On Plato, Ethical Theory, And Ships

Lol of the day: whenever my professor talks about the analogous relationship between Platonic mousike in the Republic to Aristotelean philosophy education in the Politics he gets really excited and said:

"I bet if I keep reading in the Republic I will see Plato talk about the necessity of action in. So I kept reading and said to myself 'holy crap! There it was.'"

But he didn't use crap; he used a word analogous to crap -like ship. At first I thought it was an accident, but then he did it five more times.
