Summary:"You shouldn't be afraid of death". This is the theme of the “Axiochus”. Socrates tries to help Axiochus to overcome the fear of death by using a variety of arguments. This consolatory dialogue suggests an indirect comparison between two opposite concepts of reality. Overcoming the fear of death entails a particular insight into the problem of the nature of man and of the cosmos and leads to reflect on the relationship between the search for happiness and the search for truth.This book offers an extensive study on the pseudo-Platonic “Axiochus”. The introductory essay places the “Axiochus” in a definite historical context. The new critical edition is based on a comprehensive study of the manuscript tradition. The new Italian translation and the extensive lemmatic commentary allow the reader to fully understand this text.
