PLATO…

…VERSUS…

[EXPLOSION]

…SOCRATES!

ROUND ONE: DEBATE!

“Why if it isn’t my old master, Socrates.”

“Plato. I always suspected you’d return one day.”

“How long has it been, Socrates? Ten? Fifteen years?”

“Seeing as you’ve founded an entire academy dedicated to mathematics, I’d think the answer should have dawned upon you by now. Shall I fetch you an abacus?”

[EXPLOSION]

RHETORICAL COMBO!

“I see your wit has lost none of it’s vehemence, old teacher. A pity. Any man may easily do harm, be it physical or physiological. But not every man can do good to another.”

JUSTIFICATION COUNTER!

“He is a man of courage who does not run away, but remains at his post and fights against the enemy.”

PHILOSOPHER-KING COUNTER!

“Spoken like a true Athenian soldier. But why do you play the gadfly with me, Socrates? We both strive for a government based on wisdom over rhetoric. We both see eye to eye on the intellectual consequences of denying the material world.”

“Yet far has the apple fallen from the tree, Plato. Your teachings are rife with elitism and hubris. True wisdom begins in wonder. Now I wonder if wisdom has eluded you completely.”

[EXPLOSION]

PLAY ON WORDS COMBO!

“Ah, but I know you don’t really mean those spiteful words, Socrates. In fact, didn’t you always say ‘no one does wrong knowingly’?”

[EXPLOSION]

PARADOX COMBO!

“Using my own rhetoric against me, Plato?”

“It’s because of my writings that people are even able to attribute them to you! You’ve always underestimated your best and brightest student. You’ll never learn true knowledge. Or should I say, you’ll never… recall it?”

[EXPLOSION]

SUPER PARADOX COMBO!

“You possess much knowledge, my young pupil. But true knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing.”

DAIMONIC COMBO BREAKER!

“A cunning, albeit overused, little saying you’ve got there, Socrates. However, cunning is a lowly mimic of wisdom.”

[EXPLOSION]

PLATO HAS LEVELED UP! ULTRA HEMLOCK PUNCH UNLOCKED!

“Oh dear…”

“When I left you, Socrates, I was but the learner. Now I am the master. Any last words, old man?”

“By dedicating my life to philosophy, I have directly and of my own accord prepared myself for dying and death. And death is but the cure of the soul from the body, my dear Plato.”

“Then prepare to be cured to a fine, powdery ash!”

DISPROVE HIM!

“HEMLOCK PUUUUUUUNCH!”
