Taking into account, and giving your mind to your mind so that it alone: whether or not what I say is just” Plato’s account of the trial of Socrates and death (399 BC) is an important moment in Classical literature and the life of Classical Athens.In these dialogues, Plato develops the Socratics, the belief in responsibility for oneself and shows Socrates’s life and death, by virtue of his philosophyIn the Euthyphron, Socrates debates goodness outside the palace of justice; excuses sees him in the court, refuting all accusations of ungodliness; in the Criton, he refuses a plea to escape from prison; and in the Phedon, Socrates faces his imminence of death with the calm and skillful discussion of immortality.Christopher Rowe’s introduction of his new and powerful translation examines the book’s themes of identity and confrontation, and explores how its content is less a historical fact than a promotion of Plato’s Socratic philosophy.
