Reviews for Questioning Socrates

I think the best quote I can think of to review your essay and answer your question is one by one of America's greatest authors/social commentators, Mark Twain.

He said: "Never let your schooling interfere with your education."

One problem: too much examination can lead to chaos. Confusius was said: "A man who knows he knows nothing knows he knows nothing, but a man who thinks he knows everything really knows absolutely nothing at all." Too much examination of life can lead to mere confusion, and too much confusion leads to unhappiness. Sometimes "Ignorance is bliss". Too much ignorance is unhealthy, but too not enough is just plan ignorant. You need a balance of both.

I think Socrate's quote can be interpreted in multiple ways. I agree with you, when you mentioned questioning your purpose in life. As much as we should question and continue questioning ourselves, it's difficult to find the suitable answer that'll satisfy you. I liked how you approached this topic by using the example of children absorbing knowledge solely for that one school year.
