Alan Lakein, a time management expert, thinks that
nothing is a total waste of time, including doing nothing
at times. If you arrange things so that you find time torelax and “ do nothing"， you will get more done and have
more fun doing it.
One of his clients, a space engineer, didn' t know how
“do nothing ”. Every minute of his leisure time was
intense activities. He had an outdoor-
activites schedule in which he switched from skiing to
tennis. His girlfriend kept up with him in these activities,
although she would have preferred just to sit by the fire
and relax once in a while. Like too many people, he felt
the need to be doing something all the time, for doing
nothing seemed a waste of time. His“relaxing by the fire"
consisted of playing chess, reading magazines, or checking
For an experiment, Alan asked him to" waste" his time
for five minutes during one of their sessions together.
What the engineer ended up doing was relaxing, stting
quietly and daydreaming. When he was finally able to admit
that emotional reasons caused him to reject relaxing as
waste of time, he began to look more critically at that way
of thinking. Once he knew that relaxing was a good use of
time, he became less serious about being busy and started
enjoying each activity more. Previously he had been so busy
doing that he had no time to have fun at anything. He began
to do less and have more fun. When Alan saw the client
about three years later, he still had as busy a schedule as
ever, but he was able to balance his activity with relaxing
so that he came back to work Monday morning not feeling
tired out from a busy weekend but refreshed.

Socrates is often referred to as one of the founders of
Westerm philosophy，and yet he wrote nothing,estabished no
school, and held no particular theories of his own. What he
did do, however,was frequently ask the questions that
interested him, and in doing so developed a new way of
thinking. This method proceeds (展开) as a dialogue between
opposing views, and it earmed him many enemies in Athens,
where he lived.
As a young man, Socrates is believed to have studied
natural philosophy, looking at the various explanations of
the nature of the universe, but then became involved in the
politics of the city-state and concerned with more down-to-
earth moral issues, such as the nature of justice.
However, he was not interested in winning arguments, or
arguing for the sake of making money. Nor was he seeking
answers or explanations. He was simply examining the basis
of the concepts we apply to ourselves (such as “ good" ，
“bad”, and “just" )，for he believed that understanding
what we are is the first task of philosophy.
He was sentenced to death on charges of corrupting the
young with bad ideas. But he also had many followers, and
among them was Plato, who recorded Socrates’ ideas in the
written works, called dialogues, in which Socrates sets
about examining various ideas.
Socrates’ central concerm, then, was the examination
of life, and it was his cruel questioning of people' s most
valued beliefs ( largely about themselves) that earned him
his enemies- but he remained committed to his task until
the very end. According to the account of his defense at
his trial, Socrates chose death rather than face a life of
ignorance: “ The life which is unexamined is not worth
52. What is true about Socrates?
A. Socrates solved the problems of Westerm philosophy.B. Socrates tried to find answers to his questions.
C. Socrates forced his enemies to accept his ideas.
D. Socrates cared about the meaning of life.
53. What is the most important task of philosophy according
A. Understanding our true self.
B. Examining some basic concepts.
C. Challenging the views of enemies.
D. Giving explanations for arguments.
54. What is the passage mainly about?
A. Socrates’beliefs of philosophy.
B. Socrates’outlook on death,
C. Socrates’influence on youths.
D. Socrates' questions about universe.
55. What is the tone of the passage?
A. Humorous. B. Bitter. C. Sympathetic. D. Objective.
