    Crito is trying to persuade Socrates to escape not only because Crito feels he will lose a beloved friend, but also because he feels the majority will judge him for valuing himself over Socrates. In the passage, Socrates states many arguments to try and explain to Crito that the opinions of the majority do not and should not matter. The most compelling argument Socrates gives for this claim is when he states, “I am the kind of man who listens only to the argument that on reflection seems best to

    Socrates had an interesting view on what wisdom was. Various times, Socrates claimed that he was ignorant and lacked wisdom. Socrates even goes as far to say that he has reached for someone far wiser than him, but failed to find such a wise person. It is clear that Socrates is in fact wise and knows may things. During his trial, Socrates brought up his accusations. He claims that his wisdom is that of any human being, limited. His prosecutors claim that through prophecy, there is no man wiser than

    Plato's Apology begins with the opening statements of Socrates. The jurymen's ears are still ringing with the sound of his accuser's well-crafted arguments, and the stage is set for Socrates to defend himself. The reputable orator surprisingly begins his defense by stating that he is not going to “toy with words” but will argue his case with the first words that come to mind (17c). The tension becomes evident as Socrates' systematic defense leads him to contradict his opening statements and undermine

    Apologies I can't apologize enough for this ugly piece of themewriting. Yes, I admit it, I wrote a standard themewriting paper. I started with a cute little introduction with my thesis sentence at the end of my introductory paragraph. Once I established my thesis statement I backed it up with the three magical points that were neatly wrapped up in three short paragraphs. I ended with a brilliant conclusion that only did what a standard themewriting paper does, I restated my introduction and what

    The Defense of Socrates

    • 1218 Words
    • 3 Pages

    The Defense of Socrates begins with Socrates stating he does not know if his fellow Athenians, his jury, have been persuaded by his accusers. This is a crucial statement because Socrates explains how of the many false claims that his accusers have made, one particularly can be proven as untrue. His accusers have sent out a warning that Socrates is a “clever” speaker and he clarifies that he would admit that he is an orator if a “clever speaker” is one who speaks the truth. (17b) He states that although

    1B. As Socrates takes the stand to defend himself against the Athenian government he began to explain why he should not be there and how he ended up at the stand in the first place. He cites an encounter with the oracle Delphi. He explains that he asked the oracle who was wisest of all men. The oracle replied that no man was wiser then Socrates (note this will be important later in describing his philosophy). Socrates knowing that he himself knew nothing and that there must be somebody out there

    1. Euthyphro first defines piety as to what he is doing now which is prosecuting his own father. This definition did not satisfy well with Socrates. Socrates explain that the definition is more like a pious action. He wants to know the form itself that makes pious actions pious. 2. Euthyphro next defines piety as what is dear to the gods is pious, what is not is impious. Socrates approves the definition but also said that it contradicts itself. There were errors for instance gods do not also see
