Plato’s dialogue, The Gorgias, begins when Socrates arrives, with his friend Chaerophon, at the home of Callicles, the host of the dialogue. Callicles welcomes him with these words:
The wise man, as the proverb says, is late for a fray, but not for a feast.
If you have read the recent posts by Peter VdB and myself, here is a question for you:

What do you think?
