Waiting for minimum critic reviews


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.
