First my apologies: I never got around to posting selections, so the last chat was poorly attended and we called it a night soon. Between sciatic pain, physical therapy, and home renovation, some things simply fell through the cracks. :(
Our next chat will be next Wednesday, March 21.
First, a note to Plutarch's Moralia online at the Liberty Fund: If you click on the individual volumes, you find various download options, including book format. There is a special download for Kindle, and people using iBooks or Nook can use the e-pub downloads. I downloaded them on iBooks, and Beverly tested them on the Nook.
My first recommendations are
- Ralph Waldo Emerson's introduction to the above "Moralia" in Volume 1.
- OF ISIS AND OSIRIS, OR OF THE ANCIENT RELIGION AND PHILOSOPHY OF EGYPT (Volume 4). This can also be read at LacusCurtius.
This will take up quite a bit of the chat time, I suppose. Between today and Saturday, I will do some extensive reading and post suggestions of some of the smaller pieces.
Recommendations are appreciated!
And let's put another session on next year's calendar.
