The Trial of Socrates by I.F. Stone, 1988

"Because Plato turned the trial of his master, Socrates, into a trial of Athens and of democracy. He used it to demonstrate that the common people were too ignorant, benighted and fickle to entrust with political power. In Plato’s "Apology," the contrast drawn between the nobility of Socrates and the grim verdict of his juror-judges indicted democracy in the eyes of posterity. And thanks to his genius, no other trial except that of Jesus has so captured the imagination of Western man."
-- I. F. Stone on why the trial of Socrates is still important
In unraveling the long-hidden issues of the most famous free speech case of all time, noted author I.F. Stone ranges far and wide over Roman as well as Greek history to present an engaging and rewarding introduction to classical antiquity and its relevance to society today. The New York Times called this national best-seller an "intellectual thriller."

『蘇格拉底的審判』解讀問題
關於蘇格拉底之死的法律定罪與自辯的解讀,從『柏拉圖對話錄』中的『自辯篇』問世以來,就成為整個西方哲學家二千數百年來熱門問題,我也從青少年時期,就深受影響,迄今依然.
可是,我最近讀到北大外國哲學新銳博士文聘元所寫的一本有趣的『西方哲學的故事』一書,2000年出版,有六百多頁,其中他舉出西方古今有六種不同的解釋流派與觀點,讓我大開眼界.因為我的看法,只是其中的一種而已.
在此書中,他又提到美國記者斯東,曾花十年才寫出『蘇格拉底的審判』一書,我便在網路上下載來看,不得了,這是作者從七十歲寫到八十歲才完成,並出版.中譯本是2003年才出版的.
可是,我在今天之前,完全不知.由此可知,新知增長,並不是那樣水到渠成的,而是需要的運氣的.

斯東(Stone)著《蘇格拉底的審判》(The Trial ofSocrates) 

一本書的網:斯東(Stone)著《蘇格拉底的審判》(The Trial of Socrates)

也許1995年初讀本書中文本,受到極大的震憾。
2004/6/17重讀,仍然覺得受益匪淺。我當然可以找出牛津大學出版社翻譯本的許多問題和缺點,不過還是無可取代的。 
這本書的內容很有意思和意義。
著者的一輩子很特別。
譯者也算是位文人。
出版社鼎鼎大名,本書牛津大學出版社還有一級不尋常的信息:All attempts to trace the copyright holder have proved unsuccessful. 我十年前猜原作者至少放棄該書的所有翻譯本之版權。
要寫「有內容、真誠」的介紹文章,可能太花我力氣(我打字很慢,錯字不少),所以就先將我作的引得告訴大家。
