Philosophy for the Millions

The founder of Philosophy, Thales, is author of the Ionic sect born according to the best calculation in the first year of the 35th Olympiad 640 B.C., thought the universe was all embracing whole developed germ and that water the all powerful sustainer of life. In those times, scholars had already considered the sun, mountains, earth, sea, rivers as independent powers to be revered as gods, but Thales, thought God is water. There is even a science called Thalassography, a physical geography that treats the sea, the word Thalassocracy means mastery of the sea.

In knowledge is the eye of the mind rise to the universal light, lightens all things, and beholds absolute good, not as a heroic performer whose chief pursuit is to act, but simply as a matter of beholding the light of day.

Pythagoras was a rare philosophical genius who could predict things. When he landed in the Bay of Tarentum, at Crotona in Italy around 530 B.C on his way to town come across some fishermen who had caught none fish all day were leaving to go home. Pythagoras called upon them to draw the nets one more time and predicted the number of fish they would catch this time.

The fishermen guffawed in disbelief at his prophecy said if his prophecy were right they promised to be his followers forever and do whatever Pythagoras wanted them to do.

The prophecy came true. Pythagoras told the fishermen first in order to followers throw the fish they caught back into the sea because Pythagorean eats no flesh.

The world of knowledge is the power upon which to act rationally, either in public or private life. Socrates is considered the wisest of all people from his youth upward are courageous, temperate, holy, free, and the like. All these virtues became his second Nature like a breeze from a purer world, drawing into likeness and sympathy with reason.

When I was thirty years old, I began studying philosophy, being drawn off into another brook, directed towards things all in order moving towards purpose.

Through some inherent reason, I had my eyes opened and little by little, I learned philosophy. Reason lies in conquering. When an entire self has succeeded in canceling self to do, good in the world is reason.
Pythagoras from his youth upward was courageous, temperate, holy, free, and the like. All were second Nature. He was gifted breeze from a purer world, drawing a likeness and sympathy to reason.

Virtue is the course of spiritual life that requires giving up individuality. Reason that is deeper than self, finds expression in others. Self requires only self-certainty, whereas reason a certain awareness of one and other must be realized.

There are a gallery of noble philosophers through out history. Thales a person of rare genius was the author of the Ionic sect is the founder of philosophy according to the best calculation he was born in the first year of the 35th Olympiad 640 B.C.

Philosophy made its appearance with Thales and Pythagoras 600 B.C; the spirit of Greece had apathy and insensitiveness worked out. They were profound thinkers exalted in knowledge and truth, justice, courage, and temperance. Thales was one of the seven wise men of ancient Greek philosophy and introduced geometry to measure the pyramids and the distance from shore of ships at sea. It is believed he used calculus to estimate the sea; Water Thales thought the supreme sustainer of life.

The same as there are generations of plants there are generation of philosophers and anything that is generated for a certain time is a gift of spiritual life, a virtuous consciousness and each generation plays the role of carrying out their purpose.

What I mean is courage is a kind of salvation. Socrates gives an illustration. “You know, he said, that dyers, when they want to dye wool for making the true sea-purple, begin by selecting their white color first; this they prepare and dress with much care and pains, in order that the white ground may take the purple hue in full perfection. The dyeing then proceeds and whatever is dyed in this manner becomes a fixed color, and no washing either with lyes or without them can take away the coloration.” Courage under all circumstances is the nature of things to be feared and not to be.

This is what Socrates termed courage, as indelibly fixed by nurture and training, not to be washed away by such potent lyes by sorrow, fear, and desire, pleasure they are all mighty solvents. Courage, this sort of universal saving power of true opinion in conformity with rules about real and false situations.


The saving grace of truth is bravery. Courage is a mighty agent, under all circumstances courage preserves, is the mightiest of all solvents in mind.

But what makes a person virtuous is justice. No doubt justice is somewhere: I struggle to catch sight of it, if you see it first, let me know so that it does not creep away, pass out of sight and escape.

Justice, there is no path, little light if I go about looking for what I already have I look not at what I am seeking, but what is far off in the distance; therefore I fail to recognize justice.

Justice is fairness, evenhandedness, it is the only virtue, which remains in a society when all the other virtues, temperance and courage and wisdom, are gone, therefore, l lower ye my bucket where I stand.

My challenge here

Whatever I admit to understanding is not merely to persuade you of my writing talent, which is not always distinct but sincere, I try never to tell anything but truth, though not always exquisitely.

My knowledge is formed by a method a discipline that rises gradually little by little to the highest point reachable.

This is my challenge I aim to refute all not with opinion but truth, never stumbling at any step of the argument I define. Knowledge is the natural gift of God look at the movements of the stars and the things in heaven in the perfect manner. Little things elaborated how absurd! Those who want to see truth must take a long and winding road, Nothing short should satisfy them or lose sight of the higher truth where all things become useful and advantageous good.

Philosophy has been cultivated for many ages by the most illustrious people. Every discussion here is a demonstration of the likenesses that was said by them before. I write to permeate and preserve their truth or a likeness of which can be found. Truth is the universal author of all things beautiful and right, parent of light in the world.

What is Philosophy?

Philosophy has been cultivated for many ages by the most illustrious philosophers. Every discussion is a demonstration of the likenesses that was before. I write to permeate and preserve truth or a likeness, I mean a likeness of everything to which can be found.

There are a gallery of noble philosophers and heroes. They were willing to exalt profound thought not opinion. They exhibited an eagerness to behold the highest truth, nourished in the spirit of it. There is a generation of philosophers the same as there are generations of plants and anything that is generated from opposition. Opposite meaning things such as just and unjust, good and evil, and the innumerable, other opposites that are generated out opposite.

I am drawn to philosophy absorbed in the pleasures of it drawn off like a stream into another channel striving after the noblest pursuit of all. Not blunted by the skeptics I live on a keen edge will not abate only until I have attain truth of divine beauty, wisdom, goodness, and the like; for they nourish my mind.

Those who wander in the region of wanting in knowledge are not philosophers. Also, those who have in their mind no clear pattern are unable to look at the absolute truth and vision of the world of beauty, goodness, justice. The nature of the philosopher, they always love knowledge of a sort that shows them the everlasting and fixed, not varying from generation and corruption. They are lovers of wisdom, lovers of all true being: they will never purposely receive into their mind lies, which they loathe.
