Tonight, I was doing a crossword that had a clue related to Zeno.
As I’ve noted before, I went to a liberal arts school and in fact spent a semester attending a class on philosophy (I’m not sure if “studying” is really the right word… (If a student attends a philosophy class but doesn’t hear the professor, did he give a lecture?))
Anyway, I was at a loss at remembering the details of Zeno’s philosophy. Annoyingly, I did remember that zeno had significant maritime interests – he had his home on the sea and had built significant moorings for his ocean-going vessel, and he also had a second residence on a nearby lake, also with a personal boat moored there.
This was rare, rare enough that Zeno was known for his maritime holdings rather than his philosophical contributions.
