Socratis et Socraticorum Reliquiae Source
Socratis et Socraticorum Reliquiae Source presents the transcription of the collection of testimonies about Socrates and Socratics (Socratis et Socraticorum Reliquiae) originally edited by G. Giannantoni.
The main goal of our project is clear and simple: we have converted into digital form all the witnesses regarding Socrates and the so-called Minor Socratics. Our basis of reference for the production of such a virtual book is the sole, complete collection available nowadays, namely that edited by Gabriele Giannantoni (1990)2. It is perhaps useful to reflect on the actual and inspiring scope of our enterprise. We want to repropose - and 'disseminate' in a capillary way, so we hope - the rich tradition about Socrates (as well as information and witnesses about some important, although not always rightly evaluated, philosophers linked to him). A reasonable question is in the air: why?
