Socratarians Section 9

Thursday, we started off introducing ourselves to one another, primarily through first names, followed by an attempt to name our team. That epic attempt seemed to be a success phonetically, as we had created a brand new word: Socratarians. However, we as a group did not have much knowledge on the subject of the philosopher our name was derived from, Socrates. After we had realized we were okay with this indiscretion, we moved on to our personal beliefs of what philosophy really is, and although we may have all said something different, I distinctly remember a lot of "how you think"  as part of the"definition." And then, we embarked on a new journey of finding "our philosophy" through an online, seven question, questionnaire found on one of the most trusted websites: Google. Sadly, we ran out of time and could not finish.
