  1. A fool who knows he's not a fool, a fool.
    Classic: The non-fool recognizes himself as a fool. “I know what I don't know. Others don't even know that.” – the idea of a non-fool, like Socrates.

  2. Galya, stop putting anything in your mouth (the avatar is painfully scary) and turn on the logic:

    The condition for the transition from the state of “fool” to the state of “not fool” is a correct awareness of the initial state of affairs, i.e. the fool must admit to himself that he is a fool. This will not make her a” good girl ” yet, but it will make her no longer a fool. Indeed: “I know that I don't know anything…” (Socrates) with an emphasis on the first “I know”. “… others don't even know this” i.e. they are in sweet confidence in their own if not “smartness”, then “normality”, not “stupidity” and therefore remain fools.�

    For your interest:�

    Why “A fool who realizes that he is a fool is no longer a fool” is true,�

    and “Smart, realizing that he is smart, is no longer smart” with the external similarity of the conclusion-is it false? 🤓

  3. I thought about it. Achtung! then comes the free-thinking text of an incompetent author in the subject area. I project the question on myself, so it's more convenient for me to understand. So: it seems to me that the word “fool” is very abstract and does not reflect the presence of specific qualities of a person or their absence. I will reduce it to specifics. For example: I'm bad at higher mathematics. Not quite, of course, but I did not submit to this exact science during my studies. Does it mean that I am a complete ignoramus (read: fool) in higher mathematics? Definitely. Do I fully realize that I am the one in this subject? No doubt about it. Was I less of a fool for realizing that? Unfortunately, no. But these are particulars. Science, numbers, work, and so on. Ask many people: “Do you have any friends who seem to be smart people, but in life are such fools that even if you stand, even if you fall?” “they'll say yes. I move away from the specifics: here is a (subjectively) named fool in life. A collective image of a fool. Until he understands that he is a fool, he is a fool, committing the actions of a fool, the actions of a fool from the resulting circumstances making conclusions of a fool. But once he realizes that there, there and there he was a fool-voila! it changes the approach to certain situations, allowing you to say: “Listen, and Petya / Vasya/etc., such a fool was, and now out, for the mind took-it's a pleasure to see.” In general, I come to the following conclusion: a fool who realizes that he is a fool will stop being a fool only in one case: if this realization leads to changes that allow him to stop being a fool. Do you know that?”

    Here's another thing…as you can see, no one, including me, guarantees you that this text is also not another fool's conclusion.
