Description

Crito is a dialogue by the ancient Greek philosopher Plato. It is a conversation between Socrates and his wealthy friend Crito regarding justice, injustice, and the appropriate response to injustice. Socrates thinks that injustice may not be answered with injustice, and refuses Crito's offer to finance his escape from prison. This dialogue contains an ancient statement of the social contract theory of government.

Part of the Encyclopaedia Britannica’s Great Books of the Western World set.

This book has 15 pages in the PDF version, and was originally written in around 360 BC; this is a translation by Benjamin Jowett.
