Tired of living a superficial life? Find deeper meaning with this philosopher.

Do you always set ambitious goals and find yourself at a crossroads despite all the accomplishments under your belt?

We all face the weight of our professional responsibilities, the stress of which seeps into our personal lives more often than we’d like to admit.

Taking time out of busy schedules for quality leisure with family and friends is no easy task, leading to burnout at work (and vice versa).

In fact, according to the 2015 Deloitte Workplace Burnout Survey, 77% of professionals reported experiencing burnout at their jobs, with 51% saying they experienced it more than once.

83% of the surveyed professionals also reported that their work burnout negatively affected their personal relationships.

So how does one achieve their desired professional and personal goals with their plates already full—if not overflowing?

It’s difficult to know where to begin, which problem to address first, and where to find the right solutions.

If you’ve been facing similar circumstances and feel lost, don’t worry; one of the greatest philosophers ever has got you covered!

This deep dive into Socrates’ life, teachings, and philosophies presents a fresh new perspective and guidance for those striving for success, work-life balance, meaning, and direction.

It’s a compass, offering practical insights inspired by the timeless wisdom of Socrates, that questions assumptions, engages in meaningful dialogue, and embraces Socratic teachings.

So whether you want to enhance your decision-making skills, learn more about ethical living, or are simply on the lookout for some personal growth, this book is all you’ll need to navigate life’s challenges.

THIS is your chance to unlock Socratic thought’s power, overcome obstacles, and lead a balanced, more fulfilling life.

Here’s just a fraction of the wealth of wisdom you’ll find hidden in each page of this book:

  • This childlike trait can help you channel your inner philosopher and apply your knowledge to various fields
  • An interesting method to find pleasure anytime, anywhere, and with anyone or anything (leading a happy life without artificial or inappropriate means)
  • Before you invest in new tools or technology, it’s important to take THESE necessary steps to optimize their use and ensure they work to your advantage
  • The ONE crucial trait you’ll need to master to gain knowledge successfully (and work efficiently as a part of a team)
  • You cannot fully understand yourself unless you recognize and acknowledge THIS crucial aspect of your life
  • How to prevent becoming a laughingstock and efficiently distinguish between constructive criticism and slander
  • The ultimate steps to take to gain a deeper understanding of different viewpoints from your colleagues and loved ones when resolving issues
  • “Dumbing down” your arguments won’t benefit anyone—do THIS instead (achieving the maximum level of persuasion through your speech)

…and much, much more.

While other books bore you with scattered historical anecdotes, propaganda, and philosophies, this book is a roadmap to catalyze your personal and professional evolution.

Each passage will pique your interest and inspire you to learn more about Socrates and live a life you’ve always dreamed of.

Why live in doubt when you can live a life of tranquility and success? Your self-discovery journey begins here—scroll up and click “Add to Cart” now!

    An excellent and enjoyable book about Socrates that provides insight into the philosopher’s life, influences, thoughts, and philosophy. The text is written in an accessible narrative and conversational style piquing the reader’s interest in the subject. Each chapter concludes with Action Steps, a section of text at the conclusion asking thoughtful questions relating to material presented in the chapter to think about and apply in one’s own life, followed by a useful Chapter Summary. This is an outstanding book on the wisdom of Socrates and self-examination and critical thinking.

    If there is one overwhelming goal that all our desires and actions aim at, it is our personal happiness. If there is anything we have learned from experience, it is that life interrupts, delays, and complicates achieving this goal of happiness. Life is at once something that happens to us, but it is also something we do—we are active participants shaping our own lives.

    Everyone wants to pursue personal happiness; however, life gets in the way. We often face many interruptions and delays which tend to throw us off course in our pursuit. So, if you are looking for a book to help you stay on the right path, then slow down and read what wisdom Socrates has for you.

    “Knowledge is not something so easy that it comes running to you at the click of a mouse or tap of a phone. You have to go after it, and this active process takes energy, effort, and focus. The acquisition of knowledge always begins with you, but it never really ends. You move on to the next problem, the next solution, and the next set of questions.”

    Wisdom University books are fantastic, short, and powerful. They are actionable so you can actually do, and not just read the science

    How to use:
    1. Read the succinct chapters which expertly summarize the latest science on a topic
    2. DO the action item(s) summarized at the end of each chapter
    3. Refer back to the chapter summary in the future to refresh your learnings

    Live your best life and never stop learning! Become like Socrates!

    I like to think of myself as a life-long learner. I read many, many books in the course of a year; mostly nonfiction, and I hope to learn something from each of them. Accessing Socrates has always been difficult for me. This book has been a great help in my understanding his life and ideas.

    In Pursuit of Socratic Wisdom, published by Wisdom University is a fairly quick read. It is well organized, with plain language and chapter summaries for review and later reference. The Book is very well noted and will guide the reader to many scholarly books and articles for further study.

    It offers clear accessible explanations of what Socrates believed and how he lived his life and each chapter outlines briefly, actions one can take to implement character and ways of living a good life through working on simple virtues. Socrates emphasized relationships with others as a way to achieve happiness and improve society.

    This book will be well worth your time.

    ‘The Socratic Wisdom' is not just a book; it's a mirror reflecting my lifelong quest for knowledge and understanding. As someone deeply committed to the pursuit of learning, I found this book striking a chord with my own values and aspirations.

    The author brings to life the teachings of Socrates in a way that is both profound and personally relevant. The chapter on Practical Knowledge particularly resonated with me. It discusses Socrates' belief in learning what is necessary for practical purposes, advocating for a balance between the pursuit of knowledge and the enjoyment of life. This aligns perfectly with my own philosophy – always in search of knowledge, yet mindful of the joy in life's simpler aspects.

    A quote from Socrates himself encapsulates this sentiment: 'The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.' This book has been a reminder that the journey of learning is endless and that there is always more to discover and understand.

    'The Socratic Wisdom' is more than a historical account; it's a guide to living a life of purpose, guided by virtue and a thirst for knowledge. It's a compelling read for anyone who, like me, seeks to navigate life with wisdom, integrity, and a balanced pursuit of knowledge.
