Episode 26. History of Philosophy: Socrates Part 2

In this final cast of the year we invite Socrates to the party and he promptly brings us all down by asking “is this really the good life?”. While we are all getting rather excited over the prospect of the Christmas festivities Socrates wanders up and asks us whether our new Playstation and those humerous socks that our mum gave us will actually satisfy us in any meaningful way. As we pour another refreshing glass of our favourite tipple Socrates pops up and challenges us as to whether this will truly fulfil our desires and whether we will eventually need twice as much next time to remain equally satisfied. In an act of petty revenge we counter by bringing up that time Socrates hung out with the so called “30 Tyrants”. Yeah, not so smug now are we Socrates? Never invite philosophers to a party…
