Φιλόλογος

 

Philologos (mas. noun): “student, scholar.”

 

From the conjunction of philos [a friend]

and logos [word, idea, reason];

 

Philologoi are “fond of words, i.e., talkative, argumentative, learned, philological.”

Strong’s Greek Concordance.

 

It was said of Socrates, that he was a philologus—one fond of words, talkative, keen of speaking (Phaedrus 236e).  According to Aristotle, it is one who is fond of dialectic or of philosophical argument, a lover of learning and literature, or one who is literary (Rhetoric 1398b14).  For Zeno, the philologoi are lovers of reason; they are students and scholars, learned in conversation, and studious of words (Stoic.1.67).

 Liddell Lexicon.

 

 

Founded in the spring of 2012, Philologoi: The Belmont University Undergraduate Journal of Philosophy is a student-run scholarly journal that is deeply rooted in the history of philosophy and whose mission is to provide an engaging and reflective forum for showcasing exceptional work from undergraduates world-wide—particularly that which explores the idea of philosophy as a way of life.
