Question(s) of the week: The text by Plato we are reading this week is called The Apology. But in what sense is it an “apology” and whose apology is it?

Explain why the Athenians accused him of this crime and evaluate whether or not you think Socrates offered a compelling defense of his own case. Do you think Socrates wanted to be exonerated?
