AbstractThis article argues that Giannozzo Manetti's Life of Socrates (c. 1440), seemingly a random pastiche of ancient sources, is in fact carefully constructed to present a particular image of Socrates, a Socrates who can serve as a model for the humanistic movement of the early fifteenth century.
