Ten giant philosophy posters with big ideas presented simply.

NEW: Socrates

Hey Kickstarter friends,

I've added the first of five new posters from our brainstorming document. You'll be able to select Socrates when the project ends. If you want it in addition to another poster, just add $20 to your pledge ($30 international).

Thanks!

- Max

      I agree with @peter. The above quote hold more to the socratic method and Socrates search for a man who has more knowledge than him.

      Either way, it is amusingly characteristic of Socrates. He seems to delight in shredding other peoples' arguments only to innocently insist that he really isn't that smart and the other person should explain what the answer is, only to shred their arguments yet again.

      @Travis. i like that one too

    4. Creator Jason Englert on April 29, 2012

      @Travis; I would also prefer that quote.

      There are many variations of this quote attributed to him that are around the net. Which ones are truly documented...? I wish I knew, but of those variations this one is my favorite:

      "True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing."

      I would prefer this text over the above, but I am just 1 person. =)

      I mean it's not in Plato's dialogues. Plato never wrote that Socrates said it.

      @Daniella - Yeah Kickstarter folks are pretty good people.

      Omg this doc. Amazing.

    10. Creator Kim Nguyen on April 27, 2012

      @Chad, I saw it in the doc.

      That phrase is actually not in the dialogues.
