Brief review: History calls Socrates as the wisest man ever to have born on earth. He lived over 2,500 years ago. There is so much wisdom in his teachings. He lived without fear and willingly accepted his death sentence. The book is written by Plato, a follower of Socrates. The philosophy discussed is relevant even to modern life and society. Only a man with a clear thinking can have such clear understanding of life. In the book you will find Socrates talking about justice, education, government, wealth, poverty, virtue and other things. The book is for matured readers only. It is content rich and you will need extreme focus to understand it. It's worth the read.
