I've added an updated version of a Wikipedia article I wrote on the elechus, which I think is a serviceable starting place for the article (insofar as it is accurate and true, but incomplete). In WP it was awkwardly subsumed under Socratic method. A copyright question: does this need some reference to WP? At the time of writing it is entirely my own work, but perhaps this makes no difference. I'll investigate. Damien Storey 07:48, 21 January 2007 (CST)

Asked for category check simply because I wonder how many and which articles about ancient philosophy will be shared with the Classics Workgroup. Perhaps articles about jargon/concepts might be shared. --Larry Sanger 10:00, 17 March 2007 (CDT)

Is there a reason they wouldn't or shouldn't be shared? (I can't think of one.) I added Classics on the checklist so that maybe someone from there could give us such a reason, if there is one. Kevin M I Schutte 21:04, 8 April 2007 (CDT)
Another related worry: How many and which articles about philosophers will/should be shared with the History Workgroup. Kevin M I Schutte 21:11, 8 April 2007 (CDT)
