Say that Socrates met Max Stirner- how would he try to counter him?

>> No.13162907

He would slap Stirner on the ass and tell him that he's now his property.

>> No.13162912

they would be friends and just have normal conversations

>> No.13163015

He wouldn't, he'd just be savouring the delicious milk and having friendly banter.

Read Republic books 1 and 2 for an idea. Plato would probably say Stirner blushed and called Socrates a baka before rushing out, just like what happened with Thrasymachus.

I doubt Stirner would have agreed with his definition of Justice.

>> No.13165909

I feel like stirner would have probably done a better job of convincing Socrates that he should have fled Athens after his trial.

The both would probably have a laugh about the topic of love from the symposium.

They would have a major disagreement with metaphysics as Stirner would call the Forms a spook

I mean this isn't even controversial. Most immoral people admit to being miserable and forced to be continue being immoral just to mitigate the consequences of their immorality.

sometimes i like to play dollies with my books. i put them together and i make one say "I'M THE TREATISE" and the other say "NO I AM THE TREATISE" and then they kiss or sometimes they kill. then when one is dead, i like to open the dead one and pretend like the bigger one is reading the dead one (the winner is the big one mostly). then the big one opens and i have to read them both at the same time. then when i read them at the same time i become like their baby, and then i'm like them. then i get another book, the mommy book, and that book i don't open or read. then when the books go to sleep, i sneak out another book (this one is usually a rogue) and i read it just like you read any other book.

>> No.13168063

Sometimes I get hear about a very rare book everyone is looking for. A book that everyone seems to talk about, everyone secretly wished they had, etc. And lo and behold I find it in the back seat of my car. its bound in leather with gold lettering in the most exquisite font. I find a very good occasion where I’ll have a few hours to really dive in and take it apart. I’ll sit down open the book carefully, flip to the beginning and start in earnest. After a few paragraphs I stop, look around, a LAUGH OUT LOUD, my laugh reverberating through the cosmos like the shrill of a screaming eternal and infinite God, I slam the book and throw it over my shoulder and it disappears into the void

>> No.13168206

I hate this style. It's just one assumption after another. There's always some fool that suddenly starts agreeing with everything said. The agreement is kept short enough that the readers eye is immeriately drawn to the next statement of conviction until at last the chain of weak links comes to a halt on a general principle that sounds logical.
But what if you disagree with any one statement? Then that whole house of cards comes crashing down.
Life a quality of the mind? No, that's ridiculous. A tree is also alive. Just because blacks are mindless animals, doesn't mean they're lifeless.
Fuck you Plato for penning this book. Athens was full of smug assholes that thought Achilles and the tortoise was clever, because idiots fell for it

Diogenes should have pulled a knife and proclaimed:"Behold, a dead man!"

Far from being Dionysian or perverse, obstinance in Evil inevitably becomes extremely anal, continuous toil to abate consequence and guilt.

>> No.13168319

>being this illiterate

They should have never taught u to read

>> No.13168335

Nah, that technique is stupid. The text literally has to tell you at every single step that it is correct.
At one point Socrates makes the claim that a good thief and a good guard need the same skillset to be good at their professions. That's plain wrong.

The text is littered with such tricks and outright false statements.

Uh no. Moral people don’t feel guilty their moral. What you described is the immoral persons attempt at morality and their feelings of it so far, they are 3 days in, and can’t stop complaining

Moral people don’t complain because they have faith. Your argument is absolutely wrong and a projection from the side of the wicked, it’s obvious in the incoherence of your argument and the scapegoating. Moral people don’t have to do that because they acknowledge they are sinners as well, they don’t have to bash others in order to feel better about themselves.

>> No.13168350

Do you understand that you are allowed to disagree with the books you read? Part of the point of Plato is that you are to self-insert as him, or as his interlocutor. If you disagree with Plato's assumptions, try to think about or write down why, and what the consequences of the divergence are. Plato's Dialogues are a teaching text. They are not useful unless you think with them.

>teaching text
I'm critiquing the structure of the argumentation, which I find woefully lacking.

The dialogues are a cheap way to make use of instinctual peer pressure and more to strengthen Platos arguments that way.

To illustrate what I mean, imagine a televised discussion between two men. Behind each person sits one member of the audience. Behind the first, the audience member smiles and shakes his head in agreement, behind the second, there is visual disagreement. Would that not be an inordinate influencing of the viewers?
Same deal with a figure in a book whos only purpose for large parts of the "discussion" is to agree.

Stop being such a bootlicker.

>Life is a quality of the mind? No, that's ridiculous. A tree is also alive.
But a tree doesn't have the kind of "life" about which one complains. The "life" being discussed here is the kind that can be "the good life" or "a shitty life." "Life" in the relevant sense is indeed a quality of the mind. There is no "fuck my life" without a mind.

>> No.13168540

>no fuck my life without a mind
There is. If you know something about plants, you recognize plants that have been dealt a shit hand.

Stirner would get blown the fuck out by Socrates.

Pretty much anyone would.

this, could Stirner speak ancient greek?

>> No.13168692

They're not complaining.
That's the point.
We, with our minds, can conceive that the plant has been dealt a shit hand, but the plant cannot. The plant, not having a mind, has no "good life" or "bad life". One's life, in the relevant sense, is an idea. No mind, no ideas.
