Socrates (c. 469-399 BCE)

“What has caused my reputation is none other than a certain kind of wisdom. What kind of wisdom? Human wisdom, perhaps.”

  • This saying, attributed to Socrates, was recorded in Plato’s Apology (section 20d). The translation used here is by G. M. A. Grube, revised by John M. Cooper (Hackett Publishing, 2000).
