Sinopsis: Xenophon of Athens (circa 430 – 354 B.C.) Greek poet, historian, soldier and philosopher, living at a time of momentous events in Ancient Greek history, writing about the philosophy of Socrates, the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta, and the Persian expedition that formed the basis of his most famous work, Anabasis. In addition to his own works, he influenced the account of the Peloponnesian War written by the famous Greek historian Thucydides. Although he was recognized as a great writer and poet in his lifetime, Xenophon’s involvement with Spartan politics and fighting led to his exile from Athens, and his association with Socrates probably did not help. His short treatise on Sparta’s government is considered one of the first examples of political philosophy. Xenophon’s The Symposium is about a dinner party that involves Socrates talking with a group of people, with Socrates leading a discussion that touches on several topics. Xenophon’s work similar in many ways to Plato’s more famous Symposium. As with The Memorable Thoughts of Socrates, Xenophon teaches readers about Socrates’ philosophy, and his admiration of the great philosopher is apparent.
