Socrates And Athenian Society In His Day: A Biographical Sketch
A. D. GodleyISBN: 0766195929;
1896. This work is not intended for classical scholars or professed Platonists; but rather for the large and increasing class of students who do not wish to be debarred altogether from an acquaintance with Greek literature by their ignorance of the Greek language. For the benefit of such readers I have endeavored, with the help of extracts selected mostly from Plato, to draw a picture of Socrates' relation to his immediate entourage and to Athenian society in general. Contents: Athens Before and After the Persian Wars; The Part Played by Socrates in History; Socrates in Plato's Dialogues: The Sophists; The Better Teachers of the Time: Gorgias and Protagoras; The Worse Teachers: Euthydemus and Thrasymachus; Socrates Among the Young: Lysis and Charmides; The Symposium; The Xenophontic Socrates; The Clouds; Trial and Death of Socrates; and The Story of Er.
