The Socratic Problem

In this lecture the Socratic problem is investigated, which is whether we can arrive at knowledge of the historical Socrates, or whether he will always remain nothing but a work of fiction. The Socrates of Plato’s dialogues are also examined and the question as to whether Plato was using Socrates as a mouthpiece for his own views, or espousing the actual ideas of the real Socrates.
