Quote from: Cavebear on November 06, 2016, 01:49:21 AMSocrates was one of the Greek mystics who considered information "dangerous" to the masses. And he was basically a crazy. I do not consider him good for human thought. I prefer Eratosthenes.

Quote from: Eugeny Anatolievich on November 07, 2016, 05:42:14 PMMaybe, we'd better remember old Socrates, re-read his questions and try to answer them by our own way? What is love, friendship, courage, beauty, wisdom, truth etc.?
