The greatest philosopher who ever lived. A dissolute tyrant in need of an education. What could possibly go wrong? Plato was the most brilliant thinker of his age. Head of the Academy in Athens, friend of the best minds of his generation, his philosophy was famous across the Greek world. But would he ever get the chance to try his ideas out? Dionysius the Younger was Tyrant of Syracuse, feckless son of a famous father. His rule ran from Sicily to the Adriatic, but he had time only for debauchery and dancing girls. The ancient cities of Sicily were in ruins, destroyed by the rising power of Carthage. His father´s empire was slipping away. His austere, disciplined uncle Dion, Plato´s most beloved pupil and the power behind the throne, was in despair. So was born the dream of making a real philosopher-king by taking an unworthy young man with absolute power and shaping him into a model of wisdom, integrity, and benevolence. In the last generation of Greek independence, Plato´s doomed journeys to Syracuse were an attempt to turn thoughts into actions, to make a philosophical ideal into a political reality. But philosophy could be a dangerous business. 1. Language: English. Narrator: James Patrick Cronin. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/027451/bk_adbl_027451_sample.mp3.

Tyranny and Democracy in Ancient Greece: The Hi...

Tyranny in ancient Greece was not a phenomenon limited to any particular period. Tyrants could be found in power throughout Greece, ruling poleis from the 7th century BC right through to the 2nd century BC, when Roman domination effectively put an end to this form of government throughout the Hellenistic world. That said, the heyday of tyranny was undoubtedly the 7th and 6th centuries BC, and it is in this period, known as the Age of Tyrants, that large numbers of tyrannies arose, particularly in the Peloponnese. The Age of Tyrants ended on the Greek mainland with the expulsion of the Peisistratidai in 510 BC, but it continued in other parts of the Greek world, particularly in the Greek cities of Sicily, where tyranny did not finally end until the removal of Dionysius II of Syracuse in 344 BC. In Asia Minor, tyranny survived the Persian conquest until the days of the Roman conquest. The governments of the majority of the Greek states in the Archaic and Classical periods were in the hands of local aristocrats, and it is a modern preoccupation with the Athenian democracy or Sparta´s unique system that has tended to obscure this fact. Oligarchy was the norm, and political power derived from wealth and birth. As the wealth of city states grew, so, too, did the number of citizens who, despite personal wealth, found themselves outside the very limited aristocratic elite that conspired to maintain the political power of the few. In today´s modern world every political regime, even the most authoritarian or repressive, describes itself as democracy or a democratic people´s republic. The concept of rule by the people, on behalf of the people, has come to be accepted as the norm, and very few would overtly espouse the cause of dictatorship, absolute monarchy or oligarchy as the most desirable political system upon which to base the government of any country. It is also generally accepted that democracy, as a political ideology, began in Greece, specifically 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Clem.

Tyranny in ancient Greece was not a phenomenon limited to any particular period. Tyrants could be found in power throughout Greece, ruling poleis from the seventh century BC right through to the second century BC, when Roman domination effectively put an end to this form of government throughout the Hellenistic world. That said, the heyday of tyranny was undoubtedly the seventh and sixth centuries BC, and it is in this period, known as the Age of Tyrants, that large numbers of tyrannies arose, particularly in the Peloponnese.

Oligarchy was the norm, and political power derived from wealth and birth. As the wealth of city states grew, so, too, did the number of citizens who, despite personal wealth, found themselves outside the very limited aristocratic elite that conspired to maintain the political power of the few. These disenfranchised men came, more and more, to resent their lack of political influence, and this dissatisfaction was fueled by the increasing use of the hoplite as the main weapon of the period, which brought all male citizens closer to each other and emphasized the interdependence that existed between individuals. The sense of camaraderie engendered a growing understanding of the potential power of the armed citizen. With that realization came the emergence of individuals who were not prepared to accept the status 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Clem.

The Christ of the Redemption: The Leg, the Balance, the Weight and the Volume, The Mechanics of Spiritual Warfare and Energetic Alteration - As a soul meanders through the spiritual life, it is inevitable that a time of persecution will come into their perimeter. This tome engages the listener to understand the mechanism by which such spiritual warfare is confronted by the heavenly powers and how the alteration of the intrinsic matter must occur in order to have a lasting peace with those who engage in battle with the believer. The Christ of the Redemption is an experiential commentary on the works of Jacob Boehme and Dionysius describing the mechanism by which God brings transformation from heaven to earth within the soul of humankind. And as you follow this path, their words become ever more clear and understandable and the mechanism becomes a tangible through-way that the seeker can follow when moving through the dangerous world where spiritual warfare has entered into the physical realm. This audiobook will teach you how to move properly through the warfare, and into the peace that transcends all understanding; even when other people are not cooperating with your vision of love. 1.
