There are many more wonderful things to find to praise in Socrates. But although there would probably be as much to say about any other of his activities and habits, this I consider the greatest miracle, that he is not like any other man, neither of the ancients nor of those now alive’ (220c). 38 4.

Here is not the place to discuss the details of this most controversial argument, which lasts almost to the very end of the dialogue.

Equally important is the fact that Socrates appears to reciprocate. Recall his sincere and intimate encomium of his friend’s forebears (cf. ô file Critia: 156a):25: given the preeminence of his ancestors, it is likely (cf. 27 Around 432 BC then, the Platonic Socrates appears to believe that Critias and especially Charmides represent a great opportunity for Athens. But he also indicates that the realization of that opportunity depends on one, important thing: the presence of sôphrosynê in the soul, ‘from which every good and bad derives for the body and the whole of a man’ (156e).
