Are you criticizing Plutarch's logic?
No, I was criticizing the writing - or, more properly, the translation. It was difficult to muddle through, and I was in a hurry, so I'm sure I must
have missed something.
Admittedly, you know nothing of this philosophical viewpoint, yet you mock him in the same vein as any old ATS poster that you either disagree with,
or fail to understand?
Absolutlely, if that's the way you see it. I didn't consider myself "mocking" of anyone - had that been my intent, I could have done a much better job
of it. I've never met the man who could overawe me, but then I've never met Plutarch at all.
Yes, very! It's one of my more endearing qualities. I hold NO man my superior, and but damned few, if any, my inferior. I just don't think in those
hierarchical terms. It often comes across as "arrogance", and so I own it - lock, stock, and barrel. It's gotten me in trouble on jobs before - those
cats sure do adore their "position", and often take umbrage when I don't. Make's 'em even madder when they realize I don't care about their umbrage -
and oddly enough, I don't care about that, either.
Oddly enough, it has, upon occasion, gotten me promoted as well.
As for the rest of your post, I'll re-read the Plutarch quote now that I have more time to ponder it, and see if I get out of it what you did.
