2 Peter 2.19

(19) And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the Morningstar rises in your hearts; (20) knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation. (21) for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.

First time I've had this version of the Bible in years; I'm going to start reading through the essays/etc. tonight. I glanced over the article on canon formation in particular, and it seemed more balanced than 95% of books/essays I've read, so I am looking forward to getting into these.

"A Walk Along the Ganges" by Dennison Berwick (Kindle edition). Englishman Dennison Berwick made a 7-month pilgrimage along the Ganges River in India by foot, to learn more about Indian culture and religion.

I stumbled across it while looking for books about Hinduism (which I'm trying to learn about) which weren't dry and scholarly. So far it's really enjoyable - I love "road books"! Cool

http://www.amazon.com/Walk-Along-The-Ganges-ebook/dp/B0032FPSJI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1375901316&sr=8-2&keywords=a+walk+along+the+ganges

What are some of the general problems you and Aelius Aristides find with Gorgias?

Rhetoric is not ignoble, nor always flattery. It can be a constructive force and a good orator has to be a very educated man, since a demagogue isn't really an orator. Rhetoric really is an art and does require a lot of knowledge, contrary to what Plato thinks. On top of that the Gorgias is hypocritic. Cicero sums it up quite nicely in his De Oratore.

"There were many other famous men besides, highly distinguished in philosophy, by all of whom, with one voice as it were, I observed that the orator was repelled from the government of states, excluded from all learning and knowledge of great affairs, and degraded and thrust down into the courts of justice and petty assemblies, as into a workshop. But I neither assented to those men, nor to the originator of these disputations, and by far the most eloquent of them all, the eminently grave and oratorical Plato; whose Gorgias I then diligently read over at Athens with Charmadas; from which book I conceived the highest admiration of Plato, as he seemed to me to prove himself an eminent orator, even in ridiculing orators.

[...]

For if any one pronounces him to be an orator who can speak fluently only on law in general, or on judicial questions, or before the people, or in the senate, he must yet necessarily grant and allow him a variety of talents; for he cannot treat even of these matters with sufficient skill and accuracy without great attention to all public affairs, nor without a knowledge of laws, customs, and equity, nor without understanding the nature and manners of mankind; and to him who knows these things, without which no one can maintain even the most minute points in judicial pleadings, how much is wanting of the knowledge even of the most important affairs? But if you allow nothing to belong to the orator but to speak aptly, ornately, and copiously, how can he even attain these qualities without that knowledge which you do not allow him? for there can be no true merit in speaking, unless what is said is thoroughly understood by him who says it"


My impression was that Plato did not categorically condemn rhetoric.

Well, this seems pretty damning:

Quote
"Socrates: In my opinion then, Gorgias, the whole of which rhetoric is a part is not an art at all, but the habit of a bold and ready wit, which knows how to manage mankind: this habit I sum up under the word "flattery"; and it appears to me to have many other parts, one of which is cookery, which may seem to be an art, but, as I maintain, is only an experience or routine and not an art: another part is rhetoric [...]"

Polus: I will ask and do you answer? What part of flattery is rhetoric?

Socrates: Will you understand my answer? Rhetoric, according to my view, is the ghost or counterfeit of a part of politics.

Polus: And noble or ignoble?

Socrates: Ignoble, I should say, if I am compelled to answer, for I call what is bad ignoble

I read a book a year or two ago that explored this idea (seriously). Why do we do things to fish and the like that we would never do to cats, for example? I don't think I read the whole book (as is normal for me, it's not that the book itself was that bad), but it's interesting how that works...

Does your book advocate vegetarianism? A lot of people are vegetarians not only for health reasons, but also for religious reasons since they are concerned about harming animals. Most people, as they are eating a hamburger, don't think about the horrible pain and suffering inflicted on an animal in the slaughterhouse.

The Hope of the early Church : a Handbook of Patristic Eschatology / Brian E. Daley.  A recent thread about the "lake of fire" got me wondering what the Church Fathers had to say about it.  This book covers not just the "lake of fire," but is a good survey of what the Fathers thought about Eschatology from the beginning of the Church to Gregory the Great and John of Damascus.

Always loved Hemmingway. Couldn't disagree more with his worldview, but I love the way he expressed it. The Old Man and the Sea is wonderful, and I find a lot of unintentional Orthodox allegory in it.

Men on Strike (Why men are boycotting marriage) by Helen Smith attempts to answer the question as to why more couples are cohabitating and why in the USA there are fewer marriages than before.  According to the author, unmarried women are thinner than married women, unmarried cohabiting women have lower expectations of their partner, unmarried men can separate a lot easier from their partner than their married counterparts, and property settlement,  child custody and divorce laws are rigged against husbands.

Well, I've been collecting the works of the classical writers for years now. Besides, in two weeks I'll be a Classics undergraduate. I'm trying to read Against Timarchus, the two orations On the False Embassy, Against Ctesiphon and On the Crown within a week.

I've almost finished reading the Spirit of Eastern Christendom by Jaroslav Pelikan and then I think I'll read Iraneaus's  "on apostolic preaching."

But in regaurds to the first book, I'm going to have to reread that section cause man the words involved go over your head sometimes.
