The Contest

I Ramka Sokrates i Platon rozmawiają przy winie.  Plato: PHILOSOPHY, IS NOT A COMPETITOR TO ENTER SOME SILLY CONTEST... Sokratese: PLATO, TELL ME, ISN'T CONTEST, EVEN IF NOT WON, CONFIRMING A COURAGE OF THE COMPETITOR? THINGS ARE THE SAME WITH PHILOSOPHY...  II Ramka Do naszych bohaterów przysiada się Hegel. Platon ciągle niepocieszony, naburmuszony, Plato: PHILOSOPHY DOESN'T HAVE TO PROVE ANYTHING! IT'S A DOMAIN OF A PURE, IDEAL THOUGHT... AND BEING A PART OF CONTEST, COMIC STRIPS OR BLOGS CAN ONLY BRING A SHAME ON PHILOSOPHY.   III Ramka Jurek pouczając Platona mówi  Georg: O PLATO! THE TRUE AND THE GOOD, WISDOM AND VIRTUE, THE GENERAL TERMS BEYOND WHICH ONE CANNOT GET, ARE THEREFORE IN A GENERAL WAY NO DOUBT UPLIFTING, BUT THEY COME SOON TEDIOUS. Socrates pouring wine into Plato's glass: THAT'S WHY I ALWAYS SAY, GOOD WINE CAN ADD TASTE TO EVERY SPEECH...

Inspiration: G.W.F. Hegel, Phenomenology of spirit, vol I, First Indian Edition: Delhi 1998, p.122
