Abstract: Symmetry in Finite Geometry
Symmetry is often described as invariance under a group of transformations. An unspoken assumption about symmetry in Euclidean 3-space is that the transformations involved are continuous. Diamond theory rejects this assumption, and in so doing reveals that Euclidean symmetry may itself be invariant under rather interesting groups of non continuous (and a symmetric) transformations. (These might be called noncontinuous groups, as opposed to so-called discontinuous (or discrete ) symmetry groups. See Weyl's Symmetry For example, the affine group A on the 4-space over the 2-element field has a natural noncontinuous and asymmetric but symmetry-preserving action on the elements of a 4x4 array. ( Details By embedding the 4x4 array in a 4x6 array, then embedding A in a supergroup that acts in a natural way on the larger array, one can, as R. T. Curtis discovered, construct the Mathieu group M which is, according to J. H. Conway, the "most remarkable of all finite groups."

[Back To A List Of Philosophers]
(BC, 469-399) Of Athens, Socrates left no books; what we know of him comes to us through the writings of Plato . Personally, the mentioning of Socrates brings to mind the "Socratic method"; a method employed, to my great frustration, I recall, by a number of my law school professors; a method which hardly brought about many answers, just more and more questions. "Feigning total ignorance before the opinionated, he would with celebrated Socratic irony pose a simple question such as 'What is courage?' From the replies given he would construct contradictory consequences and so start again. His aim was to act as a midwife to those in labour for knowledge." Socrates, unlike Plato, was always conscious of how much he did not know, and claimed superiority to unthinking people only in that he was aware of his own ignorance where they were not.

    126. Louis Bouyer
    Article by Louis Bouyer about St. Philip Neri and his place in Renaissance Rome, taken from the spring 1995 issue of The Dawson Newsletter .
    THE ROMAN SOCRATES [ST. PHILIP NERI] Louis Bouyer What place has Philip in such a garden as this, where even the loveliest flowers smell of brimstone? [ Reference is to Rome in the Renaissance.] The call from his peaceful retreat at San Germano to the turmoil of Rome was unquestionably a call to the apostolate. On arriving there he set himself at once to win back the youth to Christ, but what weapons was he to use against the old pagan magic? He did not seem attracted by any of the more ancient Orders; though he was still friendly with the Dominicans who had brought him up, he was no more likely to join them than he was to yield to the invitation of the monks of Monte Cassino. Nor did he feel drawn to the Capuchins ... He sent so many recruits to the Jesuits that Ignatius called him 'The Society's Bell', calling others to enter while remaining outside himself. The rigorous methods of the saintly Spaniard, says Newman, had the same effect on this free Florentine as Saul's armor had on David. He preferred to go forth to meet the subtle attractions of the new Paganism armed only with the more powerful attractions of purity and truth. It was not that he condemned any method, old or new; let those use them who made them; for his part, he could never adapt himself to them; he was too simple, too spontaneous, too direct, perhaps even too lively, to place any armour between himself and the world he planned to conquer. Though this involved the loss of many resources both in attack and defense, it did away with anything which might have hindered direct contact with the souls he sought; as it was, everyone could find immediate access to his mind and heart.

In the absence of primary sources Socrates, apparently, never wrote anythingwe are obliged to rely on these writers and on a few references of Aristotle for our knowledge of what Socrates taught. Plato 's portrayal of Socrates is idealistic; when, however, we correct it by reference to Xenophon 's more practical view of Socrates' teaching, the result cannot be far from historic truth.

    This web page is part of a biographical database on Great Ideas . These are living ideas that have shaped, defined and directed world culture for over 2,500 years. By definition the Great Ideas are radical. As such they are sometimes misread, or distorted by popular simplifications. Understanding a Great Idea demands personal engagement. Our selection of Great Ideas is drawn from literature and philosophy science art music ... theatre , and cinema . We also include biographies of pivotal historical and religious figures , as well as contributions from women and other historically under-represented minorities . The result is an integrated multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary database built upon the framework of a Great Books Core List developed by Mortimer Adler (1902-2001) nearly 50 years ago.

    The editors of Seulemonde offered me three thoughtful and wide-ranging questions about my hypertext essay collection Socrates in the Labyrinth . The questions concentrated on the title essay, which is also the longest and most general in the collection. In response I have written a small hyper-essay which is linked to phrases in the questions . There are a bit above 25 short pieces of text and a bit more than 50 links, arranged to facilitate returning to the questions.

    The Seductions of Socrates
    David K. O’Connor
    The Enlightenment found in him a hero and martyr of autonomous reason, while Romanticism felt the burn of his old flame when it rediscovered irony as a privileged vehicle of philosophy. Even today these are the two interpretive camps with which the still disputing heirs affiliate. It is not the worst way to gauge whether philosophers are “analytic” or “continental” to ask them what they find most attractive in Socrates. In Anglo–American circles, the saint of reason is regnant; elsewhere Socrates wears the crown of the Compleat Ironist whose ruthless dialectic exposes the ways reason must inevitably undermine or (we might as well say it) deconstruct itself. Books and articles continue to accumulate, the love letters of the scholarly caste. This, too, is a love letter. Socrates had other ways to express his loves, and wrote no books. Our experience of him and his ideas depends almost entirely on the writings of three of his contemporaries, two admirers and one detractor. All three wrote in genres bound to frustrate every foursquare scholar’s desire to pluck out the heart of the mystery of the historical Socrates. Our oldest major source comes from the detractor, Aristophanes, the greatest comic dramatist of the ancient world. His caricature of Socrates in the Clouds , produced in 423 b.c., when Aristophanes was about thirty and Socrates in his mid–forties, is the only substantial source we have that was written by someone who knew Socrates but was not one of his devoted companions. This makes it a precious document. Many scholars dismiss it and are offended by what they take to be the manifest unfairness of Aristophanes’ portrait of Socrates. Indeed, Aristophanes’ portrait is unflattering, as would be expected of a comic caricature. But a caricature cannot have its intended effect unless its exaggerations are also revealing. The works of Plato and Xenophon, Socrates’ two greatest literary admirers, are full of thoughtful responses to Aristophanes that show they took the critique in the
