With the Peloponnesian War and disease raging, the life of Socrates becomes intertwined with that of the notorious Alcibiades during the most influential time of the philosopher's life. It is during his mid-life years that Socrates emerges as a figure that is both revered and reviled, and initially manages to avoid the fate of so many others that rose to prominence in classical Athens.

This first book in the Sophronismos series is a work of historical fiction that is intended for those interested in history, philosophy, and biographies. Fans of non-fiction will also find extensive information about daily life and events of the time that should satiate your need for factual knowledge. This book tells a story that is entertaining, and at times moving, incorporating passionate moments and timeless themes.
