‘Socrates’, is the classic testimony of the most remarkable period of Greek history (Peloponnesian War period). Thestory dawns with the era of the staunchly democratic leader Pericles and his years of contribution towards the society of Athens and culminates when Socrates, the brilliant thinker, is sentenced to death by a venom quaff.

The Greeks are known for their superior body built, and exquisite features. However, the story forms Socrates’ image as ”protuberant lips, flat nose, huge and lost eyes” which are quite different from typical Greek masculine features. Who can call such a different looking and thinking human an enlightened personality? What was true wisdom to Socrates? The reply we receive, is, true wisdom is the substance that makes us consistent, concentrated and convivial.

Athens had a typical code of conduct, and Socrates’ thought processes were rebellious towards those, and ultimately, as usual, it was suppressed by a death sentence. Society developed dislike and scorn towards him that made them hostile and reach to the conclusion that Socrates must be punished severely. Perhaps, his devotion and utmost patriotism for his native, Athens, did not fade a bit. To him the law that governed his city was above everything and he was a law abiding citizen towards his society. He was motivated to leave Athens, save his life from punishment and settle down in Sparta, which valued him and promised to take his chair. But to him doing so was not only cowardice but also disrespect and swindling towards the law that had protected him and nourished him from the past 70 years.

This tale, gives us an insight to the three centres to struggle of the thinker, i.e., eminence of Athens, Democracy and the thought that enforces seeking of truth.
