The Roots of Face Reading...part 3.

Socrates (470-399 B.C.) admitted students to his academy only if their facial characteristics indicated them capable of scholarly pursuits. Plato was one of these students.


  1. I remember reading somewhere about how Socrates made fun of himself, his own features, maybe in one of the dialogues - because he wasn't really a very handsome man - he had a snub nose and thick brow. There are a few bust sculptures of Socrates that show likeness of his features. This is interesting information. -Amy.
