The Unexamined Life is not worth living

The Unexamined Life is not worth living


Here’s how Socrates became the wisest man in Athens

The essence of Socrates’ wisdom might surprise you…

When Socrates was said to be the wisest man in Athens, Socrates was said to have concluded that he was only wiser than others because he was the only person who recognized his own ignorance.

“I know that I know nothing”

Seeking to imply that the realization of our ignorance is the first step in philosophizing.

Acceptance of ignorance combined with relentless curiosity, questioning and conversation is the perfect foundation for lifelong learning.
