Is Socrates a Sophist?

No.

Socrates spent his life fighting against the sophists (Gorgias, Protagoras in particular).

Socrates criticizes sophists including use of demagogy, while he does not reason byargument.

The Sophists seek only defeat in the verbal jousting, Socrates only seeks the truth.
