Under these unjust circumstances, Crito argues that Socrates has a duty to escape. Crito begins by appealing to Socrates as a friend saying, “If you die, it will not be a single misfortune for me. Not only will I be deprived of a friend…but many people…will think that I could have saved you if I were willing to spend money, but that I did not care to do so.”(44c) Socrates addresses
On his way to his death some might say he should escape since his trial is unjust. Some might argue, like Socrates, that it isn't right for him to escape and go against his word. His friend Crito is trying to argue the reasons why Socrates is in the right for escaping, while Socrates is arguing the opposite, why his morals will not allow him to do so. Socrates argues many things and makes very firm arguments. If escaping is not just then he should not do it.
As they speak, Socrates utilizes talk to demonstrate his inward difficulties and discover which way is the correct approach. On the off chance that he leaves now, what great would that do? Crito focuses on how that will prompt repercussions with his young and companions, yet Socrates isn 't sure anymore and is overwhelmed. Rather he turns the inquiry around, asking in what capacity will it be any better that he flees abandoning them with an imaginable more regrettable destiny. They will in any case grow up without him and may find him unworthy for his defiance toward the law.
Socrates was trying to link happiness and freedom together but Lysis refused to go along. The questioning is somehow dangerous because it might affect Lysis and make him mad at his family if he starts questioning his parents rule over him. Socrates points out that the boy is a total slave to his parents since everyone is controlling him. Socrates convinces Lysis that the only way out of this is through better knowledge and understanding. What is the point of being rich when everybody controls you?
Socrates was charged with corrupting the youths of society. Forcing them to think differently, to question things, pushing his strange ideas upon them. This was the considered to be the main reason for his trial, but in truth the assembly just wanted to rid society of Socrates, he was considered a threat for Athenes. Thanks to his ideals, the youths of Athens realised how Athenian democracy was lacking and how weak it was. Socrates’s words “ To start of the trial, Socrates went on to say that he will deal with one accusation at a time, and immediately he pointed out one of the accusations, “be careful not to be deceived by an accomplished speaker like me” (The Apology.
From the Apology, Plato shows how Socrates was unyielding in his morals. Any sensible person would have taken the choice to evade death and accepted the ignorant life was the best. However, Socrates defies this by stating the conjecture to the court that to fall to the swift wickedness is worse than death. With this, Plato is defining the logic of Socrates soul is right rather than the evident fact of what the court laws describe. In his passage of Crito, Plato examines the thought of honor in following through one’s own promise.
In Meno, we find that Socrates was charged with impiety and on his way to the courthouse, he finds Euthyphro. Euthyphro is charging his own father with Impiety, which is odd, because people don’t normally make charges against their own family over small issues; It violates social norms. To Socrates, this must mean that Euthyphro must have a definitive understanding of what Impiety means, if he’s bringing a charge against his own father. Which leads to the beginning of Socrates search for the universal definition of Piety, to help drop the charges that are being held against him. If he can find the universal definition of piety, he would be able to defend himself in on trial.
They do not have time to enjoy their life because of they always on self-defend for things they do wrong. In Plato’s dialogue Gorgias, Socrates takes this position to an extreme. He argues that it is much better to suffer wrong than to do it; that a good man who has his eyes gouged out and is tortured to death is more fortunate than a corrupt person who has used wealth and power
New accusers say that Socrates corrupts the youth and does not believe in the gods of the State, and has new divinities of his own. To defend himself against these charges, Socrates asks Meletus some questions. As a result, Meletus is shown to be contradicting himself and making accusations that are absolutely absurd. To the question “Who are the improvers of the youth?” Meletus replies that they are all citizens, but not Socrates, arguing that he is only one who is corrupting them. At the same time, he recognizes that no one would intentionally make the people worse because he is obliged to live among them.
In life it is easy to trust your friends, they are there for you and always have your back. But if you 've got a feeling your friend doesn’t have your back, is just using you, or is trying to turn you away from your other friends and family, when is enough going to be enough for you stop believing them? In Shakespeare 's play Othello, he teaches that a person is completely blind to manipulation when it comes from their friends. Othello demonstrates perfectly how people are more trusting of friends and blind to their manipulation. Iago lies to Othello and at first he doesn 't believe him, but Iago is a close friend so, Othello lets Iago convince him that he is telling the truth.
