Philosophia is the love of wisdom. But how can we come to love what we don’t know yet, and how can we come to know anything, if we don’t already know what we are looking for. Maybe wisdom is, thus, simply the appreciation of a good aporia. But in our efficient, numbers driven age, who has time for aporias? If only someone could devise a quick test for wisdom, then Socrates wouldn’t have to run all over Athens engaging in lengthy conversations and ticking everyone off.
Thanks to the miracle of modern social science, someone has designed a test to score our wisdom. Not knowledge, nor cleverness, but actual wisdom – the Holy Grail of Socratic inquiry.
Take the test here, and then decide for yourself whether the test has uncovered the truth.
