Into the Wild

Read Apology Online Free - The Apology of Socrates is Plato's version of the speech given by Socrates as he unsuccessfully defended himself in 399BCE against the charges of "corrupting the young, and by not believing in the gods in whom the city believes, but in other daimonia that are novel" (24b). "Apology" here has its earlier meaning (now usually expressed by the word "apologia") of speaking in defense of a cause or of one's beliefs or actions.

The revised edition of this popular textbook features revised vocabulary and grammatical notes that now appear on the same page as the text, sentence diagrams, principal parts of verbs listed both by Stephanus page and alphabetically, word frequency list for words occurring more than twice, and complete vocabulary.

[Original review, Jan 11 2015] Apology of Charlie Hebdo To the Americans, who rule the world by brute military and economic force, while claiming they're doing it for our own good: fuck off. To the Russians, who pretend they're not just the same as the Americans, except militarily weaker and less ho...

Double Jeopardy “Be sure that if you kill the sort of man I say I am, you will not harm me more than yourselves.” *** “On the other hand, if I say that it is the greatest good for a man to discuss virtue every day, testing themselves and others — for the unexamined life is not worth living for me...

Θανάτωσαν τον Σωκράτη. Θανάτωσαν το αρχαίο ελληνικό πνεύμα. «Γιατί το να φοβάται κανείς το θάνατο, ω άνδρες Αθηναίοι, δεν σημαίνει τίποτε άλλο ή το ότι νομίζει πως είναι σοφός ενώ δεν είναι. Σημαίνει δηλαδή πως νομίζει ότι ξεύρει πράγματα που δεν ξεύρει. Γιατί τι είναι θάνατος, κανείς βέβαια δεν...

“Socrates is guilty of busying himself with research into what’s beneath the earth and in the heaven and making the weaker argument the stronger and teaching the same things to others” So Socrates is guilty of expanding his mind and teaching his discoveries to his students. Such a terrible man i...

Bir kere daha anladım ki yalan, iftira insanoğlunun mayasında var. Milattan önceki yıllarda dahi bilge insanlar otoriteler tarafından tehdit olarak görülüyordu. Sokrates’in hazin öyküsünü, kitabı okumadan önce de biliyordum ama savunmasını okuyunca çok etkilendim ve üzüldüm. Bu arada kitabın oldu...

Μια περίεργη λύπη σε πιάνει όταν διαβάζεις την συγκεκριμένη απολογία για το πόσο άδικος (η λέξη μπορεί να αντικατασταθεί με άλλες λιγότερο κόσμιες) είναι τελικά ο κόσμος. (Από τότε δεν ξέραμε να ψηφίζουμε)

Αν έκανα κάποια φράση αντιγραφή-επικόλληση από το βιβλίο, θα έπρεπε να το αντιγράψω ολόκληρο. Καταπληκτικό.

This little ‘book’, a mere conversation actually, is the source of so many excellent quotes as to be indispensable to our Western heritage. I was reading a few to my dear husband the other night and he wanted me to send them to him. Sadly, we—as a society—want to expunge this type of literature f...

This is one of the best works of philosophy or literature ever written. It is Plato's version of Socrates's defense at his trial. The word "apology" here means defense. Socrates is on trial for his life for blasphemy and for corrupting the youth of Athens. He very easily leads his primary accuser...
