I was a bit wary going in but I was pleasantly surprised that this book wasn t as difficult to understand as I d expected it to beThe edition I read covered three dialogues about Socrates Apologia Crito and Phaedo who was tried for supposedly corrupting the youth of Athens as well as for encouraging worship of gods not recognized by the State I ve always heard that Socrates was a powerful orator and the way he defended himself in front of the court proves that Even when he was sentenced to death Socrates was curiously upbeat and as philosophical as ever discussing the state of the soul and so on What I got from the book was that Socrates was curious and valued virtue humility and honesty I can see how he pushed a few buttons telling people how stupid and ignorant they actually wereI still can t wrap my head around how long ago this was written My favourite section of the book was definitely Apologia Amazing courtroom drama Had it not been for the drawn out investigation of the soul in Phaedo I would have given this 5 stars The Longest Afternoon youth of Athens as well as for encouraging worship of gods not recognized by the State I ve always heard that Socrates was a powerful orator and the way he defended himself in front of the court proves that Even when he was sentenced to death Socrates was curiously upbeat and as philosophical as ever discussing the state of the soul and so on What I got from the book was that Socrates was curious and valued virtue humility and honesty I can see how he pushed a few buttons telling people how stupid and ignorant they actually wereI still can t wrap my head around how long ago this was written My favourite section of the book was definitely Apologia Amazing courtroom drama Had it not been for the drawn out investigation of the soul in Phaedo I would have given this 5 stars

Since I have individually reviewed each dialogue concerning their content I will be personal here I obviously enjoyed reading these dialogues I was not only enlightened by them but moved as well in certain parts by Socrates friends than the man himself This really should be the jumping off point for anyone interested in philosophy because it sets the tone and you can compare every strand of philosophy after it against it Plato did not create western philosophy obviously but he sure did make it into something amazing and it would be worth anyones time to check him out I will always admire the Socratic method even though I am in no way able to pull it off trust me I ve tried but it is poetry to read We could all benefit from a revival of Plato in society but since I won t hold my breath those who have read him can be thankful for the opportunity I read these dialogues as apart of the Classics of Western Philosophy anthology Glory Goals and Greed you can compare every strand of philosophy after it against it Plato did not create western philosophy obviously but he sure did make it into something amazing and it would be worth anyones time to check him out I will always admire the Socratic method even though I am in no way able to pull it off trust me I ve tried but it is poetry to read We could all benefit from a revival of Plato in society but since I won t hold my breath those who have read him can be thankful for the opportunity I read these dialogues as apart of the Classics of Western Philosophy anthology

When he was tried convicted and ordered to death in 399 BCE Socrates was already seventy years old he had lived through the imperialistic spread of Athenian democracy and culture under Pericles twenty five years of first cold and then heated war with Sparta the defeat of Athens in 404 BCE the short lived oligarchy imposed on that city by the Spartans and finally the reestablishment of democracy in his homeland During all of that time the former bricklayer was known for practicing philosophy in the public spaces of Athens using his inimitable style of uestioning those in authority who feigned virtue and wisdom while in reality lacking it This techniue gradually garnered him many powerful enemies who did their best to poison public opinion against him Socrates was often confused with the Sophists traveling teachers who sought to satisfy the public need for higher education generated by a democracy in which any male citizen could be called upon to serve in courts or assemblies But Socrates was ostensibly not interested in teaching per se his aim was to uncover the lack of virtue honesty and wisdom in those around him and to encourage them to learn as virtue is knowledge and once one knows what is right truly knows it one is no longer capable of doing wrong He often obliuely criticized democratic systems and indeed the power consolidation democracy afford the majority was exactly what did him inWhile Plato has only reported Socrates words and a few said by Meletus one of his accusers we do get a filtered idea of the sort of argument the prosecution was making democracy had only recently been restored in Athens and certain elements of the population probably motivated as Socrates claims by years of resentment toward the philosopher wanted to brand his sort of teaching for despite his claims to the contrary he was indeed teaching by example at the very least as destructive to the democratic institutions that Socrates himself often seemed to oppose as evidenced in his Dialogues which Plato also transcribed But the prosecution is largely silent and we can clearly analyze what Socrates does Throughout his defense he employs a disingenuousness that likely irked his opponents he begins by assuming a humble excuse my illiteracy sort of stance and gradually abdicates all responsibility for the message he is putting across ie authority figures are hypocritical boobs by appealing to a deus ex machina device the oracle s decree and god s voice in his ear However there is considerable nobility and courage in his refusal to kowtow to the Assembly s expectations that he ll beg for mercy and his dissection of the trumped up charges is perfectly executed The shift in tone after he s been found guilty is interesting no longer is the prosecution the brunt of his surgical nearly sarcastic grandstanding those voting against him catch it full on as he with great guts demands to be rewarded for corrupting the youth of Athens the way winners in the Olympics were His withering prophecies to all of Athens after he s been sentenced to death indicate a third tone shift short lived as it is He finally becomes introspective with his friends as the document closes and his inspiring advice and reuests serve as telling indicators of his real personality as opposed to his philosopher persona someone who loved his family and neighbors so much that he was willing to risk his life to make them good people
