Socrates and Athens, Paperback Book


An exciting series that provides students with direct access to the ancient world by offering new translations of extracts from its key texts. Socrates is one of the ancient Greeks that everyone has heard of.

He is responsible, more than any other individual, for adding a new urgency and vigour to the fundamental questions we ask about our own lives.

Socrates, it turns out, was always rather mysterious, and intentionally so.

He was more interested in making people think than in telling them what to think.

Part of the Greece and Rome: Texts and Contexts series, this book helps readers to discover the original Socrates.
