Winged Dike

Having just spent the past couple of hours walking about in the dark, talking to myself about Dike, Eros, and Thanatos in The Republic, I feel considerably less intellectually constipated and downtrodden than had been the case the case for the previous few days. To provide context, I've unexpectedly inherited the responsibility for lecturing one-hundred and fifty students on the last six books of the aforementioned tome on Friday, on account of the Professor talking sick leave, and his replacement not being set to take over at the last minute. Thus it fell to me to form the bridge and come-up with some clever way of tying many disparate themes into a digestible, two-hour lecture, which was causing me much consternation: how to do it?

Anyhow, it seems that I've a workable way of doing it now: structure it around those three forces as formative events in the soul.

The last couple of weeks have been peculiar in general. Updates may follow before senility and forgetfulness set in, if the Fates allow.
