Summary
The best way to try to understand a civilization remote from us by 2500 years is to dramatize its most glorious moments. As we hear the people - great and small, men and women, bureaucrat and philosopher - we discover how their concerns were much like our own! Socrates and his disciples discuss timeless issues - the danger of democracy deteriorating into anarchy; how unbridled liberty can make the father fearful of the son and ultimately lead to tyranny. Antigone's defiance of Creon in an excerpt from ANTIGONE, reflects moral principle vs. inflexible authority. We see how the "War Establishment" was mocked by early "women liberationists" in the uproarious comedy, LYSISTRATA. And finally, the eternal philosophical problem of how man faces death is shown in the death of Socrates, whose courage and nobility have spanned the centuries
