Raphael’s School of Athens is a perfect image of a scholê, where life-long learners such as Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, Zoroaster, Heraclitus, Pythagoras, Averroës, Diogenes, Epicurus, Ptolemy, Euclid, Zeno, and others are engaged in the life-giving pursuit of knowledge.
SCHOLÊ from the Greek meaning leisure. Scholê, the root word of school, implies the life-long pursuit of an expanding use of time so as to develop to the fullest the mind, body, and spirit. Scholê exemplifies the Greek belief that "the unexamined life is not worth living." ( Socrates )
