In contrast, Socrates arguments are bit more egotistical. He believes in an opinion not from the majority, but from an expert. In the first argument, egotistical, Socrates describes this by believing that the most important thing is not living, but living a good life. Therefore, it is not worth following the opinion of the majority if it means sacrificing something that is important for having a good life. Due to the first argument, Socrates has to consider whether it is morally right to pay off the guards to escape, deontological.
Beginning to consider the consequences of Athens, Crito states that the laws and the city itself could be destroyed if he escaped due to the fact that a city without laws and/or higher restrictions would not remain intact for long. In Socrates last argument, egotistical, Socrates believes that if he would escape, he would not only be harming the city, but also his own soul. In his opinion, being responsible for harm to others is something that causes harm to one’s soul. Additional harm to his soul would come from breaking an agreement.
For example, breaking the laws of Athens.
