And now on to Plato
I finished all my required readings on the Presocratics last night – specifically, the sophists. Phew! Glad to be done with that. The worst part was wading through Gorgias’ arguments which ran to almost 4 pages of text in the Cohen, Curd, and Reeve book on Ancient Greek Philosophy with no paragraph breaks. I ended up mostly skimming that section.
It would probably be a good idea to run back through that section at a later date and map out the arguments since they are undoubtedly fallacious. It’ll be a good spur to get me back to studying my logic on a daily basis. Speaking of which, I had been slowly going through Martin Cothran’s book on Traditional Logic but was thinking I might add a little from Peter Kreeft’s Socratic Logic book?
As always so much to do.
