Just how ironic was Socrates? He sounds like a sarcastic twat to me?

  1. sarcastic twat? ha-ha. good one, but just curious, since when were twats sarcastic? giggle. I was not very fond of Socrates, much like his co-philosopher buddies or any person in the marketplace haha. Hurray for hemlock, huh?

  2. Maybe somewhat, but he is one of the earliest ones we know about. Sarcasm is often ironic, also.
    I find it ironic that Yahoo doesn’t censor British slang for female private parts.

  3. In ancient Greece irony was considered very clever. In England, we have a taste for it, but not as much as the Greeks. In America, they don’t get it at all (which is why our answers keep getting deleted).

  4. Oh yes, remember when he was on that top 100 greatest philosophers show? And he said that he thought Nietzsche’s interpretation of tragedy as an affirmation of life was a really, really, really brilliant idea that wasn’t in any way written by somebody with the I.Q. of a Bratwurst.
    What a git eh?

  5. personally i believe that his ideas were rather clever… his main ideological school of thought was that
    “true morals and values lead to pure wisdom, and pure wisdom brings joy…”
    i do believe that is true to a certain extent…
