This is the third in a series of five Thursday breakfast talks where Emeritus Prof Edwin Judge explores both the classical and biblical cultural traditions whose interaction have created the distinctive dynamic mix forming Western civilisation. The talk will be held on Thursday, 13 May.ï¿½
An ancient Greek magnate was advised to curb his ambition, otherwise he could easily overreach its rational limit, and such excessive success might provoke the gods to envy. Even if a person meant well by such excessive action, it only served to sharpen that personâs tragic doom. While the Israelite prophets also warned people not to âhold the law in contempt and judge the lawâ, there was nevertheless a possibility of blessing, and even a sinner might plead for Godâs mercy.
Emeritus Prof Judge of Macquarie University is one of the leading academic figures in Australia.
