Is it better to suffer evil or to do evil? Is it better to do something wrong and avoid being caught or to be caught and punished? Is pleasure the same as goodness? As the characters in the dialogue pursue these questions, the foundations of ethics and the nature of the good life come to light.

Great dialogue + good performance
Gorgias is a great Platonic dialogue. That is settled. What isn't is how to present a Socratic dialogue that sometimes meanders through dark wooded arguments and sometimes leaps in starts and fits. Overall, there is much of Jesus of Nazareth in Plato's Socratic dialogues. So if any could be called Plato's Sermon on the Mpunt, this is probably it. Though dealing with political topics, it hovers around personal morality and the importance of being earnest, even when jesting and pulling your interlocutor's leg.
