Phaedo

Phaedo is one of the best-known dialogues of Plato's middle period, along with the Republic and the Symposium. The philosophical subject of the dialogue is the immortality of the soul. It is set in the last hours prior to the death of Socrates, and is Plato's fourth and last dialogue to detail the philosopher's final days, following Euthyphro, Apology, and Crito.

Join us as we follow the dialectic discussion along between Socrates and his friends as Socrates explores various arguments for the soul's immortality in order to show that there is an afterlife in which the soul will dwell following death.
