basely wretched For he will never engage in hateful and base actions We think that the really good and reasonable person will bear his luck with dignity and always do theinest thing possible given the circumstances just as the good general will make the most warlike use of the army he has and the good shoemaker will make the best shoe he can out of the hide he is given and so on Saint-Laurent mon amour for all craftsmen If this is right then the eudaimon person would never become basely wretched nonetheless he will still not be makarios if he encounters the luck of Priam Nor indeed is he variable and easily changedor he will not be easily dislodged The Temperaments and the Arts from his eudaimonia nor by just any misfortune that happens his way but only by big and numerous misfortunes and out of these he will not become eudaimonia again in a short time but if ever in a long and complete time if in that time he gets hold of big andine thing.

Martha Nussbaum s genius or inductive thinking starting with the specific and working toward the general is apparent on virtually every page of this monumental work It s so monumental I basically read it via the index ollowing her reasoning and skipping around as a page or passage caught my eye Her chapter on Plato s Symposium is a most brilliant account of that dialogue The conceptual links she welds together are so substantial that one can visit this book almost as a reference text not only on Greek thought but also on all of experience Read this and reviews of other classics in Western Philosophy on the History page of wwwBestPhilosophyBooksorg a thinkPhilosophy Production There is this conundrum in moral philosophy that even if you cultivate a good character and act always intent on doing the right thing ate may intervene to throw some bad luck your way so that what had been a good life begins to look like a terrible life In short doing the right thing is no guarantee that one will be rewarded with a good or easy life It may even be argued that the opposite is true In a corrupt world doing the right and moral thing will often comes with some negative conseuences But this is not the topic of this book In The Fragility of Goodness Luck and Ethics in Greek Tragedy and Philosophy Martha Nussbaum examines the problem that luck and Inuisition Jack Howard fate pose in Ancient Greek philosophy I enjoyed this one Professor Nussbaum has an amazing grasp of a phenomenally wide range of aspects of the central challenges of our livesThe Chapter 11 treatment of Aristotle s view of the dialectic between luck and rationality is very good and also relevant The eudiamon life does reuire the resources that come to those with goodortune At the same time planning and control driven by rationality are also reuired If you are not experiencing eudaimonia it could be that one or both Le rondini dellOrfeo factors are missing Too much luck can blind one to what a significantactor it isThere is clear recognition of the extent to which our ontology effects our epistemology just as in Chapter 9 we saw that our deep beliefs about voluntary action made it unlikely that we would ever discover that there was no such thing p 321There have been times in my life when after totally hosing up I have realized that I had three choices 1 deny what happened 2 acknowledge what happened but claim that it was OK or 3 acknowledge how completely wrongfailedself indulgentdelusionaletc I had been and been and try to be better 1 and 2 are a Le Bug humain form of death if you make those choices something goes on but it is no longer the same you The discussion around p 366 and p 367 articulates this much better than I ever couldAppreciating the ancients does reuire that retrodiction p 370 etc win out over presentism to ask if Aristotle was misogynistic is very much that same as asking if President Lincoln was racist Professor Nussbaum does very well in addressing this p 371Chapter 13 on Euripides Hecuba is wonderfully relevantor this evening s discussion of Benito Cereno by Herman MelvilleIt would be better if I was less desultory there were too many interruptions in getting through

inscrutable mysteriousness of His actionschokengtitiktitikchokeng xxxvii As Philoctetes knew pity means action intervention on behalf of the suffering even if it is difficult and repellent If you

towards the war crimes of the Greeks we are reminded of the way in which circumstances of war can alter and erode the normal conventions of human behavior towards other humans rendering them in their indifference to the slain either bestial or like killers of beastschokengtitiktitikchokeng 37 The ceremony of animal sacrifice rom which Greek tragedy in Burkert s view derives its name expressed the awe and Le paradoxe du macronisme fearelt by this human community towards its own murderous possibilitieschokengtitiktitikchokeng 45 Now I shall change my life to a better one than before p 49
