Here is why…
Most people live in a fixed pattern.
They never question what they are doing and why.
A person who doesn’t ask questions is full of ignorance.
Why asking questions is important?
It’s important because we all want to live a “good life.”
But to understand “good life” one must ask what a “bad life” is, right?
And above everything else, one should ask “what kind of life am I livng right now?”
So what is a good life?
Everybody wants it, but nobody sits down and figure out what does it even mean.
That’s why Socrates says that life is worth examining.
And those who never do, never find out.
Examining the current life help you figure out way to a good life.
