(4.6 stars; 141 reviews)

Plato's account of Socrates' defense at his trial for "corrupting the youth" is a classic summation of his teacher's life and mission, centered in Socrates' most famous line, "The unexamined life is not worth living." - Written by FrZeile (1 hr 15 min)


Sometimes, I feel like Socrates.

(5 stars)

I think, at times, we all do. Persecuted for telling the truth. For instance, the editorial rhetoriticions dividing the public to foment a civil war when the people should be clamoring-after being screwed by both parties for sixty years-for a system overhaul! And, The Great Reset: You won't own anything and you will be happy. D. Rockefeller's "Lock Step". Clade X. Event 201. Yeah. they haven't been hoping for co-morbid. Naw. Not them. Ordo Ab Chao- yep, not them! Excellent all around audio book!

(4 stars)

The text is 5 star. A great place to start (oddly enough at the end of Socrates' life) with Plato. It is challenging and engaging but accessible and relevant. Requiring the listener/reader to question wisdom and its perception. The reader does a fairly good job. He is clear and well paced if a little flat. But his recording is another story completely it is terrible the quality drops in and out and at times it sounds like we are all underwater!


(3.5 stars)

Easy to listen to, acceptable quality, clear diction. Changes in quality are at times bothersome and inflection could have been amplified for so passionate an oration. Overall pleasant to listen to and a beautifully translated version.


(5 stars)

Translated to easily understand. Good dramatic reading. Only complaint was the fluctuations of audio quality.
