Philosophy Wire: Virtue. A matter of action. Not of science/ education/ art!

Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2015-05-11]: According to Rousseau science makes you less virtuous. Education in general makes people more hypocritical, more meretricious, decorating with flowers the chains that hold them. The more you analyze virtue the less you practice it. ("Discourse on the Arts and Sciences". [1]) Athens went down in history as the city of philosophers, but Sparta as the city of the practice of virtue. People always like to talk about virtue and ethics. Not exercise them. Christ who dared to live with virtue was expelled from the educated of His era. The most glorious scientific era of ancient Greece ended with the killing of its greatest philosopher. Our modern era of “scientific truth” doubts the very existence of foundations in ethics. Seek a fisherman. Stop looking at him disparagingly. Look at him like a teacher. And learn.
