HOMEWORK

This pantheon of gods gave people a sense of their place in the universe. But in the exiting times, a few were daring to question religious convention. As a teenager, Socrates saw them out in one of the Athens edging and marginal districts -- Carimicos.

“For 600 years, this had been Athens’ main burial ground coming to Socrates’ day, and it evolved into a kind of cosmopolitan suburbs of sin. Traveling salesmen plighted their ways here along with prostitutes who offered what were, well, even mistakenly known as ‘middle of the day marriages’.”

Many young Athenians didn’t need to work. There was one slave to every two free citizens. So Socrates had the free time to come here and listen in on theories carried in on the trade routes. He encountered thinkers from eastern Mediterranean, whose ideas had for over a century confronted traditional explanations of the cosmos. What people saw as mysterious and unfathomable, they viewed as rationally ordered, and to some degree rationally explicable.
