  1. 1. Socrates :The great philosopher and teacher TRIPLE FILTER TEST OF SOCRATES
  2. 2. In ancient Greece, Socrates was reputed to hold knowledge in high esteem. One day an acquaintance met the great philosopher and said, "Do you know what I just heard about your friend?”
  3. 3. "Hold on a minute, before telling me anything I'd like you to pass a little test. It's called the Triple Filter Test.“ Socrates replied. "Triple filter? What’s that? “ asked the visitor. “I have set of three filters, I shall take in your views only if passes thru these filters..” Explained Socrates.
  4. 4. The first filter is of Truthfulness... “Have you made absolutely sure that what you are about to tell me is true?" Socrates applied the first filter. "No..actually I just heard about it and...“ The man said. He was feeling he got caught on the wrong foot….
  5. 5. The second filter is of Goodness… Is what you are about to tell me about my friend something good?" Socrates applied the second filter… "No, on the contrary...“ The man was getting nervous…
  6. 6. The filter of Usefulness. You may still pass the test though, because there's one filter left. “Is what you want to tell me about my friend going to be useful ?" Socrates applied the final filter… "No, not really“ The man replied after thinking for a while and he was almost apologetic…
  7. 7. "Well," concluded Socrates, "if what you want to tell me is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to me at all?" The visitor not only learned the lesson of His life, but also became a better human being… This is why Socrates was a great philosopher & is still held in such high esteem.
