August 27, 2014 Section 13 G. 1

Due to the regrettable lack of preparedness, our group was not able to discuss the reading; however, we did discuss explosions on campus, we introduced ourselves to one another, and we got acquainted with one another. All in all, though the classwork had not been completed we were able to come together and discuss life and problems with the universities alert system.

    DQ: if Plato thought so highly of Socrates then why would he want to put his own ideas in the conversations that Socrates had with people?
