Socrates
#1
Just for the sake of talking about philosophy, rather than whatever else is going on, what do people think of Socrrates and all things Socratic-ish?

Which Socrates? Plato's, Xenophon's, or Aristophanes'?
Plato has him as the gadfly philosopher and a mouthpiece for his own philosophies.
Xenophon has him as a traditional moralist.
Aristophanes has him as a buffoonish sophist.

well i think Plato's Apology is perhaps one of the best works in the Western Canon in my opinion.  The Symposium is up there too, though I get weirded out by Aristophanes.

Without Socrates there is no Plato.  Without Plato there is no Catholic philosophy and thus Catholic theology.

A couple of  nibbles... anyone want to bite? Come on, in a philosophy part of a catholic forum surely there has to be a discussion of socrates (as plato represented him!  ::) )
