Aye, I was never the best at deck construction, usually because you need to keep in the Meta and a lot of the decks that are top tiering just bore me. However that being said I'm having a lot of fun with White Blue Heroic in my standard.



Commander has to be my favourite format, I'm currently running a Krenko commander deck that's wrecking face, building a lazav one too because everyones giving out about getting shrekity shrekt by Goblins

If I built an EDH deck, it would be based on the Blue Unhinged legend Richard Garfield, Ph.D. He's hilarious. Run a variety of things in Standard (currently tinkering with versions of Ensoul Artifact, as well as occasionally playing Abzan things). Modern I've got a cheap U/R burn deck just to play w/ friends, and fuck playing Legacy.

Counterspells and Genesis Hydra.



Also ever play commander?

IMHO, a control deck usually will find a way to thrash the big green deck in a large multiplayer game. Jus' saying. In competitive 1v1, at least recently, I've never seen a U/G deck do hugely well on the ramp + counterspells plan at a major event. Not sure why, honestly, because it does seem decent. Big problem is a lot of the time players tap out for that 12=X Genesis Hydra, and run straight into a boardwipe. Don't play a ton of commander, although bits and pieces.

Playing blue/green devotion mana ramping into massive beaters/board presence only taught me that I'm a dick.

Orzhov however taught me about gambling, and infect taught me about what happens when you act like a cunt

I'm not sure if it was stated in the Republic, but reflected on his general view on women in other works. He was very role-specific in his ideas, and that everyone should serve the state as best they can. Meaning brave people would be best served as Guardians, intelligent people in Trade or government and so on. He also mentions somewhere that a populous state was a strong one, and men could breed many children at the same time while a woman was only able to carry one. His statement that women and men in Guardian class should not have any connections to one another (children's identity kept anonymous and no marriage), also reflects his views that breeding was of the essence, and it makes little sense to toss women into war when they have the ability to bear children.

Plato may have been a very bright individual for his time, but like you said cultural prejudice impedes his ability to be relevant today. Rationalism as opposed to today's society's empirist methods, class society, slave justifications and other concerns he addressed makes him heavily irrelevant for today's views, other than being a pioneer who inspired other thinkers.

That said, this was a long time ago, and records have been lost. I also haven't read much of his works given his irrelevancy today compared to more modern philosophers like Hume, Kant and Smith, but I'd take it with a grain of salt that he'd choose to completely derail everything Greek culture stood for when it influenced the thoughts of pretty much everyone else from that area. It's also uncertain whether or not they were simply records he kept of Socrates, as he uses him as the "protagonist" of many of his works.
User avatar #99 - splinfinity (02/20/2015) [-]
I suspect that you're getting some material from one of his final works, the Laws. I'm not very familiar with that one, but as I understand it he wrote it as a retort to those who found the idealization in Republic impractical, which is why it's a more practical setting-up of a city. I would see gender-roles more firmly established in Aristotle's work than in Plato's, in large part because Aristotle does indeed tend to be more conventional than Plato in his politics (see The Athenian Constitution). While Plato figured that it would be more difficult for women to have the sort of virtuous character required to be a guardian of the city, if they met that requirement, they weren't excluded. Also, for the record, it wasn't "brave" people who served as guardians; it was the best. Intelligence, bravery, wisdom, moral character, etc. all were factors.

With regards to Socrates, a good amount of Plato's thought is probably derivative. The Apology gives us an idea of how Socrates thought and taught, but more importantly, we also have writings from Xenophon, another of Socrates' students, which speak at length about Socrates. Further, we can have some image of him from Crito and Symposium, although for this discussion I consider Symposium to be largely irrelevant, since the most interesting information within it about the historical Socrates is predominantly concerning his relationship with Alcibiades.

I'm just thinking of describing the table in terms of function rather than appearance...

What makes table1 and table2 both tables despite being very different? The fact that we used them as a table. I like to think of all the drunk college students who used the hallway floor as a bed. There are no commonalities shared by the filthy carpet and a bed, yet both served the purpose of a bed. Since they served the bed function, they acquired the role of a bed. Does this disagree at all with the theory of forms? Also, does the theory of forms disagree with the concept of a single object serving the role of multiple forms? That carpet being both an imitation of <carpet> and <bed>?
User avatar #73 - splinfinity (02/20/2015) [-]
That's one of the criticisms often leveled at Platonism; what role does "function" partake in how we come to recognize objects. I suggest that the carpet/bed distinction doesn't stand as a counterargument because they are still the type of object which they are, even if we use them for an unintended function. However, it could (and has been) argued that part of how we define an object is by what function it serves. So, in this case, table1[/small] and table2[/small] DO have something in common; they both serve the same function. It's difficult to imagine a table which doesn't fulfill the function of a table.

Another of the major arguments against the theory of Forms (which Plato himself presents in the Parmenides) is whether or not there are "ideal" Forms of distasteful things like garbage, or feces.

That's actually one of the reasons I really admire Plato as a philosopher. Although Aristotle probably got more correct about how things are, Plato was his own strongest critic. Most arguments against Platonism originally derive from his own work.
