Publisher's Summary

In Euthyphro, Socrates is on his way to the court, where he must defend himself against serious charges brought by religious and political authorities. On the way he meets Euthyphro, an expert on religious matters who has come to prosecute his own father. Socrates questions Euthyphro's claim that religion serves as the basis for ethics. Euthyphro is not able to provide satisfactory answers to Socrates' questions, but their dialogue leaves us with the challenge of making a reasonable connection between ethics and religion.

    I prefer actual reading. But life gets in the way.

    "Euthyphro is one of the better dialogues"

    This troupe does a great job of bringing the characters to life, and making the arguments digestible. The translation is thoroughly modern, but does a masterful job of capturing the meaning of the concepts at work, and the attitudes of the characters.

    Story
    "Well balanced and engaging. A good start."

    Timeless, what is deceptively simple is a profoundly complex affair. What is piety, our duties to the Gods and by extension our parents? To get to there, the larger question that will haunt us through all the other dialogues: what can we know in this life but that which is good? The justly good and best life, Eudaemonism. Ultimately we are our own and necessary arbiters. To live fulfilled, we seek justice, but what is that really...

    The acting is smooth and provocative, sacrificing sarcasm in the written for inquisitiveness in conversation. This is a good place to start and could not have been an accidental choice to begin the Dialogues.
