Dear Friends:

Since the beginning of the PLGO Community, our main intention was provide useful tools and contents to our members, visitors and friends.

This involves a lot of work, and finally the effort of all and each one member of our community.

This can be only reached with your valuable comments, suggestions and contributions to such project: today we are reaching 1,000,000 of document views, in in only 20 months.

We are sure that we are in the right path. We will still working and looking to increase the strong of our Community as a productive entity, and now seems more realizable to reach our propose to provide a 10,000 volumes online library, to the public the 2015 year.

Commentary. John Cooper. Noteworthy Lectures (11.28.11)

Today, Ryan Clevenger announced in his blog the Lectures of John Cooper “delivered the John Locke Lectures at Oxford this year on “Ancient Greek Philosophy as a Way of Life” examining four ancient philosophies: Socrates, Aristotelianism, Stoicism, and Platonism (mostly on Plotinus).”

The 4 readings are available as audio files, directly from the Oxford University.

As the same Clevenger says, “The last lecture was the most interesting for me as it has the most to bear on our understanding of the intellectual world within which Christianity swam from the 3rd-6th century.”
