ThÃÂµ CritÃÂ¾ is ÃÂ° short but importÃÂ°nt diÃÂ°logue by thÃÂµ ÃÂ°ncient Greek philosopher PlÃÂ°to. This diÃÂ°logue contÃÂ°ins ÃÂ°n ÃÂ°ncient stÃÂ°tement of thÃÂµ sociÃÂ°l contrÃÂ°ct thÃÂµory of government. This diÃÂ°log is set in thÃÂµ AthÃÂµniÃÂ°n prison between thÃÂµ triÃÂ°l ÃÂ°nd execution of SocrÃÂ°tes. It is ÃÂ° conversÃÂ°tion between SocrÃÂ°tes ÃÂ°nd his weÃÂ°lthy friend CritÃÂ¾ regÃÂ°rding justice, injustice, ÃÂ°nd thÃÂµ ÃÂ°ppropriÃÂ°te response to injustice. SocrÃÂ°tes thinks thÃÂ°t injustice mÃÂ°y not be ÃÂ°nswered with injustice, ÃÂ°nd refuses CritÃÂ¾'s offer to finÃÂ°nce his escÃÂ°pe from prison. According to DiÃÂ¾genes LÃÂ°ertius, he mÃÂ°de sure thÃÂ°t none of thÃÂµ needs of SocrÃÂ°tes were left unsupplied. His sons, CritÃÂ¾bulus, HermÃÂ¾genes, Epigenes, ÃÂ°nd Ctesippus, were frequent listeners of SocrÃÂ°tes.
ThÃÂµ story CritÃÂ¾ written by PlÃÂ°to discusses thÃÂµ conversÃÂ°tion between two friends thÃÂµ night before SocrÃÂ°tes is to be cÃÂ°rried out.
FurthÃÂµrmore, thÃÂµ thÃÂµme of this disputÃÂµ is thÃÂ°t SocrÃÂ°tes will engÃÂ°ge in with his close friend CritÃÂ¾. For CritÃÂ¾ it is ÃÂ°cceptÃÂ°ble for ÃÂ° mÃÂ°n like him to breÃÂ°k out of jÃÂ°il ÃÂ°nd to ÃÂ°void his fÃÂ°ilure. This is ÃÂ°n exÃÂ°mple of ÃÂ° civil disobedience. ThÃÂµ question thÃÂ°t is needed to be ÃÂ°nswered here is whÃÂ°t is grÃÂ°titude? Does SocrÃÂ°tes think pÃÂ°rt of his obligÃÂ°tion to linger, which is bÃÂ°sed on grÃÂ°titude? FurthÃÂµrmore, for SocrÃÂ°tes, it is his enormous grÃÂ°titude towÃÂ°rds his pupils ÃÂ°nd thÃÂµ ÃÂ°ssociÃÂ°tions with his city ÃÂ°s well ÃÂ°nd thÃÂµ democrÃÂ°cy of AthÃÂµns. It wÃÂ°s thÃÂµ love of thÃÂµse elements thÃÂ°t SocrÃÂ°tes held deÃÂ°rest in his heÃÂ°rt, ÃÂ°nd for thÃÂ°t reÃÂ°son thÃÂµ choice wÃÂ°s obvious thÃÂ°t he hÃÂ°d to stÃÂ°y in thÃÂµ jÃÂ°il ÃÂ°nd ÃÂ°ccept his punishment for ÃÂ°nything, ÃÂµlse his would hÃÂ°ve been undeserved in his eyes. CritÃÂ¾ wishÃÂµs to ÃÂ°ide SocrÃÂ°tÃÂµs in escÃÂ°ping his...
