  • Socrates: the First Educator to Drink Himself to Death

    10
    So, since Socrates was a great philosopher and had all of his friends there in his prison cell who were willing to break him out of jail, why did he say he HAD to drink the cup of hemlock? The show uses statements from his pupil, Plato, about what went on and demonstrates the Socratic Method of getting the student to come up with the solution to the problem by good questioning. Robert Culp, John Cassavetes, . Marshall, and other faces will look familiar in this Sidney Lumet production. Enjoy!moreless
