Quote of the Week
“[Socrates’] distinction from his fellow citizens is not that he possesses any special truth from which the multitude is excluded, but that he remains always ready to endure the pathos of wonder and thereby avoid the dogmatism of mere opinion holders. In order to be able to compete with this dogmatism of doxazein, Plato proposed to prolong indefinitely the speechless wonder which is at the beginning and end of philosophy.”
