What did Socrates say or wrote?

Many many things.

Did Socrates write down things he said?

Not to my knowledge, and please correct me and let me know where to find his direct writings. Thanks. His great ideas were left by his students. Like Plato?

Sort of an excuse for those of us with plenty of ideas. These ideas are seldom formal study type things. For formal study to memorize rather than to discus with people the same intellectual level and above ourselves, yet with the joys of discussions, is rare to come across. I really miss my days in London throughout the 70s when I met such a wide range of people to mix with. Many whom I had found strange in ideas, in looks. But all interesting. Those days are gone and i am a little inclined to believe the possibility that humanity is approaching the end (million years perhaps) rather than a real progress. Perhaps not an end of physical existence but very much an end of individualism.

Strange isn’t it? The note one writes the more one realizes that the writings are just the top of the iceberg and therefore the amounts of misguidance possible by writings. But what is the alternative to sharing knowledge?

About Ed Simon

This is my user name as Editor of this blog. Some site visitors may already be acquainted with the different areas of my interest. I am uncertain how I should classify myself. I have lived studied and worked in Malaysia and in the UK for long periods. I have also travelled to many other countries for both work, pleasure, and just "wandering". I leave the postings to tell about my areas of work and interest, so as not to bore you with a lengthy (and probably embellished :-) recount of my triumphs and tribulations.
