What Plato needs is a jazz background

Happy new year.  This amazing track was posted recently on The Philosophy Smoker.  It's Sidney Poitier reading Jowett's translation of the Cave simile from Republic VII against a jazz background.


But that's not all.  There's a whole album of this stuff out there.

This is from it too, I think.  Part of the Apology.
