This Supplement to the Apology of Socrates and The Crito is built for teachers. The book gives the same text as the student textbook of The Apology of Socrates & The Crito, and then provides a lot of critical thought from many sources, organized around a series of questions a smart student might ask; the answers come from many sources. Socrates has had perhaps as many detractors as proponents down through history. Plus a Glossary for Greek names of people, gods, and events, and a Bibliography. The Supplement also includes a second account, secondhand, by Xenophon of the Apology of Socrates.
The Supplement material serves as background material for The Apology of Socrates and The Crito; it is not designed for pop quizzes with definitive answers.
The trial of Socrates, the most famous trial in history, is reported by an eyewitness, his friend Plato. Of all of Plato's dialogues, this one comes closest to representing the real Socrates, the questioner, rather than serving as a vehicle for Plato's own philosophy. The Crito which follows shows Socrates justifying his own death as part of the civic bargain.
