needs a "I drank what?" tag
petep
why in god's name would it need that, you oaf

the 'needs an X tag' joke is like the 'your X wants Y, Y usually being steak' on Fark.

Other than that, kind of interesting. Now I'm going to have to read Socrates and see if he came up with something after the idea of democracy or if I'll just have this cliffhanger ending.

**why in god's name would it need that?**

Socrates was put to death by drinking a nice tall glass of hemlock. Read it, it's powerful.

petep
so how about a hemlock tag you fucking doofus

kiint
what are those things called when you read them forward and backward and its the same? oh now I cant remember, some long word, think it starts with a P and rhymes with IGNORANT ASSHOLE

to downrate this video is to kill socrates !!
Comeuppance
The subject being Socrates does not out-weigh my hate for Powerpoint movies.
Fuck slideshows.

This is pretty much like two paragraphs of text and three minutes long.

Sputum
Aw crap, am I a communist now?

Yes comrade!

We realize that a gov't consisting of nothing but Philosophy majors would tend to mightily suck.

i guess that's a good picture to represent "the most urgent human questions"

I was thinking the same thing; that photo was incongruous with the rest of the presentation.

Aside from that one photo, I thought that this clip was extremely well-presented, interesting, and thought-provoking. Thanks for showing this to us!

socrates was never born, was plato's device

in euthyphro was revealed to represent common opinion

which, incapable of sustaining the pursuit of knowledge

later is condemned, and felled by its own hand.

this video is just silliness.

I feel like my brain has just been attacked by some kind of supermutant haiku melange hopped up on animal growth hormone while Enya plays calmly in the background.

dorje
hell yes

Did ancient Greece even have freedom of speech?
