Summary

Socrates is on trial for his life. He is charged with impiety and corrupting young people. He presents his own defense, explaining why he has devoted his life to challenging the most powerful and important people in the Greek world. The reason is that rich and famous politicians, priests, poets, and a host of others pretend to know what is good, true, holy, and beautiful, but when Socrates questions them, they are shown to be foolish rather than wise.

Ray Childs

I find Ray Childs series of Plato's works with a full cast very interesting and a welcome way to understand the concepts that are expressed. The best part is that with each work the cast is consistent which makes it easier to go from one to the other. I recommend the entire series.

The language of virtue

Listen to the language of apology. The words of affirmation and the desire to obtain, what is most Devine. In life, more than death, we should overland empathy.

The literature and range of tone take you to the time and place of Athens. Where the Socrates expounds on allegations, which he deems as false.

Allow the ears to take every words as information and all information as a step toward a more sovereign soul. Most of all ENJOY!
