Spend the day in Good Company studying Plato’s dialogue titled the Apology, describing the Trial of Socrates.


Experience the brilliant and unique way in which Socrates argues and the wisdom contained in this dialogue, including:


“The difficulty, my friends, is not in avoiding death, but in avoiding unrighteousness; for that runs faster than death.”


“For to fear death, my friends, is only to think ourselves wise without really being wise, for it is to think that we know what we do not know. For no one knows whether death may not be the greatest good that can happen to man.”


“The true champion of justice, if he intends to survive even for a short time, must necessarily confine himself to private life and leave politics alone.”


And finally, the great Philosophical classic,


“The unexamined life is not worth living.”
