SUMMARY De consolatione philosophiae ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub FREE DOWNLOAD Ú E-book, or Kindle E-pub ¶ Boethius Boethius ¶ 9 SUMMARY One of the most influential books in the history of Western thought The Consolation of Philosophy was written in a prison cell by a condemned man Anicius Manlius Severinus Boethius c 480–524 was a Roman scholar theologian philosopher and statesman Imprisoned by the Ostrogothic king Theodoric probably on trumped up subversion charges he was thrown into a remote prison where he was eventually executedWhile awaiting his fate he wrote this dialogue in alternating pr. I ve meant to read this for a very long time probably since I found out that the title of The Consolations of Philosophy another book I uite enjoyed was borrowed from this one In case you don t know the background I ll be uick The writer was leading a perfectly satisfactory life in fact even better than satisfactory when one day everything went seriously yuck in case you need a theme song to understand this you can t say I don t try to provide a multi media experience with these reviews He was put in gaol after being set up and accused of treason There would have been I can only assume little doubt in his mind how things were likely to turn out but he spent a year waiting for his trail while expecting to be executed he was executed by the way and as executions go his was a particularly nasty one While waiting for all this to happen he wrote this little book Now if I was waiting to be executed or thought that was the most likely outcome of the situation I found myself in I m not sure this is the sort of book I would have written and in saying that I think that reflects badly on me rather than on Boethius To be fair Boethius in this book doesn t start out as the life of the party At the start of this remarkable little book he is very upset with the way things have turned out and who could blame himBut while he is in prison he is visited by an incredibly lovely woman who just so happens to turn out to be the incarnation of philosophy It is hardly surprising that sex is out of the uestion and so they chat instead as one is likely to do when visited by the embodiment of wisdom It should also come as no surprise that they chat about things that are pretty well at the front and centre of Boethius mind Obviously these are not going to be how well the local team is going in the Christians Vs the Lions competition at the local sports ground this was 526 AD after all but rather a fascinating little discussion about the fickleness of fortune leading onto a DM on why God allows suffering to exist if he is all powerful I thought the stuff about the fickleness of fortune at the start of this book was very interesting I even agreed with much of it which was essentially a repeat of Plato s idea from Gorgias that it is better to suffer a wrong than to commit one mixed in with the Stoic idea that you should be prepared to lose all that you have because one day you are going to anyway I am someone without a religious faith but I do believe these are maxims that are as good as any others to live by I also think that you are likely to learn something useful from misfortune than from good fortune and that in the long run you are probably likely to end up better off due to your losses than your wins So I found reading all this a little hard given how much nodding I was doing along the way Having said that I would be surprised if I could be uite as rational as Boethius if I was ever confronted with the same or even similar circumstances or uite so stoical The second half of the book is about the nature of god and why god allows suffering And before we start with his answers to this we need to talk about whether or not Boethius was a Christian If I had read a newer version of this book there would have been an introduction and I would have had a chance to see what the latest thinking is on this I had thought before I started reading that he probably had to be a Christian I knew that this little volume was a standard text throughout the Middle Ages and so figured that he had to be a Christian if that was going to be the case However there were a few things that he said in this that really made viewing him as a Christian a little problematic Firstly there is a bit early on where he says that in the beginning God ordered the universe Of course the Christian God doesn t order the universe He creates it out of nothing It is the pegan Roman and Greek gods who in the beginning give order to the Chaos Another thing I thought was a bit of a give away was the fact that at no time does Boethius mention Christ I don t mean to be rude but when was the last time you had a conversation with a Christian without Christ being mentioned even once I know this is a short book but a Christian couldn t have written for so long on such a topic without ever mentioning Christ The other bit that I think makes it hard to view Boethius as your standard Christian is that he has a very strange idea of freedom of the will and providence I m not sure many Christians would agree that our free will is limited due to our inability to understand necessity My reading of what is said here is that we do not stuff up God s plan for the future by our random acts of free will as you might expect us to by our changing the script along the way and this is because while we think we are acting out of our own discretion we are actually acting according to rules God s rules that always remain beyond our ken I must admit that I found the latter parts of this book hard work but mostly because I think the problem of evil and suffering is harder to solve than is done here in what I think is a rather formal and logical way If only suffering could be put aside so easily This was something else that reminded me of Plato s Gorgias I ve always thought Plato was better at stating the problems with the pointless and almost adolescent nature of asking philosophical uestions than in answering them I felt much the same with how the problems of suffering and freedom were stated here compared to how these problems were resolvedThe second part of the book was the most Platonic part of the book I felt The style was much the same as reading a Platonic dialogue and the arguments were or less straight Plato That is another reason why the Christian stuff didn t uite work for me While we could argue over whether or not Boethius was a Christian no one could argue about whether he was a Neo Platonist or notLook this is a fascinating work any work written by someone waiting to die is going to have a compelling power about it But one that also shows a way to become reconcilled to fate and such an awful fate in such a circumstance is doubly fascinating Whether you agree or disagree with his conclusions the mere fact he can form any conclusions at all is enough to be wondered at That he is so accepting of his fate is breathtakingThere are lovely little poems throughout this book too They are dropped into the text and on the theme of what is being discussed in the text at the time They really add an entirely unexpected level of delight to this workAnd the Consolation of Philosophy Well to me it doesn t lie in the answers he finds but rather in the act of thinking this through in the first place Time for a crap comparision with something in my life Obviously I have never been through anything nearly as horrible as Boethius goes through here but once I had a very stressful and anxious night thinking about some work that I needed to do and needed to do particularly well something I was fairly confident I was likely to stuff up uite convincingly I was so worried thinking about the likely conseuences of stuffing up the work I was going to do that I couldn t sleep In fact I could hardly even breathe After tossing and turning for an hour I finally got up and sat at the dining room table reading TS Eliot s Portrait of a Lady definitely not one of Eliot s easier poems The intensity of my concentration on the poem in trying to understand it and trying to follow all of the twists and turns in the imagery meant that it simply wasn t possible to go on worrying about my problems at work When I finally went to bed I was able to keep my focus on the poem and its language and even hear Chopin playing somewhere in the back of my mind I can hardly remember what my work problem was but that night with Eliot was one I will never forgetI read this book on my Kindle a wonderful thing but poor old aren t making the money out of me they probably had hoped You see I ve found manybooksnet and what an amazing place that is I ve put so many books onto my Kindle from there that it now has
