bits of it, but it was a few days ago and all I remember is something about a pile of books and teaching and learning. Sounds like my life.

yes, I had another listen and I understood about 85% I think. Impoverished philosopher, spent all his money on books, didn't talk much. Into teaching and learning. Liked Aristotle.

thankyou tuchfrau - most helpful.

you are spot-on, only missing a bit at the beginning about how thin he was (i think there is a word something like "hollow", but not quite). cos he can't afford to eat, you know. . .*sniffs pitifully*

Tuchfrau said...

Yes, I thought so. Didn't realise you wanted a full translation. ;0)
