    Georges Dassis’ article to Adjacent Government, edition February 2017

     

    Once upon a time those wishing to know the future could consult the Oracle of Delphi. This High Priestess must have disappointed or baffled her “customers” on more than one occasion; sometimes she did not reply at all, or her answer was rather… cryptic. But the customer had been warned: Inscribed on the Temple of Apollo was not “Here stands the god of whom you may ask all you would like to know”, but rather “Γνῶθι σεαυτόν”. Know thyself. Socrates ultimately saw this as a way of saying “try to be reasonable” (σωφρονεῖν).
