Victor Nuovo: Socrates preached self examination

Posted on September 24, 2015 |
By Victor Nuovo



Justice and Plato's Republic standing hed box.jpg

Socrates was not handsome. He was short, stocky, thick limbed, bow-legged, and large headed. He had a snub nose and protruding eyes, which served him well. His detractors called him a busybody, a buttonholer. He had the ability in extraordinary measure to engage people in conversation, fixing them in the intense glance of his bulging eyes, and to cause them to admit things about themselves that they did not care to acknowledge. And this is how he spent his time.

Organ recital in Verg Jenny Bower.JPG

VERGENNES — Jenny Bower started playing piano around 4 years old, in a free-for-all class for preschoolers. She kept with it and in her third year at Oberlin College she realized that she was more interested in historical instruments.

She was drawn to the organ because her church had recently lost its organist, and then she had a string of inspiring organ teachers, including James David Christie, one of the founding fathers of the modern historical performance movement in the United States.

VERGENNES — Despite injuries, the Vergennes Union High School girls’ soccer team has been competitive in all of its games this fall and won three of them.

Unfortunately, Tuesday’s home game vs. Rice was an exception. The Division I Green Knights (4-2) got two early scores that might have taken the wind out of the Commodores’ sails, and Rice coasted to a 6-0 victory.

The Commodores fell to 3-4. Two of those losses had been by one goal, and the team had played well in a 2-0 setback against 6-1 Milton on Saturday.
