Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Focus on the primary text

Peter Adamson is a Professor of Philosophy at the LMU in Munich and King's College London.

Here's what he had to say.

A while ago I had the idea to suggest some guidelines encapsulating what I see as good practice in studying the history of philosophy. With any luck, these rules are exemplified, not routinely violated, by the podcast itself. These are not really “rules” of course, only suggestions of best practice based on my own limited experience. I would love to hear other ideas and have further discussion here on the website.

The “rules” were posted on an extremely irregular basis over a couple of years, and I eventually got up to 20.

I'm not going to quote the explanations, but I do think the rules are good. So each rule gets a Quotes & Thinkums entry.

Focus on the primary text, not secondary literature.
