About this Episode

Plato's dialogue pits Socrates against a wealthy friend willing to help him escape his death sentence. Socrates refuses, because he believes it would not be just. When should we as citizens ignore an unjust law? According to Socrates, we owe an obligation to the polis (society) that transcends individual justice.
