Editorial Reviews

Book Description

Plato's Crito is an investigation of morality and justice. It presents a dialogue which takes place in Socrates' prison cell, where he awaits execution. He is visited by his friend Crito who has made arrangements to smuggle him out of prison. Socrates, however, reasons that this would be the wrong moral choice, and that he should act justly rather than selfishly. This edition of the Crito was first published in 1888, with a second edition published in 1891. It is now on its sixteenth printing. The text is given in full, in the original Greek with an introduction and notes. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Crito was an elderly friend of Socrates who tried to persuade Socrates to escape from the prison where he was to be executed for the crime of "corrupting the youth" of Athens. This ancient story is presented by Plato in dialogue format, which makes it easy to follow (it is an English translation of the original Greek text, which I taught my students to read during my faculty years at Geneva College). All truly educated people should be acquainted with this classic story of Socrates' fidelity to his core principles. I highly recommend it.
