Eros, Wisdom, and Silence: Plato's Erotic Dialogues

Eros, Wisdom, and Silence: Plato's Erotic Dialogues (ERIC VOEGELIN INST SERIES) by James M. Rhodes
English | May 12, 2003 | ISBN: 0826214592 | 590 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Eros, Wisdom, and Silence is a close reading of Plato’s Seventh Letter and his dialogues Symposium and Phaedrus, with significant attention also given to Alcibiades I. A book about love, James Rhodes’s work was conceived as a conversation and meant to be read side by side with Plato’s works and those of his worthy interlocutors. It invites lovers to participate in conversations that move their souls to love, and it also invites the reader to take part in the author’s dialogues with Plato and his commentators.

The belief in the immortality of the soul has been described as one of the twin pillars of Platonism and is famously defended by Socrates in Platos Phaedo. The ancient commentaries on the dialogue by Olympiodorus and Damascius offer a unique perspective on the reception of this belief in the Platonic tradition.

Publisher: Springer | 2008 | 807 pages | ISBN: 0387772316 | PDF | 14,7 mb

The synapse is a fascinating structure for many reasons. Biologically, it is an exquisitely
organized subcellular compartment that has a remarkable capacity for fidelity and endurance. Computationally, synapses play a central role in signal transmission and processing that represent evolution’s solution to learning and memory. Nervous systems, including our own brains, possess an extraordinary capacity for adaptation and memory because the synapse, not the neuron, constitutes the basic unit for information storage.
This book grew out of a symposium and a research seminar at the University of Iowa that were sponsored, in large part, by the generous support of the Obermann Center for Advanced Studies. Obermann Seminars are specifically designed to gather international scholars and produce interdisciplinary research publications.
