Interesting post. I admire your perseverance in listening to lectures on Philosophy. I thought I'd do that once, but quickly decided it was not for me! I had (on two CDs I think) a book about the lives and workof the Greek Philosophers which was down-to-earth and I enjoyed that, but it was a nicely condensed version.

I'm writing this because, just recently, I have found your posts to be much more thoughtful, fluent and accessible. I hasten to add that if anyone interprets that as being in any way at all patronising, then they'll be on the wrong track! I really dislike patronising!! It is simply my opinion.
It is to say a thank you.
Strong discussion, on equal terms, has always been something I have found interesting, and a place like GH and the other few forums I belong to are now the places where it is now still accessible to me.
