A disciple comes to a philosophy school looking for an answer to the question: “What quality is the most important one for an ancient Greek?” Two resident philosophers compete in scaring him, describing tortures they’ll subject him to for his impudence. The would-be student flees in terror. Philosophers lament the lack of payment and the stupidity of the visitor who did not grasp that the answer is “imagination.” (in Russian)
