The Intelligent Troglodyte's Guide to Plato's Republic
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

The Republic of Plato is one of the classic gateway texts into the study and practice of philosophy, and it is just the sort of book that has been able to arrest and redirect lives. How it has been able to do this, and whether or not it will be able to do this in your own case, is something you can only discover for yourself. The present guidebook aims to help a person get fairly deep, fairly quickly, into the project. It divides the dialogue into 96 sections and provides commentary on each section as well as questions for reflection and exploration. It is organized with a table of contents and is stitched together with a system of navigating bookmarks. Links to external sites such as the Perseus Classical Library are used throughout. This book is suitable for college courses or independent study.

OpenStax Astronomy Slide Presentations in pdf form
Conditions of Use:

The slideshows that go with OpenStax Astronomy are PowerPoint, which is great for editing and improving, but a bit awkward for instructors who need to load MS PowerPoint in order to present. I used the cc-by license to place them on Wikiversity.

I also invite others to collaborate on developing OpenStax materials on Wikiversity and/or Miraheze.

Paradox & Infinity
Conditions of Use:

What is a paradox? More importantly, what is infinity? These concepts can blow one's mind in the best way possible and they are the subject of this course at MIT. Offered up as part of that august institution's Open CourseWare initiative, this semester long course was first offered in spring 2013 by Professor Agustin Rayo. In short, the course "explores different kinds of infinity; the paradoxes of set theory; the reduction of arithmetic to logic˘ď‹ď_." On the site, visitors can download the syllabus, the course calendar, the readings, and look over the lecture slides. The Readings area contains some lovely pieces, including "The Paradoxes of Time Travel" and "The Eleatic Hangover Cure."
