To what extent can people help their souls arrive at their origin in the hereafter? Were Socratic elements in the Platonism of the imperial age considered a helpful orientation in this world? Michael Erler shows that what Socrates identified as 'true politics' in Plato's Gorgias played an important role in caring for one's own soul and those of others.
