Recieved an email from "Eddie". But no response address:
My name is Eddie, I like philosophy very much but I am a beginner. Would you like to suggest some philosophical book(s) for me especially western philosophy.
Thanks for your help
"An Alice in Wonderland for the 90s ... a simply wonderful, irresistible book."This book developed through a story as "An Alice in Wonderland" to introduce history of western philosophy.

Thanks for your attention
Dear Eddie Lo,
Chinese edition of western philosophy books:
Recieved an email from "Shun Ma". I think it is useful to all ( I hope Shun Ma don't mind ):
i think that the death of socrates is probably not represenatative of democracy. for democracy is not simply the minoirty accpeting the decision of the majority. aristotle observes that the majority in the society must be less educated and less independent and clear in thinking. they would normally use their passion and their trust of somebody to be their ground of judgement, instead of judging thing rationally or according to their reasons. according, a society that simply following the decision of the majority would be very likely to produce totalitarianian leader (like the case in China. if you look at the Chinese history, you would find that almost every founder of dynasties had gained supported from majority of people. and that is what Mencius means tha mandate of heaven. the people based on their trust of the heroes of their own times, thus handed over their autonomy to the heroes and made the heroes their soverigns. as a result, every soverign (the emperor) became totalitarian, even sometimes they had benefited their people.) i personally favor aristotlean idea of democracy. that is the society is governed by laws which legislate by the social elites (for social elites are generally more educated and are having more rational perspective.) and the majority of people have right to elect the people who do legislation (therefore the majority can restrain the power of the leading group and avoid the emerging of totalitarianism). the most important thing is everyone in the society has to obey the laws, no matter what the majority think at one point of time (to avoid people making decision when their emotion have overwhelmed their reasons, like the case of the death of socrates). and we can see that the entire western democratic nations are now following this aristotlean democracy ( set up constitutions of the nation by elites leading groups and public election).
accordingly, i would think the death of socrates was the cost of misunderstanding democracy (and certainly a great philosophical lost). this is my personal opinion of the death of socrates. (i am by no mean to criticize your opinion, i just like to interflow some of my thought to other philo-philosophy)
thank you for your attention and i am very happy to talk philosophy with you.
nice to talk to you.
