Many of you know I am (still!) trying to finish up my degree by taking one class per term at PSU. As part of my "Greek Civilization" upper-division requirement, I am taking a class on the "History of Ancient Philosophy: Thales through Aristotle." Fascinating stuff, as always. I love this quote from some recent reading of Heraclitus:
"Therefore it is necessary to follow the common [way]; but although the Logos is common, the many live as though they have a private understanding."
