Socrates’ WayForeword: by Michael J. Gelb

Preface: Socrates, My Mentor

Introduction: Socrates’ Life and Times-and Ours

1. Know Thyself
The unexamined life is not worth living

2. Ask Great Questions
My way toward the truth is to ask the right questions.

3. Think for Yourself
Do not be convinced by me. Be convinced by the truth.

4. Challenge Conventions
We must escape from the Cave of illusions.

5. Grow with Friends
A flame of wisdom illuminated and warmed us, which none of us could have ignited alone.

6. Speak the Truth
It has been my fixed principle to speak the truth.

7. Strengthen Your Soul
Oh, my friend, why so little care for your soul?

Socrates’ Way for Women
To judge a person’s capability by gender is like judging a man’s intelligence by the amount of hair on his head.
