The Trial and the Death of Socrates | [Plato]

The Trial and the Death of Socrates

The Trial and the Death of Socrates remains a powerful document not least because it gives a first-hand account of the end of one of the greatest figures in history.

In Apology, Socrates defends himself before the Athenian court against charges of corrupting youth. Phaedo is the account by a young man of the actual last words and moments of Socrates.

    "Excellent rendition"

    People don't change. His persecutors could live today. I am not sure, however, that we have a Socrates.

    "Lots to think about"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Trial and the Death of Socrates to be better than the print version?

    not sure don't have the book


    What other book might you compare The Trial and the Death of Socrates to and why?

    not sure.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    makes it easy for a trucker to get in some books while driving.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me think. Puts into better argument about death and life in a different way.


    Any additional comments?

    Must get if like to think deep on life.
