Publisher's 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.

    "Another well acted presentation"

    I am really enjoying Ray Childs' take on Socrates, a confident and sensible inquisitor. This lacks the jaw-dropping moments of the original Greek, but is better for it as interpreted performance is no contest to reading as anyone who has seen their favorite book brought to the cinema can attest. But this was a fast moving and intelligent production. I'll be listening to this again.

    "very good reader"

    the reader has brought Socrates to life, I find myself searching for this narrator because he does the very best socrates compared to all the others.
