really liked it

This is a rare rewrite of a review I previously wrote. It is a good and thoughtful book. A serious portrayal of the the intellectual elite of the time. It defines the role of man as relates to societal interaction. It laments the fact that the execution of Socrates was unnecessary and not justified by the standards of his days. He met his faith due more to his mocking the 500 man jury of his peers.
The book does remind me of college days, but I find it more readable today...................
