Phaedo by Plato - ... Socrates first establishes the existence of an underworld based on an ancient idea that souls that are born come from there; essentially, they are born from the dead. The argument continues that if the living come back from the dead, the souls must be in existence in that realm which for Socrates is proof that the living only come from the dead (Phaedo 70d). He then extends this reason to all plants, animals, and things that come to be. Socrates expounds this logic using the argument that “if something smaller comes to be, it will come from something larger before, which became smaller” (Phaedo 69e)....   [tags: last conversation of Socrates]
