Plato's dialogue Phaedo portrays Socrates in prison awaiting execution and discussing with his friends the fate of the soul after death. In this edition, consisting of introduction, text and commentary, Professor Rowe guides the reader through the difficulties--linguistic, literary and philosophical--of individual passages and of the dialogue as a whole. The comparative beginner is not neglected, but the commentary is intended for any student, classical scholar, or philosopher with an interest in the close reading of Plato. View more info

It has been said that, after the Bible, Plato's dialogues are the most influential books in Western culture. Of the dialogues, the "Symposium" is the most delightful and accessible, requiring no special knowledge of ancient Greek philosophy or customs. Dramatizing a party in fifth-century B.C. Athens, the deceptively unassuming "Symposium" introduces--in the guise of convivial after-dinner conversation--profound ideas about the nature of love. In "Phaedrus, " here published together with the "Symposium, " Plato discusses the place of eloquence in expounding truth. In both dialogues, Socrate... View more info
