Discussing a selection from Plato’s “Phaedrus”

The idea that writing and technology are connected is not exactly a new thing.  In fact, we start the term with this small part of Plato’s Phaedrus. Be sure to read the summary and my notes here to add a little context about where Plato/Socrates is coming from.

So, what do you think?  Do you see the potential connection with what Socrates is saying about this “new-fangled” technology called writing and what people sometimes say about things like computers or the internet nowadays?  Does Socrates have a point?
