Phaedo - Plato - A Short Summary & Review


A short summary of Phaedo:

The details of the death of Socrates.

My favorite Plato quote from the book:

"The circle of nature is not complete unless the living come from the dead as well as pass to them."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Do you love wisdom?

Do you fear death?

My review of Phaedo:

A must-read classic.

Life and death rhetoric.

I hope I can meet my death so calmly.
