Glyn's Recommended Print edition The Essential Squashed Philosophers from INTRODUCTION TO The Apology
The Apology is ostensibly an account of Socrates ' trial and the philosopher's defence on the charge of corrupting the young people of Athens. Actually it is an exposition of all that was best in the doctrines of Socrates , who was as misunderstood by most of his followers as by his enemies. To the bourgeoisie of Athens the master's aim was to turn his pupils into caustic critics and somewhat arrogant and self-satisfied revolutionaries. Socrates had spent himself largely in destructive criticism, but here, he attempts to put something constructive in its place by deliberately not defending himself in what might well be one of the two great judicial suicides of history. ABOUT THIS SQUASHED EDITION
This version is based on the condensed version first published by Sir John Hammerton in 1919.

42. Phil 101 Notes Plato
Almost all of what we know about plato comes from his own account of his life in one of thirteen letters ( 7) that were preserved along with his dialogues.
Almost all of what we know about Plato comes from his own account of his life in one of thirteen letters (#7) that were preserved along with his dialogues. In addition, Diogenes Laertius, in the second or third century A.D., recorded various facts of Plato's life that he had gleaned from contemporary sources which have not been otherwise preserved. Plato was born in 427 B.C. in Athens to an aristocratic family. His father, Ariston, traced his family back through several of the ancient kings of Athens to the god Poseidon. His mother, Perictione, was decended from Dropides, who was a relative and close friend of Solon. Her brother was Charmides and her cousin was Critias, both of whom were well known politicians of the day. Plato had two older brothers, Adeimantus and Glaucon, and a sister, Potone. Plato's father died while Plato was a boy and Perictione married her uncle, by whom she had a boy, Antiphon, whom Plato mentions in one of his dialogues. Plato's youth came at a terrible time in Athenian history; and he might well have been a very different person had he been born at another time, perhaps several decades earlier. In the early period of the Peloponnesian Wars, a democratic and powerful Athens had been lead onward by one of its greatest political leaders, Pericles; but by Plato's birth, Pericles had died and Athens had begun to decline. The disastrous expedition to Syracuse occured when Plato was fifteen, and the final surrender of Athens occured when he was twenty three. Sparta terminated Athenian democracy and established a ruling oligarchy, "the Thirty Tyrants," in 404. Charmides and Critias were part of this government and encouraged Plato to enter politics.

1. The Background to Plato's Metaphysics
Three predecessors heavily influenced Plato's thoughts on metaphysics and epistemology, Heraclitus (c. 540 B.C.-480-70), Parmenides (c.515 B.C.-449-40), and Socrates (470 B.C.-399). Only fragments remain of the writings of Parmenides and Heraclitus, including some contained in the dialogues of Plato. Socrates wrote nothing. Plato's depiction of his teacher is our primary source of evidence for his philosophy. Parmenides argued that there is and could be only one thing, Being . One could not even think or say what is not. Moreover, since change implies that something comes to be what it

46. Plato.
To plato society was to break down to those few who were to be the philosopher kings, and the rest of us, who were to be treated like labouring beasts of the field.

(427-348 BC) Plato was born in Athens. Coming from a noble family, he aspired to a political career, but soon became upset with the "tyrannic democracy" of Athens, especially when it put his teacher, Socrates (469-399 BC) to death. Plato "turned to philosophy in search of an alternative to the stable and unjust public life of the time. He also sought unity behind the changing impressions of the visible universe." In Athens, Plato, eventually set up a school known as the Academy. Plato believed that there was another world beyond this changeable and destructible one in which we live, one consisting of unchanging eternal Forms. He asserted that what we see and touch are only very distantly related to the ultimate realities that exist. He gives, in his work the Republic , the famous comparison of the human condition with that of prisoners chained facing the inner wall of a cave, so that all they can see are mere shadows of objects in the cave, knowing nothing of the world outside. An example of one of the ultimate realities is Euclidean geometry with its theorems concerning ideal objects that do not and cannot exist in the three dimensional world in which we live, ideal objects such as straight lines without thickness and perfect circles, and other such timeless objects. And just as there are no perfect circles in this world we can not have morally perfect men, no absolutely perfect examples of courage or justice; we can only imagine perfectly moral standards. Drawing a distinct line of demarcation between the Ideal and the actual world, defines the "dualist." Such a belief does not define a religionist, but such a philosophy lends itself to a religious interpretation that the soul, or mind, is a non-material entity which can exist apart from the body of man, and that the soul is immaterial and immortal; - divine worship soon ensues. Though Plato does not go into any definitive statements on the subject of religion

Glyn's Recommended Print edition The Essential Squashed Philosophers from INTRODUCTION TO The Republic
As a famous philosopher once said, "The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato". Alfred Whitehead may not have been exaggerating. Many of the conclusions presented in The Republic may seem, with two-and-a-half thousand years of hindsight, just silly. But its method of reaching those conclusions, by a precise process of honest and careful step-by-step searching after absolute answers, has been, and remains, the one great distinguishing feature of the European way of thinking. It underlies the impossible search for perfection which has given rise to Europe's science, politics, psychology, education and much of its angst. It stands in valorous contrast to the world's only other great founder-philosopher, Confucius , whose love of harmony and the certainties of tradition built a very different society.

HE U ... Department of Computer Science My involvement with the PLATO system covered the entire period that I was a graduate student at the University of Illinois. While I was there, I did several things. But first: Why are so many of the screen shots shown here in orange on a black background? The answer is simple: Through the 1970's, the dominant terminal used on the PLATO system was the Magnavox Plato IV student terminal. In an era when all other computer display screens used CRTs, this display used a neon-discharge plasma panel. Yes, this is exactly the same technology used in plasma flat-screen TV screens today, except without the phosphors, so there was only one color, orange.

FlyingFish HOME Articles Links Contact Dissent and Compromise Like the initiate of a secret society who has broken free from the undifferentiated collectivity, the individual on his lonely path needs a secret which for various reasons he may not or cannot reveal. Such a secret reinforces him in the isolation of his individual aims. A great many individuals cannot bear this isolation. They are the neurotics, who necessarily play hide-and-seek with others as well as with themselves, without being able to take the game really seriously. As a rule they end by surrendering their individual goal to their craving for collective conformity - a procedure which all the opinions, beliefs and ideals of their environment encourage. Moreover, no rational arguments prevail against the environment. Only a secret which the individual cannot betray - one which he fears to give away, or which he cannot formulate in words, and which therefore seems to belong to the category of crazy ideas - can prevent the otherwise inevitable retrogression. [1] Plato's Cave Many people express a desire for improvements in society; in fact, have you ever met anyone who does not? This desire would be a uniting common ground, were it not the very swamp of human conflict and struggle - and it is a reflection of the slippery nature of words, where changes which are 'improvements' according to one person are another's poison.
