"It takes courage to journey into the unknown".
The words of Socrates may not be necessarily the easiest to understand, in fact he is often misinterpreted and misunderstood. In any case, I would argue that everyone acknowledges his existence as they do so may other historical figures, and do so particularly for his words. Some doubt Socrates actual existence, since in actuality he is merely a character within most of Plato's writings, but I would say that doesn't deny ever his existence even if they are correct. Albert Loan, our facilitator, has strong sharing attachments with this Socrates character, especially in the areas of virtue and teaching, or so I am left to believe (and believe I will). Nonetheless, Bert proves a capable and optimal facilitator when it comes to texts as complex as these; it is also important to know that classical studies does not only refer to those writings of the great philosophers known as Aristotle, Plato, and Socorates, but considerably many more.
