krasa Kirillov

If my truer name is Sokratos, and not krasa Kirillov, shoud I try to have a discussion with human beings, as in the old days?

Have human beings become more resistant to discussion, or was it always amazingly difficult?

Why can one not move forward in the manner of Plato's dialogues? Perhaps we simply don't know what we must in order to strive for such a collective searching? Was Socrates more educated than us? Was that the secret?

The fragrance that hangs over antiquity is hard to scent, and indeed, Socrates is a bridge between the ancients and the archaic forebears of the ancients, that is, he is further yet from our decayed and rusted nostrils. We are like statutes made of iron, and they living flesh. The island world of the Greeks was very much a strange thing, and as a corollary it bred strange men. Socrates was perhaps better educated than us. Even surely. Today, the mind is unable to grasp the energy and strength of the Greek sun-hodos, for its gentle light only passes before us like the dying of an evening glow in the far West. Yes, indeed, the συνουσία, which is a conférence of those early ones, decisively withdraws from us.
Philosophy sees outside the hoop levitated by common sense; there it anxiously attacks itself recoiling in repugnance from rest.
