4 - Plato's Apology 4: Your Brain On Politics
Play • 52 min

A lot of Athenians suspect Socrates of plotting to overthrow democracy. On the other hand, Socrates says that when Athenians start thinking politics, they turn into a paranoid mob. This episode covers both sides and it honestly sounds like Socrates is complaining about Twitter. 

Topics:
-Why people who are into politics are so annoying. 
-How the “political mindset” differs from the “philosophical mindset.”
-Whether Socrates is an enemy of the state.
