His DEATH Set Off the Age Of Philosophy: Socrates - Phaedo by Plato - Harvard Classics - HC2 Ep6

The Cause - Rob Pirie

02-10-2023 • 17 mins

The death of Socrates set off the age of philosophy. It also set off the search for the soul. In the story of Phaedo we dive into Socrates' ideas on the existence of the soul before life begins and what happens to it after it ends. In the last minutes of Socrates's life after drinking the poisonous hemlock we watch as Socrates calmly accepts his fate and dies with courage and peace. His death is an important part of philosophy and is a sign of the times. We must not lose sight of what is true and virtuous and we have to instill reason back into society if we hope for it to function in a just way.  I hope you enjoy the story of Phaedo by Plato as we read through the Harvard Classics.
