Composed many years after Socrates' death, these dialogues were assembled by one of the great philosopher's former students and recapture many examples of his conversations with his disciplines and fellow Athenians. Although the dialogues of Plato, the better-known student, established Socrates at the foundations of Western thought and philosophy, Xenophon's writings about his teacher added substantially to the ancient Greek sage's literary and philosophical legacy.

A philosopher, soldier, and historian of ancient Greece, Xenophon (c.430-354 B.C.) was a disciple of Socrates; he and Plato are the only two students whose records survive of the philosopher's conversation, life, and teachings. In the Anabasis and Hellenica, Xenophon reported on events of his own era; the former recounts his participation in a Persian civil war, and the latter provides an important account of the end and aftermath of the Peloponnesian War.
