सुकरात यूनान के महान दार्शनिक थे । उनका जन्म ईसा मसीह के जन्म से 400 वर्ष पूर्व एथेंस नगर में हुआ था । वे न्याय के सिद्धान्तों में विश्वास करते थे । वे नगर में पैदल ही घूमते थे तथा लोगों को ज्ञान तथा सत्य के मार्ग पर चलने के लिए प्रेरित करते थे । वे एथेंस नगर को एक आदर्श राज्य बनाना चाहते थे । शीघ्र ही वे एक शिक्षक के रूप में प्रसिद्ध हो गये । यूनान के शासक सुकरात की बढ़ती हुई लोकप्रियता को सहन न कर सके । शीघ्र ही उन पर यह आरोप लगाया गया कि वे देश के युवकों को गुमराह कर रहे थे । यूनानी शासकों ने उन्हें जेल भेज दिया । न्यायालय ने उन्हें मृत्युदण्ड दिया । इस महान दार्शनिक का जीवन हमें सत्य तथा ज्ञान के मार्ग पर चलते रहने का सन्देश देता है ।
Ans. Socrates was a great philosopher of Greece. He was born in the city of Athense 400 years B.C. He believed in the principles of justice. He walked in the city on foot and inspired the people to go on the path of knowledge and truth. He wished to see the city of Athense as an ideal state. Very soon, he became popular as a teacher. The rulers of Greece could not bear the popularity of Socrates. In no time, he was charged that he was misleading the young of the country. The rulers of Greece sent him to prison. The court of justice sentenced him to death. The life of this great philosopher conveys us a message of going on the path of the truth and knowledge incessantly.
