Precocious children are often jokingly scolded for being too smart for their own good. For the Greek philosopher, Socrates, there was no joking when his punishment was levied. The great thinker proved to actually be too great a thinker, and thus was put on trial and sentenced to death. Here in four books, performed with a polished clarity by Ray Atherton and Donal Donnelly, are Plato's records of his mentor, Socrates', final days. These dialogues not only catalog the events of Socrates's end, but offer invaluable debate on piety, justice, and the soul.
