Socrates Influence on Justice

Socrates Influence on Justice

Order Description

With Socrates, and in particular his understanding of miasma, we get a revamping of the idea of Justice that heavily influences our Western Civilization. This is especially instanced in both the Apology and Crito. In both of these works we are given an example of the Socratic idea of justice: in the ‘punishment phase’ of the trial; and in the reason that Socrates does not leave prison. Using one of these two instances, explain how Socrates changes the idea of justice and its influence on our Western Civilization. Please cite examples from all above texts.
