DISCUSSION ON 'THE APOLOGY" 2 Reply 1 I concur with this discussion on reasons behind Socrates' acceptance of the death penalty by taking lethal poison. Socrates seemed more than ready for that punishment. Some books describe the scenario as he took the poison that he made it smiling (Mahootian, 2015). This alone is an indicator of a man who was ready to die for the sake of what he believed in and had always advocated for. I like the way the discussion has illustrated him as a martyr of philosophy. It is right to say that through his death, he would inspire many people to think in his direction. This is because, if his philosophy was worth dying for, then it means there must have been some very high level of certainty in that philosophy. I think that Socrates used the trial to mock the faith of the people of Ancient Greece. They claimed to believe in life after death, yet feared to die!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
