pro-system vs. pro-nature

I bet some of you guys might have read the Unabomber's Manifesto. (Well, it's availible on the web. just google it.)
I tried to read it several times but I just secceded to read it from cover to cover only yesterday(I had tons of other things to read before).

hirriens

I'm assuming this word is a misprint in Harrius, because it's not in my dictionary, nor in words.exe. Here is its context:
'age vero, puer, audi verba mea,' inquit hirriens. (The fellow speaking is is in a somewhat excited state.)
I'm assuming it's a present participle of either 3rd-i or 4th conjugation. Or it could be horrens, (bristling) but that would require 2 spelling mistakes in the same word. Does anyone have any ideas?

just wondering

i just started wheelock and am pleased with my comprehension, even if it is just the first chapter.
my question is what the suffix tum means. if it is a version of first person singular or if it will be clarified later or maybe i am just missing something. it is not a big deal but maybe an informed person could clear it up for me
thanks, nathan

NH Composition 24.5 (Syncopation)

I'm working through N&H's composition book and I have a question about exercise 24, #5.

The soldiers having been captured gave up their arms.


N&H give the solution:

Capti milites arma tradidere.


Is this a typo or an alternate form for "tradiderunt"?

Final exam question

If, as Plato says, justice is the knowledge of what is (supposed to be), and justice is also described as the harmony of the universe, then the knowledge of what is(supposed to be) is the knowledge of harmony. Write a short paper in which you explore the relationship you understand Plato to be drawing between knowledge, harmony, justice, the whole and what is supposed to be.

Any ideas? (Please)

final exam question please help

Okay the question is: The republic displays a recurring tension one might even say a contradiction between the city(the empirical, changeable world) and philosophy (the pusuit or love of truth which is enduring). Write a short essay in which you explore how this tension betweeb the empirical and the ideal informs the entire tradition of political philosophy.

Any ideas?
