The Apology of Socrates by Plato is the Socratic dialogue that presents the speech of legal self-defense which Socrates presented at his Athenian trial in 399 BC. Specifically, the Apology of Socrates is a defense against the legal charges of 'corrupting Athen's youth' and 'not believing in the same gods the city believes in, but rather in other daimonia that are foreign' to Athenian life. This version was translated by Benjamin Jowett. The e-text was prepared by Sue Asscher. The text is a Project Gutenberg e-text, which is a public domain work distributed by Professor Michael S. Hart through the Project Gutenberg Association at Carnegie Mellon University. The text and the translation are in the public domain.
