Virtuous life and happiness in Epictetus, Socrates & Stoicism
Kahveci, Hülya; Turan, Şeref Halil; Department of Philosophy (2015)
In this M.A. thesis, Epictetus’ philosophy about virtuous life and happiness will be investigated. His philosophy is shaped by the thoughts of Socrates and Stoicism, therefore, before his main thoughts Socrates’ and Stoic’s philosophy under the scope of happiness will be analyzed. Firstly, the focus will be on Socrates’ philosophy of happiness, but before that, in order to pull the reader out of the blurry thoughts about historical Socrates and Platonic Socrates dilemma, I will try to prove that Socrates ha...
Veritas observations of the gamma-ray binary LS I+61 303
Acciari, V. A.; et. al. (IOP Publishing, 2008-06-01)
LS I +61 303 is one of only a few high-mass X-ray binaries currently detected at high significance in very high energy gamma-rays. The system was observed over several orbital cycles ( between 2006 September and 2007 February) with the VERITAS array of imaging air Cerenkov telescopes. A signal of gamma-rays with energies above 300 GeV is found with a statistical significance of 8.4 standard deviations. The detected flux is measured to be strongly variable; the maximum flux is found during most orbital cycle...
