Socrates and the association of truth & relevance

Socrates is considered the creator of classical Greek philosophy. He is famous for engaging in debates with the 2 types of wise people of the day:

  • material philosophers who tried to explain what the world is made of
  • sophists, interested only in rhetoric and not in truth.

He believed wisdom has to have relevance for the individual. While the materialists focused on truth and less on relevance, the sophists were only concerned with relevance while ignoring truth.

Socrates believed the person needs a philosophy that is both relevant & truthful.
