Socrates on Trial Review Gadfly of the State: Socrates questioned citizens to try to get them to realize their ignorance and improve morally  He questioned others and himself so that he could know himself and other people could be able to know themselves also.  Oracle at Delphi: “Know thyself.”  Socrates believes that in order to reach the best life we must know ourselves, and examine out own lives. Socrates' Purposes  His purposes were to educate the jurors and defend himself against the charges. Socrates' Trial  Accusations: corruption of the youth , doer of evil, created new divinities of his own (impiety) - the only real charge *on test*  As he was going around talking and questioning people, he created enemies and hatred because he embarrassed them.  Meletus ( one of the accusers) - believes that all Athenians improves the children and that Socrates is the only person corrupting the youth. He claims that Socrates is atheist but later claims that he believes in demigod/ spirits which contradicts each other. If he doesn’t believe in a god, how can he believe in demigods?…  As Socrates is on trial , he isn’t worried about death, but if what he is doing is right or wrong.  He rather listen to God than listen to the jury.  He vowed that he would not change his ways even if he was acquitted.  He believed that they will end up injuring themselves more than him if they killed him.  He claims that he is poor because he hasn’t collected money and is committed to God.  He says that he could not have corrupted the youth, because he has taught everyone there and none of them can say that he corrupted their children. Jury finds Socrates guilty  Socrates believes he deserves a good consequence because he cannot go anywhere else because he cannot hold back on teaching more people about their ignorance and virtue. He believes that it is his divine command. Jury condemns Socrates to Death  Socrates believes that death is a good thing because he will be able to go on a journey to a new place , and he will be able to converse with other people who have been killed by unjust judgements.  Believes that “no evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death.”
