The Apology is an account of Socrates' speech during his trial, defending himself against charges of blaspheme and corrupting Athenian youths. Crito is a dialogue about justice and social obligation in which Socrates accepts his death sentence. In Phaedo, Socrates attempts to prove the immortality of the soul.
