help with the greek language

Postby Voronwe » Thu Aug 26, 2004 11:01 am

I am looking for a translation for the Socrates quote

There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.

into how it would appear in ancient greek.

is this correct?

my concerns are these...

1. is this correct?
2. do the "stylized" commas and accent marks make sense? I like the way they look, but is that proper greek?
3. is this current greek, the greek socrates would have written in (well, plato rather ;p ) or both?

thanks in advance, I'm afraid my knowledge of the greek language does not match my love of greek philosophy!

Do you know where is this reference to---what work? I would be interested in finding out.

Second, there is another correlation to this; Erik von Kuenhelt-Leddihn writes that this is also the philosophy of the Catholic Church

"Man is rather stupid than wicked". Liberty or Equality , pg 189

For a further reference on von Kuenhelt-Leddihn
