Audible Editor Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

Plato recorded the final days of his mentor, Socrates, who was tried and condemned in Athens in 399 B.C. on trumped-up charges of being a heretic and corrupter of the young. This collection comprises 4 books: Euthyphro, in which Socrates engages Euthyphro in a debate on the steps of the courthouse where he is to stand trial, The Apology, in which Socrates argues on his own behalf, Crito, in which Socrates's friends and supporters visit him in prison and urge him to recant, and Phaedo, in which there is a debate on the destination of the soul, and, eventually, the philosopher's end.
