>literally invented asking smug leading questions
>was so insufferable a jury decided he deserved death when the punishment was just going to be a fine
>"i-i'm not saying i'm the wisest, guys, all i'm s-saying is the oracle said t-that and she knows everything but i'm n-not saying i'm wise"
>almost all of the dialogues attributed to him were just plato writing fanfiction where his dead friend repeats his ideas
>his actual philosophy was pretty much just "knowledge is good"

remind me again how this guy is a forefather of philosophy and not a fucking autist

Say that Socrates met Max Stirner- how would he try to counter him?

Hello /lit/,
I plan on writing a book denouncing the modern education system and describing what the ideal education system would look like.
Do you happen to know of any books that touch on this subject or perhaps books on the history of education?

Disprove the following: "All philosophy, beyond the level at which the Greeks discussed, is overall obsolete on a social level."

>The extant sources agree that Socrates was profoundly ugly, resembling a satyr more than a man—and resembling not at all the statues that turned up later in ancient times and now grace Internet sites and the covers of books. He had wide-set, bulging eyes that darted sideways and enabled him, like a crab, to see not only what was straight ahead, but what was beside him as well; a flat, upturned nose with flaring nostrils; and large fleshy lips like an ass. Socrates let his hair grow long, Spartan-style (even while Athens and Sparta were at war), and went about barefoot and unwashed, carrying a stick and looking arrogant. He didn’t change his clothes but efficiently wore in the daytime what he covered himself with at night. Something was peculiar about his gait as well, sometimes described as a swagger so intimidating that enemy soldiers kept their distance. He was impervious to the effects of alcohol and cold weather, but this made him an object of suspicion to his fellow soldiers on campaign.
What was his deal?

"By all means marry; if you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher."
