Most of the information about Socrates, His life and His philosophy, was transcribed after His departure by two of His students, Plato and Xenophon. Today we present an excerpt from one of the sophisticated and intriguing dialogues of Socrates with His friend mathematician Theaetetus. The Venerated Master interestingly talks about knowledge and perception. "Some of them appear dull enough at first, but afterwards, as our acquaintance ripens, if the god is gracious to them, they all make astonishing progress; and this in the opinion of others as well as in their own. It is quite dear that they never learned anything from me; the many fine discoveries to which they cling are of their own making. But to me and the god they owe their delivery."
