Idiot The same so called Reasons for the gods are still the best we can do with all of our technological advances since Rome? Bastards In praise of Cicero who for his time was highly critical in his critiue of not only the existence of gods but what their inherent nature must be Good for you Cicero and shame to all those who have done no better since him prattling the same so called proofs when so much has been gained as of late The reasons this work must be read1 To gain an appreciation for the v

In his Treatise on the Nature of the Gods Cicero tells us Here he gives us not dogma or a rehash of myths but a sense of what educated men from the time of the late republic actually believed This book is written as a dialogue and its characters freely argue for their points of view and the bases for their beliefs or lack thereof Interesting but not so interesting that I didn’t find my

    MOBI De natura deorum Kindle Ë De natura PDF \ é chickenshedcafe.uk é natura ebok, deorum book, De natura ebok, De natura deorum PDF/EPUBThe direct antecedent to Hume's altogether superior Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion this book is however a treasure trove for information about the various ancient philosophies Epicurean Stoic Academic Skeptic Cynic and Peripatetic as they stood in the 1st century BCE It is a thought provoking dialogue and as always with Cicero possesses that unctuous yet enjoyable prose even though in our age of disbelief the work's immediacy is uite lost; that is it is not exciting as it perhaps would've been centuries ago to read again and again But I really want to get at the nature of the gods now and so to gain insight into this myster The ties between theology and philosophy were once like that between astrology and astronomy; let us not dwell on these facts like Rousseau in the Essay on the Arts and Sciences Let us move on A new athei
