The Memorable Thoughts of Socrates by Xenophon

Description

The Memorable Thoughts of Socrates by Xenophon

In writing he was clear and to the point; his practical mind made his work interesting. His "Anabasis" is a true story as delightful as a fiction; his "Cyropaedia" is a fiction full of truths. He wrote "Hellenica, " that carried on the history of Greece from the point at which Thucydides closed his history until the battle of Mantineia. He wrote a dialogue between Hiero and Simonides upon the position of a king, and dealt with the administration of the little realm of a man's household in his "OEconomicus, " a dialogue between Socrates and Critobulus, which includes the praise of agriculture.
