Plato ranks among the most familiar ancient philosophers, along with his teacher, Socrates, and his student, Aristotle. In addition to writing philosophical dialogues - used to teach logic, ethics, rhetoric, religion, and mathematics as well as philosophy - he founded Athens' Academy, the Western world's first institution of higher learning.
The old Greek chestnut gets a new translation by Allen, who has received kudos for his lively translation of Plato's dialogs. Students mystified by the old Cornford translation (I know I was) might find this one easier to grasp. This edition also has an intro by Allen. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
