The most famous philosopher of Classical Greece, Socrates was an Athenian citizen who revolutionized the way people thought about themselves and the world. Famous for his questioning teaching method and dogged search for the truth, he eventually provoked the fury of the Athenians and was found guilty of impiety and corrupting the city's youth. His execution profoundly changed ideas about what it meant to be heroic since he died only because he refused to abandon his principles.
