On the Fortune or the Virtue of Alexander. In The Roman and Greek Questions, Plutarch poses questions and offers a variety of answers, à la Aristotle’s Problemata. The Romans used to be very suspicious of rubbing down with oil, and even today they believe that nothing has been so much to blame for the enslavement and effeminacy of the Greeks as their gymnasia and wrestling-schols, which engender much listless idleness and waste of time in their cities, as well as pederasty and the ruin of the bodies of young.

Plutarch's Moralia, Том 2. Plutarch, Frank Cole Babbitt

Plutarch's Moralia, Том 2. Plutarch, Frank Cole Babbitt. Plutarch (Plutarchus), ca. 45–120 CE, was born at Chaeronea in Boeotia in central Greece, studied philosophy at Athens, and, after coming to Rome as a teacher in philosophy, was given consular rank by the emperor Trajan and a procuratorship in Greece by Hadrian. When I first received this volume of the Moralia from my local library and looked at the contents, I groaned a little, inwardly, because it sounded dull. Most of these "sayings" of famous.

Vol. IV) Plutarch, Moralia. p320 On the Fortune of the Romans. Plutarch's essay on the Fortune of the Romans, like the following essays, is very plainly an epideictic oration. Where and when it was delivered, or whether it was ever delivered at all, we have no means of ascertaining. The thesis that Fortune was responsible for the great Roman empire would hardly be pleasing to Romans, but Plutarch is careful to point out that the high character of many individual Romans also contributed to the Roman success. In fact the essay might well bear the double title of Fortune or Virtues,1 as does the essay on Alexander.

Plutarch (Plutarchus), ca. 45–120 CE, was born at Chaeronea in Boeotia in central Greece, studied philosophy at Athens, and, after coming to Rome as a teacher in philosophy, was given consular rank by the emperor Trajan and a procuratorship in Greece by Hadrian. He was married and the father of one daughter and four sons. He appears as a man of kindly character and independent thought, studious and learned.

Plutarch wrote on many subjects. Most popular have always been the 46 Parallel Lives, biographies planned to be ethical examples in pairs (in each pair, one Greek figure and one similar Roman), though the last four lives are single. All are invaluable sources of our knowledge of the lives and characters of Greek and Roman statesmen, soldiers and orators. Plutarch's many other varied extant works, about 60 in number, are known as Moralia or Moral Essays. They are of high literary value, besides being of great use to people interested in philosophy, ethics and religion.

The Loeb Classical Library edition of the Moralia is in fifteen volumes, volume XIII having two parts.

Excellent edition, perfect except for a bent (and re-straightened) flyleaf.

A fascinating glimpse into the past.

I originally purchased volume I to brush up on my meager Greek but discoved that my Greek, even with a parallel translation in English was no longer viable without a lot of associated study. Having the book in the house and near my nightstand proved a godsend. The English translation puts me to sleep quickly and the small size of the volume doesn't wake me up again when it falls either on the floor, bed or body. I am now up to volume IV and soon to purchase volume V of the complete set of XVI.
This book does have some value regarding its contents. A previous knowledge of the Classical world is a help for understanding but the notes go a long way in clearing up any confusion, assuming that you are able to read such fine print before going to bed.
Safer than sleeping pills.

This is a Loeb that needs some modern attention. The English is a bit dry and outdated, and the scholar who assembled this Loeb didn't put a lot of effort into supporting a very dense and obscure collection of Plutarch with the necessary historical and philological footnotes. As someone who was reading the Loeb (gasp) without an additional commentary on the texts, there were dozens if not hundreds of moments where a footnote would have served to clarify opaque summaries of the particular religious phenomena under Plutarch's lens. I realize that Loeb's are typically rich with this kind of assisting material, but the better volumes have at least a few footnotes for the sake of clarity.
