6.4.2013 To start your day...

Quote of the day:
Friendship and marriage. The best friend will probably get the best wife, because a good marriage is based on a talent for friendship.   --Friedrich Nietzsche, Huamn All Too Human Sec 7

Random excerpt from the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy:
Medieval philosophical texts have as their formal sources Greek and Arabic commentaries, Neoplatonic treatises, dialogues, and allegories, as well as Aristotelian treatises, and the works of Augustine. Before the formal development of universities and university curricula that dictated the established forms for writing philosophical/theological texts in the 13th century, medieval philosophical texts were written in a wide variety of forms. In the 12th century, writers such as Abelard and Alan of Lille composed dialogues, allegories, axiomatic works, disputations, and summae, but the next two centuries were dominated by the forms of commentary on Peter Lombard's Sentences, various forms of the disputed question, and the summa.
