In The Clouds the historical teacher and philosopher Socrates replaces the Greek gods with goddesses called the Clouds, which are represented by the Chorus. He argues that the Clouds, not the gods, create the weather. The Clouds also come to represent the vague arguments Socrates teaches his students. Like clouds in the sky, Socrates's arguments are formless and open to interpretation.
