    The first two dialogues are worthwhile in considering the notion of citizenship, honesty, and virtue. The Phaedo, however, is insufferably tedious to read. While useful as a vocabulary-building tool, the argument that Socrates proposes rests entirely on barriers of linguistic binaries (such as contraries like “sleeping” and “waking,” “worse” and “better”), and frankly outdated notions of memory and perception. Because it presupposes too many assumptions to be worthwhile, I only f [...]

    This is excellent window to Socratic thinking. Presented with the possibility of his own death he chose the road less taken. Socrates incredible trial set the scene for deep thinking in the Western tradition, about the value of philosophy and how it changes people and their values, but it's no less a deep consideration of matters of life and death. And even metaphysical matters.Socrates has been accused to being an atheist, which he completely denied. He also denied corrupting the youth of the t [...]

    This is an amazing book of philosophy and trial of Socrates, the man considered to be the Father of World Philosophy. The book is written by Plato, one of the staunch devoted pupil of Socrates and prominent ancient philosopher. The book is nothing but the translation of three of Plato’s works namely, “The Apologia”, “The Crito” and “The Phaedo” all of which have reference to the trial, imprisonment and death of Socrates. The first part represents the trial of Socrates in the court [...]

    Este livro despertou o meu interesse por filosofia, tinha 17 anos quando li esta historia, na altura era uma versão muitíssimo resumida da Guimarães editores, 4 anos se passaram e afinal, existe outras versões bastante mais completas, grandes pormenores me escaparam na altura. Duvidas sobre a existência da alma de cada um são assuntos esclarecidos por Sócrates, por exemplo É um livro absolutamente fabuloso, RECOMENDO !

    Sócrates, para Cebes:- Decerto compreenderias, penso eu, que, ao afirmares que um homem é maior ou mais pequeno por causa da cabeça, não terias de responder a um objector que te dissesse, antes de mais, que era pela mesma coisa que o maior é maior e o mais pequeno é mais pequeno e, depois, concluísse ser pela cabeça, que é pequena, que o maior é o maior, sendo prodigioso que um homem seja grande por causa de uma coisa pequena. Não recearias tais objecções?- Sim - respondeu Cebes, ri [...]

    Thrilling read, specially Phaedo! It's definitely a must read for cynics like myself who find themselves left about and alone in the world pondering why isn't everyone so reasonable, we find a companion in socrates and his friends. I think i am going to go back to this book again and again.

    I think Plato's "Apology" and "Crito" are especially important texts for modern readers, given the current corruption of democracy and the revelations of states surveilling their own citizens. Plato's "Apology" recounts Socrates' trial on the charge that he corrupts the youth. He endeavours to persuade the court that the charges against him are false, but he's sentenced to death by the voice of the masses. "Crito" tells of Crito's pleading with Socrates to escape from Athens before he must die, [...]

    This book was an anecdote by Socrates friends before he was sentenced to death by drinking the poisonous hemlock. Socrates reflections upon his sentence which has been passed upon him, and as explicit to his belief that in going to his death he is only passing to a better happiness in life.While the CritoSocrates conversation with a friend named Crito who had been present on his trial, and upon his death. Crito offered to assists Socrates in paying fine, and ensuring his safety if he adopt a mea [...]

    A quick, intellectual read. I didn't rate it higher because I didn't consider it enjoyable as much as I did intriguing. I think the biggest take-away is that logical reasoning is a great way to approach certain problems, but it can still lead to some very wrong conclusions if the line of reasoning doesn't begin with pure fact.I'll accept Socrates' proof of the immortal soul, and his statement about absolute duty to one's country, but many of the other conclusions (description of the underworld, [...]

    It's no wonder Socrates was so revered in his time: he's damnably clever; and the methodical way in which he reaches his conclusions are such fun to follow that even were you not to agree with him, as I often didn't, you couldn't help but wish you did. Sure, confident, unflagging in stoic persistence -- would anyone want to argue? You just want to listen.Phaedo is probably the least relevant to modern readers. A belief in Greek mythology forms the basis of the men's speculation on death, so if S [...]

    To me 'Apology' and 'Crito' are readable (though I disagree with Socrates on several points, particularly on one's duties to society) but Phaedo is a huge mess. The one ultimate lesson that I extract from these dialogues is: first make sure that your axioms and premises are correct before you build your arguments on them. Otherwise you're only compiling one muddled thought upon another, presenting the whole sequence as a valid argument when in fact it is assertion by obfuscation. Basically: GIGO [...]

    It seems ridiculous to rate Plato's dialogues, especially since these three (Apology, Crito, and Phaedo) are our closest historical link to Socrates, the father of Western philosophy. I'm sure I tried reading these dialogues 30 years ago but didn't have the proper mindset. Coming to them now provided me enlightenment on too many levels to discuss, but I will note what most intrigued me: Plato's account of Socrates' arguments for the immortality of the soul, discussed with his cohorts during the [...]

    Plato has got to be one of the most noble lunatics who ever lived. I've never seen anyone look so good coming up with so many right conclusions in the most ridiculous, nonsensical ways possible -- and for that I love him. Not essential reading, by any means; but certainly worth reading simply to have read Plato.The Apology and Crito were brilliant; Phaedo -- out of which I expected the most -- was half silly.

    Carol Spears
    Once you determine that you cannot know what happens to the soul until you die, what is there left to be said? This book just goes on and on and on about it. I couldn't bring myself to finish "Phaedo" due to being unable to read the text through the tears of my discomfort/angst.Is it that Plato didn't get it and needed to go on and on about it?

    Jeff
    Apology and Crito were worthwhile reads, exploring the nature of citizenship, virtue, education, etc. Phaedo on the other hand is incredibly tedious as Plato tries to prove the immortality of the soul by logical proofs and mathematical binary philosophy. Definitely a good read, but long and drawn out. Great for philosophy geeks, but probably a bit too long for the average reader.

    I remember reading this in college or high school but it's the recommended start for the great books 10 year classics reading program so I read it again. I was a nice reminder about the power of questions. Not to mention, the reminder that life should be examined on a regular basis. "The unexamined life is not worth living."

    Bcoghill Coghill
    Written in 1938, it is somewhat out of date but oddly more accepting of reality and the discoveries of the past 2,000 years then other English scholastics like the ever popular C.S. Lewis.I just got this from the library to reread Phaedo but enjoyed all of the editors comments and the forward.

    Damien
    Apology and Crito I got through quickly however Phaedo tripped me up and I had to spend an immense amount of time. Glad to have finally finished it. I am working through all of the Harvard Classics and I am proud of myself for making it through and finding understanding in this book.

    Mohamed
    never really got past the 100 , the book has alot of interesting ideas and ideals , just the way they are presented is too damn boring and repetitive , platos conversation method is really mono directional and that is really boring

    Brian
    There you have it! The justification for the great books program: for discussing great ideas. Let's face it, we humans don't know didly squat. And what we think we know is for the most part what we don't know. Always examine, always question, always seek virtue and truth.

    refreshing my student years reading. walking back to the future, love to be away from the presence. But careful its very important what translations do you choose to read. they are all different. and sure, unfortunately, i do not read classic greek.

    Karin
    I admit it, I'm a philosophy geek, although I usually end up arguing with much of the books so don't read them often. Even if I disagreed with a lot, the writing is brilliant and there is a lot of food for thought.

    Jeff Pietrzyk
    I'm reading Plato as part of my journey through the Great Books Project. It's important to know your roots. I feel enriched having read this. Crito, specifically, challenged my thoughts regarding citizenship and my place in my community.

    April
    I did it! Apology and Crito were interesting enough but Phaedo just kept going and going seemingly with no end. Feeling so relieved to be done! The soul being harmony thing piqued my mind in Phaedo. Worth re-reading that part.

    Ross Cohen
    Less studied than "The Republic", these essays present Plato's Socrates at his best, showing admirable grace and courage under pressure.

    Thought provoking!

    My first experience with ancient Greek philosophy. I greatly enjoyed reading each dialogue, and look forward to reading many more. It's like candy for my brain!
