Alongside his picture of ideal virtue, Aristotle offers a realistic account on which people can develop virtue to varying extents and in different domains.
In each work, Socrates as the quintessential philosopher is in two ways center stage, first, as a lover of wisdom sophia and discussion logos , and, second, as himself an inverter or disturber of erotic norms.

It has to be specificallyargued that there could not be circumstances in whichthe role of reasonable judge was the prerogative of a single individual someone who had shown himself to have normal reactions in the checkablecases.

Students often find philosophy a difficult and abstract subject, which, given the scope and nature of philosophical reflection, is not surprising. However, this course illustrates how every person can be a philosopher in a general sense, thinking carefully and rigorously on fundamental questions of human experience. Grades for the course will be computed on the basis of contributions to the Course Discussion Board at least FOUR posts each week, two for each unit of the course , participation in weekly Virtual Chat or Chat Follow-up , three short Free Reading Reports, and either a short essay or a final exam or, at your option, both the essay and the exam. Students considering taking an Internet course should be aware of the special demands imposed by a course of this kind. Since there is no scheduled time for the class to meet apart from the weekly virtual chat sessions , students must have sufficient self-discipline and organization to keep up with the course throughout the term. This is especially true given the compressed 6-week schedule of summer sessions. Even though the class never gathers in a physical classroom, it is important that enrolled students be available and participating in the class for the full 6 weeks of the Summer Session.

BOOK REVIEWS Whether this book heeds the directive force--the operational meaning for its readers--of statements such as the above, and the degree to which in their reference to the Republic they are accurate or not, must be left for its readers to decide. Whether it does or not, what can be said in conclusion about this book is that it does not give the kind of help that one expects from commentaries or interpretations of ancient works. Nor does it facilitate a grasp of Plato's monumental work-as-a-whole; it doesn't identify key passages or pivotal transitions. It passes over the changes of tone in Socrates' discourse; it adduces only the commentator's views of the Republic and no others, without stating why this commentator's interpretation is better than others. And, in not making explicit either its own assumptions or what the author calls the Republic's method of "eidetic analysis," the book does not make clear what the relation between the two is. More specifically, no track is kept of the sometimes crucial distinctions between, and relations among, "the dialogic city," "the good city," "the best city," "the city in speech," "the best regime," "the true city," "the perfect city," "the city of fevered heat.
This book fully explores for the first time an idea common to Plato and Aristotle, which unites their treatments—otherwise very different—of love and friendship. The idea is that although persons are separate, their lives need not be. One person's life may overflow into another's, and as such, helping another person is a way of serving oneself. The book shows how their view of love and friendship, within not only personal relationships, but also the household and even the city-state, promises to resolve the old dichotomy between egoism and altruism. Keywords: Plato , Aristotle , love , friendship , personal relationships , household , city-state , egoism , altruism.
This article examines the nature of love and some of the ethical and political ramifications. Yet it is undeniable that love plays an enormous and unavoidable role in our several cultures; we find it discussed in song, film, and novels—humorously or seriously; it is a constant theme of maturing life and a vibrant theme for youth. Philosophically, the nature of love has, since the time of the Ancient Greeks, been a mainstay in philosophy, producing theories that range from the materialistic conception of love as purely a physical phenomenon—an animalistic or genetic urge that dictates our behavior—to theories of love as an intensely spiritual affair that in its highest permits us to touch divinity. The philosophical treatment of love transcends a variety of sub-disciplines including epistemology , metaphysics, religion, human nature, politics and ethics.
