Landy pointed out that in the Gorgias, a stretch of tortured logic leads Socrates to the curious conclusion that “if you want to harm a criminal, the best thing you can do is to make sure he escapes punishment.”
As for the parables in the Gospel of St. Mark, Landy rejects the popular belief that they are there to help Jesus make himself understood. Quite the contrary, they are designed to “keep outsiders out” and to bring those with advanced metaphoric interpretation skills “even further in,” Landy suggests…To get the most out of the text today, Landy said, readers “should try to talk and think in metaphors, just as Jesus is doing,” rather than look for hidden meanings.
This speaks directly to the summer readings, hey?
