While on the tube work this morning, we noticed an interview with a bloke called Alain De Botton (so hard not to write ‘bottom’), an author and philosopher who reckons Harry Styles should be tweeting about Greek philosophy.
"The problem we've got is that most famous people in the country tend to believe in things that aren't particularly ambitious,” said Mr. De Bottom.
“In an ideal world Harry Styles would be teaching his 10 million Twitter followers a little more about Greek philosophy."
Hmm, does he? we thought. We’d much prefer it if he exposed us to a bit of Nietzsche or failing that, the musings of Rylan Clark.
Hazza however is apparently on board with all this philosophy lark and hours later let us into this little insight.
"Socrates, born in Athens in the 5th century BCE, marks a watershed in Ancient Greek philosophy.”
Now OK, this reeks of cutting and pasting from Wikipaedia, but just for this time we’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume it was from his notes from the lecture he recently gave at St. Andrew’s University.
Harry: 1 De Bottom: 0.
