In view that antiquity the Phaedo has been thought of the resource of "the dual pillars of Platonism" – the idea of rules and the immortality of the soul. Burger’s try to hint the underlying argument of the paintings as a complete results in a thorough rethinking of the prestige of these doctrines. The circulation of that argument is marked via the structural department of the discussion into halves, associated and separated by way of a relevant interlude within which Socrates warns opposed to the good hazard of "misology," or lack of belief in emblems. That possibility, which threatens the very threat of philosophic inquiry, involves overshadow the risk posed by means of the terror of loss of life, which prompted the unique sequence of arguments. The flip this necessitates, from the 1st to the second one 1/2 the discussion, brings a few transformation of the knowledge of information, the tips, the soul, demise, and immortality. With this "second sailing," as Socrates calls it, the "Platonism" provided within the Phaedo emerges as exactly the goal of which the discussion is a critique.
