Abstract

The word of Socrates is both "enchantress", "editor" and "generating". The good word is the one that leads to virtue, in its connection with the truth. Through reading Charmides 155e2-157c6, the author exposes the particular characterization of the Socratic dialogue as a drug or as the practice pursued by Socrates doctor induces the other party to a transformation of the style of life.
