Socrates Moral Ethics
term, that is an ironist whose great triumph was to make all things problematical 2 - "like Samson, Socrates shakes the pillars which support the temple of knowledge and hurls. Socrates exhibited a daimonion a divine sign or inner voice which issued prohibitory messages in periods of Socratic spells (which some writers find suggestive of epilepsy). From another point of view, his recourse to the platitudes of popular morality must have been in large part a sort of outer camouflage well designed to afford him secret amusement. In this manner, knowledge is sought as a means to ethical action. Is not the separation the important of water and release of the soul from the body their especial study?" 1 Socrates himself actually never taught such a "death".

First of all comes the idea of the Good. Finally, we can see better what the inward conversion he preached consisted of, and how it differed from the Indian effort toward deliverance. It seems to me that in order to characterize the ethical thought of Socrates insofar as we can know it through Plato and Xenophon, and Aristotle - we must construct the following picture: The Good.
