Socrates - Last Days and Legacy
Ships in 3-5 business days
Who am I? Is my life largely unexamined? What are wisdom and virtue?What is the relationship of these questions to myself as an individual and as a participant in community?The play takes two themes, that of Socrates’ personal life and that of his legacy. Socrates’ life is a response to the being of his vision characterised in the play as Lady Justice. The culmination of Socrates’ life is his death and through this we are enabled to see his legacy which is the interrogative method. This gives the freedom to create informed answers to our own questions and to that of our time.
Throughout the play a commentator highlights the relevance of the Socratic method to the modern world while proposing his critical philosophy is needed even more now than during his lifetime.
