Socratici viri is a Latin phrase which translates as "Socrates' men"—though it is more usually used to mean "disciples of Socrates" or "followers of Socrates". These are those, usually Greeks, who owe a lot of their philosophical reasoning and method to Socrates. Sometimes the phrase just refers to those in the Socratic dialogues and especially Plato, though it may be extended to modern-day followers of Socrates.
