Socrates was a Greek philosopher.
In the City of the Saved, a Neanderthal Remake of Socrates (purporting to be the real one, possibly out of genuine belief) was hired by the University of Seven Ages to educate its undergraduates. After a meeting with the university's dean, Socrates instead declared his intentions to learn from the other lecturers about their philosophies, and impart the knowledge he learned there to others. Socrates then began to heckle his fellow lecturers on their philosophies, often picking apart their beliefs. This became a problem for the university, and they soon terminated his lectureship. Socrates accepted the termination, and left the university with Inigo Faber before Kane News reporters arrived. (PROSE: The Socratic Problem)
