    The Examined Life Examined: An Investigation of Socrates as Characterized in the "Forgotten" Dialogues and Apology by Albert, Samantha

    My goal in this paper is to produce a more “multi-dimensional” characterization of Socrates by examining several “forgotten” Platonic dialogues. The intention of this paper is to produce a more comprehensive characterization of Socrates so as to examine whether Athens was justified in ultimately trying Socrates and putting him to death. I seek to assess how these “forgotten” dialogues shed light upon the conflict between Socrates and Athens and fundamentally how they elucidate the conflict between philosophy and politics. Understanding these conflicts contributes to a better understanding of Socrates, his method of enquiry, and his ability to teach others. I ultimately conclude that the condemnation of Socrates in Apology may be misguided in the sense that the Athenian jury fails to understand that conversing about ideas that bring one closer to wisdom is not a corrupting act, but instead an enlightening act. Philosophy and politics, while fundamentally in tension with each other, can and should coexist if one desires to live the fully examined life.
