In Plato’s dialog, Socrates, the great Greek philosopher, gets prosecuted by the state and put in jail for a death sentence. The charges are being impiety and corrupting the youth. Although, that might be right, people thought that he was prosecuted unjustly. During the last days in prison, Crito, Socrates’s friend, was able to get in the prison and tells Socrates that he should escape with him. Socrates tells him that he should give Socrates good reasons to why Socrates should escape with him. They go back and forth with the arguments. As expected Socrates win the he decides to say in the prison and face death. By analyzing Socrates’s premises, I think that Socrates had a weak truth to the premises, but they strongly connect to his conclusion.
