Publisher's Summary

The Apology of Socrates, by Plato, is the dialogue that presents the speech of legal self-defense, which Socrates presented at his trial for corruption in 399 BC.
Specifically, The Apology of Socrates is a defense against the charges of "corrupting the young" and "not believing in the gods which the city believes in, but in other gods which are unknown" to Athens.
The Apology of Socrates is the dialogue that depicts the trial, written by Plato, who details the final days of the philosopher Socrates.
This book has been carefully adapted into modern English to allow for easy listening.
