Phaedo

    Posted by Ben Trainor, 6 years ago

    Hi all, sorry for my inactivity since creating this group, school has been pretty heavy for the last little while.

    I am currently adding the finishing touches to an essay taking on the indivisibility of the soul as presented by Socrates in Plato's Phaedo and I was wondering if anyone else has read this work.

    I am attacking the prospect of an indivisible soul by arguing that a soul is composite, made up of thoughts and experiences which actually allows for a soul to be 'destroyed' through division after death. My main problem is proving that the necessary and individual elements that make up a soul, are in fact individual.

    Any thoughts on how I could separate the concept of a 'thought' from a concept of an 'experience'? Has anyone else read the Phaedo?

    - Ben.

  • What a great book:)

  • Nietzsche's "Beyond Good and Evil"

    Okay, so I'm slowly working my way though this one, it's a hell of a read. Nietzsche is probably one of my favourite philosophers to read because of his frustrated style. He takes constant shots at Plato and Kant, which are ridiculously amusing. Currently 2/3 the way through and I'm loving every page. I'll admit, however, I'm mostly watching for ammunition to defend him against those who associate him with Nazism.
