Socrates made the correct choice to continue with his Apology after he received this guilty verdict Socrates continued his defense after he received the guilty verdict for several reasons I think the reasons why he continued his defense are he wanted to acknowledge the Athenians who voted for his acquittal and guilt and the jury still had to decide Socrates punishment When the jury gave him the death penalty Socrates continued his defense to tell the people who found him guilty that he was not afraid of death When Socrates continued his defense after he was sentenced to death he was justifying his actions in court that may have influenced the jury to give him the death sentence He defended himself for not crying or begging to the jurors in order to avoid the death sentence and pointed out the irony of the citys brave men who do anything to avoid a death sentence Also Socrates warned those whom convicted him that even when he dies people will still question others and that his death will just encourage people to question others beliefs and the status quo I agree with Socrates that it is a disgrace to Athens when men start crying to avoid punishment However Socrates should have recognized why those people beg to avoid death I think they beg to avoid death because in their beliefs they only have one life on Earth Since they only have one life on Earth they might as well stay on Earth as long as they can I think that Socrates did believe that life was precious but he did not say anything about it to the jury because he did not want to give the jurors whom convicted him any pleasure in his sufferings Socrates was an intelligent person but I can see why he had many enemies When Socrates debated people he made them feel stupid and embarrassed Since nobody likes to feel stupid
