The Unexamined life is not worth living?
I don’t want to see a word or two or a few sentences. I really want to see you engage yourself in these questions and to really ponder and think about them. This is a philosophy class. Its all about the dialogue and the discussion. There are not right or wrong answers, just possibilities. A good philosophy conversation will go on forever.
1. How do you personally understand Socrates’ quote: “The Unexamined life is not worth living”? Do not google it but rather think about it and really try to break it down.
