        Lecture Details

        Introduction to Political Philosophy (PLSC 114) In the Apology, Socrates proposes a new kind of citizenship in opposition to the traditional one that was based on the poetic conception of Homer. Socrates is a philosophical citizenship, relying on ones own powers of independent reason and judgment. The Crito, a dialogue taking place in Socrates prison cell, is about civil obedience, piety, and the duty of every citizen to respect and live by the laws of the community. 0000 - Chapter 1.
