7Socrates Questioned people to inspire debate Socratic Method: KNOW YOURSELFWhat is known about him is largely gathered from Plato and Xenophon. Served in the Athenian Army. Heard voices that he claimed were the Gods. Spent much of his life in the Agora (market place) conversing ethical issues. Exposed hypocrisy, ignorance and conceit among his fellow Athenians. Not a proponent of Democracy. May have been seen as a trouble maker and persuading people to be tyrannical “socratified” youth. Charges: Socrates is guilty of refusing to recognize the gods recognized by the state, and of introducing new divinities. He is also guilty of corrupting the youth. The penalty demanded is death.Sentenced to death – Drinks Hemlock. Producing a gradual paralysis of the CNS.
