Socrates is remembered for saying "the unexamined life is not worth living." Does this relate to his decision to drink the hemlock and die as a capital crimal?


Question asked by: knowitall

No, the too are not related. This was indeed Socrates opinion, as he thought it was central to humanity to question ourselves and the world around us and deduce our own conclusions rather than wander through aimlessly without questioning anything - the trait of the animals.

However this does not really relate to his decision to drink the hemlock as fabled.
