It doesn’t take a Socrates to figure out that there may be some kind of connection between all those tools of knowledge spoken of in the last episode, and reason.

But the heart of this episode is actually an exploration of where the limits of reason might be, which amounts to a kind of discovering of what reason can and can’t do for spiritual people.
