Philosophy and Religious Studies Roundtable: The Paradox of Socrates
Philosophy and Religious Studies Roundtable
Please join us for an open discussion on:
The Paradox of Socrates
Socrates embraced the role of “gadfly”—questioning his fellow Athenians and refusing to quit philosophizing even under threat of execution. He is usually embraced as a hero and intellectual martyr: he died defending the importance of self-examination! But let’s face it: Socrates’ method can be really annoying and frustrating, too! Is he a hero and role model? Or is he the Ancient Greek version of an internet troll?
Led by Matthew Pianalto, Professor of Philosophy, EKU Department of History, Philosophy, and Religious Studies
Roundtable discussions are open to all EKU students, faculty, and staff.
