I'd be willing to bet that he learned of the concept in english; since many books on the subject are published in english. So i guess my question to you would be: Have you never heard of translators?
You missed the point i was trying to make. Classical languages are the well from which modern ideas sprang. I'm quite sure that reading Plato or Socrates, or for that matter any Classical work in the tounge that it was written in is a different experience than reading it in a translated form. What about learning a language just for the culture of it?
