On episode 61, we welcome philosopher Armand D’Angour to discuss the human side of Socrates, his love life and the ancient Greek conception of love, how patriarchal dominance precluded heterosexual romance, our persistent need to idealize great, historical figures, the benefits of Socratic dialogue in philosophy and psychotherapy, and why wisdom equates with the maintenance of an open mind.
