Why did Athens wait so long to put Socrates on trial?
Write a 3 to 4 page paper answering the following: Socrates had been teaching in Athens all his life, unbothered. Yet when he was seventy and had only a few years left to live, Athens prosecuted and then executed him. Why did Athens wait so long to put Socrates on trial? What factors– personal, political, cultural, global- influenced his trial in 399 BCE? Use material from the dialogues we’ve read, the Hughes film, the research you did on Alcibiades and Critias, and the Stone article to help you answer this Why Then question. Make sure to cite the sources you’re using in your paper
