    Plato's Self-Corrective Development of the Concepts of Soul, Forms, and Immortality in Three Arguments of the Phaedo.Martha C. Beck - 1999 - E. Mellen Press.
    This study argues both that the proofs are ultimately unconvincing and that Plato was aware of the problems. The Phaedo is shown as a truly dialectical philosophical conversation about the immortality of the soul.

  2. The Veneer of Barbarism.Martha C. Beck - 2018 - Proceedings of the XXIII World Congress of Philosophy 51:13-23.
    This paper tries to show that the insights of Ancient Greek wisdom are still relevant today and can provide guidance, as we move toward what seems to be a historically unique, complex network of interrelationships between human beings all over the world and between human society and the natural world. The paper focuses on only two of the deities of the Olympian pantheon: Aphrodite, goddess of beauty and Ares, god of war, the extreme attraction they feel toward each other, and (...)

    Plato’s Dialogues: Creating Friendship Bonds for 2400 Years.Martha C. Beck - 2018 - Dialogue and Universalism 28 (2):99-118.
    This paper is about: a) the model of friendship bonds Plato presents to us through his character, Socrates; b) the kinds of friendship bonds Plato tried to create with his students and wanted his students to create when they returned home; c) the friendship bonds lovers of Plato’s dialogues have created with each other for 2400 years; and d) the bonds that those who want to imitate Socrates should create with all of their fellowcitizens. Such bonds are critical for sustaining (...)

    Systems Thinking and Universal Dialogue: The Creation of a Noosphere in Today’s Era of Globalization.Martha C. Beck - 2013 - Dialogue and Universalism 23 (3):123-136.
    This paper summarizes Ervin Laszlo’s worldview in The Systems View of the World: A Holistic Vision for Our Time.1 Laszlo claims that current discoveries in the sciences have led to a different model of the physical world, human nature, and human culture. Instead of the models formulated during the Enlightenment, according Systems thinkers “systems interact with systems and collaboratively form suprasystems”. This view has led to a reexamination of: 1) each academic discipline; 2) the relationship between disciplines; 3) the nature (...)

    Neuroscience, Ancient Wisdom and the ISUD.Martha C. Beck - 2017 - Dialogue and Universalism 27 (3):173-187.
    This paper links the claims of neuroscientist Antonio Damasio to the civilization of the Ancient Greeks. Although Damasio’s book, Looking for Spinoza: Joy, Sorrow and the Feeling Brain, makes the argument for the connection between Spinoza and neuroscience, he says that he prefers Aristotle’s model of human flourishing, but he does not describe Aristotle’s model. I explain Aristotle’s model and connect neuroscience to Aristotle and to the educational system underlying Greek mythology, Hesiod, Homer, tragedy and other aspects of Greek culture, (...)

    Conservative Women.Martha C. Beck - 2019 - Dialogue and Universalism 29 (3):71-91.
    In response to the rise of conservative women, the author engaged in a long and meaningful Socratic dialogue with two self-identified conservative women. The paper describes the conversation, then analyzes it according to various political trends, Jungian and other psychological theories, the author’s dialectical teaching methodology, the value of a traditional liberal arts education and the failure of the intellectual elite in the past 50 years to create and sustain meaningful friendships with fellow citizens from all social sectors and educational (...)

    “All Human Beings, by Nature, Seek Understanding.” Creating a Global Noosphere in Today’s Era of Globalization.Martha Catherine Beck - 2015 - Dialogue and Universalism 25 (1):148-161.
    This paper describes many connections between the wisdom literature of the Ancient Greeks and the work of contemporary scholars, intellectuals and professionals in many fields. Whether or not they use the word nous to refer to the highest power of the human soul, I show that their views converge on the existence of such a power. The paper begins with a brief summary of Greek educational texts, including Greek mythology, Homer, tragedy, and Plato’s dialogues, showing that they are designed to (...)
