  2. Based on Plato's "Meno." Socrates and Meno delay a game of golf to discuss the origins of virtue, knowledge, and the soul. Apparently, young men from Thessaly speak with Australian accents.

  3. Based on Plato's "Apology." Socrates tells the men of Athens why he became a philosopher, what sort of wisdom he is seeking, and why he isn't afraid of death. He's a weirdo--but a weirdo with a purpose.

  4. Based on Plato's "Crito." Crito thinks Socrates should escape from prison and save his life. Socrates thinks he must do what is good and just--even to the point of death. Crito's stylish sunglasses fail to convince him.

  5. Based on Saint Augustine's book "Against the Academics." Augustine refutes skepticism, explains what Cicero was really up to, and shows the epistemological significance of the Incarnation.
