Polis-method: Looking for a partner

Postby bcdavasconcelos » Wed Jul 13, 2016 4:17 am

χαίρετε, ὦ φίλοι

ἐπειτά ἐγώ μετὰ τῆς μεθόδου πόλεως μανθάνω - πρό δύο μήνα ἀρχόν ἐγώγε - ζητέω ἄλλον ἄνθρωπον, ὅς ἐνταῦθα συμμίσγεσθαι ἐθέλοι.

Hello everyone!

Since I recently started working with the Polis Method (started about a month ago), I am looking for a partner who would like to work together and practice the dialogues (and expand them) over skype and maybe eventually exchange messages (skype, email, or whatever works best).

Kind regards to everyone,
Bernardo

P.s. this is my first post in greek, feedback is much appreciated!

I'd be happy to partner with you. My skype username is joel_eidsath, and my email is jeidsath@gmail.com. I don't have a book, but that can be remedied.

Maybe I just have a dirty mind, but I think that you probably don't want to search for a man to συμμίσγεσθαι. Here is how I might have expressed the above in Greek:

χρῶμαι γὰρ τῇ μεθόδῳ τῆς Ῥίκου Πόλεως ἄρξας πρὸ δύο σεληνῶν ἵνα μανθάνω Ἑλληνίζειν, ζητῶ οὖν ἐθέλοντα διαλεγέσθαι.
Joel Eidsath -- jeidsath@gmail.com

μὴ δ’ οὕτως ἀγαθός περ ἐὼν θεοείκελ’ Ἀχιλλεῦ
κλέπτε νόῳ, ἐπεὶ οὐ παρελεύσεαι οὐδέ με πείσεις.

Thank you, Joel! For the suggestion and offer to learn together and not necessarily to συμμίσγεσθαι ἐνταῦθα :lol:
I will write you an email and add you on skype :)

ὦ χαίρε φίλε Μάρκε!

ἔχω μὲν τὸ το῀ῦ 2015 βρεττανί γλώσσῃ εγώγε.

(unsure about βρεττανί γλώσσῃ. δέω λεξικός τῆς κοινῆς γλώσσης)

Have you been through the whole book?

σφοδρὰ φιλῶ καὶ εγώ τὴν τοῦ Χριστοφόρου φωνὴν!

τὸ βίβλιον καλός ἑστιν, αλλὰ πότε μὲν οὐ κατανοέω ἐγὼ τὴν ἐτυμότης τοῦ ἑλληνικοῦ λογοῦ εἰ δὲ περισκοπέω μὴ ἐν τῷ LSJ.

ἀπὸ Γαλλίας Χριστόφορός ἐστι. ἐγώ εἰμι ἀπὸ Ἀμερίκας. καὶ σύ? πόθεν εἶ σύ?

πόθεν εἰμί ἐγώ;
ἀπὸ δὴ Βραζιλία εἰμί ἐγώ.

Διδάσκαλος ὁ Χριστόφορός ἐστι. φιλόσοφος εἰμί ἐγώ: ζετέω γὰρ τὴν τοῦ Αριστοτέλους φιλοσοφίαν. Καὶ σύ; τί εἶ σύ;

καλός τὸ ἔργον σοῦ ἐστιν. ἀλλά χαλεπός ἤ ῥάδιος ἐστιν τὸ ἔργον; τι λέγεις σύ περι τούτο;

ναί, μάλλιστα τὰ ἠθικά.
τὸ πολιτικόν ἐστίν τὰ ἔργα πάντα τῆς πόλεως. ὁ ἄνθρωπος δεῖ ἀλλήλοις καὶ οὐ δύνατον ἐστιν μόνον βίοι.

τί λέγω ἐγὼ περὶ τούτου? καλὸν μὲν ἡ ἐργασία μου, δύσκολον δέ, ὥσπερ ἡ Ἑλληνικὴ γλῶσσα. :lol:

καλῶς εἶπες, ὦ ἄριστε φιλόσοφε. ἀλλήλων γὰρ δέονται οἱ ἄνθρωποι. κατὰ δὲ μόνας μηδεὶς βιοτεύοι ἄν εἰ μὴ θεὸς μόνος. μόνοι γὰρ οἱ θεοὶ φύσει ἄπολείς εἰσι καὶ τὰ θηρία.

ἄλλο οὖν ἐρώτημά σοι δίδωμι. κατά σε, διὰ τί ὁ Ῥίκω ὀνομάζει τὸ βιβλίον τὸ «Πόλις?»
