Stoicism, a Philosophical Basis for Ecology?

Koffi Alladakan
Through its ideal of “living in harmony with nature”, the Portico appears to be a philosophy that invites men to take their relationship with the world seriously. In order to achieve wisdom, the essential mark of which is sobriety, it has established principles, some of which seems to have an ecological value. While considering nature as an organic and spiritual entity which parts together form a whole, stoicism posits that it constitutes the destiny whose laws are inescapable and instructs men ...

Lessons from Confucius Ideas: Chinese Universities’ African Students Reflections

Samson Chaima Robin Kajawo
In most normal universities in China, Confucian lessons are included in the in-ternational students study programs. This is because Confucianism is the most prevalent deep rooted historical philosophy in China. It is based on the teach-ings of Confucius (551 - 479 B.C.), a virtuous man who never wanted to be as-sociated with insincerity, immorality and corruption. Though he failed to im-plement his ideas when he was alive, he live

Luiz Maurício Bentim da Rocha Menezes
On Plato’s Phaedrus, Socrates, in his Second Speech (243e9-257b6), decides to make a demonstration [aπoδειξιc] that the madness of love was given to us by gods for our happiness. This consists in finding the truth about human nature of the soul [ψυχncφvσεωc], both divine and human. We take this demonstration as an object of our analysis, specifically the passage 245c, where Socrates will affir
