      I've read "The Clouds". I find interesting that some jokes on the play ended up on the tribunal.

        Typical female "thinking". Needs to be given something before giving back.

          I don't know what you mean. It's just been a long time that I read the Apology, thus I can't quite recall the details.

            When he takes the poison and all his friends start crying he starts insulting them by calling them women

        It may not be Apology, it may be Phaedo. Those 4 blur a bit. If it is Phaedo then I apologize for the incorrect reference, when he drinks the poison some of his followers start to cry or something and Socrates flat out tells them he sent the women away already so there wouldn't be this kind of misbehavior or something along those lines.

          That was at the end of Phaedo.

          Yes, you're right. Now I recall it precisely.
          He even tell one of his followers that tomorrow his long hair is going to be cut. Since, as we know, it was part of their funeral rites shaving their heads or something, for your loved ones.

          There's also that thing about pouring ashes on your own head and stuff. Still on this part of burial costumes on ancient greece that I find it interesting.

      this is extrmley common in Athenian literature.
      The Oresteia might be the most sexist thing i have ever read
      It is like witnessing inverted Marian theology appear and only as a side note

        Women are not moral agents.

        The older I get, the less I regard them as anything but big children.

      No, that's the whole point. He'd rather die for what he believed in than live a lie.

      >no he wasnt sorry!!! that's the point!!!
      OK, why did he name the book "the apology" then

        Apology literally means 'in defense of', not 'i'm sorry for what I did'. Actual brainlet who doesn't understand language detected.

          Everyone says start with the Greeks. The real starting point is removing contemporary autistic literalism from words and language. There is no coming to terms with the author's meaning without this step.

          The Greek term Apologia is far removed from its modern usage so no fault should be levied.

    >Plato's apology makes Socrates out to be a Saint and martyr
    >Xenophon's version makes him out to be a snarky redditor
    Which one was the real Socrates?

      What I took from Aristophanes is that scatology is classically lit/, like it or not.
