PAGE 309 327 350 . 366 385 405 . 420 441 455 472 483 - 0 490 PREFACE THE higher ideas, my dear friend, can hardly be set forth except through the medium of examples every man seems to ltnow all things in a kind of dream, and then again to know nothing when he wakes. . . . But people seem to forget that somethings have sensible images, which may be easily shown when any one desires to exhibit any of them or explain them to an inquirer, without any trouble or argument while the greatest and noblest truths have no outward image of themselves visible to man which he who wishes to satisfy the longing soul of the inquirer can adapt to the eye of sense, and therefore we ought to practise ourselves in the idea of them for immaterial things, which are the highest and greatest, are shown only in thought and idea, and in no other way, and all that toe are saying is said for the sake of them. Then reflect . . . that the soul is in the very likeness of the divine, and immortal and intelligible and uniform and unchangeable and the body is in the, very likeness of the human, and mortal and unintelligible and multiform and dissoluble and changeable. And were we not saying long ago that the soul, when using the body as an instrument of perception, . . . is then dragged by the body into the region of the changeable, and wanders and is confused the world spins round her, and she is like a drunkard when under their influence. I Jowetts translation of Platos tateswan, vol. iii., pp 562, 571- viii PREFACE But when, returning unto herself, she reflects, then she passes into the realm of purity and eternity and ii linortality and unchangeableness, which are her kindred . . . then she ceases fro111 erring ways, and, being in conlnzunion with the unchanging, is unchanging. Jowetts translation of Platos Phaedo, vol. i., pp. 407, 408. LIBRI P E R S O N E Book II THERON A citize t of the Doric town of Selinous in Sicily. The father of Charmides...
