∙ Classics & Latin

In Socrates, Gwen Hunter examines the Socratic method of seeking wisdom against the background of pre-Socratic philosophy. Important aspects of the historical and political context of Socrates trial and his death sentence are explained in a clear and accessible way. PlatoÂs four dialogues on the death of Socrates  the Euthyphro, Apology, Crito and Phaedo  are carefully discussed and the student is guided through the intricacies of each of these texts, which are our primary source of knowledge about the Socratic method. An analysis of the various views about the philosopher and a short review of his influence on contemporary and subsequent thinking complete the coverage of this section of the Year 13 Classical Studies course.
