Caption: Socrates (c.470-399 BC), Ancient Greek philosopher, credited with introducing a new and critical attitude in philosophy and science. He was said to be the wisest of all men, but having been convicted of neglecting the city gods and corrupting the youth of Athens, he was forced to drink a fatal draught of hemlock. Artwork, after an ancient bust, from the 19th century book Vies des Savants Illustres.
