Socrates lived from 469- 399 BCE. As he was in his life for many, he remains an inscrutable, enigmatic individual who changed the world’s perceived philosophy.
Despite having written nothing, he is considered one of the handfuls of philosophers who changed the way philosophy is conceived forever.
Almost all information about him is second- hand and often vigorously disputed. The myth about his academic discipline and influence on people of every age reached fame due to his unfair trial and death at the orthodox Athenian society’s hands.
. Ironically, he is adulation with the reverence of some God by his admirers when he spent his whole life making people think about their ideas instead of blindly following anything.
He was convicted and executed for blasphemy towards the Gods, and now he is given the status of one.
He has a strong influence on the Western philosophical tradition and modern-day philosophers.
