Socrates and Faithfulness
Socrates Manipulating his Accusers?
Faithfulness is a vague word that can be defined in several contexts. The word itself, "faithfulness," most obviously means full of faith, but the word is more obtusely inclusive in its definition. In the sense of marriage, it is most commonly defined as not committing adultery. Faithfulness can also be expanded to include devotion to one's family as well as humanity itself. There is even a physical sense to faithfulness: a change in behavior can denote one's commitment to another person or idea, as in attending church every Sunday to show faithfulness to a divine being. The infamous philosopher Socrates struggled with his ideas of faithfulness throughout his trial in Athens. In his apology, he denounces the power of wisdom and the accusations that he does not have faith in the divine, but he may have been forcing the public to question their well-founded beliefs which, in turn, caused them to sentence him to death.
