Plato, on The Espresso
This week: Our own distinguished professor Orif Barrubgtib has discovered one of the lost dialogs of Plato, related to The Crito and The Phaedo, which I feel is relevant to our Monday morning activity. For your edification, I shall reproduce a section below.
THE ESPRESSO by Plato
Lobotomos: Is it true, Socrates, that the decaffeinated life is not worth living?
Socrates: Not only is it true, Lobotomos, but upon careful reflection it is patent. For is not reason the foundation of virtue?
Lobotomos: Certainly, Socrates.
Socrates: And without virtue, there would be no reason.
Lobotomos: Of course, Socrates.
Socrates: And reason requires wakefulness.
Lobotomos: No one could possibly deny it, Socrates.
Socrates: And it is quite impossible to be truly awake on a Monday morning without caffeine.
Lobotomos: How truly you speak, Socrates.
Socrates: Thus virtue ergo reason needs wakefulness via caffeine. Q.E.D.
Lobotomos: I see now that must certainly be the case, Socrates.
