I Know That I Know Nothing


scepticisme scientifique

oracle stated something to the effect of “Socrates is the wisest person in Athens."[3] Socrates, believing the oracle but also completely convinced that he knew nothing, was said to have concluded that nobody knew anything, and that he was only wiser than others because he was the only person who recognized his own ignorance.


technically a shorter paraphrasing of Socrates’ statement, “I neither know nor think I know”
