Been reading up on a lot of great Absurdist literature and I came across this quote.
"People think the world needs a republic, and they think it needs a new social order, and a new religion, but it never occurs to anyone that what the world really needs, confused as it is by much learning, is a new Socrates."
Søren Kierkegaard, The Sickness Unto Death (1849)
What do you guys think of this quote? Agree or disagree.
Do you think such a person is here, on the way or even possible, and how would we recognize such a person?
