Contra Socrates


Contra Socrates

A very brief preface notes the sources for the material. Chapter 1 attacks Socrates for claiming to know nothing and then pontificating on many things that he claims he knows nothing about. The scene is in the form of a dialogue between an accuser and a silent Socrates, with some occasional input from an advocate for Socrates. We attack his view that the body is the cause of evil. We rather find the body as a constant reminder to sinful man the consequences of his evil, as the drunkard that wakes up in the mud and looks at his haggard blistered face, and suffers his hangover headache. Chapter 2 attacks his notion of recollection of knowledge, his views on archetypes and general notions of metaphysical matters. We compare the voluntary submission to martyrdom of Socrates to that of Jesus, unfavorably to Socrates. Socrates breaks the spirit of the law in favor of the letter of the law, while Jesus breaks the letter of the law to uphold the spirit of the law.
