While some of the translation such as “weeping mode” seems like the wrong wording for a book such as this, it is still beautifully worded.

Summary. If Fortune cannot bring happiness, how can it be found. This is the theme dominating the discussion in Book g less daunted than before, Boethius tells Philosophy he is ready for the stronger "cures" she promised.

Philosophy replies that, having seen the spurious pleasures brought by Fortune, it is time to contemplate true happiness. The book called 'The Consolation of Philosophy' was throughout the Middle Ages, and down to the beginnings of the modern epoch in the sixteenth century, the scholar's familiar companion.

Few books have exercised a wider influence in their time. The book continued to be widely admired during the Renaissance and long after, with the English historian Edward Gibbon describing it as a “golden volume.” The Consolation of Philosophy was translated many times into English, including by such notables as Chaucer and Queen Elizabeth I.

THE CONSOLATION OF PHILOSOPHYEDITORIAL NOTE THE incompatibility of the sufferings of good men, the impunity and success of bad men, with the government of the world by a good God, has been a subject of thought among men ever since religion and abstract questions have occupied the thoughts of mankind.

The book closes with a poetic meditation on the "harmony" that persists in the world despite continual change. Analysis The "Wheel of Fortune" image used in this book is not original to Boethius, though he is often credited with (or blamed for) its prevalence in medieval art and literature.

The Consolation of Philosophy stands, by its note of fatalism and its affinities with the Christian doctrine of humility, midway between the pagan philosophy of Seneca the Younger and the later Christian philosophy of consolation represented by Thomas à Kempis.

The book is heavily influenced by Plato and his dialogues (as was Boethius himself). Boethius composed the Consolatio Philosophiae in the sixth century AD whilst awaiting death under torture.

The circumstances of composition, the heroic demeanor of the author, and the 'Menippean' texture have combined to exercise a fascination over students of philosophy and of /5(15).
