Plato, the great philosopher of Athens, was born in 427 BCE. In early manhood an admirer of Socrates, he later founded the famous school of philosophy in the grove Academus. Much else recorded of his life is uncertain; that he left Athens for a time after Socrates' execution is probable; that later he went to Cyrene, Egypt, and Sicily is possible; that he was wealthy is likely; that he was critical of 'advanced' democracy is obvious. He lived to be 80 years old. Linguistic tests including those of computer science still try to establish the order of his extant philosophical dialogues, written in splendid prose and revealing Socrates' mind fused with Plato's thought. In Laches, Charmides, and Lysis, Socrates and others discuss separate ethical conceptions. Protagoras, Ion, and Meno discuss whether righteousness can be taught. In Gorgias, Socrates is estranged from his city's thought, and his fate is impending. The Apology (not a dialogue), Crito, Euthyphro, and the unforgettable Phaedo relate the trial and death of Socrates and propound the immortality of the soul. In the famous Symposium and Phaedrus, written when Socrates was still alive, we find the origin and meaning of love. Cratylus discusses the nature of language. The great masterpiece in ten books, the Republic, concerns righteousness (and involves education, equality of the sexes, the structure of society, and abolition of slavery). Of the six so-called dialectical dialogues Euthydemus deals with philosophy; metaphysical Parmenides is about general concepts and absolute being; Theaetetus reasons about the theory of knowledge. Of its sequels, Sophist deals with not-being; Politicus with good and bad statesmanship and governments; Philebus with what is good. The Timaeus seeks the origin of the visible universe out of abstract geometrical elements. The unfinished Critias treats of lost Atlantis. Unfinished also is Plato's last work of the twelve books of Laws (Socrates is absent from it), a critical discussion of principles of law which Plato thought the Greeks might accept. The Loeb Classical Library edition of Plato is in twelve volumes.

Heidegger and Happiness

Dwelling on Fitting and Being

Heidegger and Happiness offers an original interpretation of Heidegger's later thought, within the context of his philosophy as a whole, to develop a new conception of human happiness. The book redeems the essential content of the Greek notion of eudaimonia and transcends recent debates concerning the 'objectivity' or 'subjectivity' of happiness. The author shows that Heidegger's thinking of being is far from arcane and abstract, and is crucially important in understanding the deepest sources of human well-being. An etymological examination of the word 'happiness' frees the word from the constraints of utilitarian ways of thinking, which suggest that 'happiness' is only peripherally related to eudaimonia. King demonstrates that a sense of fittingness is essential both to 'happiness' and to eudaimonia, and shows how deep happiness, conceived as dwelling in our fitting-together with being, can serve as a 'grounding attunement' for the thinking of being.

SOME dialogues of Plato are of so various a character that their relation to the other dialogues cannot be determined with any degree of certainty. The Theaetetus, like the Parmenides, has points of similarity both with his earlier and his later writings. The perfection of style, the humour, the dramatic interest, the complexity of structure, the fertility of illustration, the shifting of the points of view, are characteristic of his best period of authorship. The vain search, the negative conclusion, the figure of the midwives, the constant profession of ignorance on the part of Socrates, also bear the stamp of the early dialogues, in which the original Socrates is not yet Platonized. Had we no other indications, we should be disposed to range the Theaetetus with the Apology and the Phaedrus, and perhaps even with the Protagoras and the Laches. Aeterna Press

Die Selbstbetrachtungen des römischen Kaisers Mark Aurel sind die letzte bedeutende Hinterlassenschaft aus der philosophischen Schule der jüngeren Stoa. Maßgebliche Richtschnur für das eigene Denken und Handeln waren ihm die Einordnung in und die Übereinstimmung mit der „Allnatur“. Vernunftleitung und Gemeinwohlorientierung gehören zu den in zahlreichen Wendungen variierten Konstanten der Selbstbetrachtungen, zu denen Mark Aurel auch die Rückwirkungen seines Amtes auf die eigene Person antrieben: „Verkaisere nicht!“

Thornton Wilders Roman ›Die Frau aus Andros‹ erzählt von einer beeindruckenden Frau in der Spätzeit der griechischen Antike Eingebunden in Hinweise auf das »Land, das bald das Heilige genannt werden sollte«, spielt dieser Roman Thornton Wilders in der Spätzeit der griechischen Antike. Chrysis, die Nichtgriechin von der Kykladeninsel Andros, hat zur Zeit um Christi Geburt auf der ägäischen Insel Brynos zum Ärger der auf Handel eingeschworenen Bewohner den alten Brauch des Hetärenmahls mit Rezitation, Musik und Diskussion über philosophische Probleme wiederaufgenommen. Von den wohlhabenden Bürgern verachtet, versammeln sie und ihre Schwester Glykerion die sozial Schwachen, aber auch, sehr zum Leid ihrer Eltern, die jungen Männer. »Mit diesem Werk erreichte Wilder einen vorläufigen Höhepunkt seiner künstlerischen Entwicklung.« Hermann Stresau

Der Gallische Krieg / Bellum Gallicum

Caesars Bericht der Unterwerfung Galliens in den Jahren 58 bis 51 v.Chr. gehört zweifellos zu den populärsten Dokumenten der Antike. Es ging ihm vor allem darum, seine oft selbstherrlichen Maßnahmen zu rechtfertigen, die Argumente seiner politischen Gegner in Rom zu entkräften und Freunden wie Feinden seine glänzenden - wenngleich oft waghalsigen - militärischen Operationen darzulegen. Die unerreichte Schlichtheit des Stils und die Klarheit der Sprache lassen dabei den propagandistischen Zweck geschickt in den Hintergrund treten. Caesars Schilderungen von Sitten und Gewohnheiten, von Eigenschaften und Leistungen der Stämme Galliens, Germaniens und Britanniens sind gleichzeitig die ältesten zusammenhängenden Berichte über diese Volksgruppen, die uns überliefert sind, und bieten noch heute eine aufregende Lektüre. Die Ausgabe von Caesars Hauptwerk in der zweisprachigen Edition von Otto Schönberger enthält neben Text und Übersetzung umfassende Erläuterungen, Einführungen, ein Register und erschöpfende Literaturhinweise.
