Why Socrates Hated Democracy from The School of Life. This is one person’s reflection on one philosopher’s reflection on democracy. It doesn’t mean you have to agree with it. But it’s worth hearing a new perspective on something we often don’t stop to consider.
Aristotle vs Pericles on the Best Form of Government. Both were men of Athens, a philosopher and a politician, with very different views. Let us also remember that Democratic Pericles led the Athenians in the Peloponnesian War to defend their exploitation of the Delian League, and Aristotle, advocate of the idealized Philosopher King who tutored Alexander the Great, who did not perhaps live up to that ideal. Who do you think was closer to the right position? . Copyright Peter Casey aka @globalkhan

Helpful map showing the resettlement of Israelites (Northern Kingdom) by the Assyrians and the Jews (Israelites specifically from the Southern Kingdom of Judah) by the Neo-Babylonians (aka Chaldeans). These removals by the two Mesopotamian empires created early disapproval communities of Israelites/Jews, though later in history, additional expulsions from their homeland would lead to an even wider Jewish Diaspora, such as after the Roman destruction of Jerusalem, the Spanish expulsion in 1492, and various other expulsions in Europe and elsewhere over the centuries. And yet, amazingly, the Jewish people continue to retain an independent cultural identity even after thousands of years.
What did the #Phoenician language sound like? One of my wonderful students asked for more details on the Phoenician language today while discussing the #IndoEuropean and #Bantu migrations. The Phoenicians didn’t call themselves Phoenicians. That’s what the Greeks called them. They were really just the people of Cana’an, the Levantine coast, so they were really called Cana’anites, or Kena’ani in their own language. Their language was a #Semitic language, just like the modern languages #Arabic and #Hebrew, as well as ancient languages of the Middle East like Akkadian and Aramaic. Canaanite/Phoenician has a lot in common with Hebrew, though modern Hebrew has lost some of the Semitic consonants that Arabic still retains, like 3ayn and Qaf. However, ancient Hebrew was extremely similar, so similar that Hebrews and other Cana’anites could probably understand each other easily. Ancient Hebrew was even written with the Phoenician alphabet! It was only later that Hebrew switched to a modified Aramaic alphabet (itself based on Phoenician), which it still uses today. Although Greek adopted their alphabet, their language was totally unrelated, which is why #Greek swapped out the unneeded sounds for some letters with ones they needed. The 3ayn became O, and the lighter of the two Hs became E. . . . #language #languages #languagelover #languagelearning #etymology #historicallinguistics #linguistics #ancienthistory #canaan #lebanon
