In time each of us will die, arriving at a place defined today by medical and legal benchmarks. Death and dying surround us as the shadow in the cycle of life. In the Phaedo, Plato guides us through a rich dialog of Socrates and friends on the day their teacher faces death. Socrates describes the art of dying as a process of separating the soul from the body and entering Hades, the mythic underworld. This presentation focuses on his art of dying.
