The Death of Socrates

The Death of Socrates
Product Description

The Death of Socrates is a richly insightful interpretation of the four Platonic dialogues that place Socrates in direct confrontation with human mortality. The Euthyphro, Apology, Crito, and Phaedo each present an element of the Socratic vision of death, of the appearance of life in the face of death, and how death ultimately is to be met. Poised and precise, The Death of Socrates is an excellent resource for new pupils and seasoned scholars alike of Plato and Guardini.

History cannot show many such figures, which by their very unrepeatable singularity, lead straight to the essential things; and among them it is perhaps Socrates who possesses in the highest degree this power of touching and moving people.” – Romano Guardini
