More > continued throughout the Hellenistic period and the period in which Ancient Greece was part of the Roman Empire. Philosophy was used to make sense out of the world in a non-religious way.

Perpetual Peace: A Philosophical Essay By Immanuel Kant
eBook (ePub): $1.99
Perpetual peace refers to a state of affairs where peace is permanently established over a certain area (ideally, the whole world - see world peace). Many would-be world conquerors have promised that... More > their rule would enforce perpetual peace. No empire has ever extended its authority over the entire world, and thus nothing can be said about the ability of a universal empire to ensure world peace, but several large empires have maintained relative peace in their spheres of influence over extended periods of time. A typical example is that of the Roman Empire (see Pax Romana). However their rule wasn't without serious incidents (for example: Jewish Revolt). Whether such imperial peace is actually good or desirable is another question entirely. In addition, no imperial peace has been permanent, because no empire has lasted forever.< Less

Plutarch's Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans is a series of biographies, arranged in pairs illuminating virtues & vices. As explained in the opening of his Life of Alexander, he wasn't... More > concerned with history so much as the influence of character on life & destiny. Whereas sometimes he barely touched on great events, he devoted much space to anecdote & incidental triviality, this often telling more about his subjects than their famous accomplishments. He sought to provide rounded portraits, likening his craft to painting. Indeed, he went to great length to draw parallels between physical appearance & character. He's amongst the earliest moral philosophers. Some of the Lives, like those of Heracles, Philip II of Macedon & Scipio Africanus, are lost. Many remaining Lives are truncated, contain lacunae or have been tampered with.< Less

Pseudo Dionysius recaptures for us the true essence of, Who God is, who we are, and how all things exist within Him. So often we pull God down and into what we will have Him be. We will apply... More > attributes and other factors to Him as though these are garnered from another source. When He's already explained to us WHO HE IS, when He responded: "I AM Who AM," which could easily be parleyed into "I AM WHAT YOU NEED." From the great plethora of written texts, there are two outstanding writers who must always be given due respect and recognition. In the Roman or Latin West its Augustine, and in the Greek East, it is Pseudo Dionysius. To appreciate and grasp the benefits, of what remains, of the Dionysian Corpus, it must be understood from his perspective, time, and place.
