Publisher's Summary

A unique, courageous and dedicated seeker after the truth - and the greatest thinker of his time - Socrates has held his place as one of the most celebrated philosophers for over 2,300 years.Socrates created and embodied a living holistic philosophy that integrated mind, body, and soul. Concerned solely with ethics, he asked the timeless question that affects us all: What is the right way to live?Now, this clear and insightful audiobook presents a new, fully rounded portrait of Socrates' philosophy, life, and tragic death - drawing on the earliest, most authentic dialogues of Plato, but also on the more down-to-earth writings of Xenophon, another student of Socrates. Mark Forstater explains how Socrates was not just a thinker for 4th century BC Athens, but can still help us find meaning in this new and troubled century.
