Plato, oh Plato.

September 17, 2009

I’m reading Plato’s Gorgias, and my initial impression of Socrates in this piece is that he’s a bit of a prick. Gorgias doesn’t come across much better, because he should be able to see Socrates coming from a mile off, but no, he’s letting himself be led down the primrose path, seemingly unaware of the charnel house at the end.
