosophical knowledge-base (based on Gnoseogenesis) containing principal Socratic theses, and enabling the user to derive logical consequences from them. An interactive argumentation game (based on Elenchos) allowing the user to debate Socratic theses with the computer. Essays by Socratic scholars presenting alternative interpretations of Socrates' thought. Extracts from major texts for our understanding of Socrates. A Socratic archive, modelled on the cultural archives of LogAnalysis and Gnoseogenesis, giving information about Socrates' life, the background to his thought, his influence, and different perceptions of him, and containing relevant texts and images.

    The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius:
    Selections Annotated and Explained

    Russell McNeil, PhD
    Editor, Malaspina Great Books
    In 1862 the English literary critic and poet Matthew Arnold described Marcus Aurelius as "the most beautiful figure in history." The Stoicism of Aurelius is grounded in rationality and rests solidly on an ethical approach rooted in nature. Stoicism promises real happiness and joy in this life and a serenity that can never be soured by personal misfortune. This philosophy has universal appeal with practical implications on problems ranging from climate change and terrorism to the personal management of sickness, aging, depression and addiction. I truly believe that the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius has much to offer us now...(Click on book cover for more)

    The Death of Socrates
    Socrates opposed the Sophists, arguing that there are absolute, transcultural standards of right and wrong, good and bad. He argued (as in the first passage below) that once we recognize what is truly good, we will act in accord with that knowledgehence his claim that "the virtues are a kind of knowledge." He also firmly believed (as shown in the second passage) that the cosmos is grounded in goodness, hence that a good person cannot suffer unduly and that death is not something to be feared. Plato recounts the last hours of Socrates' life in a moving dialogue. This is the end of his final speech, just after he had been condemned to death by the citizens of Athens, his home town. The method of execution was that the condemned should drink a cup of hemlock, a not uncommon mode of execution. What reasons does Socrates give for not fearing death? Why is Socrates so little concerned with how his body is to be buried? The Death of Socrates, from Plato's Phaedo When he had spoken these words, he arose and went into a chamber to bathe; Crito followed him and told us to wait. So we remained behind, talking and thinking of the subject of discourse, and also of the greatness of our sorrow; he was like a father of whom we were being bereaved, and we were about to pass the rest of our lives as orphans. When he had taken the bath his children were brought to him (he had two young sons and an elder one); and the women of his family also came, and he talked to them and gave them a few directions in the presence of Crito; then he dismissed them and returned to us.

    Political Philosophy during the US Election
    I know not many of you have seen posts or comments from me for a while, but I haven't disappeared completely. I've just been very busy teaching in London and "lurking". I hope to be back to full strength soon, but in the mean time, I was wondering about thoughts and insights people have on the following:
    I have the (good?) fortune to be able to teach an introduction to political philosophy this fall during the 2008 US elections. Normally, I teach the class as a history of pre-liberal and liberal political philosophy with reactions/challenges to liberalism and a little bit of justice near the end. In the fall, I'd like to be a little more topical and concentrate the course on democratic theory. But I'll primarily be teaching to non-majors and those without much political theory/science background. And it's not exactly my specialty in political philosophy, so I'll be learning a lot over the summer. So does anyone have ideas for more easily accessible introductory texts on democratic theory that stress its connections to political philosophy? What about fun articles that present problems with and within democratic theory? Any other experiences about what worked well when teaching political philosophy during elections?
