In this lecture, I cover in detail Socrates’ discussion with Crito about why it would be immoral to escape from jail, even though Socrates is unjustly condemned to death. At about the 39-minute mark, I begin to cover the Phaedo. This is the dialogue covering the day of Socrates’ death. In this introductory lecture, the distinction between the body and soul is covered, and I surprise the students by asking them to consider the possibility that their brain does not think (nor does mine or anyone’s!)
