Apology (Annotated)


The Apology is Plato's version of the oration given by Socrates as he defended himself in 399 BC  against the charges of "corrupting the young, and by not believing in the gods in whom the city believes, but in other daimonia that are novel" (24b). "Apology" here has its earlier meaning (now usually expressed by the word "apologia") of speaking in defense of a cause or of one's beliefs or actions (from the Greek ἀπολογία). The general term apology, in context to literature, defends a world from attack (opposite of satire-which attacks the world).
This edition has formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents.  It has also been extensively annotated, with additional information about Apology and also Plato, including an overview, plot, opening, information on the accusers, dialogue, interpretations, biographical information about Plato and his philosophy
