Gabriel Danzig argues that the effort to defend Socrates from a variety of contemporary charges helps explain some of the central philosophical arguments and literary features that appear in these works.

Concentrating on the two Apologies, Crito, Euthyphro, Xenophons Symposium and Memorabilia, Lysis, and Oeconommicus, Danzig argues that the apologetic efforts were essential for rebuilding the community of Socratic friends and companions, which was devastated by the trial and death of Socrates.

The Socratic writings are not merely literary or philosophical endeavors, but also political acts of great competence.
