Can you imagine Socrates as a professional academic?

Socrates as professional academic:

Bad clothes. Check.

Smelly. Check.

Neglectful of family. Check.

Aimless wandering. Check.

Somewhat rude. Check.

Insists that all conversations revolve around his concerns. Check.

Struggles with sexual attraction to the young. Check.

Done.

Willing to risk his life for his beliefs? Check.

His homepage gives a clue to what is going on here.

First, the url is www.vincent-inc.com. Which means he is accustomed to branding and selling himself, so why not sell the sexuality of young women to bolster his own brand recognition?

Second, how many philosophers have an "In the Media" tab on their website? He clearly seems himself as an academic/media figure.

Third, his "In the media" page hosts a dizzyingly pretentious slew of male-modelling/glam shots of the good professor: http://www.vince-inc.com/vincent/?page_id=24

Conclusion: this guy is a rampant narcissist who sees himself and others as commodities to be bought, sold, and advertised.

Good thing he works in logic and epistemology...ethics are clearly not his strong suit.
