Dream About Argument: 25+ Meanings and Interpretations

Everyone has dreams. But for some, the power of their dreams is enough to completely change their lives. Dreams about arguments can propel you to fight for a cause or make the world a better place.

The great philosopher Socrates, in his dream about the “Form of a Good Man,” describes a man in the sky who, though his face hidden, wears the crown of justice and soars above all natural things.

This dream was perhaps Socrates’ greatest argument for belief. Socrates considered all other arguments to be weak and meaningless.

Thus, he believed that he was visited by this person, which was an acceptable answer to any question – and only by accepting that this person was real could you live an ethical life.
