A surprise quiz in Philo 101

Socratic wisdom is about asking questions. It is by questioning that one can know the level of one's knowledge and ignorance. It is by questioning that one can know the truth. It is by questioning that one becomes wise when one knows that he/she doesn't know what he/she doesn't know. One certainly knows his/her knowledge when one knows what he/she knows. One is ignorant when he/she pretends to know what he/she doesn't really know.

  1. In our Philosophy class our teacher didn't mention about Socratic Wisdom. But, I guess, I've read it in the Book. From the 10 descriptions of what is Wisdom. Socrates shows Ignorance, and by that, he keeps questioning. That maybe for me is Socratic Wisdom. :D
