After a lifetime of trying to figure out human nature, and having VERY poor natural inferring abilities (I’m terrible at figuring out “What someone is implying”]
I _think_ perhaps the “Who is next to be honest?” _might_ have carried an implication of lying going on, when one claims knowledge of Philosophy without being properly trained.
However, I’m not certain of that. I have to reason-out inferring and implication type things, as my mind comes up with 12+ potential reasons, all equally valid.
It’s hard for me to get the one that “rises to the top” as the most possible. Makes me kind of like Data on Star Trek TNG at times.
