choice of the Good and Bad; bodies we are mixtures
With virtual reality, in its present state, this is possible. I have been thinking about this for a long time, and because I want to see this come to fruition, I have decided to take the risk and put my idea out there. But if someone does think this is a good idea, and can help, I hope that they would involve me in the project. So if you are seriously interested leave a comment, but not that you have to be seriously interested to leave a comment, no not at all.
So do we stay faithful to tradition, to history, to the total educational experienced, or do we edit reality, as we already do with our history (which have no choice but to be selective, but often it is a matter of not degrees, but of Good verse Bad history, and what history should be, that is ought be, which is alway a choice, a choice which is never completely free, as it is forced to obey the dominate logic of the discipline (and yet resistance is possible, necessarily so). But back to the basic question, and I would of course given the opportunity, be interested in building the immoral or amoral or differently moral version of the "real" Socrates, which in turn would mostly be forced by standards and practices, concerned moms, and the media that instills fear in them, and all other institutions that play their parts/roles, as they act as mechanism of control, to be Socrates-lite, PG-13 or even G.
I will end there with more brought up than discussed. And anyone interested in putting together a virtual reality version of any philosopher, let me know. I have some computer programming skills (and computer skills), a decent understanding of philosophy and literature (I have the equivalent of a Master's degree in Philosophy, which I will be awarded after I finish my Doctoral Work in Comparative Literature (only a few short years left, thank Bog)), and would welcome anyone who will take this seriously.
As always, let us here on the corner know that you where here, leave a comment... for a good beginning on the type of research in area of artificial intelligence programs please review this link: computer programing and the Socratic method.
