He is one of my favorite philosophers also. As you're probably aware he is famous for saying "The unexamined Life is not Worth Living." One of my favorite quotes.At the time he was sentenced to die for "Corrupting the youth of Athens", he was attempting to determine the certainty of definitions. He had a unique and highly intelligent mind. Thanks for posting.

Pamela Mac Neil, you are quite right about Socrates. Some friends tried to help him escape from prison to another neighbouring country. But he refused and said how they knew that escaping would be better. Very interesting human being and a great philosopher.
