Well, the court was going to let him go with a soft punnishment, but he was all like you ****** can't even sentence me properly, so his death is actually a penalty for contempt of the court.
User avatar #78 to #38 - rapsuskiller (06/20/2013) [-]
And he even had the chance of an easy escape (his disciples could give money to the guards to let him leave prision), but noooooo, Socrates, that badass ********** , said: " **** yo escapes, ***** , imma do this so evryone know I was sentenced unfairly". A truly great man.

He was in the Athenian army. Dude was a badass in many a field, yo.
User avatar #46 to #40 - Bion ONLINE (06/20/2013) [-]
He was actually over-weight and ugly (for the time period), but artists of the time didn't like painting people like that. So they painted them the way they figured they should look. Same with "The Virgin Mary". She wasn't a very attractive woman, compared to the paintings and sculptures of her.

Philo = Love
Sophia = Wisdom
Philosophy is getting way off track these days, they need to go back to wisdom things. Like justice and the individual.
#49 to #48 - anon (06/20/2013) [-]
Have you formally studied philosophy at all? I have a BA in Philosophy, coupled with a minor in ancient history.
Philosophy is on track, and can provide you a clear and clean way, provided you look within yourself.
What most people think is "philosophy" now-a-days is not philosophy, but rather a faux imitation that does not better one's self in any way.
Real philosophy challenges the mind, and hopefully, through a dialectical process within yourself, and with others, you may gain a better understanding as well as new perspective, which is amazingly valuable in an increasingly polarized world.

Shut up and give me french fries with my burger.
#51 to #50 - anon (06/20/2013) [-]
Considering that I am a dual major, as well, I do not think i will ever be employed at a fast food chain, or a similar local.
I am certified to teach history for secondary (high school), although I am currently working on my MA in philosophy, i'm going to focus in ancient Greek.
If i succeed, i will then obtain and define my Ph. D (which by the way, is redundant, as a Ph. stands for "doctorate of philosophy in ____", so i will have a Doctorate of philosophy in philosophy).
I will then teach at university level.
Please get off of the internet and do something productive.
User avatar #52 to #51 - thelastamerican (06/20/2013) [-]
Bro. You're the one who's going to get a Ph.D in philosophy. I don't think you get to tell me to do something productive. I'm in college to be a teacher too by the way.
#54 to #52 - anon (06/20/2013) [-]
Not sure if troll; please explain the difference of value in yourself learning to become a teacher, and well, teaching, and myself teaching philosophy to others.

Hey, if you can buy pay for lunch it's not a waste of time, but I've never known anyone who studied philosophy to have ever gotten a job in the field that paid beans.
#57 to #56 - anon (06/20/2013) [-]
Although while I cannot cite this statistic, as of 2010, 90% to 95% of all philosophy majors were employed.
(However, the level of pay or place of employment is not included, it is assumed it is generally enough to "live well".)
(Also, the vast majority of philosophy majors are dual majors. The study of philosophy, for many, is a hobby.)
#63 to #57 - anon (06/20/2013) [-]
That means there's a 10% unemployment rate among philosophy majors?

That is pretty steep.

And how many of these philosophy majors are employed at universities, teaching other philosophy majors about philosophy?

here's a sad realization for the future of america: when you apply humanitarian or at least, human sympathizing ethics to our political issues, in most every case, there is no way to choose, either choice has a large negative impact on some demographic of america, yet every person i've met when discussing elections believes that progress will be made...even if the decisions were up to the president, most likely 50% of the time you are going to be disappointed or pissed off. and this is why obama is a ****** president, he thinks the right way (imo and to liberals), but the fact is, none of the things he proposes will likely come about the way people want. so really, all elections are, is choosing the lesser evil....and while obama will never accomplish the majority of his promises, he's sure a lot less evil that mitt.

We could just trash the two-party system and elections wouldn't consist of two monkeys flinging their own fecal matter at each other.
#24 to #9 - anon (06/20/2013) [-]
Do you really think out delegates would be willing to implement the necessary changes for that to happen (a tiered voting system, numbering candidates from first choice down, and removal of the electoral college).
User avatar #89 to #24 - jajathezombie (06/20/2013) [-]
Nope, which is why we need a revolution. Tear down the old system and build a new one from the ground up.
User avatar #13 to #7 - nicolbolas (06/20/2013) [-]
Our system is supposed to be set up in a way so that the majority guesses and checks what the moral or right thing to do is. While a majority will dominate for a while, if a minority gets a foothold and is supported by any sort of logic they can find support eventually becoming a majority. (we see this with gay rights) Once certain rights are secured, they cannot be taken away, some restrictions may be placed but not eliminated.

Generations are becoming more open minded, making it easier to gain their support. With older generations fading away, certain values are being lost and others are being obtained.

Other things in our society can be found unfair due to things such as race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. things like the death penalty, abortion, and physician assisted suicide and euthanasia. Because there is a possibility for abuse, and history has shown abuse of all of these things, many are skeptical about allowing such things to enter the realms or law because there are those who do wish to do harm.

People will argue about religion and how that is the basis for their beliefs and it may set up how they feel but religion itself does not give sufficient defense of why one should or should not do something in most cases. Most religious arguments that are in politics do not even scratch the surface because the issue is always deeper than what the typical person thinks of.

Legal Abortion: No negative impact on those who hate it, ability to choose whether or not to have a child for those who support it.

gay Rights: No negative impact on those who hate it, ability for those who find their own gender attractive to have the same rights as heterosexual couples.

Increased Taxation of Rich: Slightly more money out of the pockets of the rich (who can already live comfortably), ability for those who struggle to pay for food, housing, education, and health care to actually be able to live their lives and better themselves.

Immigration Reform: The 10 million illegal immigrants in the US who are already here whether you want them or not can actually start paying taxes and get their children educated. Harm caused? Employers have to treat them like people.

Gun Reform: Look at gun deaths in England vs US. Depending on the extent of regulation, some hunters might not be able to use AK-47's.
Health Care Reform: Look at any other first world western country.

that's not what i meant, by all means these are worthy pursuits, but i'm saying with the current status of congress and the divide on social issues across america, these things will most likely not happen soon, maybe not even ever for some
#23 to #19 - anon (06/20/2013) [-]
Oh ok, your wording confused me some, specifically the line "There is no way to choose, either choice has a large negative impact on some demographic of America."
I guess you meant who is elected? I thought you meant any big legal issues.
User avatar #32 to #23 - gobnick (06/20/2013) [-]
well what i meant by that phrasing was conservatives throw a bitchfit and if they get their way the only people it really matters to get hurt, there is no real winning, cause they'll just become even bigger stubborn pains in the ass

That is actually the dying scene of Socrates,and that glass includes poison hemlock.
User avatar #87 to #45 - AreyouSerious (06/20/2013) [-]
Is that Socrates basically saying "Do you even lift?"
User avatar #30 - toonlinktwentytwo (06/20/2013) [-]
its kinda funny because he is actually being forced to commit suicide in this painting
#76 to #30 - anon (06/20/2013) [-]
not forced, he could have escaped but he decided not to make the point that noone is above the laws, not even socrates; he died because it was his decision, he was not forced
User avatar #91 to #76 - infamously (06/20/2013) [-]
But if he believed none were above the laws, he couldn't escape therefor he was forced!
User avatar #92 to #91 - toonlinktwentytwo (06/20/2013) [-]
