'Mentes socráticas', por Moritz Schlick

«As long as people speak and write so much more than they think, using their words in a mechanical, conventional manner, disagreeing about the Good (in Ethics), the Beautiful (in Aesthetis) and the Useful (in Economics and Politics), we shall stand in great need of men with Socratic minds in all our human pursuits».
