Reading from chapter 3 of his book Understanding Plato, Professor Laurence Houlgate explains how Plato's dialogue Apology is best understood by breaking it down into four parts. Each part is discussed in detail, showing how some of Socrates' defenses are inductive and others are deductive, each argument challenges his accusers to think critically about the charges they have brought against him. Readers who want to follow along can acquire a copy by going to the website -- www.houlgatebooks.com -- and click on the book cover that will take you to the Amazon.com purchase page ($4.99 for the eBook version).
