Socratic Shield

April 02, 2012

“To know is to know that you know nothing. That is the true meaning of knowledge.” The teachings of Socrates point towards the importance of learning, and a love for both the bigger lessons and the more trivial. “Beware the barrenness of a busy life.” Trivia Club’s Socratic Shield is not so much an annual physical prize, but more a mark of those teams who have helped shape what Trivia Club is in a given calendar year. Awarded to the team with the most Golden VHSes from January 1st to December 31st, winners of the Shield are almost a Socratic Method in and of themselves, giving you an idea of at least the who, what, and where of that calendar year. “Wisdom begins in wonder.”
