Pierre leads the Noetic Society Parmenides study group through another session. Today we read Book 10, Sections 614-621
Brief Notes From Barbara:
We worked on the Myth of Er. The opening quote on the Charts was: Learning is 1. to discover the new and understand it. 2) to recover from an error (or ignorance) remove the effect and go on to gain what was left unknown.
Some of the quotes we focused on in this order--all are in the Republic, two versions being used--are p. 529 in the Prometheus Trust Republic, also 618a in the Balboa translation of the Republic, Book 4-the definition of Justice near the end of the book in the Prometheus Trust, 614A and 621C again in the Balboa.
