Answer for question 4332.

Who's your favorite philosopher and why? Why do you connect with this person so much?
Socrates - rational thought philosopher and an all round interesting fellow. His teachings endorsed the fine art of debate. He also taught Plato a thing or two, agitated people who quite likely needed to be agitated, then was sentenced to death by hemlock.

Well, that's the bowdlerised version of the story.

I connect with this, because I appreciate the art of debate - even if it is not something I am good at myself.
