“How could you say wealth is good?”

“Is wealth a good thing?”

“What makes us truly happy?”

In Athens, Socrates was the only one discussing big ideas with these embattled citizens. The sophists or cock jaw(?) showy educators, masters of the art of persuasive argument, and to the speech makers and legal trials, entertaining huge crowds in stadiums, Socrates was skeptical to say the least.

“Like the sophists, he challenged orthodox stores, but appealed so passionately to believe that philosophy should have higher purpose. Private ideas, persuasive arguments just weren’t enough.”

To the sophists, smart words were currency. They sold their services to the highest bidder, but Socrates refused to be paid per every handout from friends. That’s not to say he didn’t enjoy worldly pleasures. He drank and made love, but barefoot and unwashed, he stood out in materially-minded Athens.
