Let's learn something together!
I would have liked him because I'm alot like him.
You know, I do like philosophy and Socrates had a lot of good things to say. I'd probably have mixed feelings about him if I lived next to him---I'd love it when I needed advice or words of wisdom, but I'd probably be annoyed at the same time that he was so much smarter than me! :)
I would love to live next door to anyone who lived that long ago--including Socrates--just to see what people were like and how they thought back then. He sounds like the type of guy that it would be fun to take a plate of grandma's delicious chocolate chip cookies over to once a week and sit on the back patio eating them and discussing the issues and philosophies of the day.What a pleasure that would be!
I would have liked him if he was a quiet neighbor because I don't think they had glass windows back then or other things that would keep the noise out. And he probably spent a lot of time reading and writing so I'll bet he was pretty quiet. Except he did a lot of home schooling himself so maybe there were a lot of his acolytes around and maybe they were noisy, especially at recess.
