This work is a necessary prerequisite to our future analysis of Xenophon's Oeconomicus. Indeed, the understanding of this dialogue presupposes the understanding of all Xenophon's socratic dialogues, including Xenophon's Symposium. This paper presents a concise analysis of this dialogue, based on Xenophon's less well known but decisive discussion on political life.
