PERSONS OF THE DIALOGUE: / Phaedo, who is the narrator of the dialogue to Echecrates of Phlius. Socrates, Apollodorus, Simmias, Cebes, Crito and an Attendant of the Prison. / SCENE. Plato's Concept of the Body and Soul Distinction A:Plato believed that humans could be broken down into 3 parts: the body, the mind and the soul. The body is the physical part of the body that is only concerned with the material world, and through which we are able to experience the world we live in. it wants to experience self-gratification.

In his Socratic dialogues The Phaedo and The Meno, Plato advances a theory concerning the acquisition of human these dialogues, Plato asserts that people acquire knowledge through recollection; that is, nothing is learned new, from experience. Knowledge exists a priori in the human soul, and while certain experiences may trigger the recollection of a priori truths, knowledge comes. Lecture 4 - Introduction to Plato's Phaedo; Arguments for the Existence of the Soul, Part II Overview. After a brief introduction to Plato’s Phaedo, more arguments are offered in this lecture in defense of the existence of an immaterial emphasis here is on the fact that we need to believe in the existence of a soul in order to explain the claim that we possess free will.

For I suspect, Socrates, that the notion of the soul which we are all of us inclined to entertain, would also be yours, and that you too would conceive the body to be strung up, and held together, by the elements of hot and cold, wet and dry, and the like, and that the soul is the harmony or due proportionate admixture of them. Plato was a pupil of Socrates, after the death of Socrates he went on to rebuild his dialogues, these dialogues recounted the beliefs Socrates had in regards to immortality of the soul. Phaedo, Apology, Euthyphro and Crito are known as tetralogy as they deal with the trial and eventual death of Socrates.
