Philosophy 101 Paper #1 Part One: Crito’s first argument used in attempt to persuade Socrates to escape from prison centers around the negative things that will affect him if Socrates allows himself to be executed. Crito claims that he will not only lose a friend, but that people will think he was not willing to spend enough money to save Socrates. Crito fears that people who do not know him well will believe him to be a man who cares more about money then his friends, and says that there cannot be a worse reputation then that. Crito’s second argument is that by letting himself be executed, Socrates is abandoning his sons. He says that by dying, Socrates is leaving them orphaned and uneducated, thus showing no care for their fate. Lastly, Crito says that the friends Socrates will leave behind will be viewed as shameful cowards for not doing more to save their friend. Part Two: Socrates begins his counterargument by saying that Crito should not care what everyone else thinks.
