        Too bad Cicero wasn't important.

        I am more upset by the lost works of the Epic Cycle.

          But Cicero survived, therefore he’s important

          bro... how can you say he wasn't important? he was a philosopher-statesman who lived a kino life during kino times.

            Cicero was trying to preserve the legacy of Plato and Aristotle and even did a lot of translation work into Latin, stupid homosexual. it's likely we would have lost even more of their work if it weren't for him.

            not him but i'd argue that being a leftist back then was very different

            I mean, yeah, the two terms which originated from the politics of French Revolution are going to be horrifically misplaced in 1st century BC Rome, no matter how you put it. But if you had to butcher the labels by applying them onto the past, it's clear that Cicero was center-right and Caesar was left-wing. Who was trying to preserve the ancient traditions and the status quo? Cicero. Who was trying to appeal to the people and engage in sweeping land reform? Caesar. It's clear that Caesar was the left-wing figure here.

          Yeah I just imagine the poetry that we'd have access to about the Trojan war and feel sad. It is what it is.

      Well I have plans to but one can't really complete Aristotle because he's way too massive similarly like plato

    People who cry over Aristotle make me laugh. He is the definition of a jack of all trades but master of none. Talked a lot of shit but got everything wrong. moron spent his time writing about spiderwebs without bothering to look at how a spider actually makes one; meanwhile democritus gives a correct answer because presumably he actually sought it out. Many such cases.

    I get second hand embarrassment whenever I see some fawn over that lanky, beady eyed stagirite.

      But I agree Aristotle rambles a lot.

      He developed logic you dimwit. If it wasn't for him we would still be arguing in prose like moronic continentals. We would never have gotten any progress, including the system that allows the computer you are working on to work.

        I agree to an extend except that analytics are also moronic and logical hair splitting is not a good way to do philosophy. Kant is superior to all the analytic 'philosophers' put together.

          Kant is literally Aristotle's reincarnation. He uses the same dry analytic autistic style to maximum effect.

    Ftfy. Aristotle himself didn't make it. What we have are glorified notebooks from his students.

    Less than 20% of his works have survived, and much of that (e.g., Physics) is closer to classroom lecture notes than to finished works. It is to weep.

    would have been better if none of his works survived. it took what 2000 years to move onn from him. and look where we are now. zoomers are fricking replikas and generation alpha has the cerebral consistency of ONIONS green. and will no one rise?? will no one rise and stop this? we should publicly humiliate all who ever refer to aristotle or a man inspired by him in his reasoning. we will only rely on the pure power of our ideas from now on. pure, maximal, masculine power

    I love Plato but don't care for ariatotle. Plato is full of so much life, Aristotle seems cold by comparison

      You got filtered. Aristotle wrote that way on purpose because he wanted people to engage with the thought rather than get charmed by the externalities. You have to use your brain to appreciate what he's saying - if you can manage that, he's highly enjoyable.

        What survives of Aristotle are his lectures, that’s why they’re so dry. I’m sure his dialogues would have been interesting

    Not to worry - if they are anything like his surviving works, we can do well without them.
