Publisher’s Description: 

A new translation of Plato's four-part dialogue that eulogizes the genius of his mentor Socrates.
Plato's account of Socrates' trial and death in 399 BC represents a significant moment in Western literature as well as a watershed in the life of ancient Athens. In these four dialogues, Plato develops the Socratic belief in responsibility for one's self and shows Socrates- condemned to suicide by his fellow Athenians-living and dying under his own philosophy. In "Euthyphro," Socrates debates goodness outside the courthouse; "Apology" sees him in court, rebutting all charges of impiety; in "Crito," he refuses an entreaty to escape from prison; and in "Phaedo," Socrates faces his impending death with calmness and a skillful discussion of immortality.

Platos riveting account of the trial and death of Socrates, in a new translation by Christopher Rowe
