Dear Ivano,
I welcome you to the forum on behalf of its contributors and many readers. Most Plato admirers and it sounds like you are one, have a copy of Republic to hand. If not, the Penguin edition ...

Yes, sergeant, but wouldn’t you say that even what you say is curious in its lack of curi ...

Before plunging on with my 'nightmare' I'd like to respond to what you say here:

Yes David, I'm still here. Wasn't well for a while, but I'm alright now. Tomorrow i will attempt to finish off what I started if you want. Probably do it any way as it should only take up a single po ...

I certainly want to take into account the things you say, except I am being as cautious as I possibly can and am very wary of welcoming Aristotle into our argument. You see, in my clouded vision I fee ...

Well, to me, it is clear that the ‘two’ placed upon the same base as the eight and ten is 'two in itself'. As such it cannot be the difference between eight and ten. In Socrates own reckoning, it ...

Before we move on, regarding your query, can I ask you if you see, think or feel that there is anything different in the status of the 'two' which stands between eight and ten, in my diagram, and the ...
