Socrates (c. 469-399 BCE)

“Surely it is the most blameworthy ignorance to believe that one knows what one does not know.”

  • This saying, attributed to Socrates, was recorded in Plato’s Apology (section 29b). The translation used here is by G. M. A. Grube, revised by John M. Cooper (Hackett Publishing, 2000).
