In this paper, this exegesis argues and logically validates the innocence of Socrates for unwillingly corrupting the Athenian youth. The illogical and unethical legal proceedings against Socrates do not explain accurately how Socrates has willingly corrupted the youth, since Meletus cannot educate him on his wrong doings. This validates Socrates argument on the greater good toward others, and how one must be consciously aware of dangerous and harmful acts against society to be brought to the criminal courts.

From the Paper:

"This exegesis of 'The Apology' by Plato will examine the logical argument by Socrates against Meletus's charge of against the philosopher of corrupting the Athenian youth. In this manner, the objective analysis of the exegesis will examine why Socrates does not willingly corrupt the youth, and that Meletus's charge presupposes illegal application of the law before Socrates can be educated for ignorance in wrongdoings. The basis of the first lines of this section of the Apology directly relate to the supposition that Socrates does not willingly harm the youth of Athens in his philosophical teachings to them. "
