Phaedo III: Note on the Immortality of the Soul
The Phaedo is a conversation which Socrates has with his friends before his death. In it Socrates attempts to convey the way he thinks about life and death, his vision of life and what he considers important. What is distinctive of his vision is that in it death does not appear as a threat and so as something to be feared. The notion of the soul’s immortality is the notion of something in one’s life which death cannot destroy.
