Steve Martin: Death of Socrates

from the 1980 Steve Martin special "Comedy Is Not Pretty"
BTW: those glitches in the video aren't due to the VHS cassette, but to an electrical storm at the original time of taping.


Socrates on Self-Confidence

Presented by popular British philosopher Alain de Botton, this installment of "Philosophy: A Guide to Happiness" focuses on Socrates. Why do so many people go along with the crowd and fail to stand up for what they truly believe? Partly because they are too easily swayed by other people's opinions and partly because they don't know when to have confidence in their own.


Socrates Meets Jesus

Highly recommended. What would happen if history's greatest philosopher met Christianity's Lor d ans Saviour? Would he not see through their cant and compromise.
