As the title suggests, the theme is the trial of the philosopher Socrates by the Athenians in... More > 399 B.C. Written in response to the fascist movements of the time, The Real Apology of Socrates presents a scathing attack on the political, social and religious institutions of 'Modern' Greece as seen through the sarcastic and often damning eyes of Socrates. In a surprising turn of events, Socrates reluctantly admits his guilt and accepts his fate.

More > Πλάτων[a] Plátōn pronounced [plá.tɔːn] in Classical Attic; 428/427 or 424/423[b] – 348/347 BC) was a philosopher in Classical Greece and the founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world.

Alfred North Whitehead once noted: "the safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato." Excerpt from:< Less

A few of the interlocutors appear several times. Typically Xenophon introduces the reason why he is writing about a particular conversation, and he will also occasionally interject a remark into the narrative, or at its conclusion.
