The Confessions of Socrates

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Socrates sits chained to a wall in a small prison cell. In a month he will die of hemlock poisoning. At night, by the light of a tiny oil lamp, on rolls of paper smuggled in by loyal friends, he tells his three sons the story of his life.

He writes vividly about the people and events that shaped him as a person. The mother who encouraged his questions. Teachers who promoted the Greek ideals of courage and glory. Bloody battles. Lifelong friends lost and enemies made. Being proclaimed the world’s wisest man.

Fearing his sons may follow in his ill-fated path, Socrates honestly reveals his thoughts and feelings, his successes and his failures, and his search for the answer to the ultimate question—how can I be happy?

Customer Reviews

Not Complex as you think it might be!

I really did enjoy this book. For awhile it seemed to become very wordy. In all, I found it fascinating. That includes the very beginning and the authors notes. For a time, I was there. Walking the dusty paths, fighting in battles and enjoying my time in the world of Socrates.
