Avenue Socrate is located in the Beauport borough of Quebec City, east of Rue Seigneuriale between Rue du Ruisseau and Rue Carole. 

Avenue Socrate is named in honour of the classic Greek philosopher Socrates, who was born in Athens circa 470 BC and died there circa 399 BC. He is considered to be one of the founders of Western philosophy even though he never wrote or founded a school.
