LETTERS TO THE TIMES

Good, Long, Deep Talks

September 15, 2004

Sanford Lakoff's fine essay, "And This, Socrates, Is a Cursor" (Commentary, Sept. 12), outlines the development of devices for putting information on paper and on computer screens. Socrates would not need these instruments because he never wrote down his philosophy. He preferred the give and take of an oral conversation.

Fortunately, Plato's written dialogues contain many of Socrates' ideas.
