    I am very much interested in this book and character One of the reasons why was he declared a NON PERSON, by Napoleon what s a non person Why was he condemned by the Pope Hermes Fabre, before approaching the verses attributed to Pythagoras, wrote some reflections on world poetry.the essence thereof He himself invented a new melodious form of poetry He got familiar with several Semitic languages I ve read some of his reflections and don t agree with his assertion that Cam es failed He wrote about the Christian Cabala, about music as a science and the language of the Hebrews restored.and provided a new interpretation of the book of Genesis I need to find On his biography I was surprised to find he had been initiated in Germany,and had had a 10 years sort of seclusion disconcerting by some He believed in reincarnation metempsychosis and had a strange death at the foot of his altar I ll be back on him Well, I m back.Someone said jokingly but very appropriately that Fabre was looking for the lost word la parole perdu.Very true From my French readings he lived the last yea...

    Interesting collection of maxims, some of which are divided mid sentence Perhaps this is proper grammar in ancient Greek Anyways, useful and beautiful A shame that humanity still has not mastered these.A few samples 7 Avoid as much as possible hating your friend for a slight fault.12 But above all things respect yourself.32 In no way neglect the health of your body.39 Do only that which will not hurt you, and think...

    I think it s a great work Some of the parts of the sections from other pythagoreans are quite patchy and a tad too religious The Golden verses are pretty great, it s kind of a how to guide for living a good and wise life You ll find some are similar to common sayings or christian preachings, they are probably things that people have been repeating to each other since language began.The best part for me is the symbols of pythagoras which are cryptic sayings that are alternately baffling, mad as a box of frogs, truly thought provoking and maybe even genuinely useful For example cut not fire with a sword departing from your house turn not back for the furies will be your attendantswalk in unfrequented pathseat not beansSacrifice and adore unshodEach saying has an explanation after it, which is usually quite wordy but tends to throw light onto even the most bizarre instruction these are by Iamblichus, though this edition doesn t really make this clear The main failing of this book is that it seems like something that was just grabbed when it went public domain and printed off with little care to properly format or explain what it is A better book in this regard is the Pythagorean Sourcebook by Guthrie, which I read after this, even though it still has pretty much the same golden verses That one is expensive but well worth it, symbols, some biographies, a nice essay, some various pythagorean fragments This one is stil...

    This is a very interesting book as Olivet uses the first part of the book to show his thoughts on poems, and ancient writings and how they relate to Pythagorean thinking, further to that how some poems have become much removed from the original intent of the Pythagorean verse He shows how Pythagoras, in his opinion, ...

    I don t have much context for this as far as I can tell, a lot of the material arguably consists of Neoplatonic shout outs to Pythagoras rather than truly Pythagorean writings Anyway, it all makes for fairly compelling reading, but the Golden Verses are a real standout.
