Completely worth listening to, hearing a dialogue from two people is the way it should be done and Ray Childs rocks at it! Fantastic opportunity to hear many dialogues with the same voice of Socrates
Timeless, what is deceptively simple is a profoundly complex affair. What is piety, our duties to the Gods and by extension our parents? To get to there, the larger question that will haunt us through all the other dialogues: what can we know in this life but that which is good? The justly good and best life, Eudaemonism. Ultimately we are our own and necessary arbiters. To live fulfilled, we seek justice, but what is that really...
The acting is smooth and provocative, sacrificing sarcasm in the written for inquisitiveness in conversation. This is a good place to start and could not have been an accidental choice to begin the Dialogues.
This troupe does a great job of bringing the characters to life, and making the arguments digestible. The translation is thoroughly modern, but does a masterful job of capturing the meaning of the concepts at work, and the attitudes of the characters.
