Wallace Online Iamblichus' Life of Pythagoras, or Pythagoric Life | Universal Theosophy Approach ye genuine philosophic few, The Pythagoric Life belongs to you: But far, far off ye vulgar herd profane; For Wisdom’s voice is heard by you in vain: And you, Mind’s lowest link, and darksome end, Good Rulers, Customs, Laws, alone can mend. [infopopup tag=pythagoras] Introduction When it is considered that Pythagoras was the father of philosophy, authentic memoirs of his life cannot fail to be uncommonly interesting to every lover of wisdom, and particularly to those who reverence the doctrines of Plato, the most genuine and the best of all his disciples. Of this very extraordinary man there is a life extant by Eunapius, the substance of which I have given in my History of the Restoration of the Platonic Theology, and to which I refer the English reader. He performed some few particulars relative to the veneration of divinity by himself, without his associates and disciples; but was inseparable from his familiars in most of his operations. Chapter I. Chapter II. Chapter. Chapter IV.

The Pythagorean Question What were the beliefs and practices of the historical Pythagoras? This apparently simple question has become the daunting Pythagorean question for several reasons. 2. 2.1 Chronological Chart of Sources for Pythagoras 2.2 Post-Aristotelian Sources for Pythagoras The problems regarding the sources for the life and philosophy of Pythagoras are quite complicated, but it is impossible to understand the Pythagorean Question without an accurate appreciation of at least the general nature of these problems. In the Pythagorean Memoirs, Pythagoras is said to have adopted the Monad and the Indefinite Dyad as incorporeal principles, from which arise first the numbers, then plane and solid figures and finally the bodies of the sensible world (Diogenes Laertius VIII. 25). A third source of evidence for early Greek philosophy is regarded with great skepticism by most scholars and, in the case of most early Greek philosophers, used only with great caution. 3. 4. 5.

Article 31: Number – The Triad – Part 5 – Triangles – Part 3 - Cosmic Core Return to Free Library Return to Number Menu Previous Article Next Article This article will round out our discussion of triangles by discussing Golden and Pythagorean triangles. Golden triangles will be discussed again in the section about the Pentad (Articles 52-59). A golden triangle, or sublime triangle, is an isosceles triangle in which the duplicated side is in the golden ratio to the distinct side. In the case below, the ratio a:b is equivalent to the golden ratio φ. This means if b = 1 then a = 1.618… Also, b:a :: a: (a+b) The golden triangle is also the shape of the triangles found in the points of pentagrams. The golden triangle can also be found in a decagon (10-sided polygon) by connecting any two adjacent vertices to the center. The golden triangle is also the only triangle to have its three angles in a 2:2:1 proportion. The golden triangle is also used to form a logarithmic spiral, as seen below on the far right. The Golden Gnomon is closely related to the golden triangle. Area = 6

PDF Philolaus 1. Life and Writings 1.1 Date, City of Origin and Connections to Other Philosophers We know very little about Philolaus' life. Diogenes Laertius says that Philolaus was from the Greek city of Croton in southern Italy, but our earliest sources are divided as to his city or origin. The ancient tradition gives no indication of who Philolaus' teacher(s) might have been. 1.2 The Authenticity Question In the case of most ancient authors, the assumption is that a text handed down in their name is genuine, unless strong reasons can be given for regarding it as a forgery. In 1962, Guthrie, in his History of Greek Philosophy, regarded the issue of the authenticity of the fragments handed down in Philolaus' name as undecided, although he commented that opponents of authenticity did “not seem to be at their best on the subject” (331). Aristotle's testimony on the Pythagoreans gives rise to one remaining puzzle, which is relevant to the authenticity of the core of fragments identified by Burkert. 2.
