Guest post from Socrates

Hey everybody! Cmere a minute.
I’d like to just give you my bio up top. I’m the first of the three great Greeks when it comes to the love of wisdom. I taught Plato, and then Plato taught Aristotle.
As the first in this triumvirate of philosophers – and excuse the use of a later Latinate signifier to describe the three of us – you could say with some qualification that the entire tradition of Western thought originates with me.
Introductions out of the way, I have something I want to be clear about. It sums up my beliefs system, my mode of thought, my methodologies. My entire opus can be summed up – all issues reconciled in the dialectical style – by letting you in on this little nugget of wisdom I picked up on the way to the agora.
