So, is there something positive to say about this dialogue? And now, the fightin' Phaedo! That's all well and good Socrates, says either Simmias or Cebes, I'm afraid I can't remember at this point these are two of the guys, presumably Socrates's friends, sitting with Socrates and Phaedo , but surely you must be aware that many people fear that the soul is simply extinguished upon the death of the body.
