Socrates’ Death •In BC, when Socrates was 70 years old, he was brought to trial on the charge of impiety, convicted by an Athenian jury consisting of jurors and sentenced to death. •Socrates refused to escape from prison, even though he was given the opportunity to do so. •Socrates died in prison one month after his trial by.

    Socrates imagines himself with this kind of choice, confronted by the possibility that he might be put to death by the jury. Socrates says, ‘Look, supposing you offered me the choice to survive but give up philosophy, or to carry on philosophising and be put to death. I choose the second: death is preferable to giving up philosophy.’.   Socrates's death in BCE has figured largely in our world ever since, shaping how we think about heroism and celebrity, religion and family life, state control and individual freedom, the distance of intellectual life from daily activity -- many of the key coordinates of Western culture. In this book, Emily Wilson analyzes the enormous and enduring power the trial and death of Socrates .

It is set in the last hours prior to the death of Socrates, and is Plato's fourth and last dialogue to detail the philosopher's final.

After some silence Socrates turned to Cebes, and said: Dear Cebes, as you have now got more just ideas of the nature of immortal beings, what do you think of the poets, who often make a god envious of the merit of a mortal, and an enemy to him from mere malice.
