this is what you should really be concerned about.

Plato has very little worth reading. Aristotle should be mandatory, though.

Ah yes, let me go to a college so they can teach me how to think and give me a piece of paper at the end for being such a good boy, because that's what being intelligent is really about.

Unbelievably based.

Just started Apology. Am i just not getting him or was Socrates a smug asshole whose only trick was deconstructing reality until nothing is provable and going "guess you didn't really know anything, looks like i win again HMMMMMM"?

>> No.16854474

yes and no

>> No.16854494

Reading the Republic is not enough to say that you have read the Greek. It isn't even enough to say that you know anything about Plato.

>> No.16854503

Both are equally believable. Most of the students don't read a single book during the course of their undergraduate studies, they're forced to read memepapers written by joe nobody and only fractions of valuable works instead.

Switch it to the Alcibiades Major, anon

>> No.16854508

Why would I read the Greeks? The only useful ideas from the Greek are already part of the collective social consciousness. Plus they were wrong about nearly everything. So the only benefit in reading the Greeks in modern is to learn what isn't good philosophy. This is ironic because 4channers think the Greeks are an untapped source of knowledge. So you just end up looking like a Dunning-Kruger mouthbreather.

I've never read a work of philosophy where I went "gee I never thought of it like that before"

If you think that's what supposed to happen when you read philosophy then you're a lost cause.

>> No.16854544

According to the Greek pederasts whom you fellate, the peak of mount stupid is where they would fall. Doesn't Socrates "know nothing"?

>> No.16854553

I was able to come up with their philosophical frameworks by myself. I reject most because they are retarded like all philosophical concepts.

Yeah, and that makes him the most intelligent person on Earth like the Oracle said since he knows that he knows nothing, retard.

>> No.16854569

You sound like you don't read a lot.

>> No.16854575

Your sophistry is amateurish. Socrates knew that he knew nothing. Therefore he cannot be on mount stupid which is reserved for people like you who seem to believe that you have it all figured out.

>Plato has very little worth reading
>Aristotle should be mandatory

Name one (1) great philosophical theory you think is unique to Aristotle and I will point *exactly* to where you can find its antecedent in Plato. Aristotle is to be cherished for his broad and penetrating scientific interests.
>inb4 hylomorphism
Hylomorphism is invaluable for any materialist ontology, but materialism is a cancer that had its metastasis in Aristotle. Besides, hylomorphism is just a development of the idea posited in Timaeus 49-51.

>> No.16854632

Reading philosophy isn't reading. It's like having a 3 year old boy tell you girls don't have a floppy thing down there. No shit kid. Everyone knows that, but congratulations for discovering a basic fact of life. That's what philosophy is. Some incel describing basic, obvious, observable facts of life and Dunning-Kruger'ing himself and others into thinking he is intelligent.

>> No.16854641

You are the athenian that ignores that he doesn't know and thinks that he knows. The most ignorant of all ignorants.
