Western Heritage Lecture 8: Introducing Socrates

socratesI needed to devote the first 22 or so minutes of class to “how to write a liberal arts essay,” so the actual lecture on Socrates is very short.  My apologies.  You might want to skip ahead 20 or so minutes into the lecture.

Also, a major caveat.  During the lecture, I claimed that Socrates is regarded by some Eastern Orthodox as a saint.  I WAS WRONG!  It turns out that that several philosophers and humanists in the Western tradition have thought he was a saint, but no actual church body has ever declared such a thing.  So, my apologies for the confusion regarding this.

Regardless, here’s hoping you enjoy!
