Spanking Plato: The Classical Age

The Classical Age is the opportunity to obtain Sets 1 and 2 of Spanking Plato at a reduced cost. Both are included in one unit: The Classical Age.

Set 1 is the story of the Oracle of Delphi, known as Pythias, and the story of Socrates.

Set 2 is the story of Plato and Aristotle. Both of these sets are combined and available as a unit for twenty percent off the total price. Included are:

The Classical Age

Set 1:

Do Not Piss Off the Pythian

Therapy Session: Wesley’s Problem

Socrates: Socrates Loses It

Therapy Session: Socrates War

Set 2:

Plato: A Ring, a Cave, and a Toenail

Therapy Session: Spanking Plato

Aristotle: Death by Boredom

Therapy Session: An Explosion

Set 1 would normally cost $2.99. Set 2 would normally cost $4.99. Both purchased separately would cost $7.98. However, with the twenty percent discount the price for both is $6.38.

The choice is yours: purchase either of the two sets individually or Sets 1 and 2 combined for a twenty percent discount. That is you can acquire both sets for $6.38.

Alfred North Whitehead, a famous thinker, once said that all of western thought is a footnote to Plato. But imagine that western thought is a person. What would this individual think? How would he or she behave?

In Spanking Plato, a satirical, funny, and irreverent story, I have personified Western Thought—also known as Wes or Wesley Thought—as a man who is confused and angry because history considers him a mere footnote to Plato. After all, he says, he was around long before Plato. Many famous people, like Aquinas and Aristotle, have irritated him further by putting words in his mouth that misrepresent his ideas. As a result, he is confused about who he is and suffers an identity crisis. He seeks the help of a therapist.

A cynical story, Spanking Plato describes Wesley Thought’s frustration about how he has been misunderstood and misrepresented throughout history. Will he discover who he is?

One person referred to, Spanking Plato as, “A slaughterhouse for sacred cows.” Another said it was the next Monty Python.

It is not necessary to get each set. You can skip around and choose which set best meets your needs since they are individual units and can be taught independently.

For example, a science teacher might only be interested in Galileo and Newton, while a social studies teacher might be interested in Hobbes or Locke. An American History teacher might want a set of Jefferson and Hamilton.
