There is at this time a Parian philosopher residing in Athens, of whom I have heard; and I came to hear of him in this way:--I came across a man who has spent a world of money on the Sophists, Callias
, the son of Hipponicus, and knowing that he had sons, I asked him: 'Callias
,' I said, 'if your two sons were foals or calves, there would be no difficulty in finding some one to put over them; we should hire a trainer of horses, or a farmer probably, who would improve and perfect them in their own proper virtue and excellence; but as they are human beings, whom are you thinking of placing over them?
(25) He even engages in a longish aside about a wealthy man, Callias
, who pays a famous teacher to help educate his sons (APOLOGIA, pp.
Ok so gossip is evil, but did you know that Socrates was severely lampooned not just by Aristophanes in his comedic play The Clouds but also by comic poets Callias
, Eupolis, Telecleid, Mnesimachus, and Ameipsias and it wasn't because of anything serious like his philosophy but because he was untidy and unkempt, even ugly?
Solamente el realismo peripatetico tomista, con la doble nocion de realidad natural y universalidad racional, es capaz de aventar la niebla espesa en que se debate el pensamiento contemporaneo; solamente la inteligencia (cuya funcion es "discernir al hombre en Callias
"), puede distinguir en las obras de arte lo que permanece de lo que varia y, por consiguiente, expresar las condiciones eternas de la belleza.
The central text appealed to in the traditional view that matter is the source of numerical diversity comes at the end of Metaphysics 7.8: "And when we have the whole, such and such a form in this flesh and these bones, this is Callias
or Socrates; and they are different on account of their matter, for that is different; but they are the same in form; for the form is indivisible." (7) We should understand this view's reference to "matter" as a reference to what is often called nonfunctional matter (that is, some mixture or combination of the elements) (8) rather than to functional matter (that is, parts of the organism's body--flesh and blood, or the various organs).
Plato esmenta Fedre (18) tres vegades als seus dialegs: al Protagoras se'n fa una petita allusio a 315c, en la que se'l presenta com un dels joves que escolten els discursos del sofista Hipias a casa de Callias
; al Convit el seu paper es forca mes rellevant, en tant que es un dels convidats a casa d'Agato i que, a mes a mes, tria el fil central dels discursos que es pronunciaran (19), dels quals ell mateix ofereix el primer; al Fedre, per contra, es l'interlocutor principal-i unic--de Socrates.
She was the daughter of Miltiades, sister of Cimon, wife of Callias
, and linked in a number of anecdotes to Pericles.
It has a coherent literary genealogy, one that Saint-Amand situates in a number of practical, cultural, and literary ties, practices, and "sociabilities" ranging from friendship (cf., the morbid, if deliriously hilarious, anecdote concerning Jean Keck, Ernest Cabaner, a shared pair of clothes and an apartment fire, 51-52); salons such as those of Nina de Callias
and Antoine Cros; and, last but not least, what the author refers to perspicaciously as the "nebuleuse Parnassienne i.e., a complex, loosely affiliated movement whose poetic and socio-political diversity resists simple reduction to what is by now a surely familiar heuristic Procrustean bed of, among other things, "impassibility" and "social disengagement" (54-61).
For instance, 'the physician does not cure a man, except in some incidental way, but Callias
or Socrates or some other called by some such individual name, who happens to be a man'.
