Description

At the Hill of the Muses there are prisons
Similar to a closed mind, an unexamined life that doesn’t lead to wisdom…

Athenian charges of impiety and corrupting the youth, surely, not Plato’s perception.
Aristotle reminds “educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all”
The Academy graduates turn their degrees upside down.

Polonius must has whispered, “this above all, to thine own self be true”
Yes of course, I will chose the poison over your “gods” because
the bars of this jail have no authority over my soul.
Faithful to the teachings, pass the cup of hemlock and I will drink
For the many philosophers that will walk the Plaka stones knowing…
“Knowing that true knowledge exists in knowing that you know
Nothing”
