Links and Links and Links and Links

* An excellent page on Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit. The advertisement for the work boils Hegel down to basics quite nicely.

* Belgium inside the Netherlands inside Belgium inside the Netherlands. (ht)

* The Economics of Beatrix Potter's The Tale of Ginger and Pickles

* The SEP has an article on Impossible Worlds. I'm skeptical of some of the HoP implications suggested at the beginning; but if you admit a possible worlds formalism there are excellent reasons to admit an impossible worlds formalism.

* The "Chicago Boyz" blog is having a roundtable on Xenophon's Anabasis. Xenophon, against the advice of Socrates, joined the Ten Thousand, an army of mercenaries, to fight for Cyrus the Younger against his brother Artaxerxes II. They won a key battle at Cunaxa, but Cyrus was killed in the fight, leaving the Greek mercenaries stranded in hostile territory. Xenophon is usually overshadowed by Plato, but all of Xenophon's works (including the historical ones) are philosophical works, expressing his own brand of Socratism.

* Michael at "The Smithy" recently had a series of posts on the Theoremata Scoti:

Theoremata Scoti, Pars I
Theoremata Scoti, Pars II
Theoremata Scoti, Pars III A
Theoremata Scoti, Pars III B 1
Theoremata Scoti, Pars III B 2
Theoremata Scoti, Pars IV
Theoremata Scoti, Pars V

* Sherry's Hundred Hymns List was held up due to computer problems, but it now continues:

#33 Jesus Paid It All

#31 O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing
#30 Arise, My Soul, Arise
#29 Be Still, My Soul
#28 Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah
#27 Rock of Ages
#26 Beneath the Cross of Jesus
#25 Blessed Assurance
#24 In the Garden
#23 All Creatures of Our God and King
#22 All Hail the Power of Jesus' Name


* T. Ryan Gregory, Natural Selection: Essential Concepts and Common Misconceptions (ht)

* Leiter on myths about Nietzsche (ht)

* Speaking of the oddities of Belgian borders, meet the Vennbahn, a no-longer-used railroad running through Germany that by a still-functioning provision of the Treaty of Versailles is entirely in Belgium.

* Will Huysman has a list of post-1054 Orthodox saints who are on official Catholic calendars of saints.
