Bridging the Gap: Boethius’ Consolation of Philosophy

finished this up tonight.

man, i LOVE Boethius and his Consolation of Philosophy (his Tractates ain’t too shaby, either…you can read them online with that link…read them on the Kindle earlier tonight).  forgot how much i love this stuff.  first fell for it while working on my Masters at Yale in a class on pre-Dante Christian philosophy.  what a class.

anyway, serious serious love.  i feel so excited that i rediscovered it. yeah, i’m a dork.

you can even read the whole thing on Google Books.  go do it now and then tell others to go and do likewise.  our world needs Boethius.

woah, good stuff.

so sad from Plutarch…

“The messenger you sent to report the death of our little child seems to have missed me on the way as he travelled to Athens; but when I reached Tanagra I learned of it from my granddaughter. Now the funeral, I suppose, has already been held — and my desire is that it has been so held as to cause you the least pain, both now and hereafter; but if you want something done that you are leaving undone while you await my decision, something that you believe will make your grief easier to bear, that too you shall have, so it be done without excess or superstition, faults to which you are not at all prone.”

ah, the Consolation genre (paper coming soon)…
