This is an English translation of one of Plato’s great dialogues of Socrates talking about death, dying, and the soul due to his impending execution. Included is an introduction and glossary of key terms.

Focus Philosophical Library translations are close to and are non-interpretative of the original text, with the notes and a glossary intending to provide the reader with some sense of the terms and the concepts as they were understood by Plato’s immediate audience.

From the Back Cover:

This marvelously conceived new translation of Plato's most important dialogue will set the standard for classroom use for many years to come... The authors' imaginative new interpretation will inspire students and generate scholarly controversy - and is thus certain to accomplish what it suggests is the true aim of Socratic inquiry: the weaving, unweaving, and perpetual re-weaving of the Logos.

— Dr. George R. Lucas, Jr., Professor of Philosophy, US Naval Academy, Annapolis

Modern students can now appreciate the wisdom of the world’s greatest thinkers. Through clear, faithful translations, renowned scholars have made classical philosophical texts
accessible and inspirational.
