In response to Scott Gray's comments on Socrates:

The value of Socrates, from my perspective, is
modelling the Socratic method which is a very helpful
tool in pedagogic, and andragogic, practice. As for
his personal life...any number of heroes have human
flaws and one should not automatically discount the
contributions because the contributor was less than
admirable.

As the saying goes, you peel the orange, throw away
the rind (or better yet compost it!) and eat the fruit
inside.
