The ambiguity and lack of reliability serves as the modern basis of criticism – that it is near impossible to know the real Socrates

Kent @ The Financial Philosopher

@mspy: I agree and will add to your thought. The "ambiguity and lack of reliability" of modern social communication (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, blogs, phone texting) makes it near impossible to know "the real" anyone or anything.

However, I will also add that a reasonably reliable source of "knowing" Socrates is the writings of Plato, who knew Socrates quite well.

Thanks for the comment...



All three cases are arguable - the divine is a significantly limited entity in the works of Plato and Aristotle, more conceptual than interpersonal or interventionist.
