Extractions: Marinus of Neapolis was probably a Samaritan , but just possibly a Jew. He became a convert to the Greek way of life and joined the Academy in Athens where he was a pupil of Proclus who was head of the Academy. In fact when Proclus wrote a commentary on the Myth of Er, he dedicated it to Marinus. Marinus succeeded Proclus as head of the Academy at Athens in 485. We are told in [5] that:- ... he lectured on Pappus ' commentary to Book V of the Almagest (in particular his discussion of parallax ); and there are still extant lecture notes on the Data of Euclid Marinus [2]:- ... wrote a commentary, or rather introduction to the Data of Euclid . It is mainly taken up with a discussion of the question - what is meant by given? In fact Marinus was a great believer in mathematics, something which he shared with fellow late Neoplatonists . He said (see for example [1]):- I wish everything were mathematics.

Extractions: Marinus in his life of Proclus Proclus (412485 C.E.) was a poet, philosopher and scientist; he was one of the last official teachers of the Platonic Academy in Athens, before the teaching of philosophy was legally forbidden in 529 by edict of the Emperor Justinian. Besides his philosophical and scientific achievements, Proclus believed that the true philosopher should pay homage to the gods of all nations, becoming "a priest of the entire universe." Marinus of Neapolis was probably a Samaritan, but he may have been a Jew. He became a convert to the Greek way of life and joined the Academy in Athens where he was a pupil of Proclus who was head of the Academy. Marinus succeeded Proclus as Head of the Academy in 485. In his biography of his teacher, Marinusia stated that Proclus was inspired, and that when philosophizing his countenance shone with preternatural light. Last modified 17 March 2002

Extractions: The Democratic foundation established by the ancient Greeks Abstract: Our integrated project blends the subjects of math and history. Since two of our group members never bothered to show up these are the only two subjects we will be covering, with the two history majors focusing on religion and government respectively. The math portion will focus on famous Greek mathematicians. With the help of a special education major, we will alter the plan to cater to the needs of special needs students. I plan to use the week to explain how the ancient Greeks introduced a democratic form of government. This was a revolutionary form of rule in a world of dictators and tyrants. Throughout the week the class will learn about the origins of Greek democracy and its prominent figures. We will then compare and contrast the Greek form of democracy to the one used in our own government. We will also be discussing the possible reasons why democracy failed in Greece and if it seems possible for the United States to suffer the same fate. Names and Majors of the Team Members: Subjects Integrated: Objectives: Upon completion of this lesson, participating students will be able to note five key similarities between the ancient Greek democracy and the democracy of the United States.
Extractions: This hypertext version of Thomas de Quincey's Confessions of an English Opium Eater , which has been annotated by Marjie Bloy Ph.D., Senior Research Fellow, National University of Singapore, graciously has been shared with the Victorian Web by its composer, Dave Gross, and has been taken from his website indicates a link to material not in the original print version a but no further; how unmeaning a sound was it at that time! what solemn chords does it now strike upon my heart! what heartquaking vibrations of sad and happy remembrances! Reverting for a moment to these, I feel a mystic importance attached to the minutest circumstances connected with the place, and the time, and the man (if man he was), that first laid open to me the paradise of opiumeaters. It was a Sunday afternoon, wet and cheerless; and a duller spectacle this earth of ours has not to show than a rainy Sunday in London. My road homewards lay through Oxford Street; and near "the stately Pantheon ", (as Mr.
