  1. Thanks for stopping by, Bill. The book that this is from is superb at explaining complicated philosophical ideas in the simplest terms possible — and with comics!


  2. Thanks for stopping by, Reaver. I’m reading that website on Plato right now and it’s got some great insights. Thanks for the suggestion!


  3. Sorry for the late reply to your comment, Pasquino — thanks for stopping by, and thanks for the link. That painting is indeed a very good portrayal of the Plato/Socrates allegory.
