Introduction. The Apology of Socrates takes its name from Plato’s version of the defense speech (Greek, apologia) given by Socrates at his date of its composition is unknown, but the work is generally believed to have been composed after the publication of Polycrates’s Accusation of Socrates (c. ) but before Plato’s first voyage to Sicily (). Plato’s Apology is a narrative of the famous speech of Socrates that is made during his trial. Instead of apologizing, Socrates attempts to defend himself and his actions.

Socrates - The protagonist of The Apology, as well as all of Plato's other dialogues. Socrates seems to be a very simple man, not having many material possessions and speaking in a plain, conversational manner. However, this seeming plainness is all a part of the ironic characteristic of Socrates' method. Plato's Apology purports to be essentially a transcript of Socrates's defense speech. Some scholars argue that it is Plato 's idealized version of Socrates, and as such, is a fiction. Other scholars argue that, if not in actual speech, in other important ways, the dialogue is an accurate representation of the historical event.

The Apology is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he defended himself in BC against the charges of "corrupting the young, and by not believing in the gods in whom the city believes, but in other daimonia that are novel". "Apology" here has its earlier meaning of speaking in defense of a cause or of one's beliefs or actions.   Free kindle book and epub digitized and proofread by Project Gutenberg.

Socrates' Defense How you have felt, O men of Athens, at hearing the speeches of my accusers, I cannot tell. The Apology. by: Plato. Plato's The Apology is an account of the speech Socrates makes at the trial in which he is charged with not recognizing the gods recognized by the state, inventing new deities, and corrupting the youth of Athens.

Socrates' speech, however, is by no means an "apology" in our modern understanding of the word. The Apology of Socrates, by the philosopher Plato (– BC), was one of many explanatory apologia about Socrates’s legal defence against accusations of corruption and impiety; most apologia were published in the decade after the Trial of Socrates ( BC).[3] As such, Plato’s Apology of Socrates is an early philosophic defence of /5(21).

The Apology of Socrates, as the title suggests, is to first (Protasis) an apology, but it is also an accusation of the Athenians, for having such a man dragged to court. And severity of the charge is hidden by moderation (you epieikei) of the apology, for what he says in his defense is an accusation of the Athenians.

The Apology of Socrates by Plato was thought to have been written following Socrates trial and death in BC.

It is one of many such accounts of this infamous trial. It is only through the Apology that we are today able to learn more about this most venerable Greek philosopher, Socrates, as he left very little written work himself. As a 5/5(1). The Apology of Socrates is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he unsuccessfully defended himself in BCE against the charges of "corrupting the young, and by not believing in the gods in whom the city believes, but in other daimonia that are novel" (24b)/5.

Specifically, the Apology of Socrates is a defence against the charges of "corrupting the youth" and "not believing in the gods in whom the city believes, but.

In his book ‘The Apology’, the Greek philosopher Plato provides a version of Socrates speech during his trail a courtroom in Athens. Plato, being Socrates’ wrote the Apologetics to show how the great philosopher defended himself against the charges brought to the court by his accusers around BC.

The Apology is believed to be the most authentic account that has been preserved of Socrates' defense of himself as it was presented before the Athenian Council.

It is in essential harmony with the references to the trial that occur in Plato's other dialogs and also with the account given in Xenophon's Memorabilia. The Apology of Socrates by Plato was thought to have been written following Socrates trial and death in BC.

It is one of many such accounts of this infamous trial. It is only through the Apology that we are today able to learn more about this most venerable Greek philosopher, Socrates, as he left very little written work himself. As a 3/5(10). The Apology of Socrates was written by Plato.

In fact, it's a defensive speech of Socrates that he said in a court noted down by Plato. The main subject of the speech is a problem of the evil. Socrates insists that neither death nor death sentence is evil/5(9). Plato's Apology is one of the most famous and admired texts in world literature.

It offers what many scholars believe is a fairly reliable account of what the Athenian philosopher Socrates ( BCE - BCE) said in court on the day that he was tried and condemned to death on charges of impiety and corrupting the : Emrys Westacott.
