"Read the ancients" poll

Have you read the ancients...either literature, philosophy, or science?


If you haven't read the ancients, then you are really missing a rich heritage of the sciences, philosophy, and arts. Go to the library [or on line] and check out Plato, Aristotle, Sophocles, Pythagoras, or Aristophanes. You will be surprised how relevant they can be...from what makes us laugh, or cry, or understand democracy, or be exposed to geometry, or understand ourselves.
