fun with Kierkegaard

If the natural sciences had been developed in Socrates’s day as they are now, all the sophists would have been scientists. One would have hung a microscope outside his shop in order to attract custom, and then would have had a sign painted saying: “Learn and see through a giant microscope how a man thinks” (and on reading the advertisement Socrates would have said: “that is how men who do not think behave”).
- S.K.

Taken from his Journals, I believe.
I'm taking a class on Kierkegaard this semester, so I expect that he'll find his way onto through the wardrobe more and more as a result.
