Socrates online

So my Mom found these online Yale lectures here . There are many amazing topics, and I really recommend them. Through that I also found a series of great speeches from history. Last night I listened to Socrates' defense before the Athenian court. I enjoy Socrates a great deal - in his dialogues he is such a jerk all the time that he is enormously entertaining. And I guess the philosophy is important too. But after listening to his defense, I find it easy to imagine that I would have voted to make him drink from the cup too. Take a listen for yourself. You can find it on Itunes.
