Information about Socrates can be found in his contemporaries: in the dialogues written by Plato, one of Socrates' students; Ksenafona in the works; in the works of Aristophanes and Aristotle (see. I mentioned Socrates). However, Socrates, Aristophanes says in the context of a satirical attack on the philosophers and does not actually reflect the life of Socrates.
Parents were philosopher sculptor Safranisk and grandmother Fenareta. In Socrates' wife was Xanthippe, who bore him three sons: Lempokla, Safraniska and Meneksena. Traditionally, it considered to be evil shrew Xanthippe, mainly due to its performance in Ksenafona.
remains unclear how Socrates earned a living. According to the product Ksenafona "Symposium", Socrates is supposed to have said that he had devoted himself, he considers the most important activity, namely the discussion of philosophy.
Due to the fact that everything about Socrates, we can judge only by according to his contemporaries, it is very difficult to separate the views of Socrates on the position of the authors of the works.
Court and death
«death of Socrates" by Jacques-Louis David
In 399 BC Socrates was accused in the fact that it creates new gods and corrupts youth.
According to Socrates' speech before the court that in his "Apology of Socrates" offers Plato, the philosopher was "going blind" to Athens after his each Herefon requests Delphic oracle whether there is someone smarter than Socrates. The oracle replied that no such people. Socrates, seeing it as a riddle, I decided to find someone smarter than yourself. He interviewed the men in Athens on their knowledge of the goodness, beauty, and dignity. Determining that they do not know anything, but think they know a lot, Socrates came to the following conclusion: it can be considered very reasonable, as "knows" that he knew nothing. Intelligent advantage Socrates forced the famous Athenians, with whom he spoke publicly, feel stupid, that certainly set them against the philosophy led to his accusation of crimes.
Yet Socrates was found guilty and sentenced to death. Philosopher drank the poison from fiyaly and died in the presence of their friends. In the "Phaedo" dialog is described that Socrates met his death calmly, courageously accepting the verdict of the court.
Ksenafonam According to Plato, Socrates was in the possibility of escape, as his supporters gathered to bribe a prison guard. However, after that Socrates would have been forced to leave Athens. And he refused to escape.
Socrates method
Perhaps the most significant Sakratavym contribution to Western culture is considered his dialectical method of investigation, also known as the Socratic Method. This method was first described by Plato in the Socratic dialogues. Philosopher interlocutor put a series of questions to help him identify the position. This allowed them to check the validity of their thoughts. Socrates once said that "the greatest human skill - ask questions to himself and others"
Sakratava ethics
Socrates believed that people should focus on self-development, rather than the pursuit of material things.. According to Socrates, the moral person can be only when he knows what is good. Knowledge and morality are inseparable for him. "Someone who knew the good and the bad, nothing will force to act differently than they require knowledge and intelligence is strong enough to help a person»
