GEIST. RENDEZVOUS WITH DESTINY.
It is a common superstition of mariners, that, in the high seas, hurricanes are frequently ushered in by the appearance of a specter-ship, denominated the SS Argentina. The crew of this vessel is supposed to have been guilty of some dreadful war-crime, in the infancy of scientific discovery; and to have been stricken with pestilence. And are ordained still to traverse the ocean on which they perished, till the period of their penance expires.

ARISTOPHANE'S THE CLOUDS
"Socrates has his head in the clouds!"
Strepsiades, too deep in debt to get any sleep, enrolls himself in The Thinkery, a school for wastrels and bums that no self-respecting, old man dares to be associated with, but where its principal, Socrates, promises to teach him how to turn inferior arguments into winning arguments, and where the faculty venerates a new thing called rational thought!
Oh, that new thing called Rational Thought!
The play some consider the contributing factor in Socrates' trial and execution in 399 BC.
Socrates the classical Athenian philosopher credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy, and as being the first moral philosopher, of the Western ethical tradition of thought.
The Clouds has been made possible by a generous grant from The Alfred Z. Solomon Charitable Trust, and loyal audiences like you.
