What's the big idea? Socrates argues that there are reasons to believe the soul is immortal and will live on after the body’s death. This dialogue tells us how Socrates spent the last day of his life with several friends, and how he met his end. Though soon to take a fatal drink of poison, Socrates insisted on discussing the soul and tried to prove its immortality.

The most engaging audiobook I have ever given a listen!
This work, written centuries ago, still has the pier that take a proverbial wooden spoon to your synapses and stir them into a delightful concoction. It makes you think in a most pleasurable and delightful way. I’d recommend this to any homeschool teachers who want to teach their children not only how to think, but to approach an argument with unassailable logic and dogged persistence.
