Reading Plato’s Republic and listening to commentary on this great work from the Teaching Company. Republic mentions Sophism and Sophistry, the Greek philosophical tool of rhetoric. This is my take on this… Sofa-stry.
BTW, I need to mention that Coursera is offering free college courses on hundreds of topics, offered by Ivy League schools. I registered for Greek and Roman mythology and the class is fantastic, with excellent and interesting lectures. Its free Ivy League-quality education, check it out for yourself. Only a fool would pass up such an opportunity, free college courses, no strings attached. Hell yeaaaah!
