In questo complesso e toccante resoconto delle ultime ore di Socrate, Platone espone il testamento spirituale e gli estremi ragionamenti del maestro, che nella sua cella, in attesa del momento fatale, si sofferma a riflettere sull’anima e sulla sua immortalità. «Platone – scrive Ezio Savino – tocca le corde più vibranti della sua gamma poetica presentandoci con tono sublime e insieme di classica semplicità gli estremi istanti del maestro. La morte è un sereno e liberatore trapasso, una guarigione dall’infermità della vita corporea: perciò Socrate, nelle sue ultime parole, raccomanda ai suoi di rendere grazie con il sacrificio di un gallo ad Asclepio, il dio della salute riacquistata.»

Το έργο του Πλάτωνα είναι μια πραγματεία "Περί ψυχής". Το θεωρώ ανώτερο του αντίστοιχου του Αριστοτέλη, αν και δηλώνω προτίμηση στον δεύτερο. Δεν παύει βέβαια να πραγματεύεται ένα θέμα μακράν ξεπερασμένο, για μένα, για το τι συμβαίνει στην ψυχή μετά το θάνατο ή πριν την γέννηση. Παρ' όλα αυτά, όπως Leggi tutto
