Publisher's Summary

Socrates is in prison, sentenced to die when the sun sets. In this final conversation, he asks what will become of him once he drinks the poison prescribed for his execution. Socrates and his friends examine several arguments designed to prove that the soul is immortal. This quest leads him to the broader topic of the nature of mind and its connection not only to human existence but also to the cosmos itself. What could be a better way to pass the time between now and the sunset?

Wonderful

I'm a college student and am doing a paper on Socrates. This was very helpful in speeding up the reading process. The narrator's voice was hard to listen to at first, but I got used to it and ended up loving it near the end. Would recommend to anyone wanting to listen to Plato's works

a must hear!

This classic work has never been more needed than today. The fear of death and notion of happiness through materialism is easily demolished by Socrates /Plato . I found myself thinking this should be required reading or hearing for the baby boomer generation. The performance was outstanding!
