The history of science in the West can be traced back almost 2500 years, to a time when science, religion, and the arts all fell under a single discipline, the area of study known as Natural... More > Philosophy, or Philosophia Naturalis. While many of the tools used by modern science can be traced back to the Platonic and Neoplatonic schools of thought, the current scientific world view is more closely aligned with an altogether different school of thinking. Philosophers such as Democritus posited that the objects found within the physical world were actually composed of small, discrete parts. Few people stop to consider that this perspective is in direct contradiction to the principles espoused by Pythagoras and Plato. This book provides a modern interpretation for the Platonic model of the Universe by making use of both dialogue and diagrams — the same techniques employed by Plato and Euclid more than 2000 years ago to explain their ideas.< Less

This work is a contribution to meta-politics or the theoretical elaboration of political positions. It involves a Platonic dialogue between two voices - one Christian and the other Pagan - over a... More > range of contemporary issues. Modelled on Plato's Republic, it attempts to achieve a resolution or dialectical power-play between Thrasymachus and Socrates' more effete companions. Our two collaborators or Dramatis Personae (Frederick and Thomas) are illiberal and 'politically incorrect' in tone. This was irrespective of whether they were debating 'political correctness', the madness or delusions of crowds (a la Gustav le Bon), the ethics of conspiracy or revisionism, or the origins of Turner Prize art in Duchamp and Dadaism. Thomas, of course, happens to be a short-hand for St. Thomas Aquinas; whereas Frederick hints at an implicit rivalry with the German thinker Friedrich Nietzsche.

Archie, A. (2010), Socratic Questioning and Analagous Relations, Philosophical Frontiers, 5, 1, 3-19. By Andre Archie
eBook (PDF): $7.70
Modern Socratic questioning is motivated by two types of problems: well-structured problems and ill-structured problems. Well- structured problems are problems whose structure can be defined; an ill-... More > structured problem is a problem whose structure lacks definition. I argue that the principle question of a Platonic dialogue often has as its subject matter ill-structured problems (ISPs) and the operative questions of a dialogue, small bore questions that contribute to the elaboration of a concept’s extension, have as their subject matter well-structured problems (WSPs). I show that the dialogues often conflate WSPs with ISPs at the level of operative questioning and that conflating the two problems is intentional and justifiable.< Less
