Haven't been here in a while. The #covid-19 #lockdowns made me focus on seeking support and community in my immediate surroundings. Just joined Neenster too - @Chrystalleni@neenster.org. It's a curious feeling resuming here and diaspora. I wonder what's changed in the past year or so. Whether there's more momentum to the fediverse and which forms that might take.

hello! That sounds compellingly strong and interesting. I'm curious about your thesis topic
So in Plato's sense of the ideal city, the spirited (in the sense of strength/prone to anger/action/activity/executive/protective) work together with the reasonable, to benevolently rule over raw desire (the people). Less ideal are the cases where the θυμοειδές-spirited joins up with desire instead of reason. Stanford encyclopedia of philosophy is less helpful with this than I would have thought.
you mean if philosophers stand for reason, which group, then, stands for spirit and which for desire? I think 'the people' in broader sense stand for desire/appetitive/the libidinal. And the spirit comes up in a regulatory capacity towards the libidinal, so the executive power, the police in a sense.
