There's needs to be an modernize ASAP. it's starting to become annoying as hell when you're in the of a android game and all of a sudden you're OUT in pool or when you've been playing golf and the maps literally switch mid play.... like what the hell is going on with the app?
This application is amazing besides the fact that I wish obtain my old acc back and I don't know why I can't . They say that you had to save it saved under your email in to access your "lost account" but even if you did, they shouldn't automatically just give you a fresh one if you have to delete the the application for some reason. This is all really stupid because I used to love this application
Pls improve your chess game, create timer for it. When im gonna victory the game, my enemy will not create any move bcs there's no timer. So the android game will hanging there and no effect for it. I aspect something amazing from your apps but this really created me mad and sad about it. Please do message my review and create some changing. Thank you
I love this app. Hours upon hours of fun, frequently updated and fresh content added often. My main criticism is not with the application but the people. There's a constant issue of spamming, inappropriate chat and pictures that simply shouldn't be there. Increased moderation is needed I feel.
You need to seperate the mates and groups page into three tabs; friends,friend request and groups, or create the mates list on the top instead of requested list And you need to place notification on who has approved my request, to create things easier, because sometimes the player forgot who they send the request to please consider this suggestions for more efficiency.
Logic should come in a sequence: theory, experience, practiceWithout sound theory our philosphical outlook becomes based on experience and we all should know by now related experiences yield vaired responses in special individuals. And from that, practical app becomes an unsustainable mess...The issue being, very few of us study theory, we jump straight to experience and from that diversity of thought, which should be a attractive thing, becomes our undoing. Easy solution is create learning theory part of your routine and pass it along.
This Kindle edition is not as advertised and entirely useless. First and foremost, it is absolutely not an annotated edition; there is not a single note anywhere in the text. For that matter, there are no Stephanus numbers—the universal page numbers for all editions of Plato—so you will never be able to either cite this edition or search anything referred to by other writers. I'm not even sure that this is the Reeves/Grube translation, as there is no publication info whatsoever. Avoid this like the Athenian plague.
It is a very amazing translation of Plato's dialogues. It is in first person as if Socrates is having conversations (dialogues) with different people. It is Plato's method of passing on Socrates' teaching using the Socratic method. I use it for high school at home but it is a amazing read for anyone interested in Plato, Socrates, Greek philosophy, the foundations of philosophy or philosophy in general.
The ancients and specifically Socrates need to be revisited often. Don't obtain lost in the "pure reason" of the "understanding". Dont adopt a faith that is not your faith (the faith of the Logicians). Socrates did what he did for a reason and choose death over exile for a reason. Even to this day, his death echoes to the hearts of men and women when faced by the authority of Sophists. His spirit lives on, his view of philosophy is the real view. Like William James. It is for the working man, growing youths, women fighting for equality, anyone who finds themselves in a situation where the gadfly of Athens is needed. I know that is primarily of the "Apology" but all of the dialogues will remind you why to philosophize, why we should philosophize, when it is important and of course the real aim, to seek The Good.
The works of Plato are divine. It is an honor to be able to read them and I am very grateful. Reading this book has changed the method I think and positively effected every aspect of my life.I am enjoying the Hackett translation. Before making my purchase, I researched the various English translations that are available and it seemed that this was the best choice. I've bought 3 copies so far.
This is the second work in the Philosopher in 90 Mins series that I have finished, and it gives me hope that perhaps the series is not altogether hopeless (see my review of Aristotle in 90 Minutes). As a result, I am begin to considering other titles in this series. Once again, the author Paul Strathern does a amazing job giving the readers a biographical sketch of our philosopher. This is not a work that just tells you what Plato believes and leave you bored with philosophical details. However, a book that is going to go over a philosopher who has greatly contributed in the tradition of Western philosophy should probably go over more philosophical content of what that philosopher believes. Strathern engages in more of the historical setting in which Plato’s philosophy arose—from the historical meaning of the Academy, Plato’s wrestling career before being a philosopher to speculation about Plato’s childhood since his views in the Republic was so anti-family. I appreciated the author’s description of Plato’s idea as it created it’s impact in history—from the Neo-Platonists who thought they knew Plato’s ideas better than Plato, to Strathern’s claim that Plato’s idea of the philosophical king was applied in the Middle Ages and the Communist regime of the latest century. I don’t know if the latter is the most glowing example for Plato’s cause, nor do I think Communism really capture Plato’s idea faithfully. In addition, I think his description of the Middle Ages’ feudal as being Platonic in its political vision fail to acc for the fact that things were more strongly hereditary than Plato would like during the Middle Ages. I think Strathern is trying too hard. But one thing I do think the author is correct about: in his conclusion, Strathern does not how Plato’s idea is tyrannical if it was to be politically applied and carried out.
Highly readable and very approachable, real of each volume in this is book, as well as the entire series, is light in terms philosophical exposition but highly readable and makes a amazing introduction as well as a amazing source for historical context and private being so thin a volume, which is at once the greatest virtue and greatest vice of this book, there is not much to review or there is simply too much be said about what is not said. I have thus presented one key take away from the book in the title to this review: Earthly knowledge is but a shadow; reality consists of immaterial, unchanging ideas
This book will give anyone a better idea of Plato's life, time, ideas, and work. Although Strathern does not reflect on the concepts and work of Plato to an extent of understanding his actual Philosophy, but he rather briefly gives quotes and tips as to provide a primary overview of his outlook on the globe in general. If Strathern was in fact to give a more comprehensive acc of the ideas and work of Plato the whole point of compacting Plato's life into a "90 minute" book would be gone. I myself had a very min understanding of the man Plato. But from reading this book I found a lot of useful info that broadened my knowledge of the life and times of Plato. In reading this book you will meet some people that changed Plato's life, aswell as the treasured wisdom Plato handed to a lot of individuals and to the whole of society. So for the amount of time it takes to read the book in contrast with the valuable info accessible, I give this book four stars.
I really enjoyed this short synopsis of Plato's life. Think of these books (the 90 min philosopher series) as a short lecture you would attend in college. Very brief, yet there was enough detail to obtain a high level understanding of the timeline of Plato's life and his main r instance, I learned in this book the relationship between Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, which I had not known before. I also did not know that Plato started the first is was just a taste to please the palate enough to know whether you would like to search another resource to gain more detailed knowledge and a deeper look at Plato.I listened to this book as I don't have much time for reading since I am on the street so much. The narrator was amazing and the recording perfect (as to be expected from Blackstone Audio).
Heard PLATO IN 90 MINUTES (Blackstone Audiobooks), written by Paul Strathern and narrated by Robert Whitfield. It's a concise acc of the philosopher's life that first gives a biographical account. I found that interesting, in that I knew very small about the man. I also enjoyed the part that included selections from his work. Only the ending left something to be desired. It was just a chronological breakdown. Overall, I just want that this book had been available when I was a college undergraduate. PLATO would have created my life a lot easier in the Philosophy course that I took.
I've read a lot of philosophy and books translayed from this time period and language, not to mention a lot of books translated from other langues and i search this an utterly abhorent translation. Somehow Rouse manages to create the most easy sentences incomprehensible. The method he strings letters together resembles those fake webpages you stumble on that appear at a glance to be a really poorly written but relevant article but are instead actual gibberish find terms to test and obtain more page views. Furthermore, he elaborates in footnotes on things that are obvious and need no explanation but entirely fails to do this when it's helpful or 's crap. It's pathetic. I'm finding another, superior translation, which shouldn't be hard with a bar set this low.
The translation and collection is admirable, but the quality of this Signet paperback I received is very looking. For some reason it just seems crammed and most pages seem like they are typed in bold and others normal. Sometimes there will be a diagonal bolding of a page (like a line of bold going through from top left to bottom right) to the point where an "a" will have the entire bottom filled in. Not sure if I got a poor copy, but this isn't something I've ever noticed in a book before. This also makes some of the footnotes hard to read because they are even smaller so a "w" is all filled in and looks like an upside down triangle with the hint chop off.
I got this book because I haven't read Plato in a while and I wanted a convenient volume that I could hold by the bedside. It would be amazing for me, I decided, to read a dialogue each night before bed. Who knows, maybe I would even dream of Socrates. When I am not reading it, the 1800-page volume can also serve as a sturdy small bedside table, a handsome put to place your tea and biscuits. (If you don't mind setting your cup of tea on the cornerstone of western civilisation.)It has been a delight to rediscover the dialogues in these elegant contemporary translations, and a surprise to explore so a lot of extra works that I had never seen before. The publisher's workmanship is attractive too, with quality paper, amazing cloth binding, and beautiful typesetting with generous margins. I like to have room on the page to scribble my own impertinent replies to Socrates, and to ask him questions that he always affably refuses to sterday I had left the book begin in the middle of Alcibiades. When I came back into the room one of my kids was reading it. "What's this?" she said. "A novel, or a collection of stories?""It's philosophy," I said."Philosophy!" She was stunned. "I never knew philosophy was so funny."It is a testament to the quality of these translations that a kid could mistake Plato for a novelist; that she could read him without having the faintest idea that it was Serious Business; and that her first response to Plato's Socrates was laughter.
I got this edition of Plato's Works back in March, as I wanted, not only a TRULY COMPLETE edition of Plato, but modern translations as well. I have an MA in History, but one of my BA's is in Philosophy, with an emphasis in Early Western and Scholastic Philosophy. Over the years since, I have read a lot of philosophers, from Plato, to Marx, to Mao, and a lot of more.But ultimately, it ALL goes back to Plato. As Alfred North Whitehead said, all philosophy AFTER Plato was and is footnotes to him. And one cannot argue that Plato was to Western Civilisation every bit as necessary as Moses, and the other Biblical writers, and possibly is particular book is well-bound, with a dust jacket. I got it from a personal seller at Amazon, and if memory serves it was listed as VERY GOOD condition, which it is in fact. There is some minor underlining at the beginning of the text, but that is all. Buying this book hard-copy for US$35 is a ck to the content. These are all modern translations. I am used to the Jowett translations, which are all VERY dry. These are much easier to read. My knowledge of Greek is extremely limited, and even then mostly Fresh Testament Greek, which is an entirely various dialect, for lack of a better word, than what Plato private recommendation is that, if you are reading merely for primary knowledge, use this text. If you are a real scholar of Plato (as I fancy myself to be), STILL use this text, as well as other translations, including Jowett, for comparison. Better yet, learn the original Greek!For those of us who cannot learn Greek at this time, this book is a jewel. It includes EVERYTHING, either written by Plato, or thought to be, or that even came to us under his name, spuriously so. It is THE MOST COMPLETE edition out ato is the true deal. Reading him will set you to truly understand the human condition. There is no one, not Aristotle, not Moses, and I would dare to say, not even Jesus (and I say that as a Christian!), who can impart the kind of knowledge that Plato can. One who does not read him cannot be said to be any kind of scholar. In fact, if I may be so bold, I would say that reading Plato is important to even be truly sum, I encourage EVERY PERSON who is literate to read this book. In fact, it SHOULD be needed reading in EVERY high school across the land. The only reason it isn't is because, as a previous reviewer noted, the government (which controls the curriculum in our schools) would be terrified of people actually learning to THINK for themselves.
I'm not sure if I already created a comment on this not good application but again u should create the profile pic changing and the name changing thing unlimited because your current limit of things are not good and it makes me irritated and also If you updated ocho with a swap decks card I would rate this application a 5 star but until now I just wish you to fix the name changing and profile picture changing limit to unlimited or something.
amazing app. simple to use, a lot of options of games, amazing time assassin and amazing put to obtain to know fresh people who have the same interests (games). however, I'd like to create a suggestion. It would be splendid if the developer adds one more android game which is Carrom. because I think not a lot of people really know how to play Carrom or what is even Carrom. plus, it is a very fun game, I remember playing it on a Nokia phone once and I really enjoyed it. Hope you take it into consideration.
Amazing application with lots of potential. I really love the design and the method this application works. I also love the android game selections as its a amazing method to slay time. What i would like to reccommend is that the person in charge of maintaining the android game servers create it so that the video test is less laggy and that the reaction time during the live video test is faster. Hold up the amazing work and I hope to see more development and updates in the future.
im so annoyed when i test to change my id in my second test to change it and it already stated that u had already changed images a lot of times and need to test again tomorrow..this part is so create me annoyed with this app..also its notification that didnt receive. but due to dozens of android games in this application save the remaining star rates
I will give this application 5 stars, on the condition that this one thing is fixed. The android game Werewolf, you're not supposed to reveal yourself. However, other players will force you to, or else they'll slay you! Please, and I repeat, PLEASE indicate somewhere in the rules that during the game, NO ONE is to reveal their card, and you have to be deceitful in to win. This is another method that people have been cheating, it needs to be taken care of.
Android games are amazing but I hope you can block people that are pervert. Especially in Malaysian group chat, most of them are pervert and love to talk dirty. If you can't block them just sensored words like "sangap, vc, awek, single etc" which you can see it by yourself. It is so disgusting which we begin the chat to play the android games not to search the pervert people who wants prostitute! Edited: i just read that your have blocked people that have been reported. I did reported but nothing happen!!!!
NO TIMER IN CHESS & PEOPLE CHEATS! They tend to leave the android game very long that i cannot wait! Finally, when i forgotten to play after 24h, the enemy wins? For what??? That's not winning, it's because when i had moved, he is not moving even after i waited almost AN HOUR!!!! PLEASE PUT TIMER OPTION IN YOUR CHESS GAME!!!!!!
Plato’s Republic (Greek: Πολιτεία, Politeia; Latin: Res Publica) was written in 380 BC and this ver was translated by Benjamin Jowett in 1871. It is a fiction book in the format of a discussion between Socrates and others. It aims to debate and conclusively determine the meaning of Justice. Socrates, the main character, was a Greek philosopher and the mentor of Plato. His philosophy is the basis and origin of the western philosophy. As a high schooler who often debates related ideals and questions, I found this book to be very eye-opening and fascinating. Socrates doctrine proves itself real even in this day in age. That just goes to show, when it comes to ideals and behavior, humans haven’t changed very much. Republic is very well written and even after thousands of years it still captures its audience with its provoking revelations and relatable content. If you often search yourself debating related questions then you might just search your answers here, but if you dislike philosophy or are set in your ways you probably will not search this book to be interesting. For me, this book was an enjoyable challenge and I definitely would read it again.
A book that changed my life. Everyone should read it since it's written in an easily accessible language but the universal truths contained within are timeless and apply to any race, religion, gender or political preference. I believe that if people thought about what Plato tried to create us understand, the society we live in would benefit tremendously.
why the login option for fb has gone?it's heartbreaking when i reinstalled because of the useless modernize and see the facebook login option is hard works on the ranking and mates i've created in the android game were lost contact. please do some useful updates on securityas we noticed that there are players were hacking in werewolf
Amazing app. But please fix this issue After releasing the fresh werewolf "mystic card" the previous druid card's ability isn't working at all. Even it somehow affects for the City crier role too" Please fix this 2 roles immediately. The fun is going to be ruined.
