We know what it means to imitate Jesus, but what does imitating Socrates entail?
Show Notes
In this episode we will be exploring Peterson's rule "Assume that the person you are Listening to might know something you don't." it's a lesson we should all take to heart, especially those (like myself) who are so inclined toward totalitarian certainty. While certainty is achievable, it is anything but easy. More appropriate should be our desire to understand other ideas, and how to entertain those ideas, without necessarily accepting them. In that no greater tool is at your possession than ART. We'll be exploring the poem "The Laws of God, the Laws of Men." Benjamin Franklin as a young man gave himself a daily assignment in his attempt toward moral perfection: To imitate Jesus and Socrates. We know what it means to imitate Jesus. But what does imitating socrates entail? This episode will explore that idea.
