Plato put his own spin on Socrates, so can we “update” what he did as not debate, but a humble search? A search for the truth btwn speaker and listener having give and take, NOT AS Plato wrote as a search of a winner and loser – debate, argument,
dialectic. Aristophanes, in “Clouds” adds to the picture of Socrates with contempt and ridicule, and today most recall Plato’s version of a dramatic suicide rather than the betrayal of the selfish Senators. Yes, this is reinterpretation. You like it?
