The Plot to Save Socrates is a time travel novel by Paul Levinson, first published in 2006. Starting in the near future, the novel also has scenes set in the ancient world and Victorian New York. The Plot to Save Socrates deals primarily with the concept of time travel, and while the novel rarely discusses time travel directly, it poses several questions about its validity and possibility (or lack thereof).

Although some of Plato’s work has been criticised for its abstract nature, it still remains a key influence in western philosophical thought. Translators such as Averroes, would also be of principal importance to allow the work of Aristotle and Plato to become attainable to the western world, and spark future deliberations. As a result, the influence on future religious philosophy would be continued indefinitely as his dialogues serve as an entry and invitation of thought for readers.

Socrates: the first martyr of philosphy. Then the democrats recapture Athens, kill Critias, and arrest Socrates as the supposed intellectual source of the revolt. By Will Durant I see him, in the oldest tale told of him, standing in the snow outside his tent on the night before the battle of Potidaea. They cannot charge him with political heresy, which is no crime in Athens; they charge him, deviously, with irreligion by which they mean that he has rejected the crowded pantheon of Greece and believes there is only one God.

Phaedrus, Ion, Gorgias and Symposium, with Passages from the Republic and Laws, translated by Lane Cooper. With one great difference: Plato did not believe in a personal resurrection, and for him the task was to build a human society that would not execute those who should be the moral leaders.

Socrates even argues fervently against breaking any laws and against having willingly committed crimes in the face of his Athenian accusers. The fact that Socrates’ death was a result of his extreme obedience to Athenian statues and court decisions, coupled with his philosophy on never committing crimes highlights the fact that he was not attempting to practice civil disobedience. and So one must never do wron. or must one, when wrong, inflict wrong in return, as the majority believe, since one must never do wrong (Plato 50–52).

This volume, first published by Oxford University Press, was intended to introduce students with a modicum of Greek to those Plato dialogues concerned with Socrates immediately prior to his execution. It presents the whole of Apology and Crito, along with selections from Phaedo. They appear partly in the original Greek and partly in translation. The texts are supported by annotation and by a Greek vocabulary.
