Publisher's Summary

The Trial and Death of Socrates presents the trial and subsequent execution of Socrates in 399 BCE. Socrates was tried on the basis of two ambiguous charges: corrupting the youth and impiety. “Euthyphro”, one of Plato's early dialogues, takes place during the weeks leading up to Socrates' trial. “Apology” is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he defends himself against the charges of being a man "who corrupted the young, refused to worship the gods, and created new deities". “Crito”, a short dialogue by Plato, is a conversation between Socrates and his wealthy friend Crito regarding justice, injustice, and the appropriate response to injustice. “Phaedo”, depicts the death of Socrates, and is Plato's last dialogue covering Socrates’ final days.
