    Default Re: what is the direct object in this sentence?

    That introduces a clause, and a clause can function as a the object of a verb. Moreover, the direct object is the answer to the question, What did Socrates desire?

    Ex: Socrates desired <verb's object here> .
    Ex: What did Socrates desire?

    Does that help?
